There is a great interwebz myth going around that Strong women’s body types is the new something or other. Look, I’m not going to begrudge someone the chance to make some cute T-shirts. But the idea that strong looking women is new is just wrong and I’m getting a bit weary of the amounts of bathroom stall shots we see each day trying to prove the point that muscles are ok (with pouts. Why do the bathroom shots always include pouts?)
Kathrine Brumbach was born in 1884…LONG before the skinny ideal came into play. She set the tone for strong women and even did it without a bathroom shot.
The point is, looking like a Strong woman has always been in. If you or someone you know bought into the old “skinny” is good or even the now popular “strong looking with diet and self-photo” issues then chances are you’ll go ahead and follow the next cutsie trend that will emerge.
But Strong? Strong isn’t new.
Every step a fucking adventure.
