I’ve never heard of her, but She is lovely.
I think I have seen this girl on facehunter…
she’s so cool 🙂
She seems lovely, I do love the swedes 🙂 I found your conversation interesting, and it made me think (which is of course Ida’s intention – I don’t write this because I disagree with you, but because I think the statements she makes with her tshirts are designed to open up a dialogue, internal or otherwise). So I’d just like to add that I think the reason people feel that they have the right to vocalise an opinion about girls who they perceive as anorexic is because being thin continues to be perpetuated as an ideal. As you said yourself, these girls are ‘thin and beautiful’, two values which seem to go hand in hand, whereas people who are overweight are more often typified as ‘fat and ugly’. Both overweight and underweight people are at risk – however, overweight people are not aspirational figures (in fact, I have never seen one overweight person on any streetstyle blog), whereas girls such as Ida (who I personally feel looks like a picture of health and I am sure does not suffer from anorexia) have the kind of body type that young girls might pin up on their walls and starve themselves to emulate. Because of that, I think some commenters feel the need to reinforce that not everybody needs to look like that, that extreme thinness does not come naturally to everyone and is therefore not always healthy.
That said, I do think that girls of all shape and size should be respected, and their bodies should absolutely never be the topic of public discussion and conjecture. It’s not only potentially hurtful, but it’s just plain bad manners!
