    What's With All the Animosity?!

    I'm skinny - always have been. My mother is skinny, my father is skinny, and my brother is skinny. I'm pretty comfortable with my body and even though I'm significantly "underweight" by the standards of that poster in the doctor's office (5'8", 127 lbs.), I eat...

    I never had body issues.

    I was always short and skinny. You can see my hip bones and collar bones and honestly, I never felt insecure about it. Until this whole "Meat is for men. Bones are for dogs." **** started and now I'm really insecure. People always tell me that this whole thing was created by...

    Although usually people just assume I have

    anorexia. Because surely you must be anorexic when you are skinny, sigh. Not that I care, I'm healthy and happy with my body.

    It Gets Old

    Having/Reading/Hearing comments like "you're too skinny", "you need to eat", is as hurtful as "you're fat,just eat a salad". It's not fair that its rude when you call someone fat but perfectly ok when you call someone too skinny. Some people even act like they're giving you a...
