Default Re: The world as it should be

I wish all girls struggling with body image would print out these graphics and post them on their lockers, or in their rooms, anywhere where they could see them constantly, in order to counter the brainwashing that they otherwise get from today's media.

Though I feel good about my body most of the time, it's been hard to hear some of the size-negative and self-hating things women say about being full-figured. I added some of these ads to my work computer's "My Pictures" folder, along with photos of beautiful plus-size models so that I can view them as a screensaver slideshow. My hope is that everyone else will see these images too, and think about whose rules they're following when they think they have to starve themselves to be beautiful.
