Love the idea and the way you put it across, amazing!
so truuueeeee. (though I'd like to point out that you say of the 1950s "even then idealistic bodies were being pushed on women" as though it's something that only started in the middle of the 20th century when in actuality women have been pressured to look a certain way for millennia. I mean, there is a reason why all the Greek godesses look alike.) And your handwriting is not even that hard to read. haha sorry that came out sounding less like a compliment than I wanted it to be. -kelsey
Thank you for putting into words something I have been thinking about too but been unable to put as eloquently as you did.I also have zero curves and am quite skinny and constantly get 'Oh I wish I was like you!' and 'You're so lucky to have your figure!', but it always makes me feel really uncomfortable not flattered, for exactly the reason you give. My figure isn't 'better' or something people should beat themselves up about because they don't have, it just fits the fucked up beauty ideal we've been trained to aspire to for centuries.THERE IS NO NORMAL! That's my motto in life.And your handwriting is so pretty!
This is so true. Everyone is saying "oh those tiny models aren't real, they don't represent real women. We need curvy ladies instead!" Well, they are just being mean to someone about their body, and saying they aren't real women, which is basically the same thing. Perhaps one day the ideal women will be short and "fat" and all the ads will be like:"hey, you need some extra body weight, eat this magical stuff!!" We can't imagine the world being like that now, but in some places being skinny means you are poor, so they idolise bigger women. Or being tan used to mean you were poor and was so totally not cool bro. I hope this comment made sense.CarlaPs: you handwriting is so curly and awesome
