Are we still here? Women starving themselves to be pretty…isn’t that an oxymoron, juxtaposition or something? Where are my English majors? Anyway, I digress.
Model Kate Upton recently defended herself against attacks to her healthy body. She is being called a piggie among other things. I thought by now we would be back to a more healthy and representative ideal of beauty, but alas, we are not. We catch glimmers of it when there is appreciation for a JLo butt or a Beyonce face, but I can remember being 120 lbs at 17 and feeling like a cow. Soooo glad I grew up and gained confidence.
Can we please show our girls better.
