I’m focusing on messages that I’ve seen on Tumblr that put down skinny girls, such as one that I saw that said “Men like meat on their girls, bones are for dogs” (something along those lines). I think “real women have curves” is better, and it’s great about encouraging women of all shapes to feel okay in their skin, but it’s unnecessary and wrong to have to put down skinny girls in the process :)
This is a reply to those posts that say things like “real women have curves!” etc. Not having curves doesn’t make you any less of a real woman.
Note: I am not trying to imply that HAVING curves makes you less of a real woman either…
This. This so much. Although, I actually do like the “real women have curves” thing, since it’s a positive message and all. Mostly I just have always hated the implication that skinny girls aren’t “real” women, whether that’s how they’re naturally built or not~
katebarberio asked: BE ON TUMBLR MORE.
I KNOW. I’M SORRY THIS BLOG IS SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT. ;o;
Kay. So I’m not Swiss, but my family lives there and I did for a year too. AND I GET THIS ALL THE TIME. XD
Explanation: Being nice to people doesn’t mean you’re a fake person, either you 1) are just a nice person, 2) WANT/TRY to be a nice person, or 3) don’t want to be a mean person. That sounds really repetitive, but it isn’t the same! Just because someone tries to be nice doesn’t mean they’re being fake. You can’t get through life being a jerk whenever you want to be!
^ I AGREE WITH THIS SO MUCH.
This is a legit concern of mine sometimes. I like to think I really AM a nice person, or I try at least, but then I wonder how people perceive it or how I come off. Because if people think it’s fake then it just seems like I’m a secret bitch. Which is totally not something I want to let people in on.
LOL KIDDING. When I’m nice to you, I really do mean it :)
If you know me (well enough) you understand how this photo captures two things I love and stand for.

Kevin: omg legit laughing XDD curvy wtf…continue to vent plz
Me: there was a lull in the convo bc im not very invested in speaking to him. and he asked when i was going to grow the other two thirds of myself. and i was like LOL i didn’t have any plans to actually, although my size or lack thereof does keep coming up lately. and he was like bahaha, it’s unique, and the other upside is you’re curvy. kevin, take note: never say this to a girl online in the middle of the night
Kevin: HOW DARE YOU MAKE ME LAUGH IN REAL LIFE…! XD
Me: LOL XD
Kevin: oh my gawd what is your life! XDD
Kevin then offered to treat me to some KFC in honour of my new curvy body.
He would, wouldn’t he? =<
