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
Yeah, I get all that, but really, shaming one group else to say that another is just as worthy is a pretty shitty way of going about it. Seriously, can we get come body positivity that doesn’t shame any one group. Hell, shame stereotyping if you must, cause that’s part of the problem, but not another group of people.
Stop this crap already. Women in media starve themselves and undergo risky surgery to look that way. So if a thin girl decides to do that same, by that logic she can’t complain because media glorifies it. Between About the Base and Anaconda, the modern idea of “body positive” is shit. Loving yourself while putting someone else down is not body positivity, THAT’S BULLYING. And we have enough of that in schools between peers as is, we don’t need celebrities promoting it. And both songs only show body positivity in a sexualized way while teaching girls you need male approval in order to feel good about yourself. What kind of message is that? These people just want money or attention, otherwise they’ll know how problematic those “good messages” are.

Ya lost me at the “male approval” stuff.
