Decentralize attractiveness

Wanting to be thin is not a problem in itself. But if society pressurizes people to be thin, then it is a problem.

I have a suggestion to fight unhealthy social pressure: decentralize norms of attractiveness. Instead of saying “She is beautiful”, say “I find her beautiful”, or “She is stereotypically beautiful”, or something like that. Similarly for other genders and for gender-neutral language.
