Musings on Body :: Battle Of the Body Types

This has bothered me for sometime. The pictures have been going around that 'men love curves' with all these pictures of curvy woman. Some have even gone as far as being openly insulting calling women 'sticks' and so on and so forth

So now, instead of balimea and anerxea we are trying to create a reverse condition because it's okay to make one class or size of woman feel better at the expense of the other?

I know that one of the first things i will get is that i am just saying this because i am one of those 'skinny minis' to which those insulting texts are referring but make no mistake about it, small as i might be there are many many beautiful curves to this body because the skin I'm in was beautifully crafted just for me and i adore it.

We all have our insecurities, mine are fleeting, thank God! Unfortunately, not every woman can say that. Not everyone has come to a place where she adores her body so much that words that plant seeds of being possibly incomplete or insufficiency do not rock her.

I am continually amazed how nobody wants to take responsibility for their words and the impact they let loose on our world, the world we are ALL in together. How disconcerting it is that people say and even worse think it's no big deal to fill the minds of others with rotten thoughts of a 'less than enough' self.

Humanity has a rich history of taking a negligent approach towards the future and then wondering how it is we got to where we are headed.

Allow me to share with you one of the songs from my favorite female South Korean band 2NE1 that speaks of the mentality i am talking about:

Peace. Love Acceptance.


  1. It's really sad that people say one body type is better or worse than another. I believe all women to be beautiful, no matter their size.

  2. Loved this post. Every person is beautiful no matter what their size.

  3. Right ON! What exactly dictates as real or fake? A female has enough to deal with, without have to worry about being to thin or to skinny. We were made with different shapes for a reason. How boring it would be to be the exact same. Women cater to many diversity and likes. Petite or large should not dictate a females worth. What's important is her health, both mentally and physically. Besides we females have way to much to deal with and way to busy to have to worry about being skinny/curvy "real".

  4. You make a very good point here. I think sometimes people don't mean to be cruel, and don't realize the impact of what they are saying- which I know doesn't always make something right. But what helps is if people say something and discuss issues, in my opinion. Of course,everyone is going to have an opinion and has a right to their own opinion. I'm glad we weren't all made the same. That would be incredibly boring, and I'm also glad that one type of body or face isn't the universal image of beautiful anymore! -Jessica L
