i think we all know this one person…
Okay, can we stop with this?
can we stop shaming girls who have been brainwashed to think they’re never good enough? Girls who develop poor body images and eating disorders? Girls who suffer because they truly believe they’re fat when they weigh 95 pounds?
Can we stop?
Those girls need love and support and positive affirmation, not your judgement and jealousy.
And as for the guys, c’mon. Even if a girl is surrounded by, DROWNING in suitors, it’s very possible that
1.) she’s still way way too hard on herself because that’s what every media outlet tells her she should feel
2.) that she’s constantly accosted by fucking creepers and wants to date someone who actually interests her
3.) none of those guys are right for her and that’s TOTALLY GODDAMN FINE
Really felt like all of that should be bolded for extra emphasis (so I took the liberty)
Actually y’know what?
I am totally behind the idea of supporting every girl and lashing out at the society that makes even the thinnest girls feel like they’re “too fat”, but y’know what? This artist, and all the other chubby girls out there are totally entitled to feel this way.
Since I entered primary school, I have been surrounded by this kind of girl, and as a result I have been uncomfortable with my weight since I was seven years old. After years of listening to this, and saying “if you’re fat, what am I?” only to hear, “well you’re um… you’re tall so…” in reply, it’s fucking grating.
The first time I ever felt good about my body was when I developed an eating disorder (the result of massive emotional stress rather than my body-image issues). And that’s not okay.
So I get where you’re coming from, I really do. But that doesn’t mean it’s any less frustrating and demoralising to be the “fat girl” in this situation. If the author of the comic, and the people who reblog it, feel this way, those are their emotions
#valid points on both sides #like i know society does fucked up things to girls minds so even skinny girls think they’re inadequate #but damn if you don’t feel even shittier when you’re the actually fat girl listening to her (via impulserun)
I feel like the motto of 2013 was “wait what”
