Skinny Shaming: Size Zero is Not Your Business.

No, I am not anorexic,
Thank you very much.
Yes, I am thin.
No, don’t tell me to eat more.

Society says “Real men love curves… ”
I don’t give a hoot what society says.
My body was not made
For real men to love.
Real men are not that
Section of the male human specie
Who sexualize every woman they see
No, they’re not.
Let men like whatever they want.

I am naturally skinny
I eat a lot and I don’t starve myself.
Why does society tell you to love your
Curves and make it seem wrong for me
To love my “bones” ?
Why do you say “skinny” in that way,
Like its some kind of disease but think
It’s horrible for me to label you “fat” ?

If you can look at me, with lips curved like
That, like what you see disgusts you so
Much and tell me to gain weight,
Why is it wrong for me to look at you
the same way and tell you to lose weight?
If you can feel beautiful being big,
Why can’t I feel beautiful being small?

Don’t tell me I have the body of a
12 year old. Thank you. I have a mirror.
Don’t remind me that my clothes look
Baggy on me. I know that as well.
Don’t you dare say I’m too boyish for you.
I am mine, before I am anyone’s else.

Don’t get me started on what
A real woman should look like.
Don’t say a real woman must have curves,
Muscles or be fat or skinny.
No. Don’t be silly.
A real woman is whatever the
Hell she wants to be

.

Don’t say I don’t have to
Worry about how I look.
I am human.
I have insecurities and fears too.
Don’t offer to help me so I
Wouldn’t snap in half.
Skinny does not equal weak.

I am thin and I am fine.
Don’t tell me to eat more.
I don’t need your approval.
Don’t think I want to be
Carried because I look small.
Don’t call me cute because
I am petite.
I am a woman, not a baby.

Let me be.
Allow me to be myself.
To love my body and be
Comfortable in my own skin.
Don’t put other people down
Because of their body types.
The world had had enough of
Crappy, annoying and stupid opinions.
Yours is not needed.

Do not skinny shame me.
No. It’s not okay.

  2. Lmao. Yes. Yes. Yes. This is amazing.
    Can people stop it with all the body judging already? God. I can’t.
    “Oh, she’s so skinny. She hasn’t been eating.”
    Or maybe that’s just the way she is, jealous bitch? Shut the hell up.
    You have awesome one-liners over there. You’re the next Tyrone Lannister, Dorian. Please. Keep writing.

  4. singing to you Bruno Mars…Just the way you are…in my voice.
    “Just The Way You Are”

    Ohhhhh ohhhhhh ohhhhhh ohhhhhhh

    [Verse 1:]
    Oh, her eyes, her eyes
    Make the stars look like they’re not shinin’
    Her hair, her hair
    Falls perfectly without her trying
    She’s so beautiful
    And I tell her everyday
    Yeah

    I know, I know
    When I compliment her she won’t believe me
    And it’s so, it’s so
    Sad to think that she don’t see what I see
    But every time she asks me, “Do I look okay?”
    I say,

    [Chorus:]
    When I see your face (face, face…)
    There’s not a thing that I would change
    ‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
    Just the way you are (are)
    And when you smile (smile, smile…)
    The whole world stops and stares for a while
    ‘Cause, girl, you’re amazing (amazing)
    Just the way you are (are).
    Yeah

    [Verse 2:]
    Her lips, her lips
    I could kiss them all day if she’d let me
    Her laugh, her laugh
    She hates but I think it’s so sexy
    She’s so beautiful
    And I tell her everyday,

    Oh you know, you know, you know
    I’d never ask you to change
    If perfect’s what you’re searching for
    Then just stay the same
    So don’t even bother asking if you look okay
    You know I’ll say,

    [Chorus:]
    When I see your face (face, face…)
    There’s not a thing that I would change
    ‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
    Just the way you are (are)
    And when you smile (smile, smile…)
    The whole world stops and stares for a while
    ‘Cause, girl, you’re amazing (amazing)
    Just the way you are (are)

    The way you are
    The way you are
    Girl, you’re amazing (amazing)
    Just the way you are (are)

    [Chorus:]
    When I see your face
    There’s not a thing that I would change
    ‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
    Just the way you are (are)
    And when you smile
    The whole world stops and stares for a while
    ‘Cause, girl, you’re amazing
    Just the way you are

    Yeah
