Bees, this really really irritates me. Not only in real life BUT on here. It’s getting very aggravating.
First I want to say that I am not bashing any body type WHAT SO EVER! I just want to get my feelings out there because I just don’t think this is fair.
I know that full figured girls get slack for not being thin enough all over the media and in real life, and I do think that it is bogus. I don’t think that fuller figured gals should get hate because of their bodies, they should be accepted and be told they are beautiful just as much as anyone else because they are. My feelings are however, that hate towards thin girls is rising as well and I find that the hate (not all) but a lot of it, is coming from fuller figured women, and I don’t quite understand that. Why hate on someone who is opposite of you, when most have experienced hate for the way they look from other people?
On a dress thread I saw posted recently a person mentioned that dress models don’t make the dresses look good because they are sickly skinny and don’t fill out the dresses. (not the exact words but I don’t want to point fingers exactly). But I take offense to this.
I weigh 100 lbs. I was born prematurely, only weighing 3lbs and I have always been underweight but super healthy. I find it frustrating that just because I am thin, that I can’t be just as beautiful as everyone else, and can’t look as amazing as someone who “fills out a dress”. Sorry, I wasn’t blessed with boobs or a bigger butt, although I would LOVE to have those to fill out my gown, doesn’t mean that my stick thin frame can’t look great in my dress!
All my life I have been called skinny minny, have been accused of being anorexic, have been teased and been called chicken legs. I just think that in real life, or the bee, people need to watch what they say concerning other people’s body types. REGARDLESS of whether or not one was talking about dress models, that person needs to realize that there are people in the real world, like me, who look like those dress models and who are that thin.
Being called sickly skinny is just as hurtful as someone being called fat. So please, respect all shapes and sizes and do not point out how “bad” someone looks compared to another person. Thanks.
