I can’t remember a week in recent history where there’s been so much chatter about what others are (and aren’t), can (and can’t) do with their bodies.
Angelina reconstructed herself, in a bravely proactive response to faulty BRCA genes. (Just goes to show that the tabs, who thought she was pregnant and obsessively planning her wedding, have no clue what’s actually happening in celebrities’ lives.)
Abercrombie reminded us that they have no room for fat people. So one guy made a video, and we all got to have a conversation about what it means to clothe homeless people in their castoffs, and how we can better encourage companies into embracing all sizes of humanity. Memo to us all: shame’s probably not the answer.
Kim Kardashian heels cut off her circulation, and the internet crowed. Which is ridiculous, because the only things truly offended by her footwear were her poor feet.
And next week, we’re publishing our first real wedding, starring a Muslim couple. If you’ve encountered more Muslim real weddings published online, please leave a comment in the links. We’d love to see them.
To diversity, acceptance, choosing your own damn shoes, and being proud to see your own (big, wrinkled, lovely) face in the mirror.
