Same here! When I go out to eat I sometimes order off the kids menu. People always look at me funny or they’re like “You’re almost 21 years old. Why are you ordering off the kids menu?”
I’ve been told this so many times. But don’t you dare for a second believe this is true. I have loved, been loved and am in love. If you keep telling yourself you are flat chested stop. Now. Because in the end the only people who worry are the assholes. Unless you see yourself with an asshole then I assure you that you will find someone that deserves every bit of your love and your perfect body.
To those who have big boobs… You will find love to. Promise. Don’t worry girls I wouldn’t forget about you : )
Ok, so i’m not trying to get you to pity me, but I felt the need to address this. I’m a size 0-2 (depends on the store), and I weigh less than 100 pounds. I eat what I want, exercise regularly, participate in PE, and my doctors say I am at a healthy weight for my height (i’m barely 5 feet). I constantly get called anorexic behind my back, when in reality I am very healthy. I eat veggies, fruit, protein, all that good stuff. But I also eat cakes, cookies, snickers, candies, ice cream, etc. And no, I do not throw it all up. It’s just the way I am, I was born with this body type. But something I’ve been noticing on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and in real life, is that when people are trying to defend and comfort someone more curvy, often times we just insult people who are slim. Sometimes that evolves into stereotyping people who are slim to be anorexic, ugly, and just disgusting. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against people with curves. I think everyone is beautiful, but this just pisses me off so much. I mean, I’m starting to feel bad about being slim! What I want everyone reading this to remember is that
- not all slim people have an eating disorder
- never insult another group of people to defend another
- accept all body types
- there is such a thing as skinny shaming, and it needs to stop

Sims 4 body types
I love this. The latest game allows for more than one body type/shape and accepts that we all come in different shapes and sizes. It doesn’t discriminate. I wish more people would think like this and that we create more role playing games that allow for such character options.
"You two have managed to accomplish something together no one ever has; you surprised me.”
I’ve been fucking waiting for this photo set right here, and let me tell you why. Monsters University quickly became my favorite movie due to a single fact, that these two? They failed. They actually went to school and they failed, they didn’t get brought back in, they didn’t make a miraculous come back at the end, they fucking failed College.
But that didn’t stop them. Through hard work, perseverance, and taking opportunities that came a long instead of just settling for where they were at, they were able so still make it to where they wanted to be.
That is super powerful, it gives you hope, knowing that college isn’t the only way. Because you know what? It isn’t, you don’t have to go to college to get to where you want to be or to be happy. You just got to take chances, take opportunities, swallow that fear and do things to help change your life for the better. If you believe college is it? Fantastic! Go for it!
However, remember: Life is never over if you fail something. You just got to look for opportunities to bring yourself back up.
I put these together because I am sick of reading girls putting themselves down on tumblr because they don’t look like any of these women. There are things called high end cosmetics and photoshop that make these women look perfect by hiding their blemishes and wrinkles. The truth is they can afford far better makeup than you. The stuff they use is almost magic. And we all know the things they can do with photographs these days. Strip all that away and they’re just like you. You also have to figure how many of these women had cosmetic surgery. There is no so such thing as a perfect and flawless looking person.
You know what’s worse about this though? We see these pictures under captions like ‘SHOCKING pictures of celebrities without makeup’, and ‘Ten HORRIFYING photos of celebs’. And you know what that teaches us? That teaches us that a woman who isn’t immaculately made up is something to be feared and reviled.
Frankly, I’m not sure which is more more worrying: the idea that we should all strive to achieve unattainable aesthetic perfection, or the idea that we are unacceptable in our natural state.
(And as an endnote, you can be sure as hell that nobody’s kicking up this kind of fuss about male celebrities looking normal)
hey, now a lot of y’all can actually see what these women LOOK LIKE. and none of them are ugly or horrifying or shocking. remember folks, our society does not value the natural state of women and in fact actively goes against it and even vilifies it. whether it be makeup, body hair, weight, or any other altercation to the female form.
