"I, like most of the women I know, grew up inundated with messages that women should be less. Smaller, thinner, lighter, softer, quieter, daintier. These are qualities that make us 'feminine' and 'desirable.' The result is an endless pursuit of 'less than.'"

"I'm tired of it. I am not less. I have a body that takes up space. I have opinions that take up space. I have a healthy sense of self worth and that takes up space too."

If you read Rogers' blog (gokaleo), nothing in here will be terribly new. It's nice to have a linear version of the information, though, and I'm happy to support her project. Go forth and eat adequate amounts of real food.

Amber is the real deal. With all the crazy stuff out there, she says the truth. You can't starve yourself and expect to be healthy.
