I was shocked to discover I am ‘thinspiration’

Dear Holly,

I was shocked to discover recently that I am apparently thought of as ‘thinspiration’ by anorexic girls everywhere. How can I become a more positive role model? I am particularly interested in reaching out to girls with dry or damaged hair.

Since Miranda Simpson was caught twerking in the playground last week, our head teacher, Miss Nutkins, has banned every girl in the whole school from having unsuitable role models, and has circulated a formal list of sanctioned individuals, from which we are each at liberty to select our own personal idol. The list includes a range of inspirational women including Marie Curie, Boudicca and Joanna Lumley. I hadn’t heard of any of them except Cherie Blair and she’s not at all pretty, so in the end I plumped for some dead nurse lady called Florence Nightingale. Since then I have been mostly focusing on improving my bedside manner and developing a secret addiction to opiates.

Hope that helps!

Holly
