April, your message is very inspirational and I will take it to heart. Though I have actively seen gender roles and photoshopped beauty coloring my and my girl friend's experiences in adolescence. I am a 22 year old male and I have few if any of these prejudices against women. It's just spilled paint, darn it. Are young girls still sexualized?

Though a short presentation, this movie is deeply researched and is a very important supplement on any discussion of media and culture and the effects that advertising has on them; as such, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
