Loey, respect for your confidence and congrats on your ‘big’ success. And we really mean that. No ifs ands or giant butts about it.
Okay that was the last one.
However, we’re a little confused by this whole thing. You’re basically saying that the way to empower “fat girls” (as you call them) who already feel self conscious about their bodies… is to make sure that everyone else focuses on their bodies?
You’re right when you say it doesn’t matter what other people think about you. That being said, why make a 4 minute video about how to draw attention to yourself so people look at your body… so that you can then subsequently care about what those same people think?
Seems like an irony of, dare I say… massive proportions? Last one.
If who you are is really more important that what you look like – and it is – then why not challenge women to improve themselves, to grow intellectually, spiritually, even – dare I say it – to work out or get healthy?
The thing is, Loey, people love you because you’re beautiful. Sure, you’re curvy, but you’re pretty. Perfect teeth, perfect skin, expensive hair, make-up, the works. What about curvy women who aren’t as fortunate as you? Are you telling these women that being unhealthily fat is okay… so long as everything else is beautiful?In condemning superficial people, Loey, you’ve become ironically obsessed with the superficial. Self-conscious women don’t need superficial. They need a friend.Ladies, it really is what’s on the inside that counts, and no, it doesn’t matter what other people think about you. But you should challenge yourself whenever possible, whether academically, physically, spiritually, there’s always something at which you can improve. Love yourself the way you are, but love yourself enough to never stop growing, never stop learning, and never stop becoming a better you.
It’s certainly more empowering than spilling out of a two-piece.
