So here are two articles on the new show on Lifetime, “How to Look Good Naked”. I’m not going to comment on the show as I’ve not seen it. I likely won’t watch it, especially if what’s written about the show are true. Suffice it to say, yes media have given women a false ideal of perfection. Yes, women (and men) as a result suffer from body dysmorphia. Yes, not hating yourself is a step in the right direction. But no, some people are overweight and they need to lose some. They don’t have to be stick thin, but they have to get healthy. Okay, I’ve already commented more than I wanted to. The links for you to read and ponder:
