Curves doesnt excuse asshatery by Akunochi Curves doesnt excuse asshatery by Akunochi
Yeah, had to say it!

Before anyone throws shit at me, I'm actually pretty big boned myself but I'm actually making this one for a friend of mine who went to school with me. She's pretty skinny, but she wasn't a toothpick. But she always got made fun of at school by bigger girls, being called "Skelebitch!" and "anorexic whore!" just because she tried wearing skirts, and outfits that clinged to her tiny figure. After that she would always wear baggy clothing and hid herself because she thought there was something wrong with her because she was constantly reminded of her thinness.

Honestly I think it's pretty hypocritical that it's perfectly fine to bash a skinny girl and judge her by her weight, which it can also be something she can't control, but it's sooo offensive if you tell someone they're fat?

Now for the stamp I used the saying, "Real women have curves!" which is usually a bigger girls way of defending herself or masking her insecurity. I think it's pretty stupid.

Who are you to tell someone that they're not a real woman because of how her body looks? Isn't that what you were trying to discourage in the FIRST place? And yet you're no better! You're just as shallow and stuck up as the ones who laugh at bigger people.

Can't we all just get along? Why can't we just start a movement of acceptance towards ALL body types? Everyone is beautiful thick or thin. We all might have our preferences, but that doesn't give you the right to insult and downsize someones feminism or X chromosomes because she's not as physically developed or, God forbid, she's skinny!

Thank you so much. Not just for the stamps, but for everything you've said, both in this one and this one:

I'm "skinny" (which, based on the literal sneers that usually accompany the comment, I've determined must be an insult) and yep, I take flack for it in ways that make me think, "Wow, you'd never dare say the same thing to a full-figured woman!" I sometimes wonder if the thought process is that it must be fine to dis and spew venom at the "skinny" women because the assumption is, "Oh, she's thin, i.e., she meets this culture's current standard of 'pretty', which must mean she has ZERO insecurities about her appearance, which must mean she's a snob, which means she needs to be taken down a notch, and therefore makes all insults directed at her not only justified, but necessary to put her in her rightful place!" Probably ALL women (maybe even all people! gasp!) have insecurities about our looks. No matter how flawless and gorgeous you think a woman is, she probably has struggles and insecurities you're not aware of. No woman--regardless of any aspect of her outward appearance (weight, height, shape, colour, etc.)--needs an insult or "commentary" aimed at her body.

When I read this, I remembered what my mom always says when she hears this. She says "Those aren't curves! They're rolls of fat, Jack-wad!"XD

Exactly. I mean, I have curves, but I don't go bashing around others of my gender because they don't have curves like how I do!
I'm also so sick and tired of my sister being so envious of my curves like it's the most holy thing a person could have. Seriously.

THANK YOU! I'm someone who's pear shaped and I'm not skinny, but I can still see that both sides of the spectrum when it comes to a woman's shape are wrong. How about instead of focusing on what shapes make a 'real woman' how about we focus on whether or not the person's healthy according to doctors. Ectomorph with a banana shape? You're a real woman. Endomorph with an apple shape? You're a real woman. As a society we need to stop focusing on being certain sizes and shapes, and instead work on being healthy and happy.

if you see a woman without curves, she probably still has a vagina.

There's nothing "body positive" about putting someone else's body down to make yourself feel good.

When some asshole says: "Real women have curves!", it really makes me want to say: "No, madam/sir. Real women are those who choose to have whatever the fuck they want and allow others to do so as well without being a judgemental bitch like you are"

Aww, I feel bad for you friend. As a girl with big bones I agree with this stamp. Women are women, not matter what type of body we have.

skinny people can have curves
(it's still wrong to say that flat chested women aren't women though)

I'm 15, but I'm 5'3" and 87 pounds. I'm very skinny, and I don't have curves, really. I have the smallest indication of a waist, I'm at the small end of a B-cup, and my bones show everywhere. Wearing something skin-tight, you can see an indication of my ribs, my hip bones, my collar bones, my spine, my wrist bones are clearly visible, along with the long, skinny bones on the back of my hand. I've been told I was skinny many times, but rarely is it negative, fortunately.

