I am always easily offended by weight comments. I always have been.
Because I went from growing up being told I was blessed with my shape to being told I should be ashamed. I am battered at least twice everyday with hateful comments like, “Go eat a sandwich,” or, “Do you have an eating disorder?” Sometimes followed by, “just kidding!” As if this gives me back the confidence you just stole from me.
I am about 5’2”, grown the last two inches in the last two years. I cycle between 92-98 lbs. My BMI is around 16 and tells me I am underweight because most girls my height are stocky.
Your weight is just a number. Just like your age and how many calories and miles you ate or ran today.
I am sickened by all the posts about “bones aren’t sexy curves are,” or, “I work out what’s your excuse?” Or, “I just want to be skinny.”
The next person who posts something hateful towards any weight whether it be their own or desired, I WILL DELETE YOU.
1. Your body was meant for you. Getting healthy is great, but everyone has misconstrued the idea of healthy you as one shape, yet again.
2. Just because your demented idea of “healthy” isn’t super skinny doesn’t make you any better than the model controversy saying we give girls the wrong idea about their body through media.
3. YOU control what you think of your body, and THAT effects your children. If you want them to think Beyoncé is beautiful with all her curves, great. But now if your daughter doesn’t develop large breasts and a big booty she will forever think she is shapeless and ugly. Same goes for ANY shape.
Men too. Work out for YOU. Not because “bitches like guys who lift.” Because let’s be honest, we all think, “oh you lift? You must be a tool.”
Tell everyone they are beautiful. Because everyone is. Really pretty girl NEVER hear that they are, because you assume everyone tells them that. Not so standard girls don’t hear it because they don’t conform to your idea. EVERYONE is gorgeous. Your differences are what make you unique and beautiful. Stop trying to look like everyone else.
I never worried about this until I started dating, was always cheated on, and began to wonder what made those girls better than me. The answer is NOTHING. Because they look at me and wonder the same damn thing.
Stop saying “curves not bones,” “healthy must mean skinny,” and look at yourself. Seriously look at yourself, you are beautiful. Because you are not the same. So work it girl, stop hating because you’re jealous of someone because you give them insecurity about your desire.
The girls you told to eat a sandwich because you’re jealous they’re skinny? Now they’re stuffing their bras and wearing butt pads because they don’t feel feminine.
The girls you said pornographic things about because they’re voluptuous? Taping themselves in and causing internal damage with “spanks” because they feel the need to have less shape.
The girls you taunted for being bigger? Starving and throwing up because they think that there is something wrong with them.
I am so sick of trending body types. If you’re curvy, own it you sassy b*. If you’re skinny, walk every step like you’re a runway model. If you’re a big girl, girl be BIG; Beautiful, Ideal, Gorgeous.
Ok I’m done.
