Well said Truffle. It's a shame to miss out on anything in life because we don't deem ourselves beautiful enough to participate. Even sadder though is that we teach this body shame to our children. I know that with boys it's not the same level of insecurity but even so, I don't want him to learn that women should be ashamed of their bodies because they don't live up to beauty ideals. The models themselves don't live up to the airbrushed versions of themselves on the cover of magazines. I met Kate Moss once. Her skin was atrocious.
