Hello there, this is just going to be a quick blog, just to raise awareness of what’s going on on Twitter currently. There’s this man @MrKennethTong, and after you’re finished reading this, I’d like you all to click here to hopefully get him taken off of Twitter. Why? Because he is a danger to people’s lives.
Now you may be sitting there thinking “Oh, what’s he threatened to do?” “How dangerous is he?” Well, this man isn’t that kind of threat. Y’see he’s promoting ‘Managed Anorexia’ he says that nothing tastes as good as skinny feels, and that if you want to be successful, you’ve gotta be a size zero.
A lot of celebs have got on board about this and they’re all raising awareness too, so many people on Twitter are tweeting about how size doesn’t matter and how you don’t have to be size zero, and it’s lovely to see so many people supporting the same thing in the same place. It was one of those moments where my time-line made me proud to follow everyone that I do follow.
My opinion on the size debate is this; People are far too ignorant to actually give a damn about your appearance, the only reason that they could make a comment and mean it, would be for it to be a flaw they see in themselves and for them to then be projecting that on to you.
I think that the society that we live in today has ended up in the state that it’s in because we care too much about what people think of us. So, what do I think of you? I think that you’re beautiful. “You’ve never seen me though.” I don’t need to see you to tell you that you’re beautiful. I can tell you right now that there’s someone that you mean the world to, and they think you’re the most beautiful thing on this planet. You’re alive that in itself is beautiful.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m really self concious about parts of my body, but at the end of the day you only have one body so you may as well start to like it.
The media, in my opinion is the biggest bully in this world. It teaches girls that if they leave the house looking anything but perfect then there will be people judging them, it teaches them that if you’re not a certain size then you’re not ‘normal’. But tell me one thing, how can normality exist in a world along with originality? It can’t. You are who you are, and you should be proud of that person; I’m proud of that person.
Eating disorders aren’t there to be managed, they’re there to be beaten. They are mental disorders, not physical. They are something that should never be promoted or glamorised. They aren’t the way to go. If you really feel like you need to lose weight, see a doctor and do it in a healthy manner; Everyone’s body is different, and we all need more and less of different things, so consult your doctor and see what is best for you. But just remember; The people that love you, love you for who you are not for the size label on your clothes.
Also; I’d just like to mention this blog. It was started by a good friend of mine, and it’s fast becoming a favourite read of mine. According to Aneléne it was my blog that inspired her to be brave enough to ‘go public’ with her life; I’m completely and utterly flattered. So, please check this out and give the lady herself a follow over on Twitter; @am_mf.
Much love and many thanks for reading.
