Remember this picture drawn by ~vonnie-seiyuki-chan? It was the picture that depicted 10 different body types of women that was really inspiring to a lot of people, and yes, caused a bit of a controversy because of some comments she made on her blog about “obese” and “bone thin” people which she apologized for sincerely after thinking about some of the feedback she got.
I noticed the other day looking back at the picture, that she’s since added three more body types! :) I was already a big fan of the original picture and in my opinion, the additions make an already awesome thing even awesomer!
And so I wanted to share it because I know there are many people who will be so happy to see their body types included in this new version. :)
Also, I wanted to say how honestly impressed I am with the way she’s handled what happened. I mean, I know it really hurt her and she expressed a lot of that hurt, but I do think the self-flagellation was honest and not an attempt to manipulate and I think this new picture proves it. :) She took the criticism, thought about it, and didn’t react with gut reaction hostility. The fact that she changed her mind is something that obviously pleases me, because it happens to fit my point of view, but it doesn’t necessarily mean EVERY SINGLE TIME you have to change your mind, just as long as you listen and consider the merits of the criticism. I think that’s really admirable.
Plus, having listened, she added more types! :D
