This is an excellent article and really looks at the issue from a perspective I haven’t frequently seen.

The media that surround us are very good at sending the message that our bodies do equate to our self-worth. For women in particular, there’s a clear value judgement: women who are attractive are more valuable than those who aren’t. It’s untrue and sickening.

I appreciate your focus on the jobs our bodies perform for us. Their functionality.

I just hope that on a societal level we can start to smarten up about the messages we put out there in regards to people’s bodies and their value.
