people will always call out people for saying “fuck skinny bitches” but when the diet commercial comes on, when the fat jokes are being made, when conversations about how fat people are detriments to society are underway, when a size 6 expects her size 26 friend to go with her to the mall even though there ain’t shit for her fat ass there, when girls are saying “i can’t cut my hair short because my face would look fat” & “when i learned that drinking alcohol could make you gain weight i felt like my life was over!!!”, and when family/friends/TOTAL STRANGERS are saying “we’re just worried about your health” y’all STAY quiet
because body-shaming someone who “doesn’t deserve it” would be the worst thing you could do, right?
Yes. Where is the skinny bitch outrage when fat people are demonized on the internet and off. Speak up ya’ll, can’t hear ya.
I’m really glad to see this discussion happening. Demonizing anyone for their body type is absolutely wrong, but let’s not forget who is hurt most by standards of beauty and body shaming. Let’s stop acting like a thin woman being told to eat a sandwich experiences the same kind or amount of judgement, discrimination, and dehumanization as a fat woman existing in a world that tells her at every possible turn that she shouldn’t.
One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to stop weighing myself.
