My ex always enjoyed telling me that my hips are way too big in proportion to the rest of me. Yes, I do have broad hips. Is it because I’m fat? No. It’s my bone structure. Yes, I know. I’m not a twig. I’m at a normal weight, if you ask me. I don’t want to lose weight. I am content with my body. And to everyone who says I should lose weight: NO. LEAVE ME ALONE.
The only reason I am a size US 12 is because of my hips. No smaller sizes can get past them. And being a 12 is not bad, either. I’m healthy. Though I’ll admit i’ve got a really strong inclination towards sweets… But hey, I like my body. That’s what matters.
Society has deemed that even if you are thin and pretty, that’s still not good enough. Now we have both MEN AND WOMEN starving themselves, purging, and wasting away to nothing because, according to the world, whatever you do isn’t good enough. Especially in the United States. Isn’t it wonderful?
But now to conclude my rant; yes, I’ve got a good set of child-bearing hips. No, that does not make me fat or unhealthy. I’m not changing something that I can’t control, and if you don’t like it, then just shut up and leave me alone about it.
