Because everyone thinks that because skinny girls are skinny they have it easy. WRONG. Easier, maybe. But do you ever think of how much it hurts ME when I’m told I look like an Auschwitz survivor, or “Don’t go throw up your food” after a meal, “Eat more”, “GAIN SOME WEIGHT, HERE LET ME FEED YOU LARD” (this one makes me the most angry) or the gawking looks and expressions when I first meet someone….? No. Didn’t think so. It’s really frustrating to be little. So with that and all of that, I’m reblogging this from myself from a while back because it’s so good. Next time you meet a skinny gal, don’t be rude, don’t say stupid things and don’t be ignorant. It hurts just as much.
I’m small and I’m proud.
I’m sick of seeing posts with a bigger girl and a skinny girl beside each other with comments like “omg, the bigger girl is so much more beautiful”. Many people have decided that now instead of girls who are a little bigger being gross, being skinny is, which is still body discrimination and it still hurts. People don’t seem to realize that hating on people who are skinnier hurts just as much as when people hate on the bigger girls (or guys for that matter). Not everyone who is small has an eating disorder, so stop portraying that way with your comments.
“Oh, but you don’t get as much shit as the bigger girls do because you’re small and have never been pressured to have the ‘ideal body image’,” you might say.
And to that I say fuck you. At the age of seven I was being called anorexic simply because I’m built small and have a fast metabolism making me smaller in general. Clothes never fit right because the store didn’t offer XS or sometimes the XS wasn’t small enough.
Don’t even get me started on guys who think they’re saying the right thing when they say “I prefer a girl with a little meat on her bones,” or anything of the like. Do you know how you make any skinny girl feel when you say that? It makes them feel like they’re not good enough, like they’ll never have a chance and it really sucks, because believe me, I’ve been in that situation.
Big and small girls have it tough. Everyone in the fucking world has it tough when it comes to body image, and that’s just a sad fact about society today. No one gets a break. You’re either too big or too skinny or you don’t have enough curves or you’re too short or too tall or your eyes are too far apart or your ears stick out or your smile is crooked or you have braces, it’s always something. But the first thing any girl starts to doubt about herself, the thing that starts them nit-picking at every little thing about themselves is their body’s size and their weight.
So I propose we stop hating on anyone’s and everyone’s bodies because it’s not helping anyone out or making anyone feel better by comparing big bodies to skinny bodies. Let’s just stop feeding the media exactly what it wants and live our own fucking lives happy with our own bodies.
