I'm sorry, but I need to have a rant.
I am sick and tired of seeing women (and sometimes men) spread these stupid one-liners around. They're not empowering, they're just as vile as "harpoon the fat chick," style one-liner bullsh*t.
You know what, real women do have curves... but plenty of other real women don't. About all a real woman has to have to be a real woman is the ability to view herself as a woman. If she does that, then she's a real woman. A woman who is curvy doesn't "out-woman," a skinny woman without curves, and while we're talking curves... curvy isn't "fat." Yes, it seems to have become a nice way to say "fat," but they're not the same thing. You don't need to crack it when a skinny woman is called curvy... because if she's got hips and boobs, and a smaller middle, then she's curvy, even if she's a size 8. So stfu about that too.
I am so sick of the "When did THIS..." (usually pics of skinny models) "become hotter than THIS..." (usually curvier women who also happen to have a little more flesh on them) crap that is showing up all over FB. You know what? It didn't. What's hot and what's not is all about perception, and you don't need to degrade one body type to make another feel accepted. All should be accepted, because we all get what we're given... dieting, exercise etc... it can change you a bit, but if you've got curves, you're going to have them regardless, and if you're not curvy, you're unlikely to procure them using natural methods (ie. without surgery). And you're just fine the way you are.
So seriously, bigger-than-average chicks... stop saying this skinny-hate crap. You spreading that filth is just as bad as people taunting you because you're not thin. It's just as nasty and unfair, and it makes you look like a superficial jerk.
I have never been, nor ever will be, skinny. Unless I get some horrible disease, I will never be a small girl. I've lost my weight, it seems to have stopped here, and I'm still curvy, I still have flesh on me. I'm 71kg and still "overweight," according to BMI. So I mean... this isn't coming from a skinny girl lamenting about how hard life is as a size 8... trying to tell all of you bigger than that, that my life is so much harder. Because it's not. I might not be "obese," anymore, but I've been plus-sized for far longer than I've been standard-sized, and this has never ever sat right with me.
Perhaps because I come from a skinny mother - who, when she was growing up, faced the same crap about her body shape I did, expect for the fact that she was skinny rather than curvy... whereas my generation seemed to want me to be the reverse (skinny, not curvy... except for maybe in recent years).
Nobody needs to be put down for their body shape, and to target thin women thinking it'll empower not-so-thin women is pathetic and it doesn't work. It just creates and US VS THEM mentality, and honestly... just stop.
Anyway, there's my rant. I'm done.
