Beautiful images of fashion, art, vacation destinations, and food: what’s not to love about Pinterest?
Well, after seeing several pins labeled “thinspiration,” displaying overly thin women and quotes like, “All I want is to be happy, confident, and skinny as hell,” I decided it was time to speak up.
The image in this post is of me, back in my modeling days. This photo was very popular with friends and family on Facebook and with my followers on a modeling website I was a member of at the time.
If Pinterest had been around back then, I definitely would have pinned it for all to see.
Some may look at this image and see a woman that offers “thinspiration,” but the truth is actually much darker.
