Can I get a holla for the beautiful picture on today’s Never Say Diet post? When you’re limited to stock photography collections (as we are in daily blog land, since there isn’t enough lead time or money to go out and shoot our own stuff) the body positive pickings can be pretty slim — which often translates to nothing but skinny white girls, as you guys have noted in your comments. But uber-talented iVillage folks have been on the case and here we are. Hooray for a little diversity!
Now you know I don’t mean this in that unhelpful “finally, a REAL woman!” way. Because skinny white girls are real women too. The goal is to represent everybody (and every body), not just flip size discrimination on its head. Which is a concept the purveyors of plus size yoga seem to be having trouble grasping, so you should go check out today’s post about that.
