So, I made a post on Facebook about the #VictoriasSecretFashionShow.
Here ya go.
"After the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, a lot of people are saying that women who are 5’9" and 125 lbs aren’t "real" and that "real" women have curves. Well, I match the former description, and trust me, I’m about as real as it gets. There’s not a size that you have to be to be a "real" woman. One’s reality is not determined by one’s physical size.
So, stop saying that I’m not real.”
In response, I found subtweets about how stupid I am and how dumb this argument is.
Well, I’m so sorry that you don’t live in my life and don’t understand. Really I am. Because being called aneorexic weekly is such a hoot. Because having people roll their eyes when you get a healthy meal is such fun. Because being constantly told that you can’t have an opinion on body issues because you’re skinny and that you can’t feel insecure when you do is really the best feeling around. Going to the gym and having people telling you to stop because you’re already too skinny is great. I’m sorry you’re missing out on this. Because of my body type, people feel entitled to comment on my lifestyle constantly. But, unlike yours, they get to do it to my face because I’m skinny and that makes it okay. Seriously.
Like almost every other female out there, I have had body issues. Repeatedly having people tell me that real women have curves doesn’t exactly help. If you have curves, that’s awesome. You do you, girl. I don’t though, and there is nothing that I can do that will make my body gain weight. Trust me, I’ve tried. Don’t tell me that my argument is stupid. Don’t use the word feminist as a debaser. And, don’t fucking subtweet if you have something to say to my face.
