|It's a bit hypocrite if you think all body types should be respected but then you think it's okay a celebrity who has a huge fandom shames on skinny people and gets praised for it. Yes, I know fat people get a looooooot more shit and of course that's wrong and should be changed. But honestly if someone said "fuck fat bitches" everyone would go so mad. It's just sad everyone either shames on fat people or skinny people. In my opinion every body is beautiful and should not be shamed.|
Sorry, I hate this false equivalence bullshit. Ignoring retaliatory criticism from minorities with the blanket “all discrimination is bad!” excuse is just a way to ignore acknowledging the oppression of marginalized people and bodies.
Now, am I saying that it’s good to criticize people based on their identities or that they deserve it because they have privilege? No.
However, thin girls have been in fashion for about the last 300 years, including the development of advertising and modern media. Since then, anyone who doesn’t have a perfect body type (skinny or at most curved with no extra fat) has been systematically demoralized and made to feel less than human. They are taught that they need to go on endless diets to even be considered for acceptance and love, and even then to have rock-bottom expectations because apparently your physical body invalidates your right to be treated like a basic human being.
Sure, negative comments about your body type as a skinny person may sting, but they aren’t backed up with centuries of cultural oppression. Your hurt feelings aren’t going to drive you to hate yourself or buy products you don’t need or convince you you have no potential. Hell, they clearly won’t even knock your superiority complex down a few pegs, since you’re whining about “if I said fuck fat bitches” like you’d be the victim even even in a scenario where you’d be the fatphobic bigot.
At the end of the day, you have all of Western culture to fall back on, whereas for thick girls, Nikki Minaj and Meghan Trainor are some of the only public allies in their corner. They deserve to celebrate themselves for once.
Try turning on the TV for 5 seconds. Cry yourself to sleep on a stack of magazines. You’ll feel better soon enough when you realize that 99% of the conversation in society is all about you. Stop moaning over the 1%.
They say I have anxiety but it feels like I’m dying inside.
They say I have anxiety but it feels like the air is too heavy to breathe.
They say I have anxiety but it feels like my organs are decaying and rotting away.
They say I have anxiety but it feels like someone stabbed me in the heart and…
Things that matter. Pass ‘em on.
