What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love. But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.
Sometimes I see or read things, and I didn’t realize that I needed them until they are two GIFs of Nicki Minaj and some amazing commentary that come across my dash and I instantly burst in to tears and feel a weight lifted off my chest.
This is so important
oh my…this is perfect
i literally stared for a minute or so
Seton Lake, BC (looking towards Gold Bridge) - from our motorcycle ride along the dirt ridge around Seton & Anderson Lakes.
Camped at Owl Creek just outside Squamish that night. Spring 2014.
No, I’m not really a dancy person, but I like to move around and dance a little when I am by myself :P
Stop hating yourself. Try going one day without saying anything bad about yourself. Try complimenting yourself. Do it again. Buy yourself dinner. Put soft things against your skin. Listen to your favorite songs. Eat ice cream. Eat ice cream naked. You have to spend the rest of your life with you. You’re all you’ve got. Be kind, start loving yourself.
let me just say a few things about ‘all about that bass’ real quick
- it’s a song about body positivity and we don’t get many of those so can we just take that into consideration please
- i know people are kicking off about her using the phrase “skinny bitches” but she does follow it up with "no, i’m just playing i know you think you’re fat / but i’m here to tell you that / every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top" she’s taken an insult commonly given to slim women and basically a said so what if you are skinny/skinny but you think you’re fat, YOU’RE STILL PERFECT
- i’ve seen shit loads of people saying it makes them feel more confident, and slim women get a ton of media reinforcing the idea that their body is perfect anyway
- IT’S CATCHY AS FUCK
This is number 1 song in America right now. For a reason.
This is what advertising should look like.
These photo’s have not been photoshopped.A store in the Netherlands asked people to volounteer to be a underwear model. This is how it turned out.
These women are real women. They are not models. They are not super skinny. They don’t have a flat stomache, a flawless skin or a thigh gap. And they are beautiful.
Why can’t we have more ads like this? Is it so hard to just not use the photoshop button? Is it so hard to just show the world people like you and me? I don’t think so.
For the record;I am not saying that there shouldn’t be skinny people in ads, I am just saying that they should stop using photoshop on people who are perfect the way they are.
yes i need every single one
