Spanx is Bad for Your Health

The Huffington Post recently published an article about the dangers of shapewear. Dr. Kuemmerle and Dr. Erickson both say that the too tight fabric can be responsible for many medical issues you may not even realize you have. By wearing shapewear you are compressing your colon, intestines, and stomach. This can lead to the erosion of your esophagus and a disruption to the flow of digestion which can lead to bloating and abdominal discomfort. You are also restricting the movement of your diaphragm – without the sufficient amount of room…

The Most Beautiful Lady Parts Ever

I’m a huge supporter of lady parts and I’m pretty vocal about it. Whether it’s from showing (sometimes unexpecting) friends my I’ll Show You Mine book (yup – more on this later) to researching ways to fight female genital mutilation, I consider myself a lover and defender of them all.

By using the human form as his canvas he paints on his participants trying to bring out their personalities while embracing the body shape. McLean said that the project has helped him to overcome self esteem issues and the dislike he had for his body. I love the idea behind the Human Canvas…

Missouri Mom Outraged After School Tells Daughter to Get Breast Reduction to Stop Harassment

Talk about handling a situation the wrong way: When Tammie Jackson called her daughter’s middle school with a complaint that she was being sexually harassed, the school’s response was: Have your daughter get a breast reduction. How reasonable! Seriously, someone should get fired for that kind of response to a very serious problem. Not only does it perpetuate victim-blaming but does NOTHING to get to the root of the problem: which is teaching kids NOT to bully and to treat other people with RESPECT. And of course, stop treating women…
