I didn't find any triggers in them but as always, read with sensitivity to yourself, everyone is different :heart:. There are some beautiful pictures of women.

Wow, I really like the second one :)

Although just a warning - I'd avoid the comments section if you're easily triggered, they always get me :/

I thought one of the pictures with the plus and "regular" model was really sad. She looks like she's protecting her, in a way.

I commented on the story about the Ann Summers lingerie comp winner, some guy was like "She's overweight therefore unhealthy, there aren't any underweight models here, they should've only accepted healthy models." If going by looks, there are at least two underweight girls there. And weight isn't always an indicator of health.
People are saying "We should all look like this now" by voting for that picture, they're saying they want variety in their models.

interesting you circle around the 'healthiness' point, Lisa - i was reading some feelings of one of the WeAreFreEDomFighters women, and the conclusions people draw about 'health' based on looking at someone are ... a big problem in a few ways, i think.

and yes, Vega, i loved the photos at the beginning of the second one. And oh, heads up, the first one has a totally stupid headline that made me not want to read it - "yes, and what else is new?" ("yes, and that tells you nothing, because BMI is NOT a diagnosing bull's eye by any stretch, and that undermines your own point.")
