Body image is a strange thing. Just been chatting to simonb in real life, and then read his latest journal entry. It always amazes me how many of the gorgeous people I know have such a low opinion of their own bodies (Um, those who don't have body-image issues, this doesn't mean that I don't think you're attractive! -- just so's you know).

I've answered Simes's poll, but what I really wanted to do was say "Simes, you're gorgeous. Stop being such a muppet." On the other hand, I don't think I have much right to tell him he's being daft, when (as I just told him) I have the same problem.
