All women — regardless if they have curves, no curves, long hair, short hair, or were born with vaginas or not — are real women. However, in the spirit of misplaced and misguided "body positivity," some people only refer to "real women" as those who have curves. What gives?
Body positivity blogger and author Megan Jayne Crabbe of @bodyposipanda sought out to disprove the term once and for all.
While Lee's post received plenty of love on her page, when Crabbe reposted it on hers, she was criticized.
One commenter explained that they were "exhausted" by the comparison shots of "normative model bodies being presented as politically powerful." Other commenters said the post was triggering, and that it's yet another post making a big deal of how a thin, white woman sees her body.
The post was also criticized for representing the opinion of a body that's already revered in society, insisting that her opinion, while valid, is misplaced in the body-positive community as it's coming from someone who isn't a part of a marginalized community.
