The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Important, always-relevant comic done by the wonderful Ursa Eyer.
“When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.”
my dad just showed me the whole kingdom. and i’m gonna rule it all
Show yourself the same respect and love as you do for your friends!
You do not deserve to be called fat. You aren’t fat. You are curvy and it’s all in the right places. .You have an adorable little body. You are cute and innocent. You have fat but it doesn’t mean you are fat. You are not morbidly obese and if you are it’s only because of numbers that are twisted to twist in your brain. Those charts mean nothing. I am overweight on those charts but I have 6 ish percent body fat. It just doesn’t matter. You don’t need to beat yoursel up over it. Please learn the scale doesn’t define you.
“Measure yourself with courage. Weigh yourself with love.
Starve yourself from negativity. Binge on happiness.
You are more than what society desires to confine you in.”
