that I never did because I was too afraid I’d get too much shit for it.
That “everyone is beautiful” crap? No. Everyone is not beautiful. It seems to be targeted towards weight, specifically overweight people. Funny, I’ve never seen anything targeted towards anorexic, overly skinny people saying that “everyone is beautiful!” Give me a fucking break. Overweightness IS NOT BEAUTIFUL. Nor is it healthful! It’s a sign you eat too goddamn much and are too lazy to do anything about it.
So no, I see good health and being in good fitness as beautiful.
I guess you could also make the argument “what is beautiful” and say that it’s somewhat of a mental thing - mental attractiveness. But that’s not what I’ve seen this quote be targeted towards. Different heights, different body shapes, et cetera, sure. But that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about your standard advertisement, advertising the “everyone is beautiful” concept… and all I can think of is a whale of a person who is too lazy to get off their ass and get into better shape. This is important! For fucks sake, you are TEACHING CHILDREN THAT IT IS OKAY TO BE OVERWEIGHT. IT ISN’T. It IS important to teach children to stay fit and not overeat!
I wonder if this PSA exists in other countries besides the USA.
