Why are you allowed to love your curves but it’s wrong for me to love my bones? Why does that make you strong but it makes me vain? If you can feel beautiful for being big, I can feel beautiful for being small! Everyone should be allowed to feel good about themselves!
Yes, but you have to realise you cop way less hassle being skinny than you do if you’re fat. Plus, the fact that your photo is prime pro-ana thinspiration bullshit was a pretty shitty idea for a photo. Your figure is so close to the ideal that you have to understand the inherent privileges in being thin and that in the big scheme of body acceptance, us skinny bitches aren’t contributing much by going “but but all bodies are beautiful”. Yeah well yours is one many women are killing themselves right now to achieve, you don’t have much to be complaining about in this respect.
Oh, I’m sorry…..do you know me personally? Do you know my entire life? You’ve been there the whole time? No, I don’t have to realize that because that is not my personal experience or the experience of my other friends who are thin. I have been harassed about my weight far more than any of my bigger friends and they agree. I’m sure there are women out there that get more shit for being overweight than I do for being underweight, but I don’t know any. Same as I’m sure there are other thin women who get more shit than I do. I get constant inbox messages from girls admitting they are bigger ladies and pouring their hearts about having to watch their thin friends nonstop get made fun of for their weight. And no, my figure is not “so close” to the ideal. At 5’5, 85 pounds and 30 years old….no. It’s not. I’m not sure what TV you’ve been watching or what magazines you’ve been reading but the media is no more a fan of my body type than they are of someone overweight. All I see in the media is curves and women far larger than myself, while other women see those women as being thin. It’s all about perspective. The same way I’m sure thin women in say, California….New York, places more fashion friendly probably receive less shit. I’m in the South. Where women are expected to be corn-fed and thick! Again….it’s all about perspective! Saying that it was a shitty idea to post a picture of myself, being that I’m thin and trying to remind everyone that we all look different and that’s ok, is just as wrong as all the fat shamers out there that throw a fit every time they see the body positivity ads with overweight women. By your own logic, bigger women shouldn’t be posting body positivity propaganda either because there are thin girls out there killing themselves because they will never be “a real woman”. For some of us, curves will never be a reality no matter how hard we try and believe it or not, that has the ability to affect someone’s self esteem the same way it does when a big girl so desperately wants to be small. But I suppose that’s ok right? Also by that logic, no thin woman should ever post pictures of herself, at all, anywhere because it could be misconstrued as pro-ana and thinspiration. So thank you for being so ignorant and enforcing the double standard and the way of thinking that keeps the body acceptance movement from actually being something positive. Maybe YOU get less shit, but I do not. Do not presume you know how it is to be someone else!
