Body Image Story: Stella Boonshoft

Body Image Story: Stella Boonshoft | beauty body image

At high request, here’s a story that fits perfectly in our Beauty and Body Image category that you might find interesting – all the details from People Magazine:

A New York college student who started a blog on self-acceptance in order to help other young women deal with body image taunts has become a viral hero to many for her frank and powerful online discussion about her weight. Stella Boonshoft, who writes The Body Love Blog and who has polycystic ovarian syndrome, put her curves on full view when she posted a bikini photo on her Tumblr site.

My body must be a revolution,” she wrote along with the photo, which she captioned, “Picture might be considered obscene because subject is not thin. And we all know that only skinny people can show their stomachs and celebrate themselves. I am not going to stand for that. This is my body, not yours. MINE.”

“I think people are cruel because they are uncomfortable seeing an image of people who are not thin,” Boonshoft said in an interview on Tuesday’s Today show. “I found that after years of struggling with my body image that really there was no way to justify the bullying as a child and as a teen.”

And her cause became a cyberspace hit with more than 2.4 million views on Facebook. In addition, more than 80,000 people shared her photo from her Tumblr page. But she got even more exposure thanks to Brandon Stanton, who appeared with Boonshoft on Today. He created the Humans of New York project, a collection of street portraits in the city, and he initially took his own photo of Boonshoft fully clothed but later made a decision to use Boonshoft’s own bikini shot, which she says mortified her – at first.

After a while, she decided it was the right choice as she continued to work on her project on sizeism.

“It took a lot of years of soul searching to decide this isn’t right,” she said on Today. “I finally came to a place where I was really happy with the way that I looked. I wanted to leave a message to the bullies who tormented me.”

What do you think about Stella’s message?

$5 MP3 Album Deal: David Bowie ‘Space Oddity’

Posted: 25 Dec 2012 02:00 PM PST

David Bowie

Space Oddity, the debut album by the rock and roll spaceman David Bowie, (pictured here above with its 1972 reissue cover) is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.

On this album, released in 1969 and Bowie's second with his pseudonym last name (he was born David Jones and had recorded a few songs and albums with that name and a back up band called The Lower Third prior to Space Oddity), Bowie takes some of the musical cues left over in the metaphoric bargain bins from 1967's Summer of Love and does his best Donovan meets Syd Barrett style post-post psychedelic musings. The title track of course was an international hit and is still one of the highlights of Bowie's greatest hits albums and in the top five of his all time songs for many fans of his. [...]

Les Miserables Poster

Les Misérables
Directed by Tom Hooper
Written by William Nicholson
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 160 minutes
Release Date: December 25th, 2012

Tom Hooper's new film, Les Misérables, is based on the musical production by Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg, and Herbert Kretzmer, which is of course based upon the 1862 French novel by Victor Hugo.

This musical film adaptation, scripted by William Nicholson (Gladiator), features Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, a Frenchman imprisoned for stealing bread, who breaks parole and must escape the tireless police Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe).

The pursuit consumes both men's lives, and after two decades on the run, Valjean finds himself in the midst of the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris where he must confront Javert for the last time. The film's ensemble is comprised of Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, and the humorous duo of Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen, who play shifty innkeepers. [...]
