Well that's true, but the idea is broken once reality kicks in.
Unless you're really really really dumb, you'll realize how full of shit movies and tv are.

The worst it can only do is make you believe crap you already believed in from the start.

Men nearly always follow the tracks made by others and proceed in their affairs by imitation, even though they cannot entirely keep to the tracks of others or emulate the prowess of their models. So a prudent man should always follow in the footsteps of great men and imitate those who have been outstanding. If his own prowess fails to compare with theirs, at least it has an air of greatness about it. He should behave like those archers who, if they are skillful, when the target seems too distant, know the capabilities of their bow and aim a good deal higher than their objective, not in order to shoot so high but so that by aiming high they can reach the target.

I repeat:

1. there are aspects of yourself you cannot change like your height, eye colour, jawline, cheekbones, balding head, intelligence that people are still made to feel inadequate about by the people that underwear ads always feature. their muscularity is the only thing most people can realistically follow.

Not really.
I desire a wiiu because "holy crap i grew up with mario and kirby and smash bros".
If I listened to the media I'd consider a PS4 or an Xbone. But I don't because PS4 doesn't have anything worth sticking around for and Xbone is the greatest money sucker in gaming.

At worst, media and news gets us used to certain things and makes us believe something we are not familiar with. I know I believed high school would be a lot more different than what it actually was, because T.V. told me a different story. But it doesn't make me believe that certain people are hot. At most, it makes me think certain people are more common than they really are since I barely get out.

"makes me think certain people are more common than they really are"

That is my only point

We've had attractive people since as long as we have had people. Nature, evolution, genetics, make us attracted to hot women (and men, if that's your thing). Not marketing.

there's a difference between knowing you didn't want something and not knowing you wanted it

>75% of walking time.

100 bucks you're a fatty . It only takes 3-5h a week bro, give it a try.

People dont lift because muh media brain wash, we lift for health, fun, self-realization and obviously because we are smart enought to realize that the hotter you're the better your life is. You feel inadecuate because either you're inadecuate or you're so stupid you cant distinguish a body with steroids for blood or a face ridicusly photoshoped from reality.

There is always someone hotter, smarter or better than you in a particular way just man up and get over it.

If people didn't feel inadequate from time to time then they would never strive to better themselves. It's the difference between saying "that guy is ripped, I want to be like him" and saying "I'm terribly out of shape but just as attractive as the guy who puts in the effort to look good and be fit." We should try to be like attractive people instead of minimizing their accomplishments.

1. there are aspects of yourself you cannot change like your height, eye colour, jawline, cheekbones, balding head, intelligence that people are still made to feel inadequate about by the people that underwear ads always feature. their muscularity is the only thing most people can realistically follow.

2. if making people feel bad about things worked then I would no one would be complaining about the unrealistic expectations and ideals touted by the media. If making people feel bad using unrealistic images the West would not have an epidemic of metabolic diseases. True is people feel adequate there is no negative incentive but clearly making them feel bad does not do anything either so might as well have people and the media accept bodies like those above.

But you don't have to buy it just because you saw it.
Do you buy everything you see on TV without thinking?

Of course, a company will make an ad so you'll want to buy it, but is not an obligation.
#36 - grantyboy (11/17/2014) [-]
My point isn't that you need t but the product but that the notion of media and advertisements not in any way shape or form moulding or influencing our preferences is ridiculous. Sure the media came from somewhere but what about people born since then - young people? Their ideals are not represented by unrealistic models but they adopt these because those are the only people allowed into the public eye.
User avatar #26 - FairyGodParents (11/17/2014) [-]
Except beautiful people are around us in everyday life. It's impossible to ignore good looking people. You compared something man made to something natural. I believe it's natural to desire a healthy looking physique, for mating purposes or whatever it may be. Advertisements just take advantage of what people are attracted to so they can sell their product. Advertisements don't create your interests, they just use them to boost sales.

Other than that this is a shit post. People need to quit being so damn self conscious and realize that this world is not a fair place. I hate all this feminest and equality shit. Equality can not exist and it never will.

Also this one bothers me more than others because body image and fitness is something that is changeable, there is really no excuse to get upset over this stuff, just because some people are lazy shits but don't want to be acknowledged as such
#34 - grantyboy (11/17/2014) [-]
You cant change your height, eye colour, skin tone or facial features very much but advertisements want you to believe that everyone has an even complexion, stands 6 feet+ with a BMI of 20 and has chiseled, interesting faces when this represents a fraction of the population. There are some things you cant change and making people feel inadequate for them wont make them change.

Actually, PS4 advertises to satisfy your need to be entertained and have fun.
You want to do something kick ass. So they tell you what they have to offer and you take it like a whore.

It's not like they're telling you that you're bored and your life is nothing without them.
#38 - grantyboy (11/17/2014) [-]
My point is not about Sony's advertising but that it is naive to think that the things we see in the media don't shape what we desire and what we regard as ideal.
