Originally embedded in Rose M’s post, this video about Dr. Robyn Silverman’s book Good Girls Don’t Get Fat: How Weight Obsession is Messing Up Our Girls & How We Can Help Them Thrive Despite It should not be missed.

    No offence shinji, but it’s a reference to this site.
    Not 4chan, if you had read any prior articles then you would know that Seth is a misogynistic jerk who keeps starting flame wars in them.

    You know that good old saying?

    Know what’s happening before you insult someone?

    @Jake
    i meant no offense you dont need to get anrgy. and yes, it is because i’ve been reading the threads that i know exactly when and where you make the references i’m referring to, lol. i actually never heard of that saying, but it doesnt apply here. anyway you can continue gung-ho if you want with the imageboard slang, thats your call.

    moral of the story: no need to get defensive over criticisms that weren’t even meant to be insulting.

    Sorry to rain on your parade, first part of the video, but I never sang into my hairbrush because I already hated my body at the age of 5, which is the earliest I have any memory of.
