Boobs…the you that is not you.

They Came with My Body – RH Reality Check (and Alternet)

As the author notes, this isn’t an attempt to say "boo hoo, I have big boobs." But, I am always thrilled to see my shared experience in print. I recently discovered that I am a 30G (damn you Oprah, you were right I was wearing the wrong size) thanks to the amazing UK chain Bravissimo. And even at 29, and much happier with my body than ever, I was sick to my stomach.

Perhaps, it is because the shared high school experience sounds so familiar, or maybe the fact that I will never be able to wear a button up shirt "modestly." And it pains me that young women have to experience this every day. I hope that all of the teachers mentioned in the article have since been fired.

Thanks, but no thanks, BoingBoing

I know I should stop being dismayed at boingboing’s consistent celebration of misogynist gadgets, but really ? (I’m not including the picture on principle).

The title of the image is "unusual mp3 player." No its not unusual, its misogynist, and boingboing’s lack of commentary is a more than an implicit rave review.

World’s Largest “Pro-Anorexia” Site

This site claims to be helping anorexic people by allowing them interaction with other anorexics or bulimics. The posts are shocking. It is clear that the site is trying to create a supportive environment yet the participants are supporting each others weight loss goals. Those who express a desire to stop what they are doing because they are feeling the harsh affects of their illness don’t seem very supported but that is just my opinion.
Here is how the site describes the community it is trying to create:

ProAnorexia [pro'-an-uh-rek'-see-uh] -n. An environment where those who suffer the mental disorders associated with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia and Ed-Nos can feel free to discuss their disorders with others who know ...

Call for Role Models

I am a 17 year old girl in desperate need of role models. I still feel like a kid and I don’t want to grow up trying to act like the girls on Gossip Girl or The Hills. I want to know who I can look up to. Jessica has been a role model ever since I read her first book (I had to buy it after seeing her on Colbert) but I want more books like that. I want to admire the people and the work of the media instead of trying to learn from its mistakes. I want to know anyone or anything that inspired the feminist in you.
Thank You!
