Yes I saw this the other day and just love it! She really is a beautiful girl!

I really hope that body acceptance really takes off soon.

This was a TED talk by one of my favorite bloggers (Barefootfoodie) and I cried when I listened to this talk.

Why why why would she have a NSFW rating ??!!  however, a cover of Cosmo is probably acceptable ??   one big ATTA GIRL  for her !!!!!!!!!!!

Saw it on HONY the other day and LOVE it.  Good for her! 

@redheadem:  I completely agree – celebrity pics with even less on  never get called NSFW!

NSFW my ass! My mundane Google searches come up with worse. Good for her! She is beautiful.

 

I am so behind the body acceptance movement. We as a society need to start realizing that thicker doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy nor does thin mean good health. Healthy comes in many sizes.

I think she’s really pretty… I don’t see why anyone would put her down. She’s way more brave than I am though… 

I looked her up and read some terrible comments from people calling her fat. She’s not even fat.

Haha well I wouldn’t pull it up at work regardless of the body size but I’m also a teacher!

I saw this on Facebook a few days ago and I think it’s great. That girl is fabulous!

ETA: the first thing that struck me when I opened it is how beautiful she is.

@peterpotamus:  I think thats the point of this post. Why is it that picture of a super thin girl in a sports bra and running shorts isn’t looked upon NSFW (say you were reading a running blog while on break or w/e), but suddenly a larger girl in almost the same exact outfit would be seen as NSFW.

ok now i kinda get what you guys are saying.  i didn’t read that a different website designated the picture nsfw.

@redheadem:  well, what’s wrong?  it’s still nsfw.  i find websites with pictures designated nsfw with skinny people… and if it’s not then they should designate it nsfw.

@Hippos:  that is not a girl in running gear, that is panties and a bra.  

girls with little article of clothing should be nsfw, doesn’t matter whether they’re fat or not.  some people don’t feel the need to announce if it’s nsfw or whatever.  anyway, i think i’m commenting on semantics.  

it’s a great pic and topic, but it’s still nsfw.  i wouldn’t want to open a website with a girl wearing a bra and underwear at work.
