Body Shaming and Clothing Companies
Welcome to the year 2016 where companies STILL think that the way to get us to buy their clothes is to make us feel so disgusted by ourselves we have no option but to buy pretty dresses to make us feel better.
Ain't going to happen. Listen up clothing companies, I do not care if for eleven months of the year you spend your time building up women, urging them to love themselves, take care of themselves, OWN THE FUCKING BODY they are in, if you spend January trying to get people to "Violently contour their double chin" then you are a DICK. You are a dick of epic proportion, you are SO MUCH OF A DICK that if you are going to violently contour anything, it should be your dickness.
I do not want clothing companies to decide what body I should or shouldn't have. It isn't their issue/problem/GODDAMN RIGHT, to interfere and become the body police, in the same way as clothing companies do not get to decide whether something is flattering on me, or whether I should dress demurely. IT IS NOT YOUR BUSINESS.
So clothing companies that decide to body shame this January, (Or February, March, or any goddamn month of the year) be aware, we are WISE to your ways, there are people out there that make clothes for me to put on my body who do not care if I ate my own bodyweight in cheese (No regrets) this christmas. They just care about making clothes.
They stay in their lane, which is to make the clothes and take the money which I choose where I spend, wisely.
Tell me once more to contour my chin, start my diet tomorrow or hide under a cape because it is flattering, so help me God, I will never, ever spend my money with you again, and face it. There are a LOT of women out there, of ALL sizes, who feel the same. WE WILL NOT BE SHAMED INTO BUYING YOUR CLOTHES.
How do we all feel about this? Are YOU fed up of clothing companies this January?
Let me know.
