Anonymous: I really enjoy your blog but it makes me really sad to see that you think skinny shaming is acceptable behavior. You're only promoting a culture of hatred towards women and their self esteems. Do skinny people's state of mind really mean less than that of a women with more weight? Everyone has their own insecurities and issues and if one of them is being worried about bullied about being skinny is that not valid?

Are we talking about skinny women, or skinny men? Because society treats those two groups very differently. The whole issue is on the line “Fuck those skinny bitches in the club” so let’s stick with women…

Nicki is referring to the skinny women in the club that hate on bigger women. Let’s make one thing perfectly clear, this entire globe has one beauty standard, and that is the european beauty standard, which also includes being tall and thin but most of all, thin. You can literally have any eye color or hair color/texture, but as long as you are thin, you will be well perceived. There is documented research about how thin women earn more than fat women, you are more likely to have a positive outcome in a job interview if you are thin, your dating prospects are vast if you are thin (documented research showing that on dating sites, the women to get the least amount of attention are overweight women), clothes are literally made for you, even if you are in poor health, people will still assume that you are healthy, while that is opposite for overweight women, thin women are treated as whole human beings while fat women are treated as unfinished health projects.

Insults thrown at thin women about their thinness are often out of jealousy and at the end of the day you still have a $95 billion dollar beauty industry and a $20 billion dollar weight loss industry laughing at your bullies along with you. Insults thrown at fat women about them being fat are being backed up by a $95 billion dollar beauty industry as well as a $20 billion dollar weight loss industry as well as media and society, and are meant to tell fat women that they simply are not desirable and do not belong. Also, have you ever noticed that even when a girl is skinny, the first insult that’s thrown at her is “fat”. Have you ever noticed how a woman lights up and looks down at herself with delight when she’s been told by a friend “Wow, you’ve lost weight!” and how the opposite reaction would occur if she were asked if she had gained weight. It is simple, one is equated with good, while the other is equated with bad.

I have seen girls verbally fighting, I have seen girls call out other girls on being thin, using various insults, the thin girls that i’ve seen have always ended up laughing them off or telling the other girl how jealous she is and how she wishes she were thin (i remember the time one girl said to another “at least I’m not anorexic” and that girl turned right around laughed hysterically and replied “thats a good thing! thanks!”) while i’ve seen thin girls verbally abuse fat girls and let me tell you, those girls always end up humiliated, hating themselves and in uncontrollable tears. Of course this isn’t how it always goes, this is just from what i’ve personally witnessed.

You say everyone has their own insecurities and issues, which is true. However, one side has multi-billion dollar industries representing them and justifying their mere existence, while the other side has a million and one articles on “how to dress your body type”.

I hope everyone remembers Hillary Clinton’s passionate defense of Israel’s war crimes and total silence on Ferguson when she’s running for president in two years.

Tell me about a time where a white child was killed and black people made a hashtag mocking their death, a Halloween costume mocking their death, or a celebration of their death in any way shape or from. NEVER!!

Black pride has never been about hating white people, but white supremacy has always been about hating black people.
