Outrage, disgust and amusement are all apt reactions to the variety of controversial takes on body image featured. From flawless, Photoshopped celebs, to obese pets and pro-anorexia advertising, it's apparent that while the world is ever-changing and we are evolving, body image is still a hot topic among people of all demographics.
