This is a pic a friend sent me on facebook. Now that you have seen this, you are protected from all the retarded spam stuff.
These are my legs.
They rub together, have stretchmarks, dry skin, scars and cellulite. They don’t look always look good in pictures. They don’t fit into topshop jeans.
But I love them. Do you want to know why? Do you want to know how I can love a pair of imperfect legs?
I choose to. I say ‘fuck it’ to the ‘ideal’ shape, length and circumference of a woman’s legs. I say ‘fuck it’ to the people who make jeans who decide no woman with a small waist has big legs. I say, nobody gets to choose whether or not I am beautiful except for me.
Small thighs would not allow me to do the things I do. They wouldn’t allow me to squat 75kg or keep up with rowers inches taller than me. If I had a thigh gap, I might look daintier, but I wouldn’t be as fast. The stretchmarks on my thighs are testament to how quickly I got stronger. The cellulite serves me no purpose, but it does me no harm.
The gap between my legs has been filled with strength, beauty, happiness, health and love. And those things mean more to me than an inch or two of empty space.
I’m crying, thanks. Seriously, thank you for your strength.
Hemp is a Sensible, Sustainable, Highly-Industrializable Plant
We should utilize it. Hemp could solve many problems.
END PROHIBITION. It is NOT just about smoking.
And you forgot a big one: it is excellent at trapping carbon! Plants pull the carbon dioxide out of the air, turn the carbons into other compounds and release the oxygen, thus cooling the planet.
never not reblog
And then there’s good ol’ America
This actually makes me so angry. The truth is right here and people see it and brush it aside. We really could make things better. But no, America apparently wants to suck forever.
Just a reminder to women that cellulite isn’t this evil thing that only ‘fat’ people have. Most women, including well known celebrities have cellulite. The term cellulite was started in the 1960’s in a Vogue magazine. Its nothing more than the body storing fat, which practically every person has to some degree. Don’t be ashamed of something that’s normal!
Thank you for this post.
It was recently found that 98% of women have cellulite…which is a little higher than the percentage of women who develop breasts.
Cellulite is more common than breasts—so stop acting like it’s not natural.
Also why is it mainly important that women have cellulite? Why aren’t guy celebrities being pointed out this way???
^because men basically only get cellulite if there is something atypical in their chromosomes (so very very rarely) while 90-98% of women have it. and then there is the whole body-negative media thing that makes women feel insecure about having cellulite. so this post is to celebrate women’s bodies and hopefully release them from a few decades of body-shaming stigma. and if you are a man with cellulite the message can still be applied to you: do not be ashamed of your body
OKAY, I’M REALLY PISSED OFF
DID YOU ALL KNOW THAT GIRLS BODIES ARE SUPPOSED TO STORE MORE FAT THE BOYS BODIES?
AND YET, IT’S MORE ACCEPTABLE FOR A BOY TO ‘BE BIG’ THEN IT IS FOR A GIRL TO ‘BE FAT’
WE ARE STIGMATIZED FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY BIOLOGICAL
I don’t know what this is but I love it
this show is actually hilarious.
