I feel that this needed to be written due to seeing a lot of hate on
people whose body type falls into these two categories: Skinny & Fat.
First off, people can’t help their body type it’s mostly genetics;
Some people have high metabolism and can eat a lot without gaining a pound, others may gain weight due to their health such as being diabetic and many other health related reasons of gaining weight.
I really hate when people say “She needs to eat a burger” like that’s going to help the situation; she probably heard people making such comments before and it may not be something new to her-the same goes for when people say “She needs to lose weight” like seriously you don’t know that person, you don’t know if they has low self-esteem or not.
So why do it? Is it cause it’s easier to put someone else down to make yourself look and feel better when you’re trying to cover up your own insecurities?
I wonder sometimes if you could wear shoes of the other person for a day and receive the same amount of hate that people who body shame diss out, would they keep doing it? Or would they
simply stop and realize that it hurts.
Remember that quote from Bambi “If you have nothing nice to say then don’t say nothing at all” I believe this applies here and in this situation.
Didn’t your parents raise you better than that? If you know how it feels to be torn down from all the harsh mean words, to catch on fire from the backlash, or to even hate every little thing about yourself, wishing you were someone prettier then why make someone else feel as miserable as you?
I know that my words may not mean anything and that it may not change society’s views on beauty but I hope to one day to inspire and save people, possibly transform them into something beautiful without them having to change every little thing about themselves cause of media or society.
I’m tired of seeing hate on ‘skinny’ and ‘fat’ which are reasons why some people have eating disorders-I remember writing about my eating disorder and binge eating which is one of the deepest and darkest articles for me to write since I always worry about society trying to judge me, label me and make me into a victim and if so I refuse to allow society to make me another victim and believe they know anything about real beauty-Society is nothing but bullshit and lies, painting a portrait to make us feel bad about being unique and different; Real beauty comes in different shapes, sizes, colors and can’t always been seen at first like a diamond in the rust.
I’m not defending just those who get body shamed for having curves it’s also thin people I’m defending too; I may not be curvy or thin but I don’t believe one is more attractive than the other, I believe the personality is attractive and their soul is beautiful; You don’t need to follow the crowd, be a better person than that and break the hate and body shaming cycle.
I’m not defending just girls or women but boys and men cause I know they have it just as bad as us, females; I know that they feel the same insecurities about their body as we do and society’s views on what kind of body a men should have is just as outrageous as a female’s body. For instants society’s view on the female body is where she’s supposed to be thin yet still curvy and a men’s body is where he’s supposed to be thin yet muscular but if we were to get real and be honest we’re not all made the same, their are different body types that’s the reality and society forgets that.
It’s bad enough that we are our biggest critics meaning that we’re harder on ourselves when it comes to our body; Stop body shaming yourself, you’re only human and no matter what shoes you’re wearing, I want you to know that you’re beautiful the way you are; love yourself and embrace your flaws.
If we stopped body shaming one group and the other group all together, replace it by promoting a more positive message such as “being healthy”, “self love”, and “acceptance” instead of promoting hate and a vicious cycle of hurt.
Basically we would be breaking down walls, changing the world, going against society’s norms, beliefs, and set standards on what is beauty by taking a stand to be anti-body shaming.
