Body Markings

Today I read a powerful article and watched an even more powerful video. They're basically just about women's bodies, specifically post-baby bodies and how we feel and talk about it as individuals and as a society.

Do read and watch them. Even you men (all 3 of you that stumble across my blog lol). I think we as a society forget what women's bodies actually look like. This is what we look like! And we're beautiful.

I haven't had time to watch this, but maybe I'm avoiding it because I don't want to believe this is what I'm supposed to look like. Sad aye?

Totally get it though. I think that the media/Hollywood wouldn't be able to sell us the celebrity-like post-birth body myth if we didn't want to believe it ourselves. I still want to, definitely lol
But this video made me strangely calm, less fretful. Maybe cos there was one less impossible standard to live up to?
