I think everyone who writes about body image has a blind spot or a subject that makes them feel a bit hypocritical. After all, most of us haven’t gotten the whole “Love your body exactly as it is 100 percent of the time no matter what” thing down yet, and although we might have a great understanding of all the concepts, and can easily explain them to others, we haven’t quite internalized them for ourselves.

Dear Fantasy Girlfriend Carrie Underwood,
I want to preface this letter by letting you know that I am not a lesbian, nor do I plan on experimenting with women any time soon. With that said, I would certainly not kick you out of bed.

While I was watching/sleeping through the CMA Awards last night, I was literally mesmerized by your legs. They’re perfectly toned, bronzed and otherworldly.

Whose vintage style is on point? Who is most likely to be mistaken for a Vegas lounge singer? Who seems to be trying really hard to impress your mom? Click through to find out!
Don’t get me wrong. I adore Carrie Underwood. She is one of my favorite singers/performers and I’m secretly kind of excited she’s taking on the role of Maria Von Trapp for a TV movie version of “The Sound of Music” even though most people seem to think this is NBC’s second worst idea ever after greenlighting “Joey.” That being said, the poster for the television spectacle was released yesterday, and there’s something about it that’s, well, a little off. Is it the strangely vacant look in her usually lively eyes? The gaping smile? My confusion about this poster is best expressed in GIF form. Forgive me, Carrie. I just couldn’t resist.
