A Request To Celebs: Shut Up About Your Bodies, Already

A few days ago, Miley Cyrus tweeted: “i jiggled my thighs and they shook on their own for 3 mississipis [sic] no more late night lucky charms.” Not only can’t the 16-year-old star spell, but she’s insecure about her body.

Kate Winslet Is Intent On Controlling Her Body Image

Kate Winslet is suing the Daily Mail over comments the paper printed about her exercise regime. This isn’t the first time she’s sued a publication about statements regarding her body image, and we bet it won’t be the last.

Do Skinny Women Really Have More Sex?

Listen, I don’t know where they get this “research” or who they’re asking, but according to a new study, women who are a size four have sex more often than size eight women. Now, I think if they continued to do the math they’d find size 16’s like me do it even more than both…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Men Have Body Image Issues Too

We all have insecurities don’t we? When I was a teenager, I was hit with a triple dose of the fuglies, getting glasses, braces, and a raging case of acne within a two month period. I don’t think the insecurity that arose during that time has ever gone away completely, though now I worry more…
