• I love this! I read somewhere (and it kills me that I cannot remember the book/article this was a quote from) that the cultural obsession with female thinness has nothing to do with health and everything to do with obedience. It was such an “aha moment” for me! Thanks for this article.

    Health? Hah. At my thinnest(as in I was a size 0-4 depending on brand of jeans), I was living on bisquick because that was all we had to eat due to no job and no money. I slept a lot and had no energy. So yeah…fuck that noise.

    Not to mention I had a lot of friends assumed healthy because of their thinness by doctors, and a lot of them assumed that weight was the reason they were not. Women just can’t win when it comes to the medical industry.
