“I don’t even feel like it was a mistake anymore. I don’t really believe in the concept of mistakes. Now I’m very sensitive to any pictures taken of myself at photoshoots and whatever because the internet has this very weird —especially people in politics — this very weird reaction to my body, because I’m not super skinny. I have large breasts. I know! They’re real, I can’t do anything about it and the internet just has this really weird reaction to my body … I’ve seen a therapist about it, if that means anything. There’s like this obsession (with my body). I think people don’t understand why I haven’t lost a bunch of weight right now, because [sarcastic] ‘all women in the media should lose a bunch of weight if they want to go on television to talk about anything.’” 

– Meghan McCain discusses BoobGate (aka that time she tweeted a very boobalicious photo, apparently by accident) and how much negative attention that’s been heaped upon her body as she’s become a conservative pundit. Now, I’ve always thought Meghan McCain was nepotistic and kind of annoying. But in the past few years, I’ve admired the way that she’s taken every incident where a douchebag has tried to body-shame her or slut-shame her and fought back. Unfortunately, I’m not the least bit surprised that bullying from Glenn Beck would send a girl into therapy! [YouTube via Nerve]
