I realized that men don’t like overweight women, but they don’t like shapeless women either, and this has been something that has bothered me over the past year or so.
I must have sealed a deal with Satan himself, because I only have curves now that I’m overweight and I’d just like to indicate how unrealistic it is for someone with my body type to not be fat and still have curves.
If I lose my upper body fat, then I’m afraid that my hips and ass will diminish to their former size and that men still won’t appreciate my frame.
I am not originally an hourglass shape and I personally feel discriminated against because of my natural body type. To be honest, I’ve never felt too affected by high fashion as much as I feel affected by the standards of the porn industry, and moreover, heterosexual men.
While I understand that the fashion industry has made an impact on women’s body image and is the common catalyst for eating disorders (and I support the backlash against this), those who blindly assume the counter-argument that “real women have curves” and that men dislike women without them are creating a double standard.
So it’s realistic to have a 36-inch bust, 25-inch waist, 40-inch hips but it’s unrealistic to be naturally small-framed?
Anyone who purports to a conclusion like this is hypocritical because some of us are not built like Jessica Rabbit or a live-action Barbie doll, but we are still just as much “woman” as they are. Sorry that I did not “fill out” accordingly to your newfound agenda that all women must come in only one shape in order to be considered feminine. Suggesting one aesthetic for women universally, that for some of us, is only attainable through a variety of expensive cosmetic procedures all the while crusading against anorexia in order to achieve another aesthetic is contradictory.
Some of us have serious body image issues and resort to such measures as starvation because some of us just can’t gain weight in all of the “right” places.
Do you resonate with this?
