You are Beautiful

Size Acceptance Stamp by Bountiful

You don't have to find everyone in the world attractive.  You are free to pick and choose what physical features and body types you like and don't like.  But for FUCK'S SAKE, don't go spewing your hate at people just because you don't like the way they look.  If you want to snicker with your friends about somebody's big butt or buck teeth, at least do it far away from where the person can hear you.  Because you may be beautiful to your mama, but I bet there are plenty of things others could mock about you.

This rant provoked by the journal of :iconmissshyly:
YOU ARE GORGEOUS!!!!  :heart:  And I wish DA would allow for hateful, damaging posts to be removed.  There is NO reason at all for it to stay.

Wow. It is really good to read that. Especially from someone who isn't fat. So many skinny people go "Oh, just lose weight, its not that hard!" And its total bull.

Thank you.

I was dropping you a note and saw your journal. I agree. Ya know it is sad when you see hate spewed all over someones photos. And the worst part is many of these people are grown adults that find this type of behavior acceptable. God made us in all different shapes and sizes and we all have beauty in our own way. Some people are just sad.

Isn't that whole point of more than one kind of art?!?!? Otherwise it would be like a communist art world,,,like Rush's 2112 (lol) . Art,,,and all things visual are subjective. You can't even expect 2 people to agree on that fact that blue is blue, since each person's ability to see clearly is a factor! Oh well, like George Clinton, I like me sums wimmins of all sizes n shapes! (just ask the Mrs!) :shrug:

This is one of the things I admire about you, Sophie - you're a champion for the individuals of this community, and you really care about all of us. :hug:
I couldn't agree with you more on this issue - there are 6.6 billion people in this world, and each of these people is different from all the others. It amazes me that there are some people who think that all people should look a certain way for them to be acceptable. Diversity is what makes the world interesting! Some people latch on to such superficial things to judge people - and body weight it probably the most superficial of them all... In my experience, body weight has no correlation to the worth of a person, or the beauty in their heart.
I'll be displaying the stamp in my journal starting today.

I absolutly agree with you. Everybody has a different preferance when it comes to everything in the world. We all have different opinions and tastes in things but I believe people should always keep in my that that's THEIR way of looking at it; their opinion and their taste. That doesn't mean they are RIGHT. Even old Romans knew this when they invented their saying "Degustibus" - "About tastes should not be discussed" simply because this matter is very personal and insulting and hurting somebody because of it .... is sad.
Thank you for this caring post :hug:

i completely agree! even the attempted "nice" comments by some beavus and butthead types have upset stock artists and others, even to the point of them leaving DA or pulling all their nude shots. i believe in freedom of speech, but let it be prefaced by the old motto. "do as thou wilt, an' it harm none." if you're too juvenile to be able to hold your moronic thoughts, you don't belong here.

It is amazing how people can be so ignorant. That was very kind of you to share this with us so we could post our words of support for her. Thank you.

It is so frustrating that women have to be treated like this. We are all beautiful in our own way and I just think we all bring down our own selves enough with the tremendous amount of pressure women put on themselves, this is just totally unnecessary.

Anyway, this person is just really rude and mean. I do hope they come back and read the supportive responses and maybe they will see how ignorant they really are.

Thanks again for sharing and being supportive of her. Women should stand up for each other, you are a good woman. I am sure she appreciates your support.

I have responded to MissShylys Journal, and to save you traipsing through it my dear, here it is -

I am a big girl too. I have never had people bag my pictures that I have posted, but I have been bagged to my face.

One particular bagging that springs to mind was my first year of highschool. A kid called me a fat lump of lard and told me to get out of his sight.

My response?

"The only fat lump of lard I see and hear is you - if you don't like what you see, turn other way motherfucker or I'll slap your cuntish little face in"

We are now friends and he realises that there are more to people than what you first might see.

In fact, he will even stick up for me when someone else is picking on me.

We are now 20 years old, and although I have moved away from my old town, and barely see him, I can feel good in the fact that I was able to change someones ideals of what the perfect woman is.

We are all beautiful on the outside, and more so on the inside. We are all the same no matter what our pants size is, and the best part about being big is the fact that there is more of us to cuddle, and love... we get more loving than anyone else in the world!

Don't let asswombs like him infect your mind with their petty bullshit - they're the ones that should be wary of what they look like, we are perfect the way we are partly because we are more accepting of others, people like him need to crawl into a hole and shrivel up and die - Harsh but true sentiments - the world would be a better place without them.

Love and light to you honey.

Melani

Thanks... I think it is important to love yoursself first and foremost, cos if we don't love ourselves, we surely can't expect other to love us.

One of my pet hates is petty minded, narrow minded, morons, who refuse to live, learn and love.

Thank you for your support, and remember to always look in the face of adversity, discrimination and smile - You will always win if you just smile.

Love and light,

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and honestly, those that berate are typically in need of penis enlargement. *sputters* people are assholes and feel the need to voice their disgust in life from behind a computer screen that hides their pimply, braced teeth face. *sighs* sad world.

I totally agree with what you are saying and wish dA would enable a feature to allow blocking, to minimize disruptions on user pages.

People that find the need to put down others are most likely projecting and on some level are quite unhappy with themseleves. While the first reaction may be to despise them, it may be more appropriate for us to pity them.

What about us guys. I am a rather large individual (400 pound range) and guys are treated just as bad on looks as women. To most women I know you are either Brad Pitt or Jack Sh*t. Looks are a two way street and I am getting sick of it.

Like I said, I don't care what people's aesthetic preferences are, just don't go around spewing hate at people because you don't like the way they look. If someone only wants to date hunks, she has that right. But she doesn't need to start telling non-hunky guys "You're a fat ugly loser!!!" That's my whole point.

I understood your point, and am glad someone like you is sticking up for us of the larger variety. I am just glad you don't go about it as if you know exactly how being BIG feels like all those celebrities who wear a fat suit for 15-30 minutes in public and suddenly "Understand" how it feels. You put it i the right perspective and everything.
