This paragraph is well organized and makes your point quite well.  It has a good thesis and the rest of the paragraph supports that thesis.  There are, however, a number of minor errors that detract from its quality. 

  • “An insight” should be “insights” since you are listing more than one here.
  • “Initially” means “at first” and you really want to say just “First…”
  • It should be “to a majority of people.”
  • “Which has led” or “which leads…” and then continuing on in that sentence “to become judgmental…”
  • In the sentence that starts “Secondly…” it should be “is entitled.”
  • Next sentence: delete “of” in the phrase “subject of matter.”
  • In the Dick and Sally sentence, it should be either “Dick asks Sally if he looks…” or Dick questions Sally about his weight and how he looks.”
  • Last sentence: “judgments with body image” should be “judgments about” or “judgments regarding…”

Again, this is a well-organized paragraph that makes your point nicely.
