Yes, you read that correctly. Yes, there is a struggle with not being fat; dare I say it, skinny. Thin girls don’t get a lot of sympathy in today’s society. However, believe it or not there are some of girls out there who are skinny and don’t like it. Not saying that the dream is to be overweight, but the dream is also not to be underweight.
In today’s world women who are overweight are criticized for the way they look. Models and celebrities constantly tell us “how they lost 50 pounds” and “healthy treats to help you slim down” on the cover of magazines, on television interviews, and even in movies. There are dozens of workout routines to lose X amount of weight in X amount of days on sites like Pinterest, and even blogs dedicated solely to it. I am here to put an end to it. I am not here to say the overused sentence “you are perfect just the way you are” because let’s face it, there is no perfect. I am simply here to inform you, the people of the internet, that not every girl who is skinny is starving herself. Not every girl who is thin wants to be that way. Just as not every girl who is overweight stuffs her face, or every girl that is a little bit bigger chose to be that way. We have these things called genes. They shape who we are and how our body looks.
Naturally thin girls are tired of hearing what you have to say. Do you walk up to an overweight girl and say “oh my gosh you’re so fat”? No. Just as you should not walk up to an underweight girl and say “you’re so skinny, do you ever eat?”. I’m sorry I do eat, a lot. Don’t assume I won’t want a second piece of cake after dinner, and don’t assume I do not workout. Also, don’t grab my wrist and mention how skinny it is compared to your normal sized hands or pick me up just to say “wow you’re so light I could carry you around for days and not be tired.” I have a fast metabolism, it’s not something you need to concern yourself with. Commenting on my weight is rude. Don’t be rude.
Also, I have a right to complain sometimes. Don’t think that my life is perfect because I wear a size 3. There are more important things in life than to concern yourself with how much others weigh. ….end rant.
