I just wish you had a better song to jam to when you’re feeling low about it!
And do you want thin girls to feel the same way about their bodies as you have about yours? That’s not really fair, no matter who has received the most body shaming in the past!
I get where you’re coming from, but with the way out culture is nowadays- having *one* piece of pop culture telling us that it’s okay to be chubby in a sea of thin-only images/songs/movies is a drop in the bucket to us. Most fat representation in the media is about making it a punch line, not telling us it’s okay.
Maybe just try to understand that while thin-shaming is, of course, bad- we have little to no encouragement from the entertainment world at large.
I think ONE song that tells us we are rad is pretty okay.
It does suck that you’re getting hate though. I do think people are just annoyed because we get thrown one bone and people get upset about it.
Don’t listen to the people giving you shit and saying awful things though, friend, because you don’t deserve it.
There just needs to be more understanding all around.
Keep your ask off and your chin up, the hate flood will die down eventually. People only harp on stuff but for so long before they get bored and find a new punching bag.
Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +
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
I love how people take one line and take it out of context.
That line could also be taken as “bitches that happen to be skinny and are hating on me because I’m not.”
I love and support loving your body matter the size, color, shape, weight, or anything else.
As a heavy person that is that way partly because of depression and anxiety medications, I really love the support for me in this song.
Also, can we not be like the guys who call out feminists because “what about men’s issues!”
I will talk about your issues, because I support you, BUT HOLD ON FOR A DAMN MINUTE WHILE WE LOOK AT SOMEONE ELSE FOR 30 FUCKING SECONDS GEEZ.
SORRY NOT SORRY.
Also the lyrics do state ’I know you think you’re fat’, hinting that sometimes even skinny girls feel like they’re not perfect and she’s blatantly stating that they are no matter what.
Society’s standards are really high nowadays and she just burns them to the ground. What a babe.
But like honestly, there are loads of songs glorifying and praising other body types- but when big girls get a song that’s all about telling them it’s okay- people want to get up in arms? Let us chubby ladies have this ONE piece of pop culture please. If you’re feeling not loved for being skinny, go look inn any magazine, watch any movie, watch music videos, go to any store in the mall and check out the models, the mannequins, the fashionably skinny clothes. Holy hell- I hate when people get mad about this SINGULAR piece of music telling chunky ladies they’re worth something too.
