indigo jones on huffpost live

October 20, 2012

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to appear on Huffpost Live.  A panel of people debated the impact that Barney’s and Disney’s re-proportioning of their beloved characters has on the body image of young girls. This subject was also the featured in yesterday’s post on indigo jones.

The conversation was lively, with everyone on the panel other than myself taking the stance that anything we do that sends the message that you are not perfect just the way you are, is wrong. When I came home last night and read the 285 comments on the piece, I was surprised to see that many viewers agreed with me; it’s all in good fun. My own readers also thought that we were losing our sense of humor over this.

Check out the segment on Huffpost Live and tell me what you think: Do these overly exaggerated fashion figures send a negative body image message?

Leave a comment, and join the conversation!
