Raven Symone’: The pressure of society.
Finally a celebrity who says the real reason
Submitted by iwillloveyouwhenpigsfly
I’ve always loved Raven. I liked her better when she was heavier. I keep trying to show my 4 year old sister “That’s So Raven” because she has darker skin than me (she has a different father) and all the other shows she watches feature stick-thin white girls. I want my sister to grow up without that pressure; without feeling like you should look like the people on TV. One day, she even asked my older sister, “When am I going to be your color?” She’s young; she doesn’t understand all of the natural differences yet. I struggled with self-image as I was growing up and I don’t want her to feel the same thing I did.

Please, everyone who thinks being “fat” is “ugly,” listen:
It’s NOT. Be proud of what you have, and stop thinking that “skinny girls” are beautiful. Everyone can be beautiful. The way to start is to first EMBRACE YOURSELF AS YOU ARE. Confidence is way more sexier than just being thin. I’m not putting down thin girls, I’m just defending the people who actually get put down most of the time by all the various forms of media.
There ARE people who will like you, and it won’t be “because you’re fat.” I know plenty of people who like women (and men) of all sizes because of their confidence and comfort with their appearance.
So, please. Stop worrying. Stop hating.
