There is so much i want to change, and not even about just me…everyone.
I want to be thinner, taller, i want skinny arms and longer hair, i want a brighter smile and a better sense of humour, i want female friends that want to come over everyday and watch movies AND NEVER HIT ON ME, i love my friends, but i need some fucking woman in my life, yeah yeah “One of the boys shite” Buuuut thats not the case, 2 drinks in and someone is after something more, im done.
I want to stop eating meat, i don’t even fucking enjoy it i just wanna keep my family and boyfriend happy…i spent 3 hours picking the chicken on the bone and sticking it under my potatoes, I JUST DONT LIKE HOW IT FEELS IN MY MOUTH, or the fact it was a feathery little thing like a wee ago :/ I dunno….im just being dumb
I need friends.
So I’ve seen a whole bunch of posts about body positivity. And it would be great, but they’re really bad at actually representing different body types; big girls in particular. So I’ve drawn a comparison.
I’m tired of seeing posts that totally miss the point. Those posts are supposed to make you feel good about your body. But it’s hard for bigger girls to feel good about themselves if they’re represented by women that aren’t big. Fat is okay. But here’s some things that people almost always ignore when drawing bigger ladies:
- Stretch marks
And some misconceptions/ common mistakes:
- Larger breasts ( a LOT larger)
- Wider hips
- Same size waist as girls with less body fat
I’m going to put it bluntly: I’m sick of seeing fatter girls be misrepresented. I’m tired of seeing posts getting glory for drawing bigger girls when they don’t. I have yet to see a body positivity post that shows cellulite, stretch marks, folds, and spillage. These things are real, and they’re beautiful.
So try and remember these things next time you try and represent fat girls. Because if you’re not thinking about the “ugly” stuff, you’re doing it wrong.
Stalking your blog tonight, this actually made me feel pure good.
seen this, agreed so much
