Reblog if you’re a cuddler.
I don’t know if I’m sad or angry or what. What am I feeling.
and it hurts because I know it’s true
Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +
How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?
I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.
ive also noticed that people always focus on one particular line of this song which apparently makes it “skinny shaming”
but nobody ever acknowledges the following lines?
the main theme of the song is giving love to larger women because larger women are so commonly shamed for their bodies, ignored by the media and generally given less love and acceptance than thinner women, but the song in its entirety is a message that all women are beautiful. People are failing to acknowledge that
if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao
I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.

Anonymous said: Feminists keep fighting for the right to walk around with little clothing or naked without being sexualized. Yet if there were men fighting for the same thing, feminists would be all like "NO! Men can't do that, it promotes rape culture!!"
Can you imagine men fighting for the right to walk around half naked? Can anyone?
Yes I agree. It WOULD be silly for men to fight for the right to walk around half naked. Because they already have that right….
In 1935 it was equally illegally for men to expose their chest in the US as it was for women. Men protested by marching topless. By 1936 it was no longer a crime and actually considered normal.
So yeah, men did fight for the right to walk around half naked, and they got it as soon as they asked.
Hahahaha I hate everything.
