Some might classify us as thin, but we are sick of feeling like we have to be thinner or feeling bad when we gain a little weight. Eat A Cheeseburger is about the social pressures we feel as women to be the thinnest we can be. The title is meant to be satirical and catchy. We aren’t literally telling every woman to eat a cheeseburger. We are simply encouraging women to speak out against our thin-obsessed society, make fun of it and reminding them to EAT! We think this to be a healthier alternative to those who succumb to cumbersome and restrictive eating habits that may or may not reflect in their body.
Despite your current jean size, I’m sure you’ve had those thoughts of self-criticism. We sure have. And we’re sick of it. This blog makes fun of our society’s obsession with thin and speaks out against the social voice which tells us, “Don’t eat that, you’ll get fat!” and “The thinner you are the better.” We want women everywhere to eat freely, walk freely, look in the mirror freely, step on the scale freely, go jean shopping freely, socialize freely, live freely and embrace who they are freely! We invite you to start by eating a cheeseburger (beef, boca, veggie, soy, turkey and any other kind of burger you can think of) or anything for that matter!
