Jameela Jamil, a warm up Feminist, explains why Airbrushing should be discouraged

A British actress, Jameela Jamil, who gained popularity from a Television season called, “The Good Place”, lately received a lot of praise on her views exhibiting a feminist touch. She used her twitter account as a medium of sharing her views about different issues arising that she detected in showbiz industry. For BBC’s latest piece, she came up with her tweet targeting editing applications, filter camera apps, Photoshop and air brushing. Empowering female gender, she said that these applications “are legitimizing the patriarchy’s absurd aesthetic standards, that women should be attractive to the straight, male gaze at all costs.” “I think it’s a disgusting tool that has been weaponized, predominantly against women, and is responsible for so many more problems than we realize because we are blinded by the media, our culture and our society”. Sharing her own experience from childhood, Jameela Jamil further tweeted that “I suffered from eating disorders as a teenager and so I know how damaging “perfect” images in magazines can be.”
