Beauty Standards: Fat vs Skinny

Beauty, a subjective concept, defies a universal definition. It rests in the eye of the beholder, ever-changing.

There should not be a generalized standard for beauty. What is considered to be beautiful varies from person to person. What you may find attractive, others may not. Likewise, what others might find attractive, you may not. And that’s ok. Not everyone perceives beauty the same way.

The fact that the media, in all its forms, pushes a single “standard” for what is considered to be beautiful, is absolutely ridiculous and appalling.

Whether you are super skinny, or super fat, it really doesn’t matter. It’s not your body size that makes you attractive, regardless of what the media will have you believe.

It used to be, and still mostly is, that super skinny IS beauty. But now, more recently, which I believe comes from the liberal views, is that fat is beauty, not super skinny or skinny at all. And, not only fat, but super fat, it’s like the fatter you are, the more beautiful you are.

Like I said, it’s not the size of your body that makes you beautiful. And, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone’s idea of beautiful is different, and in those ideals, there are a wide variety of sizes that men and women find attractive.

The problem has become the fat-shaming and skinny-shaming that society seems to have grown into. Both are wrong. Shaming, in itself, is wrong and accomplishes only more bad feelings inside the one being shamed. I don’t care if SOME people change based on their being shamed, MOST don’t, and it needs to stop.

The only thing your weight and your size matter for is for your health, not for how attractive you are. I’m talking about not only physical health, but mental and emotional health as well. Health and beauty are not the same thing.

If you are happy at the size that you are, then great. If not, then do something about it. But for god sakes stop complaining about it, and STOP making others feel bad about what size they are. Be happy with yourself, first and foremost. Let your beauty shine, no matter what size you are.

It’s not your size that makes you unattractive, it’s your attitude.

The beauty standards must go. Don’t listen to what the media forces down your throat. You are beautiful. Someone out there does or will find you attractive regardless of your physical body size.
