You know what, how about NO. This is the worst fucking bullshit I’ve ever seen, and here’s why.
Fat doesn’t magically make you insecure. What makes you insecure is the social stigmatization of fat, because we have this really fucked up idea in our society that people—women especially—are here to please us aesthetically.
We don’t starve ourselves to be thin because that’s whatwe want. We don’t wax ourselves hairless because that’s what we want. We don’t do all this stupid shit to our bodies because we want to, we do it because our media bullies our society into thinking that we have to if we want to be accepted.
And you know what? FUCK THAT SHIT.
I am not thin. I will probably never be thin. I am fucking okay with that. I like my ass, even though it means that finding pants that fit properly is a bitch. I like my thighs, even though they rub together when I walk. I like my stomach, even though it will never be flat. I LIKE MY BODY THE WAY IT IS. I am not here to be “pretty” for anyone else. I am comfortable in my own goddamn skin. I will not starve myself to fit into another person’s idea of beautiful.
I cut my hair short, and I stopped shaving my armpits, because I decided I didn’t care what other people thought of my appearance. It’s not for them. It’s for me.
Did you hear that? MY BODY IS FOR ME. If I want to be fat, so fucking be it. The only thing you will be able to determine by looking at me is that I am fat. You will not know anything about my health, my personality, my work ethic, my dedication, my relationships—all you will know is that I am fat.
And why is that such a bad thing? I would rather be fat than stupid. I would rather be fat than uneducated. I would rather be fat than miserable. I would rather be fat than be an asshole.
So fuck all this goddamn “thinspiration” as you call it. This is the world telling you that you are not and will never be good enough, because of how you look, and I am fucking sick of this bullshit.
Skinny does not equal confident. There are plenty of skinny girls who don’t think they’re good enough. I think it’s time we all grow the fuck up and stop equating beauty with happiness, because they are not the same.
