A personal manifesto- read it! My Body Is Not A Democracy
Thanksgiving Is a Special Kind of Hell If You're Anorexic
When Science Met The Biggest Loser - study shows watchers of "the Biggest Loser" have increased bias toward fat people, increased prejudice AGAINST exercise. Additionally, former participants have ruined metabolisms, other negative effects. DO NOT READ THE COMMENTS.
accept your body. Not saying we shouldn't be reaching for the best but there comes a point when you have to accept who your are and not how you look. But ironically this link leads to an awesome workout with explainations to do each move! :) Beach Body http://30dayfitnesschallenges.com/classes/30-day-beach-body-challenge/
A common misconception is that health and the size/shape of your body are directly related. While there is sometimes a correlation, you really can't judge a stranger's health just by looking at them. These 5 women are all Olympians, and they're all healthy, despite the fact that they all look different!
Is it just me, or is this mindset just SUPER unhealthy? Shouldn't we learn to LOVE our bodies the way they are, instead of conforming and changing them to fit some "beauty" standard that the world tells us is normal? Being physically healthy is GREAT, but mental health is equally, if not more important. CHANGE YOUR MINDSET, NOT YOUR BODY.
This makes my heart break. We have taught generations of women that the only "acceptable" way to be in photographs is thin. To be embarrassed if they're not. To tell people to not take their picture. To say "oh just the face". To be shameful. This is bullshit.

Taylor Townsend, 16, is the world's No. 1 junior girls player and the reigning junior Australian Open singles champion. The USTA thinks she's too fat and out of shape to play.
from Brigid Barjaktarevic :This is victim blaming. It says that fat people are fat because they JUST DON'T BELIEVE THEY CAN LOSE WEIGHT, not because dieting is scientifically proven not to work, or because genetics determine one's weight range, or what have you. IT'S YOUR FAULT! AND YOU'RE BAD FOR BEING FAT! MORALLY WRONG!
Hey, all you fat people out there: the only reason you're still fat is because you're too fucking stupid to know it's possible to lose weight! I mean duh! OBVIOUSLY!
www.timberlake-ju... The original text of the sign he's holding is "Real Men Don't Buy Girls," part of an anti-human trafficking advertisement. Now, there's a lot of ways the ad is problematic (girls? really? yes, female humans who aren't adults are trafficked but a whole lot of grown ass women are trafficked as well, and it's kind of demeaning and paternalistic to refer to them as girls) but seeing this edit is kind of depressing.
