The fasting body is a body made of telephone wires; messages spark and are extinguished. The lusting body is something totally different, overwhelmed by the physical realness of signals, their pulpy, fleshy undeniability. Thinspo girls are never #sexy. Most of the time they are #lovely, a word that elides those voluptuous esses and exes in favor of a flickering, liquid ell.
