How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?
I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.
ive also noticed that people always focus on one particular line of this song which apparently makes it “skinny shaming”
but nobody ever acknowledges the following lines?
the main theme of the song is giving love to larger women because larger women are so commonly shamed for their bodies, ignored by the media and generally given less love and acceptance than thinner women, but the song in its entirety is a message that all women are beautiful. People are failing to acknowledge that
Only post I’ve seen defending this song in a SEA of people defending Anaconda… THANK YOU.
In other words, the song still defines beauty in terms of male preference.
Also note that none of the girls in the video are actually fat. They’re all still conventionally attractive, because apparently the only acceptable way to be fat is to have big boobs and a nice butt, with a relatively trim waistline. This song isn’t about body acceptance, it’s just redefining the “ideal body type” as maybe a size 8 instead of a size 2.
