With the media's constant bombardment of stick-thin figures and articles declaiming the latest not anorexic or bulimic 'fat' celebrity, it's very nice to have a website written by the amazing humorist, feminist and cartoonist Kaz Cooke open for us!
Although the information mostly comes in bite-sized pieces, this is a pretty sweet website to visit for all women concerned with their bodies.
So visit, and tell us what you think! I personally loved her section on Shapes and Sizes, especially her take on the effects of puberty.
Everyone gets terribly embarrassed and wants to hide their bits. Nobody feels much like a beautiful butterfly. Sometimes it feels more like being a squished caterpillar.
In many other cultures these rites of passage are celebrated with ceremony, which would seem a more healthy way of going about it. This is the sort of time any reasonable society would send its children on a long holiday, complete with instructions on how to be an adult and why you’re still gorgeous. Instead, they give you exams. Weird.
That's more of what we need. People telling us we're completely gorgeous as we are, naturally. ;D

Hey Erica. I had a look at recommended site with low expectations however I found it to be light-hearted and witty. eg. "Exercise reduces stress and tiredness. Also, you can stop when it hurts, which is more than you can say for life in general." Thanks for the recommendation!
And on a side note: since we're aiming for this site to be inclusive and loving towards the female body and women in general, why are their banner ads at the top pushing the 'instant ab-cure' or the 'no-diet weight loss regime'? This is bull!! Can we get rid of them please?
