Thank you :) And you are always welcome :)
“Sexism, also known as gender discrimination or sex discrimination, is defined as prejudice or discrimination based on sex; or conditions or attitudes that foster stereotypes of social roles based on sex.” - Wikipedia.
Prejudice or discrimination based on sex.. On any sex. That means that, believe it or not, sexism towards men exists!
Whenever you refer to all men as rapists and pigs you are in fact being sexist. When you claim that men have no right to have an opinion on abortion, based solely on the fact that they have a penis, that’s sexist. When you laugh at the fact that men don’t have issues, that’s being sexist.
You call men privileged because they’re born males… That’s something that is completely out of anyone’s control. Why should innocent men who are for women’s rights, who are respectful of women and who would never even dream of harming a woman in any way be made to feel like dirt because of the gender they were born. It’s my belief that that’s sexist too.
I believe in feminism and I am all for women’s rights, but on the same token I’m also for the rights of men because it’s not right to put down someone based on their sex.
Stop and think, some of the stuff I’ve seen said about men on Tumblr is incredibly sexist, if a man were to say it about a woman there would be hell to pay, but for some reason it’s become perfectly fine to be sexist towards men.

Perception-Immediate or intuitive recognition or appreciation, as of moral, psychological, or aesthetic qualities; insight; intuition; discernment
Paradigm-An accepted standard of knowledge, like a belief in religion or the stereotypical
Ask yourself these questions:
What is your perception of beauty?
What is the paradigm of beauty?
We all perceive things differently; your perception is generated by many outside and internal influences. In with that being said, the general populace’s perception dictates the paradigm of size and beauty. As years past the perception has changed the paradigm. During the Renaissance period, where “big” was the paradigm of beauty, well being and health, for some reason, over the centuries, it has deteriorated to a point to where true beauty is forgotten and lost to a small, unimaginable size. By no means am I condemning those of the petite and “fragile” stature. I am just stating that we must educate the populace into a new paradigm and perception as to what real and true beauty is. It is the person, the mind and the soul. Beauty is not found in a magazine nor is it found on television or movies. Accept what you have, be proud of what you have; yell to the world “I am beautiful!”
My daughter is a large girl, taking genetically after her father. She 22 and she has had at many times, serious self esteem issues and still does but not as much. I watched her growing up and being the brunt of many cruel words and acts against her because of her size. It broke my heart; I wanted to strike out in vengeance against those who hurt my child. But rationale took over and I knew that for her to be happy no acts of retaliation on my part could ever soften the blows or take away the hurt. When I read the positive outlook and words that are written in these blogs if gives me hope for my child, I call her a child even though she is 22, none the less she will always be my “baby gurl”. Because of the positive light this and other blogs from here have given I plan to send her a link and hopefully she will become a frequent reader and supporter. I am sure that the positive energy that radiates from here will have a positive effect and that she too can learn from you, the true meaning of beauty.
On a different note I must comment on many of the photos posted here. They are beautiful! But the one thing that fascinates more than anything.. Don’t laugh, but it’s the makeup. I don’t know why, but it does, I love the sharp lines and bold use of the colors. The outfits many of the women sport, the hair styles, the tattoos and body modifications are cool, but the makeup, especially of the “pin up” style from the 40’s is absolutely gorgeous.
As I had written to the owner of this blog, I don’t want to be perceived as the “proverbial dirty old man”. I just want to offer an opinion of someone one who has seen a lot, felt a lot and experienced things that only age and time can give you. I again salute you ladies for your beauty, your intelligence and refusal to let society dictate to you what you are suppose to be.
Change the perception and alter the paradigm!
Who says a bikini on a curvy, chubby, fat, plus size, voluptuous, thick etc doesn’t look good? Who says? Depends who you ask, but do you really want the answer? Wouldn’t you rather do what makes you feel good and not listen to the people who tell you that YOUR body doesn’t look good in that bikini when it makes YOU feel a million dollars? And who are you to say that parts of that person’s body need to be “fixed”? Why? Are they broken? No. People who show off their bodies because they want to, because it’s their decision what they want to wear, no one else’s. This isn’t a very positive message because it says to me that you think women who are bigger need to be “fixed” to look better in a bikini. Our bodies are not things to be fixed, they are not broken. If you would never wear a bikini, that’s fine, I’ll admit that I would never wear one either, because it’s my decision. But just because someone who happens to have a bigger body wants to wear a bikini, that gives no one else a right to have a say on how they look or how they think they should be dressed.
Our bodies are not broken things that need to be fixed.
Thanks Tim, that’s really nice of you to say :) Positivity is key. I see no harm in you coming by every so often with a comment, I must ask that it remains clean though, I don’t want to publish anything sexually explicit, I’m sure you understand. Feel free to comment anytime!
I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. After going through some blogs I have found more and more self confidence, which I have always lacked from being “overweight” and curvy. I can remember from as early as eight years old, my mom tried to get me to go on diets and attempts to get me to lose weight. Having two younger, beautiful, and thin sisters didn’t help much. But, I have finally found the truly beautiful side of my body, and more importantly me. I just want to thank everybody out there for all of their pictures and stories that have made me feel like I’m not alone. I feel so blessed for this beautiful body that I have been given. EVERYBODY IS BEAUTIFUL!! thank you again:)
