Go Ahead and Love Your Body -- if You're 'Feminine' Enough, That Is

Earlier this week, a Sun editor posted a call for "real women" willing to rate their own naked bodies and be judged by a panel of men for a feel-good piece on "how we're overly negative on ourselves" but "needn't be."

Here's Why 'Real Beauty' Advertising Campaigns Are Garbage

British tabloid The Sun wants women to realize how beautiful they truly are by posing for the paper in a thong so they can rate their own naked bodies — and be judged by a panel of men, natch — for a piece on how we ladies are "overly negative on ourselves" but "needn't be."
