"A word on "Curves" 1 (n): All bodies have curves. Outside of elbows, I have yet to see a body built of right angles. I get "Real Women Have Curves" is, like empowerment training wheels and stuff, but the way to self-esteem and collective empowerment is NOT thru responding to hate with re-branded hate. To rob a body of it’s ‘real-ness’ or ‘woman-ness’ based on small size is just as shitty as making big size a source of spite and invisibility. Shaming is not sexy, no matter what the size packaging."
