So I saw this post on facebook from a friend and I was reading through the comments and was absolutely disgusted. I saw comments like “How many sculptures are of skinny girls? More beauty in curves.” and “this couldn’t be more true” I also saw comments like mine which were very uplifting.
“More beauty in curves huh? You know, I’m a size zero. So according to you, I am less of a woman and not as beautiful. That’s really messed up. That’s very anti-feminist of you. If women are supposed to support each other and uplift one another then we shouldn’t demean a different body type. That’s 100% counter productive. Stand together? Support all women? Yeah okay. Sure. Alexandra Dale Taylor couldn’t have said it any better. Women who bash other body types and agree with this make me sick. You are no friend to the movement and no friend of mine.”
I am absolutely sick and tired of people defending these memes. People AGREE with them. How in the world can you agree with them and claim you support women BY INSULTING A BODY TYPE.
Let me make this clear.
I DID NOT CHOOSE TO BE A SIZE ZERO. THIS IS MY NATURAL BODY TYPE. THIS IS HOW I AM.
I am so tired of seeing things like “Why would you order a steak with no meat?”
That’s fucking offensive to me.It just reinforces the idea that I am a stick…no shape. no body fat. no muscle. Something “real men” wouldn’t ever look at or want…
But you know what. “real men” acknowledge the fact that there are different body types and one should not be shamed to suite the other. Real mean will note it simply as a preference, as should us fellow females. My boyfriend LIKES skinny and petite women. Otherwise, why would he date me?
You do not fight the cause by fighting another body type. When will we learn.
