LOL, North Carolina.
And a lot of it is indirect comments. When you see an image of a woman with a body similar to your own called out as being unhealthy/unattractive OR worse yet, women with smaller and better bodies called out as being fat, it's not all that much different than being called it directly.
Imagine being a 15 year old size 10 girl and reading all about how size 6 Christina Aguilera is a heifer. Or being a say, 250 lb woman reading about a 133 lb woman calling herself fat and sloppy.
Now, men don't do this shit.... except dear Choco did.
Now we can say "hey, grow a backbone" and that works for someone who is 39 with a list of shit to be damn proud of. But you know what, somewhere a 14 year old or a 16 year old is seeing this "body judging" shit playing out and not enjoying her life as much as she should. That just makes me mad.
Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!
I guess most of you guys have never read any women's literature. I have a BA in women's studies. It's actually a common theme about how a woman's body becomes a public object subject to all kinds of things. It's not as simple as just thinking fuck them, none of their business.
I know what you are thinking now, but a women's studies degree had me reading more dead white men than almost any other degree other than philosophy. Plus I got to take pornographic film studies, which was incredibly rigorous and did NOT take the point of view that you are assuming that it did.
Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs
In all seriousness, how does this work? Obviously, I am not a woman so do not know from experience, but how does one become a 'public object' and what exactly does that mean? Does it mean that 'the public' views it (the female form), comments on it, judges it, or something else entirely?
it means that if you have a vagina, and you're not a 10/10, you're gonna have a bad time
yeah you are
