Quick hit: Things I’ve heard about thin women

May 7, 2010

Jezebel’s Ragen Chastain has an important reminder for people working toward body positivity:

Today while perusing some “size positive” blogs I found the following comments:

“Stick women just aren’t sexy, it’s just gross.”
“What man would want a twig anyway?”
“It’s just impossible to be healthy when you are that thin, you have to be anorexic or a drug addict to look like that” “Real women are curvy and LOOK like women”
[…]
Knock it off.

Seriously.

I’ll add “get that girl a hamburger!” to the list. All bodies are valuable bodies. There is no such thing as a “real” woman. Check and check.
