i would like to point out that while i truly appreciate sophia bush blogging about the shirt as a trigger issue for people recovering from eating disorders…this shirt came out in 2010. the blog post originally was posted in 2013…which makes its recent resurgence interesting. awesome, but interesting.
the shirt itself manages to not only shame fat women but shame thin women as well. kudos, urban outfitters for shaming 51% of the population with two words.
urban outfitters is literally the worst. here is a comprehensive list on clothing they’ve sold that is offensive.
their president, richard hayne, supported rick santorum. i mean, who gave money to santorum’s presidential bid? there’s two women on their entire board…one of which is hayne’s wife. all this to say, stop shopping there. stop giving them your money. also, anthropologie is also owned by hayne.
guys, i watched fed up today. you can rent it for four bucks on amazon. now, i knew going into the movie that it would cover a lot of things i agree with. however, the main narrative was essentially how we are killing a generation of children. the government should be ashamed of themselves. in 1980 there were 0 cases of type two diabetes in adolescents…now there’s just shy of 58,000. sugar is poison. we’ve made an entire generation ill for profit margins and that’s unconscionable. i am really happy that i watched this on the first day of a 30 day paleo challenge. i decided after going to the doctor last week that i was going to do it. i managed to convince a few of my friends to join me. i was so good for so long and then easily succumbed to the poison. because sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine. recommitting myself to eating in a sustainable, healthy way.
i stand. i walk. i took an elevator without pain.
