I'm very excited to announce that I'm partnering with the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) and Proud2BMe with a Q&A advice column called "Dear KJ," for teens (and the adults who care about them) who have questions about body image, beauty politics, media literacy, eating disorder recovery, self-care, etc..
I've just finished my first month of answering weekly questions, which I've re-posted below in separate blog entries. (I'll be posting weekly from this point forward.) Sometimes writing about these issues from an academic perspective can feel a bit distant from the "real" world, so it feels great to be interacting with teens (and the adults who care about them!) more directly through this format.
Please submit any questions you'd like me to answer in the comments below!
