Thank you, Alexa Chung

Very glad to see this on Jezebel this morning. It’s so important that women, especially those who are actually working in a beauty/fashion driven industry take a stand against weight bullying (on both sides of the scale) and against women judging women in general.

Earlier in the year, Alexa Chung went as far as shutting down her Instagram due to aggressive comments about her weight and style. Kudos. We are so much more than the size of our bodies.

I don’t have much else to say, as these quotes sum it up pretty well:

I think it’s about time people stopped judging women on their appearance and more on their intellect. Like you can appreciate my style without having to appreciate my weight. It’s not actually mutually exclusive. I just get frustrated because just because I exist in this shape doesn’t mean that I’m like advocating it.

I don’t sit around and judge other people and flick through magazines and be like ‘fuckin’ hell she’s gained ten.’ Like who cares? Why don’t you start being like ‘wow, I really like that women’s show.’
