 There are a few things in life that get me heated instantly, and our society’s misogynistic view of what woman should look like is one of them. I hate to think that my daughters are growing up in a society with such distorted views of what a woman’s figure is. We come in different shapes, sizes and colors and that’s beautiful. I don’t want my daughters to think that the plastic they are passing off as beautiful, sexy or otherwise desirable is what they need to be.
      So, having two daughters I find myself in a battle to instill a healthy and confident body image in them. But how do you do that with Heidi Montag walking around like a life-size Barbie? Well, in my attempt to be the mother I want to be I will promise not to say the “F” word. Not the one you are thinking of… I mean fat.  I am not saying that there is anything inherently wrong with letting your kid know that your body is not where it needs to be. It’s quite the contrary, I think it is necessary to educate them in what’s a good example of treating your body as a temple and bad one. That being said, It won’t help our daughters if we are criticizing or belittling ourselves in their presence! It takes some thought before we speak, but expressing that you aren't being good to yourself when you overeat and sit on a couch all day is a better example than exclaiming in your moment of insecurity that you feel fat.
That is why I am on a mission not the say the F word, or any other self abusing negative expressions of an undesirable feature. Because as humans we do age, gain weight and are born imperfect but if we don’t learn to focus on a healthy outlook of our less than perfect bodies than we are contributing to the problem.
