Underwear Brand SLAYS Fat-Shaming Page 'Project Harpoon'
We recently reported on the disgusting Facebook page called Project Harpoon, which digitally slenderizes plus sized celebrities and models. Now feminist underwear brand Neon Moon is taking aim at the 'project' with this amazing response after an image of one of their models was altered. "By Project Harpoon (what a disgusting, trash name), asking Facebook users to compare and contrast these two images they are reinforcing that women are objects to be judged, purely on their looks. They are reinforcing the notion that women's bodies are pieces of meat to be carved up for sexual consumption and entertainment." Neon Moon writes on their blog. Project Harpoon has taken images of plus sized actresses Melissa McCarthy and Rebel Wilson and Photoshopped them down to proportions that the page deems 'beautiful'. "What message does this give to them? Lose weight and more men will find you attractive? Lose weight and you will get social approval and Facebook likes?" asks Neon Moon. The page has even taken pictures of non-celebrity and non-model curvy women off of social media sites without their authorization and digitally morphed their figures. "There is no such thing as 'perfection' or the 'right way to look'. You are good enough. Neon Moon hopes to be at the forefront of the fight back and will be practicing aggressive self love for as long as there is breath in our bodies." Neon Moon states at the end of their post. This is the best way to take down body-shamers, with undeniably impenetrable confidence! We want to hear from you! What is your take on Project Harpoon and Neon Moon's reaction?
