Letters to the Editor
I appreciate the concern and the maturity in the letter. It was never mine or Ava’s intention to offend anyone or promote or endorse hurtful, negative things about body image and identity. These aren’t things that align with mine or Ava’s beliefs or experiences. It was never our intention to promote anything bad or toxic.
From what I’ve heard, this article has already been complained about several times, but as someone who this article affects, I felt as though it was important to share my thoughts. The whole Brandy Melville take was just a bad take, but also inherently hurtful. Maybe it wasn’t intentional, but it was. I am considered to be on the edge of midsize and plus size as a size 14, but I have been affected by fatphobia in my life.
Congratulations to Webster Groves High School Statesman Tristen Moore for persevering through numerous disappointments on the basketball court to earn several academic scholarship offers.
Congratulations also to Kirkwood High School Pioneer Amaya Marion for her accomplishments in and out of the classroom to earn a four-year scholarship to Stanford University.
