“So thick that everyone else in the room is so uncomfortable” – Drake
I just listened to the Crossfit Podcast with Brooke Ence and was inspired. Women’s body images and women body shaming other women as if they were in a competition has always been something that I was really curious about. Why do some women, intelligent, smart and beautiful women feel the need to insult or even make other women feel uncomfortable?
I’ve always been pretty open in my instagram posts, yes there is nudity involved and most people would assume that the most message requests I get are from men asking me out or sending d*** pics. NOPE. Up to 90% of the messages I get are from women, luckily a big part of them are positive and encouraging, BUT there are women who insulted me, made me question MY DECISION and I don’t think that’s okay.
First things first, I don’t post anything to make other women feel bad or to body shame another body. I think our society’s concept of a “dream body” is ridiculous. I just think that women, no matter if they are strong, skinny, have curves, have big buts, have long legs, have short legs, have brown eyes, have blonde hair, wear mini skirts, wear pjs whatever the list is endless…are beautiful.
And I don’t think there is a right or wrong. I cringe every time I hear a quote like “Strong is the new skinny” or “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”. OMG. I’m so over this shit.
PEOPLE NEED TO FUCKING MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS!!!!!
It’s not just strangers on the internet, I’ve had friends telling me “you’re gonna regret posting this in 5 years” “omg how can you show your butt?” “This just isn’t right” you know what ? FUCK YOUR OPINION ON THE STUFF THAT I POST. If you don’t like it don’t follow me. If I’m curious about your opinion I assure you I’ll ask you, but don’t try to convince me that YOUR WAY is the right way and there’s no it between.
In my opinion, women should encourage other women. Another woman’s beauty is not the absence of your own. I’m just so over fighting battles that are not worth fighting. And I think it’s concerning a lot of girls.
Especially since I started doing Crossfit and everyone is warning me to not get big, to not look bulky, to not look like a man, to not whatever can’t recall it. Why do you think you have the right to tell someone they should not look a certain way? This is so personal and I get really emotional thinking about this topic. Everyone is responsible for their own body, what they want to achieve weather it’s about performance, health, losing weight, gaining weight, building muscles, recovering, just getting better or even looking skinny. I don’t want to hear any of those comments again. Why do you even bother?
