Can you feel it? There is a change in the air.
With women who are already in the public eye like plus size models and Jennifer Livingston standing up to society’s expectations, we are on the road to something great. And now an unknown who just wanted to share her personal body acceptance becoming a positive image for women everywhere virtually overnight, it feels as though we have a revolution on our hands.
Women who do not fit the mold of what’s considered traditionally beautiful because of their weight will not be bound in invisible corsets to keep them tiny and mum, they’re fucking over it; they’re ready to begin their crusade. And although there will always be those who will try to get in their way either because they’re misinformed, trolls out to cause trouble or just simply haters, the pendulum is swinging and will eventually find its way permanently on the other side — where it will stay and where it belongs.
In the words of Stella Boonshoft:
THIS IS MY BODY, DEAL WITH IT.
and FUCK YOU ALL who tried to degrade my being and sense of self with your hurtful comments and actions.
GUESS WHAT IT DIDN’T WORK HAHAHAHAH
Something tells me that the girl, Emily, who bullied Stella in middle school is sitting somewhere feeling like a real asshole right now, because this bullied kid is totally winning. Not that life is a competition, of course, but everyone loves to see the underdog take her proper place in the sun.
