It’s everywhere

Regarding the BeingGirl post.

Apparently the chat speak is pervasive. Degree has a new ad campaign aimed at teens for their “OMG” moments. Also, you can show off UR skills in the gaming section of the website. Oye.

Besides talking down to girls and reinforcing beauty standards, beinggirl apparently carried an article advocating behavior reminiscent of eating disorders.

Another post with quotes from the article in question.
