Hey, so guess what, boys and girls! Time for a newsflash!

Those of you who are genuinely butthurt about the fact that Nicki Minaj said “fuck those skinny bitches” in a song and have been causing an uproar in my inbox over how BODY POSITIVITY SHOULD INCLUDE ALL BODY TYPES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! need to get a reality check.

Because I mean, let’s see here. Body positive imagery for thin people is literally everywhere. It’s—

  • The representation they get in advertisements
  • The fact that their body types are chosen for film and television roles predominantly, and those with heavier frames are typically chosen as a.) side/quirky characters b.) characters designed to do nothing but add humor to the backdrop of the story c.) some sort of character who falls into a trope of some sort
  • The fact that they’re the ones who are viewed as sexy/beautiful/”ideal.” No matter what you say, society’s projected ideal standard of beauty is thin and white. 
  • It’s the fact that they have a seemingly endless variety of clothing stores to choose from.
  • So on and so forth.

Thin people benefit in society, and even heavier men benefit over heavy women. With a few exceptions—such as Hairspray—rarely RARELY RARELY does a heavy girl ever get together with a thin man. Being fat means seeing degrading and humiliating jokes and commentary literally everywhere you look. Being fat means that society sees things like this and think it’s not only okay, but humorous:

Being fat means that the only time you get to see or hear yourself mentioned most anywhere is so that you can be the punchline of a humiliating, dehumanizing joke. So don’t you dare tell me that chubby women still need to go out of their way to make sure that thin women are included in each and every body positivity post, song, statement, etc. that’s made. When you do that, you sound like the people who change “Protect PoC” to “protect all people” and “save the women!!” to “hey, men exist too!”

Stop making things supposed to empower fat people with little to no positive representation a demonic force just because you’re offended that the words “skinny bitches” were used. I’m done being nice to people who come to yell at me in my inbox about this; it’s just sad at this point. Skinny people get represented in everything in society—sorry Nicki Minaj made a song empowering us that said a mean old curse word. Fat people definitely don’t know what that’s like. Oh, wait.

JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit

for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please

Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.

See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.

Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?

nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa. 

I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.

Just my 2 cents

ALL OF THIS.

He’s not expressing confusion, he’s tilting his head for better sound localization. While having an ear on each side of the head is good for lateral echolocation, tilting the head so that the ears are offset gives it vertical depth.

Oh my gosh, that explains why some dogs put their head to one side when you talk to them. They’re not confused, they’re trying to listen to us better. Awww.
