So I’ve seen a whole bunch of posts about body positivity. And it would be great, but they’re really bad at actually representing different body types; big girls in particular. So I’ve drawn a comparison.
I’m tired of seeing posts that totally miss the point. Those posts are supposed to make you feel good about your body. But it’s hard for bigger girls to feel good about themselves if they’re represented by women that aren’t big. Fat is okay. But here’s some things that people almost always ignore when drawing bigger ladies:
- Stretch marks
And some misconceptions/ common mistakes:
- Larger breasts ( a LOT larger)
- Wider hips
- Same size waist as girls with less body fat
I’m going to put it bluntly: I’m sick of seeing fatter girls be misrepresented. I’m tired of seeing posts getting glory for drawing bigger girls when they don’t. I have yet to see a body positivity post that shows cellulite, stretch marks, folds, and spillage. These things are real, and they’re beautiful.
So try and remember these things next time you try and represent fat girls. Because if you’re not thinking about the “ugly” stuff, you’re doing it wrong.
The teeny tiny waist irritates me when people draw ‘big’ girls, because tiny waists are rare. Mine is the first place I gain weight.
Sterek AU: Derek has rules. Stiles likes to break them.
NOT EVEN EXAGGERATING WHEN I SAY THAT WHEN DEREK SAID “I HAVE SOMEONE ELSE IN MIND..” THE STEREK FANDOM SCREAMED “STILES"
SOMEONE JUST NEEDS TO KISS STILES UNTIL HIS LIPS ARE SWOLLEN AND HE’S FLUSHED AND PANTING AND HIS EARS ARE RED AND HIS KNEES ARE TREMBLING AND HE CAN’T STAND UP
