Since when did having curves somehow make me a porn star? This article from Harpers Bazaar gave me a serious double take. Combined with a recent case where a bra advert for television featuring a curvy model was pulled off-air because it was deemed too sexy I think the obsession with judging peoples bodies and shapes has just gone too far.
I’m a curvy chick. I can’t hide it, and despite the fact that certain people would have me believe it’s my duty to starve myself to emaciation, you know what, I just don’t buy it. I’m big. To try and be small is very unhealthy for me.
I really resent the implication that I’m therefore some sort of sex object just because I choose to have curves. As a woman with large breasts I have lived much of my life with the assumption that because I have them, I must therefore be available to any man who wants to slobber all over them. It’s annoying that mainstream media keeps perpetuating the same idea with thoughtless articles like this one that makes it seem ok to categorise women as sex objects based on the fact that they have curves.
Ok, rant over.
