I just…. there is so much wrong with this like THIS IS A SONG FOR PLUS SIZED POSITIVITY IN A WORLD WHERE THERE BASICALLY IS NONE and thin people STILL have to make it all about them and their feelings while girls are literally KILLING THEMSELVES out here to fit into a standard of beauty that should be considered arbitrary.
I just. I need to sit down a moment I am literally so mad.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY GRINDS MY BONES???
IN THE SONG SHE SINGS “FUCK THOSE SKINNY BITCHES- /NAH IM JUST PLAYING/ I KNOW YOU THINK YOUR FAT BUT EVERY INCH OF YOU IS PERFECT FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP’
SHE LITERALLY SINGS THATS SHES KIDDING AND SHE THINKS YOUR PERFECT
SO YH FUCK THESE COMMENTERS BECAUSE YH THERE MAYBE SOME OTHER ISSUES WITH THE SONG BUT IM NOT DEALING WITH PEOPLE WHO DONT LOOK UP LYRICS
DEAR SKINNY GIRLS COMPLAINING: I’M SORRY THAT WHEN SOMEONE FINALLY WROTE A SONG THAT TELS ME I’M BEAUTIFUL, IT MADE YOU FEEL BAD (EVEN THOUGH IT’S BODY POSITIVE FOR ALL TYPES). IT FEELS FUCKING AWFUL, DOESN’T IT.
Yeah, I really like this song actually.
Like I’m really underweight due to medical issues and disability, and I don’t like how I look in a bikini or low-cut tops where you can see my collar bone or spine and shoulder blades. Mainly though I don’t like being reminded, visually or otherwise, of my own physical weakness. I get exasperated at what a struggle it is for me to build muscle and endurance due to my disability, and I feel very self-concious if I’m struggling physically and I think people might be staring.
But I don’t feel self-conscious listening to this song. I feel like if I met Meghan Trainor in real life she’s be really fun and sweet. I don’t get the vibe, from that one line, that she’s antagonistic to underweight women. I think she’s just against this ideal supermodel figure, which obviously isn’t referring to people who are underweight because of CF (or muscular dystrophy, or hyper-thyroidism, or any sort of issue that makes people look strangely thin).
I feel like it’s really empowering, at least in the limited way a music video can be empowering.
I can’t help but wonder if the self-described “skinny girls” who are offended by this song are actually underweight? Have they ever had to do hours of physical therapy? Have they ever needed a g-tube, have they ever cried in front of a nutritionist or gotten into a shouting match over Ensure and protein bars? Have they ever gone for months needing 10-12 hours of sleep per night because they just couldn’t get the nutrients they needed? Have they ever seriously considered testosterone shots or other extreme forms of treatment to get the body type they want? Or hell, breast augmentation surgery?
I would guess not. I would guess these offended girls are “normal.” They’re used to being told not only that they are attractive, but that they are attractive to the exclusion of others, and this state is so normal for them that the mere fact that someone wants to compliment and celebrate fat girls breaks their safe status-quo. That’s why they’re offended.
And here’s why I’m making that assumption: if you truly, seriously had to deal with being underweight you would have so much fucking empathy for fat people. Look, compared to where I was in high-school and especially middle school, I’m in a pretty good place now, weight-wise. But I definitely get it. It’s hard.
The physical struggle is hard, working out and eating right for your body and feeling like you’re not making much progress and you’re just less happy. The mental struggle is hard, not just body image and self-esteem but also dealing with fighting yourself when you know you should do something but you don’t want to because it’s uncomfortable or downright painful, and then hating yourself when you don’t. The financial struggle is hard if you end up choosing medical procedures like bariatric surgery or medications.
I have never been fat, but I think being underweight, or disabled, a person can really relate to this video.
