No foam here!

One of my very favorite shows is "RuPaul's Drag Race" (new season in January!), which I watch online at logotv.com.  I really think it's got some of the most feminine-positive messages of anything happening in pop culture today.  Curves are good (whether they come from foam, fat or silicone), strength and confidence are essential, and with a little creativity you really can become anything you want to be.

Also loved this tweet from my drag queen crush, and winner of Season 3 of Drag Race, Raja:

I think most women would benefit from hearing a lot more messages that their bodies are beautiful, no matter the size.  Here's hoping that drag queens gaining more of a public eye is just the start of this movement.
