h-eey asked: I hate it when people celebrate curves and pit skinny girls in the corner. If you are curvy and have that ideology that one body type is better than the other than I guarantee that if you were skinny you'd be they type to hate on curvy girls. Celebrate all body types, they're all perfect. Yes, models are thin but that's because designers want it that way as you focus on the clothes more. If a stunning curvy beyonce was on the run way I guarantee you no one would be looking at the clothes.
A. FREAKIN’. MEN.
extraordinaryeexistence asked: Do you get hate for this page?
Occasionally, but everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. I try not to take any of it too personally.
Anonymous asked: In class we were looking at examples of healthy and unhealthy. The unhealthy was a model that my teacher said looks "anorexic". What did my class say to me? "That looks like you!".
OMG, I’d be so pissed. How is this even appropriate to talk about in class?
Anonymous asked: Why does society constantly try to make overweight people feel better by saying "curvy is good; nobody likes a skeleton." Do they forget we exist or something? That really hurts my feelings because we have just as little control over our weight as overweight people do.
“we have just as little control over our weight as overweight people do.” couldn’t have said it better myself.
Anonymous asked: I really appreciate you for running this blog! At first I was worried that it was just me who doesn't like having a thin frame and that I was being oh so "ungrateful for my body". It's almost bittersweet for me to see that there are other people suffering like me. I'm hoping that others find this blog and see that being thin isn't so great and that their words can hurt. AND IF WE HAVE TO PUT UP WITH ALL THIS BULL CRAP PROBLEMS WE SHOULD ATLEAST GET BOOBS, DAMMIT.
LOL at that last sentence. Itty Bitty Tittie Committee, UNITE!
Anonymous asked: I hate going out to dinner when I'm not hungry because if I don't order much I get such concerning glares. No one seems to understand that if I don't eat I'm simply not hungry.
THIS. I get this also if I go out to dinner and just order a salad. I’m not on a diet, I just want a salad. Sheesh.
Blessedmom6x: I loved reading this!! I’m a 52 mom of 6 (the last two were twins), and I’m 5’4” and weigh between 100 and 105. I still get these comments. My daughters, ages 17 and 19 are also thin. I’ve always taught them to reply to “You’re too skinny!” with “I’m not skinny, I’m slender!”
I will say that I enjoy my thinness far more now then when I was younger. I have no stretch marks and my stomach is flat, and I’m thankful I’ve always been the skinny girl, because at 52, nothing sags either! It does help that I have a husband that loves me just the way I am :) There are many men that like this look :)
