body positivity is a really great thing!!! but please remember that being thin is not a guarantee of self-confidence, or an excuse to insult someone.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!
Yep. I used to be a really skinny kid and I was often called a “skinny bitch.” It’s not a nice thing to call someone—and it made me feel guilty for having the body I had. And now that I’ve gained weight, I’m told from many sources that I’m not skinny enough. It often feels like you can’t have a body at ALL if you want to avoid people telling you what they think is wrong with it.
Body positivity is for ALL bodies!
You know, posts like these really annoy me because I am absolutely appalled that they’re actually necessary. Like, seriously people. Why can’t everyone stop talking shit about other people and we can all just like… be beautiful individuals together or something.
