Body Snarking And Why I'm Not A Piece Of Meat
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
In case you aren't getting what I'm saying here.
I am ALL for body confidence, I feel that lately I have experienced an epiphany where it comes to body confidence and instead of exhausting myself and making myself damn miserable in the process I am learning to love who I am, for who I am. I may lose weight, I may not. However whatever I do, I WILL NOT PUT DOWN, OR MAKE DISPARAGING COMMENTS ABOUT ANOTHER BODY SHAPE to make myself feel better.
And people who do? Nope, you are not people I want to share my cake with. (Trust me, I don't share my cake with just anyone)
Some people will say that the picture above is just banter (Words that were actually used to me when I pulled up the person posting it)
It is the equivalent of saying, "It's just a JOKE"
Oh that's ok then.
(No, it isn't)
Body snarking is not okay, for anyone. We don't need it. No-one needs it. IT isn't an Us V Them situation here at all. We come in different sizes, different body shapes. It is a beautiful thing. we should CELEBRATE what we have instead of trying to make others feel bad.
Would anyone be happy if the poster was flipped?
You wouldn't order a steak if it was all fatty, so why would you want a woman that way?
Fuck, I can see that as a Daily Mail headline, can't you?
All jokes aside, it isn't nice is it? So why is the original poster, "Just banter"
I don't even like steak, and I'm not a piece of sodding meat anyway.
So let me hear your thoughts.
What do you think of the original poster? How do YOU feel about body snarking?
Let me know.
