Body Loving, Had Me A Blast

Via Paul McAleer , today is Love Your Body Day, which the NOW Foundation describes as "a national day of action to speak out against ads and images of women that are offensive, harmful, dangerous and disrespectful." Gosh, where to start? How about, it's an ironic shame that the pop-up ad I got when clicking on their contribution form was for eDiets showing a skinny black-dress-clad woman and the text "Drop a Dress Size - Get a Free Diet Profile!" Yeah, that'll be my first response on their reader survey on body images. Looks like New Hampshire celebrated early, but the Women's Center at Old Dominion has all kinds of stuff today. USC has been celebrating all week. Probably lots more going on but I just got a whole workload dumped on me so I'll have to abandon the Google search...
