This stamp is mainly targeted at people who are skinny and have been MADE FUN OF for it. (Yes, it DOES happen.) I've noticed our society has really kicked it down a notch on making bigger bodies looks grotesque and be more accepting towards it. Can't really say the same for petite bodies. Now it seems like everyones slamming onto thin bodies, throwing on "disgusting" or "repulsive" labels on it, comparing it to anorexia.
This type of bullying happened to one of my good friends and even though I myself am pudgy, I couldn't help but feel disgusted. She even told me once on the verge of tears that she felt like something was wrong with her since people kept constantly pointing out how skinny she was and felt weak and underdeveloped. (Despite of my attempts to assure her otherwise.)
I've even had a few people share their own stories of being bullied due to their thinness and it really broke my heart.
And just for the record I'm going to copy and paste a great comment I got on my previous stamp that really explains why people feel the need to do this:
"It's the cycle of oppression and guilt, and it's happening everywhere.
Women had no rights, they got them, and now men getting beat up is a punchline and the "men are stupid and sex-obsessed pigs" stereotype is considered a fact. It's penis guilt.
Black people were enslaved and oppressed, they got rights and freedoms, and now white people are considered uncool in every way. White guilt.
Gay people were attacked for their sexuality, now they're moderately safe, and you get attacked for not wanting to see a dude with his dick in another dude's ass on deviantART. Hetero guilt.
Fat girls were dumped on, always treated poorly because of their body types. Now there's acceptance of appearance, and now skinny girls take shit(the recent celebrity anorexia wave didn't help). Skinny guilt.
The oppressed gain rights, the oppressors stand back and take pent-up anger for the generations of subjugation, and soon the oppressors become the oppressed, and the cycle begins again.
Until we can learn how to just drop this whole "I'm entitled to get payback for the way I was treated" mentality, which we probably never will because collectively we're a bunch of narcissistic and selfish assholes, then this will just go on...and on...and on...and on...and on...and on..."
Kind of a soul counterpart from my previous stamp:
Just google up 'skinny girl' and tell me how many skeletons you see. (that are obviously edited!) Quite a lot huh? Well this is false advertisement. Just because a girl is skinny doesn't mean she's anorexic, sick, doesn't eat, etc.
Just like bigger bodies, sometimes that's just they they are. Is there anything wrong with that? No.
Or for example, this picture here: [link]
I'll answer their question with another question: When did people start putting other body types down in order to make a different one look better? Since time started. Good job at continuing that trend loser.
Anyone else notice that kind of hypocritical bullshit how you should "Stop bullying big girls!" but then turn around and make fun of a skinny person and that's perfectly acceptable?
I call shenanigans.
Some women exercise/eat healthy and are skinny, or some just have a hard time of putting on weight/medical condition. There's always a story behind why a person is skinny or larger. (Don't wanna say fat because that word needs to stop being used when describing a person)
if anything, it's fat people who are being oppressed. body shaming of ALL types are wrong, however. it's not a person's body type that makes them.
you know who's ugly? people like you. people who feel like their body types determine who they are. what's so beautiful about being skinny? fat people can be pretty, too. you don't have to be skinny to be beautiful, asshole.
seriously, piss off.
You aren't "better" than anyone because you work out. All fat people aren't fat because of a lack of physical activity. You have no right to have ANY opinions about fatties because you aren't one -- you wouldn't truly know anything about them even if you tried to learn.
Just as some people are skinny as hell even though they eat tons of chocolate and sweets every day without much exercise, some people can exercise, eat rather healthy and still gain pounds faster than normally.
If a person is so overweight tey can't get up stairs or walk proberbly, it's most likely because they have some serious problem, ex depression. This also means that 'working out' won't do any good because they won't lose weight before the problems causing this are solved.
I think I love you! I'm pretty small too (I only way 90 pounds, double 0, extra small) and I get picked on, bothered, and pointed out about my weight all the time. I have a fast matabalism, I can't control something like that. And yet people are allways asking "what's your diet plan," "how could you let yourself get so small," I've even had friends parents force me to eat more food, no matter how much I complained and said I was full.
seeing that there are other people out there that know what I'm going threw, and understand makes me feel less alone in this "tiny world" I have to live in.
I'd be so nice if people would finally get that everybody is fucking beautiful in their own ways.
everyoone is like "big girls are soo pretty"
but when they talk about skinny girls "ugh so ugly!!! you are SIIICKKK"
someone even reccomended a good doctor for me. like what the fuck, seriously?
It just seems odd that obesity is the new sexy in the western world. I think it's also sick and sad how society is encouraging morbid obesity and don't get me started with the feeder and gainer fetishes out there.
I just think hypocrisy sucks, plain and simple.
I mean, as long as you don't have to starve yourself to get that thin, then I have absolutely no problem with skinny girls.
its just sick to me. im not saying i hate fat people because thier still people. besides fat out side of the body is probably the grosses thigs i have ever seen! And im not skinny im rather chubby but im not ganna post pictures of me all over the internet showen my belly!
