    Originally posted on my blog . An open letter to those who think sexism is dead and the darn feminists need to stop being so angry: I haven’t been blogging much lately, so when I noticed that I was getting a lot of page views, and a few really angry comments, I was curious.

    ThumbnailOriginally posted on my blog .

    OP here! Thanks, you’re right–they might be UK averages, I’m really not sure. Since I’m smaller than a size 4 (in Canada), I definitely found the image on the left to be much smaller than what I imagine a size 4-8 to be. However, the points about body shape versus body size are totally valid–we [...]

    ThumbnailOriginally posted on jocelynthemaster.blogspot.com. So here’s the thing. This picture that’s been circulating around Facebook… …is BULLSHIT. I know that not everyone who has posted this has been all “OMG THIS IS SO EFFING TRUE LOVE YOUR BODY <33333333″ and that many people have used it as a jumping-off point for more critical discussion about fat shaming [...]
