Young people today are obsessed with image not reality

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Young people today are obsessed with image not reality Young people today are obsessed with image not reality. This statement can be argued either way. It depends upon the person's own opinion. They may have a conservative or a relative opinion. In my opinion teenagers at this present day and age care more about their appearance than what is going on around them. Young people in the modern countries care about their reputation more and they feel that they should not go to school to study but people in India are worried about the school fees as they do not have enough money to send their children to school. Children who want to go to school cannot go because of money problems and they do not care about their reputation but children in the modern countries who have to go to school and have the chance to go to school do not want to go and bunk of school. The 3rd world countries strive for food whereas the modern countries strive not to get their food. ...read more.

Middle

Young people today have to compete with each other and it is with both of the genders that they have competitions with the way someone looks and what they wear. Young people today especially judge each other and if someone does not have the lasted clothes or designer wear then they get judged and people think that the person is not rich or is not the right person to hang around with. Girls have to compete with each other to be popular and to get the best looking guy but also guys have to as well because if they are geeky and have glasses then they get picked on and they are not popular so with guys the main thing is popularity as well as the best looking guy and how built they are. Some girls and guys give up eating to make sure they figure is perfect. Some young people today also have pop stars or sports stars as their idols and because they have well figures and are good looking, the young people try to follow them but they do not see that their idols make take drugs to ...read more.

Conclusion

elderly people look at the way the person presents itself and if the person is wearing a jumper with a hood and chunky necklaces then the older people which judge the person. They will think that the young person is a bad so the way you present yourself is now looked upon so young people especially have to present themselves well to not get a bad reputation. Another example it when you go for an interview and the interviewer will look at the way you present yourself and from that they will give you the job or not. The way you present yourself is the main key, because people observe you and they do that because they do not know your personality. Personally I think young people today no more about entertainment and fashion then about the problems in the real world. I feel that young people today are brought up in a sheltered environment where they cannot see the real world around them where millions of people are suffering. Therefore all in all, if posed the question 'are young people today are obsessed with image not reality' I would agree. ...read more.
