It's the scandal that no one is talking about; more than 90,000 more young women than men are out of education, employment and training - so-called NEETs. It may be a tidy acronym but now is the time to stop sweeping this issue under the carpet.

Makeup is the bane of any teenage girls life. It's made to seem like you'll gain confidence and become overall a better person. But really all it does is wreck your confidence and make you look a caked troll. Surely natural beauty is the way forward?

The other huge problem about body dysmorphia is the normalisation and misuse of the term. You only have to look at gossip magazines covers to see celebrities mouthing about their muffin tops, slamming their cellulite and loathing their legs; thats human nature, its natural.

It's not Rihanna's job to live up to our ideal of the perfect role model for young women. She expresses herself for a living. She's very good at it.

We are constantly bombarded with messages in society that suggest, either directly or indirectly, that 'young' and 'sexy' go hand in hand. The new Kingsmill advert is a good example and it's already stirred up some controversy.
