there’s literally no point in teaching girls to be body positive if you only use men’s opinions for validation like “boys like girls with curves” nah get that the fuck out of here
This is literally the most perfect post and I have been forming an argument in my head about this ever since I heard the song ‘All About That Bass’ by Meghan Trainor. Literally the whole song except for one verse is about how boys prefer women with a little more ‘junk’ and in the process makes people who are considered ‘thin’ feel bad.
Now let’s discuss my first point, WHO THE FUCK CARES WHAT BODY SHAPE BOYS PREFER!!! They do not own us and we should not base our level of attractiveness on how much attention boys give us. Everybody’s body shape is unique and perfect for them NOT anyone else.
Now to my second point, why does society always feel the need to make one particular group feel good by making another group feel bad. Like why are curvier women considered ‘real women’ whereas thin people aren’t. Like my mum says ‘what even defines a ‘real woman’? All women are ‘real women’ no matter what body shape or size you are’. Why can’t we just embrace everyone’s body shape instead of making ourselves feel better by attacking another, because let’s face it like curvier women who can’t change their body shape, thin people can’t change their body shape either.
So can we just stop making curvier people feel bad and can we stop making thinner people feel bad and every other body shape and size that there is. We all have beautiful bodies no matter what the media says, no matter what boys think, no matter what our friends think, no matter what anyone else thinks. We are all beautiful, so embrace it!
