plus sized models are JUST as unrealistic as skinny models.
They have been elongated, their cellulite has been brushed out, waists pinched and hips widened and rounded.
It makes us think “I’m not even plus sized pretty” when NO-ONE IS.
They aren’t being forward thinking.
They aren’t embracing body positivity
They’re just creating another unrealistic standard for women to hate themselves for.
"Oh, they DO carry it in a muted pastel! Well, that’s embarrassing…"
Hey man, I’m just trying to keep this friendship alive and you’re kinda not cooperating with me lol
Laverne Cox in the music video for "You & I" by John Legend
Side note: This video is beautiful and wonderful and I cried
This is legit so beautiful. Like. Future wedding song right here I stg
she has an incredible amount of sexual lure about her and it’s mesmerzing
Please watch this music video. Oh my God. The diversity is so amazing and refreshing. They include almost if not every race. They have a woman with vitiligo. They have lesbians. It has body diversity. It shows women’s breasts and bodies in an unsexualized way. There’s a little girl with downs syndrome. AND LAVERNE. ONE SHE’S SO FUCKING STUNNING EVEN WITHOUT MAKEUP BUT OH MY GOD A TRANS WOMEN. THE REPRESENTATION. My favorite part though, besides all of the different women, was probably the way they were portayed. We see them putting on makeup, we see them taking it off. We see women on their wedding days, we see women with their children. We see women sick. We see little and young girls, too. We see women in suits being powerful. We see women going to job interviews and at school. We see women graduating from college. We see women crying. We see women laughing. We see women showering and at unflattering angles and we see women exercising and kissing their partners and we see women as something we hardly ever, ever see in the mainstream media… People. We see realistic women doing things that women do and it’s just so beautiful and refreshing.
remember who you were
*reads the last line again*
*closes the book*
*throws book out the window*
*jumps out the window after it*
*writhes in pain while clutching the book*
*cries and rocks it back and forth*
*puts it back down on the shelf*
*Calls friend* “read this book”
