Hi guys,
I haven't written in for a long time, but this just caught my eye:
[http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1859937,00.html]. I think that it misrepresents Scarleteen, so I just wanted to make sure that you knew about it.

You do great work,
Juniata

We did see it, and given how many girls come here expressing those things, I didn't feel the characterization was inaccurate. My feeling was that it was important to the writer to point out that this stuff is not just impacting older women, but also younger women.

Regardless, there's nothing we can ever really do about how press pieces present us or what happens here, save when it's downright slanderous.

But clearly you had concerns about it. Did you want to talk about them?

Just for the record, I took a peek, and the source of the quote they used is here: http://www.scarleteen.com/cgi-bin/forum/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=27;t=011510
