thread is disturbing.
many people hold the backwards idea that we must have curves
in order to be 'real women,' and by not having curves, somehow detracts from
one's womanhood, making one akin to a little boy.
message is this sending to women/girls who have a naturally slim figure and
aren't curvaceous? Are they not "real women?" I have siblings and friends who
are a size 0 and 2 naturally - they have no eating disorders, ironically, they
eat like football players – and they are accustomed to hearing rude and
negative comments stating how they “need to eat a burger because they look
disgusting, like little boys, and are too skinny,” and this is often done by women to
our attempt to move away from the media's pressure on women to be thin and
teach women to gain confidence in their bodies, we went to the other
extreme to say that women who are thin aren't "real women"
don’t we just focus on accepting our natural body shape and focus on being
healthy, and not what we think is "too fat" or "too skinny"
for other people.
