How Does Plastic Surgery Fit Into The Body Positivity Movement?
After I got my boob job I was called a “fake feminist” and accused of not supporting body positivity. SO I wanted to take a sec to define what body positivity is all about. 🙃
Women (& all genders, but especially women) are conditioned to aspire to unrealistic levels of perfection and beauty. As young girls, we’re brainwashed to believe that flawless = beautiful, so we learn to beautify ourselves so we can look as immaculate as possible. The kicker is that perfection & beauty alone is not enough; we’re ALSO expected to be “natural” & “effortless”… as if TRYING to be beautiful somehow negates our beauty. The second someone “catches” us putting in a little effort (w/ Spanx, push-up bras, hair extensions, Botox, plastic surgery, whatevs), we’re considered CHEATERS. And cheating isn’t “pretty.” That’s why so many women lie about how long it really takes them to get ready, or their natural hair color, or their supposed “broken nose” that could only be fixed by changing the entire aesthetic.
The ENTIRE POINT of body positivity is to celebrate ALL bodies (that includes bodies that are fat, disabled, amputated, SURGICALLY ENHANCED… u name it). Part of calling yourself “body positive” means that you love & accept ALL bodies (including your own!) & NEVER diminish or shame someone’s beauty simply bc they chose to surgically enhance it. The goal is SELF-LOVE PPL. Everyone, including YOU, deserves to love their appearance. It literally does not matter whether or not you’ve made any physical alterations. WHO THE FUCK CARES.
So ya, I have fake tits, but I’m not a fake feminist. Body positivity is something I work on daily. The irony is that between my breast reduction, weight gain and loss, & my boob job… I’ve pretty much had every size boob u can imagine (starting from when I awkwardly started puberty at the age of SEVEN 😳). I get that this will sound funny to some ppl, but whatever:
Btw, don’t worry about the mean comments; they don’t phase me bc my boob job was NEVER about receiving outside validation. What I choose to do with my body is up to me & will never be dictated by anyone other than my fucking self. IS THE SAME TRUE FOR U? If you’re 75 years old & want your tits lifted, fucking DO U, FLEX YOUR FEMALE, & LOVE URSELF!!!!! 👵🏻👵🏼👵🏽👵🏾👵🏿
