Enough. Fucking enough. This whole “athletic build” bullshit that is going after women, giving them the “okay” that being athletic is the new sexy, strong, whatever. Enough.

Buy into this and you are the new generation of buying into the crack model look. SRSLY. Are we so incredibly stupid that we don’t understand that the above pictures feed an unhealthy seeking of whatever we aren’t? Are we? Really? Really.

Stop. Are you in the gym? Are you training? Are you tweaking your food so that YOU will be the best YOU? Then post your pictures (if you must) and be happy and fulfilled.

But believe that you must do everything you can to fit into this mold and you’ve just regressed into an 8th grade wanna be. Enough. When I was a young teenager, I wanted a body like Brook Shields. SRSLY. The fact that I was only 5’6″ and curvy be damned.


…is what I wanted to be. So I was dissatisfied that I wasn’t. Tell me how women going after this…

…is different. Is it justified because these chicks work out? Bull shit. Enough!

SRSLY. Enough.

I didn’t discover curves; I only uncovered them.
