Happy Valentine’s Day to the cellulite on my thighs, to the bulge between my bra band and the top of my jeans, to my round cheeks and dimples! In the name of self-love, Curvy Girl Inc is inviting women to spend today writing love letters to their so-called imperfections– and to the morons who try to bring them down. You can check out some of the highlights here, and you can see our favorites below!
First off, there’s this total badass:
Dear trolls and curvy-haters, I’m sorry that you feel the need to bring me down and make me feel ashamed of myself, but guess what? I’m fabulous! You could be too if you took the time you use to hate on others and belittle them and instead find your inner peace and celebrate self love with us. I’m a beautiful woman with curves and I feel this trait makes me extraordinarily awesome. You made me physically sick with your crude comments but I’m okay now; you might try to bring me down again but I won’t let you. Sincerely, Curvy and Fabulous!
I’m already in love with her. Then there’s this one, which hits the misogynistic, fatphobic nail on its ugly head:
Dear Fat Shamer, Internet Bully & Concern Troll: Your hatred towards fat people FUELS MY FIRE to spend every waking moment showing Curvy Women how sexy they are. Your ignorance inspires me. All women deserve to feel sexy and beautiful. My heart breaks for you that you cannot see beauty in all bodies. I hope one day you find some LOVE in your life so that you can learn to love yourself and stop putting fat women down to fill your sad, empty heart. Choose love, not hate.
Freaking flawless. And then, of course, our personal favorite:
Dear Trolls: You took the time to tell me how worthless you think I am because of my size, so I wanted to take the time to tell you that I love my body. That’s right, I love my fat body! I love my body because hating my body only leads to self-destructive behavior that made me unhealthy. When I hated my body your words mattered, but now that I love my body they just make me feel sad for you. I hope one day soon you don’t need to attempt to make people feel terrible about themselves, for you to feel better about yourself.
Word. So instead of spending this V-Day being miserable, remember that you’re hot, remember that you’re awesome, and remember that there are other cool people out there in the world who have your back– rolls and all.