I think, people need to attempt to be as healthy as they can.  But people don't need to be judged as 'this' or 'that' just from appearances because there are all sorts of factors in it.  Some people have problems being too thin or thick because of genetics, or environment (I know at my house, there tends to be loads of junk food, so I try even harder to eat carefully...but still can't do as much as I like).

I agree. Being fat is unhealthy and should not be encouraged muchless supported, but to actually hurt someone's feelings because they're skinny? wtf? Tell your friend I send hugs, okay? :iconhugplz: thanks to Depo, I'm pudgy now, but I am trying to get back to my old skinny pretty healthy self :heart:
just, fyi.

Um, just because you're fat does not mean you're unhealthy. Just because someone is doesn't weight fucking 100-140 pounds doesn't mean they're unhealthy.
I'm not fat or skinny, so this is coming from a neutral side.

oh hey, i just got back - its been a while since ive been on deviantart - but...i mean, i know some ppl can be healthy and fat and others skinny and fat... but, not me. everyone has a different ideal body type, but mine isnt fat. i have to deal with health issues due to my weight :-( im suppose to be skinny. -unlike this woman i love, her ideal body type is larger, but i do still love her, alot...more than anyone.

:iconclappingplz: YES! I agree, I am a "big" girl myself, and I think it's cruel the way society is constantly putting down women because of their size, big or small.

That's horrible the way those girls treated your friend, that was really stupid of them to do so....

We need to be promoting positive body image and not telling woman they are no good because they're not tiny, or don't have boobs or hips or etc..

All women are real women...unless they're men :)

Personally I'm fine with any body shape as long as it's natural. Once you start starving yourself to get thin, getting implants to have larger breasts, etc. I'm done with you.

Sirynia Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True enough.
Health risks either way of being anorexic (really anorexic) and severely overweight, people just need to get over it and get along with each other.

Sadly that will probably never happen and at the way this generation is going it's not progressing very far in my books xD.

It's a funny saying because you do NOT have to be fat to have curves. (well, maybe to have more curves than the average girl...) Almost all girls, even skinny ones like me, have a curved feature, mainly in the hips. Rarely does a girl not have at least a slight curvature on their body...

God, thank you.

I'm a pretty skinny person... people ALWAYS have to comment on how skinny I am. Always, mostly negative comments as well. I hate complaining about it because I'm sure bigger girls have it worse... but hell! And all the assumptions I have an eating disorder... I DON'T HAVE AN EATING DISORDER.

That being said, my ass has gotten bigger and I have more curves now and it makes me VERY happy!

I'm 20 years old, 5'00", and weight 90 lbs (15 pounds underweight), I used to get asked if I was anorexic back when I was in highschool, and I'd always have to explain them that I had a thyroid disease. My arms are really skinny, and still to this day, I wear jackets to cover them, (I've hear people say..."ew..look at her arms, she really needs to eat something"). When in fact, they have no idea WHY they're that thin. Even I know what TRUE anorexia looks like, and i'm definatly not it! I have D-cup breasts, afterall (A very rare occurance for my petite size), and a nice, bubble butt. Nevertheless, I am called anorexic for being skinny.

Oh, I eat A LOT....:iconfacepalmplz:

My best friend, she's a tad bit overweight. I've heard many people call her names behind her back and say "That's disgusting." She barely EATS ANYTHING, has an apple for lunch everyday, and drinks a lot of water, keeps herself very clean, and would never make fun of anyone.

No one is safe in this world, not even the "best of the best." EVERYONE will be made fun of atleast once in their life, everyone will have people who "hate them" for no reason, everyone will have their own rumor.

It's human nature, we're cruel, condecending creatures.

I've learned to hate people.
