Thanks for the rant! At 5'5" I've never worn anything but sizes 0 and 2, and I hate when people act like that makes me less of a woman. I don't think that makes me better than anyone, in fact, I have always had a lot of body issues. Just because I'm small doesn't mean attacks on something I can't change don't hurt me.

:) I’m glad you enjoyed it. Being attacked for your size, no matter how big or small, can hurt and is totally unecessary. As long as the person is healthy (ie: not over eating, starving, or purging) then their size shouldn’t matter. People make a lot of assumptions about your eating habits based on your size, just because you’re big doesn’t mean all you do is stuff your face, and just because you’re small doesn’t mean you’re anorexic.

Little rant here, be warned:
I hate it when people attack other peoples’ body sizes. Period. In either direction. I hate it when girls say that a size 8, 10, 12, 16 isn’t beautiful, or good enough-but I don’t like this reverse hate either. I’m a size zero/double zero in bottoms, and small/extra small in tops. Is it because I’m anorexic? No, I’m 5’2 and at a healthy weight this is just the size I happen to be at.
Everyone’s body is different, some people are perfectly healthy, fit and beautiful (with a line down their stomach and the whole shebang) but due to their body types will never be a 0 (a few of my friends are like this). Does that mean there’s something wrong with them? Nope, not at all.
But just because I am a size zero doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with me either. Just love your own body, and stop concerning yourself with others. Can we just support each other instead of knocking each other down?
