    The BuzzFeed Body Image Survey 2014

    Think about the way you view your own body, and see how others feel about theirs.

    Hello there. Today we're going to do a poll about BODY IMAGE.

    Here's a nice explainer from Brown University about the different aspects that make up a person's "body image":

    – How we perceive our bodies visually
    – How we feel about our physical appearance; how we think and talk to ourselves about our bodies
    – Our sense of how other people view our bodies
    – Our sense of our bodies in physical space (kinesthetic perception)
    – Our level of connectedness to our bodies

    According to a survey of college-aged students cited by Brown, 74% of women and 46% of a "normal" (read: average) weight "stated that they thought about their weight or appearance 'all the time' or 'frequently'".

    OK, it's time for a long list of body parts.

    The question for all is: How do you feel about this aspect of your appearance?

    A BRIEF PAUSE TO SAY: EVERYONE IS FUCKING BEAUTIFUL.

    Phew. OK. How's everyone feeling?
