I just saw one of the dumbest skinny shaming posts ever on FB. It says it is a fact that girls with thigh gaps have a looser vagina. So girls without a thigh gap should be happy because their vaginas are tight. Like really? It's almost laughable at how pathetic that is.

It’s so pathetic, you don’t even need to say its pathetic.

It’s more so sad because this person is using the allure of sex as a form of confidence. Women… we do it to ourselves, really.

I don’t know if you can say we “do it to ourselves” when we’re so deeply saturated by dangerous, impossible beauty standards to the point that women aren’t even encouraged to find out who they are, only who they should present themselves to be. 

It’s good to take responsibility in a place where we are not helping each other. There is this constant war between women of different body shapes and sizes. In general, men are not so bothered about looks (although they have preferences). However, women gain confidence from putting down other women. It’s truth. You say ”Women aren’t even encouraged”… who will encourage us? US! Not guys, but WE have to encourage each other. Using your genitals to belittle one another.. that’s a new level of pathethicness. Your VAGINA. And if it’s not our vagina, its our waist-to-hip ratio, the width of our hips to determine fertility or thigh gaps, and so on. We really need to discuss the body war and that includes honestly speaking about the ways we pick specific features to body shame each other.

Even if we are saturated by ‘dangerous’ body standards, it doesn’t give us the right to perpetuate that which we are against - which is body shaming. Body constitutes of our different parts.

Okayyy but in a society where we are practically force fed female cattiness can you really sit there and say “oh we do it to ourselves”? We were taught to do what do. We were taught by tv, magazines, books, movies and our own real life role models to compare ourselves to others. I don’t remember saying that behavior is okay or that anyone has a right to do that, just saying that you’re putting a lot of blame a symptom instead of the root issue. 
Maybe consider the idea that many of us were taught to “do it to ourselves”?

i find it interesting that when it comes to liking girls I’m just like GIRLS ALL GIRLS YES PERFECT GIRLS but with boys i’m like you must fit criteria 1-9 but 9 is optional only if you completely fill criteria 10-13 with a non-optional essay on 21st century sexism due by 5am
