This Makes me Sad
On tumblr last night I was flicking through a couple blogs and I accidentally found myself ensnared in this 'community' of blogs about thinness. About how they wish they could not eat to be thin, posting pictures of half-dead girls with their ribs jutting out and calling them 'beautiful'. The thing I felt most about these 'thinspiration' blogs was pure revulsion. What is wrong with our society if people strive to resemble famine victims? Not that I'm hating on thin girls, you understand, but if you are your natural weight at 8 stone there is a huge difference in appearance of someone who is meant to be 11 stone and starving themselves to be their 'goal weight'. Everyone is gorgeous despite their shape or size or hang-ups or features, especially if they are their natural body weight. A healthy BMI is a plus but it doesn't apply to everyone, and I know girls who are plus-sized but would not look 'right' or healthy if they were a size 8 and vice versa, there are girls who are tiny and petite and thin but are meant to be that way. What are your opinions on this?
