Where do you feel this pressure is coming from? Society? Your parents? Your friends? Other family members? Why do you feel as if you have to be thin? Due to the immense number of people who have a very poor body image and turn to hurting themselves in some way to accomplish a better body figure, we are trying to change. This would be why people are trying to push the “real” women and men campaign, to help people with poor body image realize that it IS a bad thing to have such a bad image of yourself, and to also funnel future generations out of that path to self harm and poor body image.

YES! I love food too, but I'm also comfortable in my skin. Very comfortable and confident.
Don't let other peoples views get to you. It's your body, love it no matter what. TOO skinny, TOO fat, TOO ugly. Our society is full of idiots. People like this Josh person who think perfect is attainable. Are you healthy? Then it's all good.

Good for you! Great answer and I'm glad you changed how you saw "beautiful."
I'm sorry, did you just say if you have a bigger body as a women then you do have a poor self image and you should have a poor self image because you can't impress anyone with how you look?
bigger body is not an issue for women however being fat is definitely a problem for women. Being a man I like slim and smart girls but if a girl has a bigger body then ofcourse her every body part would be bigger and such things inspire men
Do you really think a fat woman has poor body image? I'm confused at what you are trying to say. Other peoples bodies are none of your business, though. You can like what you like, but don't impose your likes on every woman.
yes this is exactly what i am saying that a fat women has a poor body image even a fat man has a poor body image. Its common sense dear :p
You know what? That is a completely ignorant statement. It does NOT mean you have a poor body image. Shame on you for thinking that, sir.
You know what? You are just being offended and nothing can help you. But I have a suggestion that if you don't think that fat body has a poor image then go on ask this as an individual question and you will know.
MAYBE you should realize that YOU are talking to a fat woman. I don't have poor body image, why? Because I don't care what people like you have to say. Keep your skinny, I'm fabulous.
Oh i see...so that is why you got offended
well if you think being fat gives good image and you are fabulous then i am happy for you
and i am sorry if i hurt you
No, you aren't sorry. People like you are never sorry. I also don't care if you really are sorry or not. Just know your opinion is actually an ignorant opinion to have and you degrade the fat person with that sort of thinking.
This Josh guy is an idiot. Don't listen to him, anyone. How dare anyone, especially someone who has never experienced life as a woman, declare how women of any body type should or shouldn't feel or act or be.
