It amazes us that the shape of women’s bodies is still considered a topic of discussion.
Women should be able to celebrate their bodies regardless of their size, and those people who try to shame them back into the dark should take a look at the family members, friends, and work colleagues that they also seek to repress.
Living healthily is a completely different subject, and not one that should be confused with women celebrating the body shape they are, rather than the body images thrust upon them by the media.
