she's been thin, she's been fat. hear what this anorexic has to say about body p


when we try and think of body shaming, we usually picture an overweight person being called names or facing flak over being “lazy”. lately, we have witnessed a motion against this bullying as people with “undesirable” body-types have displayed love towards the person in the mirror. yet, we tend to ignore how body shaming continues for people with skinny bodies. a self-proclaimed ed (eating disorder) warrior, megan jayne crabbe, has set out to balance out the prevailing notions pertaining to a “normal” body. an anorexia survivor herself, megan challenges the common misconceptions- being thin isn’t always good and being fat is okay too.megan was diagnosed as an anorexic when she was 14. “you see, within 5 years of being on the planet, it was already ingrained in my mind that fat was the wors

diversity progress in fashion is a step forward but there's no time to be compla


niklas halle'n via getty images diversity in fashion, on the catwalk or in advertising, has been an issue for a while. members of the body positivity movement have worked hard to raise much needed awareness of the lack of models in the industry who reflect society as it is today with all its different shapes, sizes, skin tones, ages, genders, ethnicities and disabilities. the campaign to see more real people has certainly picked up momentum and this year's london fashion week seems to have finally got the message. or so it seems. it's no secret that we urgently need greater diversity in the fashion industry with our nation being on the brink of a body image crisis. only 40% of people like the way they look and almost a third of young people in school don't want to take part in a...

i also think this is not a boy thing and that it is nothing to worry about. printing as this age is work. i also do not like signing my name and on some days, it just feels like they want you to do a lot of it. if this is a particularly busy day of signing his name, i understand -- it isn't fun. it's work. in my case, it's arthritis. in his case i am betting, it's just not fun. i'd be careful about making a big deal of anything you are worrying about. in our home when k e home from school, we'd have a drink at the kitchen table. i'd ask about her day and look at her work, if she brought any home. i'd ask what her day was like. i'd tell her about my day, too. it gave her an opportunity to solve her own problems (if she thought she had any), but with my gentle suggestions. i wonder if he thi

bedroom talk: the weight of our words


all that we seem to hear about is the negative impact of the media upon women and s' body image. yes, that vague conceptual monster, "the media" is making us insecure, is making us feel fat, and is putting forwards unrealistic ideals towards which women are supposed to aspire. these sentiments are undoubtedly true, but they also seem to neglect the far-reaching echoes of body perfectionism which are glossed onto the words of men and boys everywhere, clinging like a sticky syrup which, once stuck, cannot too easily be s ed off. at a macro level, the media is painstakingly pushing an obsession with women's bodies. whilst the mainstream media may continue to value thin, perfected female bodies, strong backlash to these ideals has become an equally forceful and unavoidable part of the rhetoric
