I've been put down my whole life for being too skinny. I was bullied for having really thin legs. People would say that I was chicken legged. I was called 'boobless' 'assless' 'Mrs bones' and I would look at myself in the mirror each day and think "maybe they're right. maybe I am this horrible, ugly monster that they claim I am." I hated my body. While "fat" "curvy" girls were accepted and praised, skinny girls were looked at like trash. We're people too. Especially me, I can't help my genetics.
I think a lot of overweight people are hypocrites. I'm naturally tall and skinny, my family are all naturally skinny too it's just part of our genes. I eat what I want, I don't starve myself, and I am beautiful. Sso why are you allowed to love you 'curves' but its wrong for me to love my 'bones'? People say "real women have curves". Why is it okay for you to call me anorexic, but horrible for me to call you fat? If you can tell me to 'gain weight', why can't I tell you to lose weight? If you can feel beautiful for being big, I can feel beautiful for being small.
Why is it acceptable for people to post things like: "Women are meant to have curves, boobs, big thighs and a nice ass. Who wants to be with a toothpick? I mean seriously. There's no place for a guy to put his hands"
What has happened to our humanity? I would never ever call a person fat or chubby or disgusting because of their body. So why am I constantly being called too skinny or a twig? I think everyone needs to come together and be humans again. We need to get over this 'body shaming' phase and accept everyone for who they are because everyone, whether we know it or not, has body insecurities. Everyone is beautiful.
