Confession: I am a very average sized woman. I wear a size 10. I feel underrepresented in the body positivity movement. Skinny women obviously have nothing to worry about. At least before skin color, sexual preference, and all of those things come in to play. Then plus sized women have created an amazing community for themselves. Then there are the fetishized “thick” women who are obviously sexy. And then there is me. I feel less fabulous than all other body types. I’m not big and fabulous, not acceptable to mainstream ideas of beauty and not sexy like the thick girls. I have the thighs like a thick girl, with a pudgy belly but I can shop in “regular” stores. But I never see my self represented in said store. Where do I fit? And I feel guilty for complaining because I would never experience the ridicule that plus women do. I look to that community for inspiration yet I’m not ACTUALLY a part of it. Is that like appropriation? Am I being offensive. Is being regular sexy?
