I’ve already talked about my issues regarding my naturally low weight and I have to say that this ad:
makes me feel BAD about my body. Anorexia IS a disease and beauty does have NOTHING to do with the size that you wear, so why is the size zero “not a size”? That’s MY size…
I know that I don’t know what it’s like to have an eating disorder, but I do know what it’s like to be judged, criticized and demeaned because of my weight.
Instead of using negative statements to condemn a negative movement, can’t we use positive statements to encourage a positive movement?
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
BE HAPPY, BE HEALTHY.
LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN.
I fully, 100%, support this sentiment (no offense intended Sofia Bush, this Kenneth Tong guy sounds like an ass-whole), but judgments like these foster more insecurity and self loathing, and no one wants that.
