The question of whether or not Photoshop should be used on social media has been the subject of fierce debate.

Some users don’t see a problem with it, while others believe altering images poses a dangerous threat to those who believe they are real.

Popular model and blogger Amanda Steele is the latest person to speak out on the subject. In a series of tweets, the 27-year-old argued against people who “edit themselves so much on Instagram.”

Her main point was that it’s impossible for anyone to meet the standard of beauty Photoshopping creates.

“People edit themselves so much on Instagram it’s sad that people can’t just appreciate natural beauty,” Steele tweeted to her 991,000 followers. “How is ANYONE supposed to live up to these expectations when they are false??”

In particular, she called out “influencers” with large social followings. “Making your personal profile [an] unrealistic version of yourself is not fair,” she wrote.

“There are so many girls out there wondering why they aren’t that beautiful or skinny etc… you have no idea what you put these girls thru,” she tweeted.

Whether or not you agree with Steele’s stance on Photoshopping, her call to “NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF TO PEOPLE ONLINE” is a message we can get behind.
