Sam Escobar, makeup artist and beauty editor at Good Housekeeping (who identifies as neither male nor female and prefers gender-neutral pronouns), has their height and weight listed in their Twitter bio . In a series of tweets on August 16, Escobar explained why. Escobar, who has struggled with the eating disorder bulimia for 14 years, hopes that being forthright about basic measurements will help turn the focus of beauty blogs and magazines away from its obsession with weight and size.
