If there is one thing I am tired of lately it is of this culture of body shaming that we have created. Overweight and out of shape chicks are constantly posting links to articles on Facebook showing “real bodies.” It is always a gallery full of fat chicks and implies that any woman who is in shape or skinny doesn’t have a “real body.” It is offensive and needs to be stopped before we give these poor skinny girls a negative body image and they all stop working out.
The main argument in all of these “real body” articles is that the media has brainwashed us into thinking that in shape and skinny women are more attractive. Trust me it wasn’t the media. Men, well white dudes, have always felt this way. Want proof? Back when I was 10 before I ever knew what the media was I didn’t want to fuck Gilbert Grape’s mom, but show me Jennifer Aniston on Friends, and that got my little pee-pee moving. It has nothing to do with the media. But once again people in this country need a scapegoat for their own failures. And I say failures because being fat for the most part is a choice. Trust me I am overweight myself and I didn’t just magically gain 80 pounds after high school. I gained it eating fast food, binge drinking, and not working out. If you are fine with that life style or completely happy with how you look then more power to you, you deserve your happiness. But if you are not happy with your appearance fucking change it. It’s that simply, I started going to the gym and eating better and holy shit I lost some weight. I know, I know, you have a “thyroid problem,” enough of that. That’s like 1 percent of fat people. That’s like using, “I have an addictive personality,” as your excuse for being a homeless junkie. If you are not happy with your body image change it. Do not go off and try to shame other people. Do not go off and try to shame skinny and in shape women by saying they don’t have “real bodies.”
I’m not saying that out of shape or fat people should be shamed either, not at all. And I know that in this country there has been a lot of fat shaming and a promotion of an unhealthy body image for women. That is all wrong. But trying to correct the shitty attitudes of some by taking things in the polar opposite direction is also wrong. We always do that shit. Women used to get fucked in divorces and child support, so we went to the extreme and now the man’s life is ruined forever instead of finding common ground. Male bosses used to be sexist pigs and grope and harass women in the work place, instead of finding the middle, you ask a woman how her weekend was you’re in HR. White guys in this country have treated minorities like shit forever, instead of just agreeing to be civil, we now get people fired by taking the most meaningless comment out of context.
I know this opinion may have less value coming from a man because I don’t really comprehend the pressures women are under to look good, and men get away with being fat slobs and no one says anything, and women have to be perfect. But, if you want that to change that double standard ladies, stop having sex with us because of our “personalities.” That’s the problem here. If women stopped fucking us dudes while we are fat slobs we would clean up real quick. But apparently the fact that we can “make you laugh” is all it takes to pound you. What incentive do we have to change while we are still getting laid? You girls stop getting free drinks at the bar you hit the treadmill; we never got free drinks no loss there.
I’m just saying for once can we find middle ground. Magazines will stop using 90 pound models and fat girls will stop wearing short shorts. Hollywood will stop making movies where the super sexy girl gets everything and the ugly nerd friend gets nothing, and fat chicks will stop getting in front of me in line at Wendy’s so I don’t have to wait extra long to get a Baconator down my throat.
But also consider this ladies, if you want the sexy, skinny women taken out of the underwear ads, we want the same thing. No more Brad Pitt in his tighty whiteys. That’s right from now on, John Goodman is going to model all men’s underwear! Is that what you want? Is it?! I forgot, it’s okay to sexualize men, but not women… Seems like a double standard to me. That’s because it is, we’re all hypocrites and assholes. Who cares anymore?
