"If they do (and I think we all agree they do, to one extent or another), then do AI-generated images count as truthful?
What if we label them as such? Is that enough?
Suppose we see beautiful people created by AI, and we know they are created by AI. Can we still have bad consequences from that (e.g. people not accepting
their own imperfect bodies), even if we know these people are not real?
At the moment, we know ads are photoshopped to look perfect (perfect skin, perfect figure), and that still has bad effects on people."
