I was always taught
that being small was ideal.
That skinny meant pretty,
that fragile meant dainty,
that shrinking my waist
was a bigger asset to me
than expanding my mind.
But I’m learning to love
the way my own body
takes up just the right
amount of space.
I’m learning that my thighs
will always touch
like awkward first kisses;
that my hips may never be smaller
than their current thirty-four inches;
that my hands may not be childlike,
but these “man-hands” I have
can hold so much love
that I’m finally learning to accept.
I’m finding out that
the curvature of my back
meets my softly angular shoulders
in such a way that
when I walk with swaying hips
and my too-small head held high,
I own that street like a queen;
and the boys I see watching
out of the corner of my eyes
can’t help but stare at my
red-painted, uneven lips
and wonder why on earth
this imperfect girl, made of
stretch marks and jiggling thighs
and tiny wrists and big feet,
why this imperfect girl
attracts them light a moth to a flame.
But I know that I’m made of fire
that burns from the core of my soul;
I’ll light up the world around me
with my blooming mind
and wide, imperfect smile.
So here’s a message to the world:
I refuse to shrink.
I’m done trying to be small.
I’m going to love this body
because it’s the only one I’ve got.
Strong is my new skinny
and I’m here to take you head-on.

I HATE THIS STUPID MOVIE THE ONLY GOOD PART IS STANLEY TUCCI

AND PENN BADGLEY’S FACE

THAT’S IT.

Kk I can defintely see your point Phoebe but this is kind of mocking the whole “slut-shaming” thing… Like, who gives a damn if she slept with people or not? And these kids are literally BULLYING her for something that has absolutely nothing to do with them or their lives! So she’s not upset that they believed her. That was kind of the point. What she’s upset about is the fact that there are people standing there with signs not only asking that she be expelled from school, but also demeaning her as a human being for something that’s totally natural. And I don’t know about you, but I think there’s something seriously wrong with that…
