  2. victorialeerod asked: Hi! I created a blog for my English 102 course at the University of Arizona. I was wondering if you could refer your followers to either write an ask or comment on a post with their opinions on the images media presents standardizing body image to the blog bodyimageinmedia. This would help me so much in providing my class with insight to the audience I am targeting and spreading the word about the negative effect media has. Thank you so much! (Again the blog is bodyimageinmedia)

    Of course!

    Everyone, please go to her blog here and write in the ask box what you think about how body image is reflected in the media. The blog has also been added to the “Great Body Image Blogs” page!

    I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.

    (Hayley’s Note: I’m just going to repeat that My Mad Fat Diary is a very important show. It airs in the UK and just finished its second series. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it now! It’s amazing.)

  10. Acceptance

    I accept my 34 A sized boobs, 
    and my thighs that jiggle and rub together 
    as I walk.

    I accept my dry skin 
    that my perfumed Victoria’s Secret body lotion 
    can’t smooth out.

    I accept my thin eye brows, 
    the raw skin around my nails 
    that I anxiously pick at, 
    the dark hair on my body that keeps coming back.

    I embrace the freedom of no clothes.

    I’m not worried about 
    what you’re thinking when 
    your hand glides over the bump that is my stomach.

    I’m not nervous about
    leaving the security of the warm comforter
    and exposing my pale body.

    I’m not scared to let you see
    what’s underneath.

    I’m not afraid. I’m comfortable.

    (This is a poem I wrote recently. I’ve come to accept a lot of things about myself over the past year and I can say that I actually admire some things about myself. I can look in the mirror and like what I see most of the time. I’m comfortable with who I am.)
