Is this an anti-body shaming campaign that actually depicts people over a size 12 AND people of different races?
Is it christmas and no one told me? Cause it feels like Christmas
Just needs more gender diversity and I would be the happiest person ever.
Dug around for where this picture came from and it’s from Plus Model Magazine AND was involved in an article that talks about sizeism in the plus size community!
& these girls are still photoshopped to be the perfect “big” role model.
This is my little brother, Lewis. he’s 11 years old.
This little freckly, brown haired, hazel eyed boy.
he believes that he is UGLY. No matter what I say, he has no self esteem.
Because of what he sees on tv, in magazines, etc. The fact that no one (besides my mom and I) tell him he’s cute, and is going to grow up very handsome.
SELF ESTEEM/ SELF IMAGE IS NOT JUST A GIRLS PROBLEM.
Because he doesn’t have a flat/ripped stomach (HE’S 11. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A RIPPED 11 YEAR OLD?) … because his skin is pale… etc. He really just feels worthless.
he is 11, and he feels worthless.
That’s just… wrong.
I just wish he could see how cute he is, how smart, how sweet he is. and that he ISN’T worthless. and that he will grow up to be an amazing person.
can you guys help me? … just one reblog…
maybe if he sees that people don’t think he’s ugly… he will gain some self esteem… I know what it’s like to feel worthless, and ugly. Even if it may not be true… kid’s start being anorexic, depressed, and all kinds of things younger and younger these days. Because they will never live up to society’s image of ‘beautiful’.
what has this world come to?
I’m not even just saying this because of his self esteem issues, he is absolutely precious. He has the most perfect eyes I’ve ever seen. Seriously. Society is so messed up, I know what it’s like to have your self esteem completely shattered, and it breaks my heart that an eleven year old could feel that way.
Now I want to hug him.
And believe me, few kids has managed to make me wanna hug them or even like them. I am not saying this ‘cause he has issues. I think he is absolutely adorable and I hope to God that he will see it soon.
Oh, Lewis, you’re adorable. ;~;
It amazes me how beautiful people can feel ugly. FUCK SOCIETY’S IDEA OF BEAUTY! This kid is adorable. He will grow up handsome & people will fall for him. Society really sickens me. What the media portrays as ‘beautiful’ or ‘perfect’ is a lie! It does not exist! It is impossible. That’s why these ‘perfect’ models die so young. They starve for perfection! I’m not saying that these models aren’t beautiful. They are. They’re just sick. Are you happy society? Are you fucking happy now? You’re making kids with loving families feel ugly & worthless! FUCK YOU SOCIETY! I’m 5’3” & weigh nearly 200lbs! Does that make me ugly & worthless? NO! I am beautiful & so is this 11 year old boy!
