~Stuff I pinned on my TIAW, Wisdom, and Stuff That’s Wrong boards.
~A great article from a woman who identifies as asexual.
~It took me awhile to get around to reading this article b/c I feel like, if I’m going to speak against the BMI, I should hold that consistent and not assume that just because a woman falls into the “anorexic” range on the chart means she IS anorexic – for all I know she’s just petite and as unfairly treated as women with a lot of muscle mass who are labeled as “obese”. BUT! I finally read the article, and I think it’s far more about widening the diversity among models and plus-sized models, and providing clothes to a diverse consumer market than it is about models being anorexic or not.
~One mom’s response when her daughter calls herself fat. I’M VERKLEMPT.
~I’m buying these. (Seen on Chookooloonks.)
~“We want to promote a more socially responsible approach to exercise where people are more interested in gaining strength or muscle mass, working on form or learning a new skill instead of focusing on a number on a scale.” AMEN TO THAT. I haven’t owned a scale in years. How about you?
