a.k.a. my favorite Office quote of all time
Tyler Lucille (via amazinglymediocre)
Kind of harsh words but the point is completely accurate! You can’t praise body acceptance if you shame people for having body types different from your own!!
“Women are not alike. Women aren’t supposed to look alike. I’ve never understood why women think that it’s okay to tell someone how they should look. It seems to be a huge deal if you fat shame, but when the tables are turned and you’re telling a woman that, in essence, she isn’t a “real woman” because she weighs 100 lbs and has no hips, that’s just to be expected because we’re all about promoting self-esteem for little girls, y’all, and they shouldn’t compare themselves to those women because it’s unattainable.
If anyone is really worried about the self-esteem of tomorrow’s youth, perhaps we should be teaching them instead that comparison is the thief of joy. Maybe we should tell them that whether they’re built to look like Miranda Kerr or Adele, that they are beautiful and have value as a woman. Instead of teaching our daughters and nieces that real women have curves and that ‘those women’ are sickly and abnormal, let’s teach them that it’s never okay to question someone’s identity as a woman because they weigh ten pounds less than the average woman.” - http://www.arkansassyblog.com/2013/12/real-women-dont-have-curves.html
