many many people in my dash are reblogging posts about how getting skinny would “make their life better”, and as a girl who fights against modern society standars of beauty i want to help as much as i can.
here are some things that might help you to stop, to start loving yourself and stop thinking of beauty as a physical thing you can earn by dieting.
“Why is sharing my opinion about skinny bodies wrong?”
first of all you are promoting an idea that harms people, cause getting thinner in a non-healthy way can hurt your body. your promoting a modern society idea that makes teenage girls and boys hurt themselves and it can get to the point of death, you’re promoting the idea of “fat = wrong, skinny = good”
by thinking that people will like you less if you are curvy, arent you you are telling your followers that if they’re fat you will like them less than you would if they were skinny?
“The Pro-Anorexia movement has evolved over the past decade. Girls and boys with Eating Disorders flock to these websites to get and give support to those suffering from Eating Disrders. Also, magazines, television, and other internet sources “promote” the development of Eating Disorders. Pro-Ana/Mia (as they are called, to personify the diseases) are so prominent on the Web. All you have to do is type “pro ana” into the Google search bar, and 1,530,000 (as of today) links will come up. Not including videos and pictures.”
questions to people who read this are, why do you go with the flow? why do you need to be a part of this stupid society? dont you think you’re better than that?
everytime you all think you’re different, you’re more inteligent than those girls who dye their hair blonde to look like a barbie, dont you realise that by promoting this kind of harming ideas you are turning into one of them?
dont you think people should love you for who you are and not because of your tigh gap? do they really love you if they care about that?
things we need to learn to stop promoting this harmful ideas:
- “FAT” isn’t an insult
- If someone loves you it WONT be because of your body, it will be because of your personality.
- You will always have people to listen to you, you can always message me.
- If you have an eating disorder do not make posts about it unless you’re trying to get out of it, people might want to join you.
- Promote healthy diets!
