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.
All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling.
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest.
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.
