The Very True Story About that One Time I Caused My Puppy an Eating Disorder

Reading Time: 5 minutesThe most subversive act of feminine revolution you can do is learn to love your body the way she is right now. Multibillion-dollar industries are built so predators can profit off of our self-loathing. There are better things we could be spending our money and our energy on that body shame and self-loathing.
