People in the media are looked at as beautiful people whether they are seen in magazines or in television. They make it seem as if it is easy to look a certain way. People will go to great lengths to become a certain body type, including eating disorders and surgery. In a research done by South Carolina's Department of Mental Health, it shows that the death rate among girls ages fifteen through twenty-four with anorexia nervosa is higher than all other diseases. The media is influencing young people into getting these procedures. One person in particular is Heidi Moore, who has had more than 100,000 dollars in six years. Young teen girls are pressured into looking and acting a certain way more than young males. People have always had different answers of why this is, but one study done by the Social Issues Research Center (SIRC) says that it is because of the benefits you get from being attractive. The Social Issues Research Center claims that from an early age in life, girls notice more ways of getting recognition due to beauty. For example, they claim that woman who look more attractive tend to have better jobs than those who do not. They also claimed that as early as elementary school, teachers and other students gave special attention their 'good-looking' peers. They argued that the media is at fault. They are at fault because everywhere people go there will most likely be some sort of advertisement. Living in the cities can be even more difficult because of the thousands of newspapers, magazines, and sometimes celebrities themselves. Although there are laws that permit the American citizens to speak freely, teenagers often follow what seems to be the norm. These norms might be about clothing, hairstyles, and even friends. Sadly enough, people who act different are frequently isolated by others who do not. The people who set the trend are the most recognized people.
