Internet insult-slinging can get vicious. But Meghan Tonjes, creator of Project Lifesize doesn’t suffer trolls lying down. Check out her awesome video response to the people who called her “fat” here.

I previously wrote about pro-ana/thinspiration website Skinny Gossip here. They’ve been getting a lot of heat in the media lately (and public outcry against them). In response, they took down their “starving tips.” Keep the pressure on! Check out this facebook group that mobilized in response. Skinny Gossip apparently has ads now, including from Ideeli.com. Let Ideeli know they shouldn’t be spending their advertising dollars on such a harmful, unhealthy site by signing this petition here. Sign this petition speaking out against Skinny Gossip’s destructive message here as well.
