The fight for body acceptance and body positivity cannot just be about an outright removal and ‘banning’ of skinny body types… or any body type. Here’s why.
“I wish everyone would see just how magnificent they really are.”
Truth #1. You have permission to enjoy your body right now.
What if beauty isn’t what we think it is? What if it’s not internal and external qualities, but it’s just something that permeates everything?
These women know what beauty is because they feel it and live it. They prove that when you feel it and live it, you look it. You ARE it.
“You need to eat more potatoes,” relatives would tease. “You’re going to be blown away in the wind.”
Why the harm goes beyond this one poster and why, beneath all the noise and frenzy, we should listen to what the protestors are trying to say.
There was a point I decided I would just embrace the flat-chestedness.
I’ll eat whatever the damn hell I want and dress however I feel like. Even if it makes me look like a lemon. Heck, maybe because it makes me look like a lemon. Thank you.
