Smashing BMI standards  

Thanks to someone in the Feministing community, I came across this project that seeks to illustrate the fact that "BMI calculators" are a big ol' load of crap. They completely misrepresent a person's body, and Kate Harding's "The Illustrated BMI Categories Project" shows that quite clearly. According to these "calculators," I'm obese.

Right. How have BMI calculators screwed you over?

What next?

    Yay I was with you when that picture was taken! And I happen to think it's beautiful :) despite your glaringly obvious obesity!
