Sam Learning's Anorexic Girl Avatars

 


Ok, forgive me.This is from an online study site in the UK called Sam Learning. I know they are trying but really having so many girl avatars with hands on their hips looking anorexic - is that a good thing for 11 or 12-year-old (or any age girl) to be looking at. There is a mix but it's nowhere near what the mix is for the boys - in pose, in dress, in body shape. Normalise it!
