Real women are curvy, it is said. I suppose that skinny women are holograms ey!? For some, skinny is as natural as curvy is to others! All women- curvy, skinny and in between are real…in my opinion.
For years the fashion and celebrity industry, among other segments of society, have pushed a certain ideal of what a woman should look like. In an effort to disprove that ideal we, as women, need to be careful not to create separation among ourselves. Why free ourselves from ridiculous societal impositions only to cage ourselves in exclusive categories?
A person’s body type does not diminish how real they are. It doesn’t change the fact that they experience all of life’s triumphs and failures. It certainly doesn’t exempt them from fighting every day battles and challenges.
The same applies to the “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” campaign. Clearly the person who came up with the slogan is yet to encounter slow cooked homemade ribs, wings from an Irish pub or a properly mixed glass of margarita…to name but a few. Yes, there are some things that taste as good and even better than skinny feels.
Skinny, curvy or in between- you are real! All that matters is that you are healthy and happy. For to be unhealthy and unhappy is a disservice to oneself.
