Real women have curves. Or do they?

By Just Ajda - 6.6.18

Najprej bi rada razčistila eno - ja, suha sem in ne, ne vem, kako je imeti kak kilogram (pre)več. Ta objava NI namenjena temu, da bi se kdorkoli počutil slabo zaradi svoje teže/videza, namenjena je kot opozorilo na problematiko, ki se je marsikdo ne zaveda!
Let's first make something clear - yes, I am skinny and no, I don't how it's like to have a kg too much. This post ISN'T here for making people feel bad about their weigth/look, but it is here to draw attention to something that's happening all around us but most people don't take notice.

Danes se bom dotaknila malo bolj občutljive teme - body shaming-a (a imamo v slovenščini sploh ustrezen prevod?). Mnogo ljudi se namreč ne zaveda, da gre ta zadeva v obe smeri in da s(m)o tudi suhi ljudje podvrženi zasramovanja in bolečih besed na račun svoje teže. O čem govorim? Beri naprej.
Today I am going to talk about one a bit sensitive topic - body shaming. A lot people actually don't realize that it can go in two ways and that also skinny people can be body shamed too. What am I talking about? Keep on reading!

Ljudje mislijo, da je suhim ljudem dovoljeno reči vse. A si ogledamo par primerov besed, ki zabolijo in pustijo pečat?
Kako si pa ti suha!
A ti sploh kaj ješ?
Daj pojej kak sendvič.
Ej, tebe so pa res same kosti!
Kaj tebe doma nič ne hranijo?
Seveda verjamem, da marsikdo to izreče v šali in nima slabih namenov, pa vendar niti pomisli ne, da je tudi to na nek način body shaming. Da ne omenjam tega, da se ljudem zdi čisto normalno se me dotikat in ugotavljat, kako suha dejansko sem, koliko reber mi lahko preštejejo in podobno. A je to ok?
People think that just because someone is skinny, they can tell them everything. Here are some examples that do hurt us and leave an imprit in our comfidence.
Oh, my, you are soooo skinny!
Do you even eat anything?
Go on and eat a sandwich.
Wow, you are only skin and bones!
Don't they feed you at home?
Of course, a majority of these are said in a humourous mannes and I know noone even realizes that this is a form of body shaming too. not to mention those that think touching me is okay to figure out how skinny I actually am and how many ribs can they count. Is that okay to you?

Meni je vseeno koliko kilogramov ima kdo, kakšno konfekcijsko številko nosi in kakšne obline ima. Me pa moti, da marsikatero podjetje v zadnjem času na račun slogana "Real women have curves." dela cele kampanje in služi na račun tega. Ma, kakšen slogan sploh je to??? A potem jaz, brez oblin, za njih nisem "PRAVA ŽENSKA"? A sem kaj manj vredna, ker komaj napolnim najmanjše številke oblačil? Jaz mislim, da ne! Kaj pa praviš ti?
I really don't care how much anyone weights, which size do they wear and how curvy are they. But I am bothered by companies using the phrase "Real women have curves." to make campaines and even money. What kind of slogan is that? Does that mean that I, without curves am not a "REAL WOMAN"? Am I less worthy for having a smaller clothing size? I don't think so! And you?

Draga podjetja, takšna in drugačna, nehajmo ločevat žensk po kilogramih! Prave ženske imajo obline ali pa tudi ne. Prava ženska je vsaka izmed nas in prav je, da se prav vsaka dobro počuti v svoji koži, pa če je tvoja konfekcijska številka XS ali pa XXL. Samozavest je tista, ki šteje! Spoštovala in zagotovo največ kupila bom pri znamki, ki bo naredila kampanjo: VSE SMO LEPE! in k sodelovanju povabila ženske vseh oblik, velikosti in starosti. Cenim premik stran od samo manekenk, da ne bo pomote!
Dear companies, let's stop dividing women by weight! Real women have curves or they don't. Each and every one of us is a real women and it is only right we all feel good in our skin, no matter if your clothing size iz XS or XXL. Confidence is what counts! I will respect and try to buy as much as I can from the brand that'll make a campain: "WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL!" and where women of all sizes, heights and age will collaborate. I do appreciate a step toward normal people and away from all model campaings!

Za konec pa še sporočilo vsem mojim "sestram po kilogramih":
Nič ni narobe, če si suha! Imej rada svoje telo, če se ne moreš zrediti, je že prav tako! Lepa si takšna kot si in tudi ti si lahko zapeljiva, samozavestna in totalno seksi! Samo rada se imej in ne pusti drugim, da ti narekujejo tvoje mnenje o tebi!
And in the end, my message to all my ""sisters-by-weight":
It is nothing wrong in being skinny! Love your body and if you cannot put on weight, this is the way it's supposed to be. You are pretty just the way you are and you can be attractive, confident and sexy too! Love yourself and don't let others dictate you how to feel in your skin!

  1. super objava ! :)
    Meni gre to tud na živce.. že celo življenje mi gnjavijo z "joj kak si ti suha, kolk maš sploh kil" ipd...pa me je mogoče mičkeno več ko tebe skupaj, ampak prideš do problema, ko npr. delam v trgovini s spodnjim perilom, pa mi veliko stvari ni prav, tudi hlačk ni XS in velikokrat pride do problema, da je katera res zelo suha, pa ima kar nekaj svojih prsi, ampak ji je vsak modrc pri obsegu prevelik (ne štekam te politike, da se pri malem obsegu delajo samo majhne košarice ipd..) :)

  2. Yup, vse smo že slišal. Od teh tvojih naštetih do "si tako suha, da se boš kar prelomila" do že kar groznih "kako pa ti misliš met otroke" plus razno dvigovanje za ugibanje teže, merjenje nadlahti in pasu - folk si res ogromno dovoli, če si suh. Jaz sem celo življenje zelo suha + majhna in se pač ne znam zredit. Zdaj zadnje časa zaradi stresa še dodatno hujšam, da sem že na strahotno nizki številki in blebetanje o tem kakšna sem in če kaj sploh jem, ravno ni v pomoč. Sem se začela kar izogibat ljudem, da mi je lažje. Te kampanije o oblinah tudi mene zelo žalostijo, ker se res ustvarja z njimi nek vtis, da če imaš A košarico in ozke boke, si manj vreden. Sploh Dove kampanije izpadejo zelo izključevalno, ker imajo samo take s več kilami.
