“I remember when I was doing Rent and I was too thin, and I was doing that on purpose because I’m dying, I’m a HIV+ drug addict. I remember having to eat raw food and doing all this work to make sure I could stay thin… And I remember everyone asking me when I was doing press for the movie, “what did you do to get so thin? You looked great!” and I’m like, “I looked emaciated.”

It’s a form of violence in the way that we look at women and how we expect them to look and be, for… what’s sake? Not health, not survival, not enjoyment of life, but just so that you can look ‘pretty’.

I’m constantly telling girls all the time, “everything’s airbrushed, everything’s retouched, to the point of just that it’s never even asked, and none of us look like that.”

Rosario Dawson

In addition let’s not hate on ANY ONE’S body. A lot of people have issues with their body. As a recovering anorexic; I have a hugely complicated relationship with food. It annoys me when people say I don’t understand anything because I’m thin. I have to fight everyday with myself saying its ok to eat. Be kind to people, everyone is fighting a battle you can’t see.
