Lol look at me treatin’ this like Twitter or some shit.
But seriously, I was looking at some pictures of plus-size models today and it dawned on me that none of them are actually shaped like me. They all have big, full breasts. I do not have big, full breasts. I’m a big girl with a little rack.
Somehow this makes me feel even worse than it would if I didn’t see plus size models at all. It’s like “hey fat girls can be pretty, but not you.”
some girls are big girls with big boobs. some girls are small girls with big boobs. some girls are big girls with small boobs. some girls are small girls with small boobs. not sure this is really related to prettiness…
even in the plus-size modeling world… well, it’s still the modeling world, you know? on the one hand a little part of me wants to say hey thanks for being a little more inclusive, but like… not every skinny girl can be a non-plus-size model. and not every fat girl can be a plus-size model either.
although the standards for plus-size models are different than for other models, there are still very strict standards. maybe some day there will be such thing as a plus-sized model who isn’t shaped like every other plus-sized model out there. maybe some day we can celebrate the different shapes that make up our world. but as it stands today, there is a rather specific body type for a plus-size model, just like there is a specific body type for a non-plus-size model too. :|
"let us compare mythologies" is the title of leonard cohen’s first published volume of poetry. which probably explains why the person GOT the tattoo. but doesn’t explain why i love it, bc i loved it and reblogged it before i googled it.
Reblog if you're embarrassed of your weight or how you look.
one time i was with a dude. he picked me up. i said “i’m heavier than i look” and his response was “well, i’m drunker than i look”
no but really? although i’m about 15lb below my highest weight, i’m still uncomfortable. i’m pretty steady at my current weight and i’m not happy about it. yes i am working on it. another 10 please.
i was never severe enough to be diagnosed as having an “eating disorder.” instead i classified myself as, and my shrink agreed with this, having “disordered eating.” i’m 15lb under my high weight and 45 above my low. i’m mostly comfortable with myself these days - comfortable enough, anyway, that i can pretty much handle the day-to-day tasks like eating okay-ish. i still avoid mirrors, 10 years later
I like people with a lot of rage. I like people who dance and kiss insistently. I like people who like to make looks. I like people who are into color. I like people who like disco. I like people who know how to cook and eat with great pleasure. I like people who can make good coffee. I like people who cuddle well. I like people who smell like earth and warmth. I like people who like to lie in the sun. I like people who like to make things with their hands.
