Today's post is long overdue with many thanks to Fat Fox for stepping up! Trigger warning for body shaming.
I was scrolling through Pinterest today, actively avoiding the thinspo bullshit, when I came across this image:
exactly did we become a society that was so narcissistic that
individuals feel entitled to demand that everyone meet their visual
standards? Women shouldn't be seen without bras, makeup, nylons, hair
done, blah blah blah etc. Or fat people shouldn't be seen kissing,
hugging, walking, breathing, existing, blah blah blah etc.
a little secret folks: Grow the fuck up. If you can't manage to see an
adult woman without a bra, and not feel an intense need to either
directly shame them or indirectly shame them online, then perhaps you
should consider therapy. I am flabbergasted by this persistent idea that,
in a world of nearly 7 billion people, someone feels that their own
personal sensibilities are so unique and so special that no one should
dare offend them by existing in any state other than 100% sexually
certainly hope this person isn't looking the next time I leave my
house. I am a grown woman with hairy legs and armpits, super-duper fat
body, often shaved head, sans make-up, in stretch pants and a t-shirt,
with either no bra or a leisure bra.
Beware! I am a boner-killing, retina searing, fashion disaster. Hide yo children! Avert your eyes!
