Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +

How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?

I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.

ive also noticed that people always focus on one particular line of this song which apparently makes it “skinny shaming”

but nobody ever acknowledges the following lines?

the main theme of the song is giving love to larger women because larger women are so commonly shamed for their bodies, ignored by the media and generally given less love and acceptance than thinner women, but the song in its entirety is a message that all women are beautiful. People are failing to acknowledge that

NO!!! Fuck you and your shit!

So many fat bitches have called me things like twiggy, anorexic, twelve year old boy, flat chest, itty bitty titty committee, fake, not a real woman, slut, bony pass. They told me no man would love me! Bitch, I am healthy, I have the right to love myself. But no, when I told people that I was struggling from that bullying, they laughed and said they were right!

Fuck you fatties, fuck you! You have everything and skinny girls have NOTHING!!!

This song does NOT shame skinny girls at all

the song says

"Im bringing booty back tell all those skinny bitches that no I’m just playing

You guys don’t understand the song is talking about everyone being beautiful and perfect just how they are. So if you’re skinny, don’t fucking complain that this song is shaming you because it is not

everyone is beautiful okay?

smaller girls shouldn’t tell bigger girls that they are big

and

bigger girls shouldn’t tell smaller girls that they are small

everyone should stop taking sides

if you are skinny, take both sides

if you are bigger, take both sides

don’t complain because you’re getting everything wrong

you’re not understanding what we’re trying to say

I’m sorry, but I’m not defending fat bitches after they bullied me for years.
"But not all da fat gurlz bully!!!1!!"

Before you say that, consider that no ‘nice’ fat girls called them out.

This song is bullshit.

You want to make something body positive then do it.

If you demean anyone even if “they don’t get hurt as much,” you are an asshole.

Plus size women are not the only ones impacted by the media. I was suffering from an ed for years, and I weigh 110 lbs.

A song is not positive if it tells people they wont be liked by the opposite if they aren’t a certain size.

I really wish people would realize this. It’s not okay to shame anyone, and this song is not okay

VIVA LA PLUTO MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!

DO YOU SEE THIS? DO YOU? ALL OF YOU WHO HAD WRITTEN OFF PLUTO, WHO HAD CROSSED IT OFF YOUR PLANET LIST? REMEMBER HOW IT WAS ‘TOO SMALL” TO BE A PLANET? HOW NASA, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMICAL UNION REMOVED ITS PLANETARY STATUS AND  CHANGED ITS NAME TO 134340? HOW EVERYONE THEN CONSIDERED THERE TO BE EIGHT PLANETS, NOT NINE?

BUT SOME OF US REMAINED LOYAL TO PLUTO. IT WAS NEVER FORGOTTEN. AND NOW HERE WE ARE, AND JUSTICE IS UPON US AFTER 8 YEARS.

BECAUSE GUESS WHAT? PLUTO HAS AT LEAST FIVE MOONS, A PRETTY BIG NUMBER FOR A ”DWARF-PLANET”, HUH? ESPECIALLY WHEN EARTH, QUITE BIGGER THAN PLUTO AND AN OFFICIAL PLANET ONLY HAS ONE. AND GUESS WHAT ELSE? ERIS, THE PLANET WHICH EVERYONE THOUGHT TO BE BIGGER THAN PLUTO, MAY NOT BE BIGGER AFTER ALL. AND THE BEST PART IS THAT PLUTO HAS AN ATMOSHPERE. THAT’S RIGHT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, A SUPPOSEDLY NON-PLANET HAS AN ATMOSPHERE. AGAIN, ISN’T THAT IMPRESSIVE?

SO LOOK AT THIS. NEW FINDINGS, AND A NEW AGE FOR PLUTO. AN AGE OF RECOGNITION AND APPRECIATION. AND ALLOW ME TO CLOSE THIS -somewhat aggressive-PRESENTATION OF OPINION WITH THE MOTTO OF THE PLUTO APOLOGISTS: VIVA LA PLUTO!

Here we have a strong member of the Pluto fandom.

Pluto Isn’t a planet because it crosses orbits with multiple other planets, not because it’s too small.

Also to be classified as a planet it has to clear the space around it.
Earth is larger, but it doesn’t have a million moons because it cleared the space with its gravitational force (that is pre impact that caused the moon)
Pluto doesn’t have the proper size to clear its path.
Thus Pluto doesn’t equal a planet

Make a new version of my Betta ‘no bowls’ flier to post around the dorms now that I have illustrator to work with but so far I hate the colors 8D Still trying

I need to start making some, every year my colleges science club hands out bettas in beakers. I want to hand them out right next to them

If you know me, then you know I’m an extreme worrier

With an anxiety problem for kicks.
I worry about worrying, but for the first time in a very long time I feel very stress free.
The last two years I’ve been rushing to finish my degree. Managed to graduate debt free, and held a job.
Those are all the things I guess normal people would be content with, but I was miserable the entire time.
I over worked myself, and found the things I should be enjoying were passing away.
So I vowed to myself that I would do things that made me happy.
Some how that turned into transferring schools, taking on $6500 in loans, and quitting my job.
The weirdest thing is that I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time.
I come to realize that I was completely obsessed with a false idea of success that I was bound to fail at.
I guess I’m really lucky to get the chance to start over.

This is a question that comes up regularly, people ask me about how people of different faiths can get married or be in a relationship. More importantly if someone as an atheist can be in a relationship with a believer.

Well, my opinion has been and will be scrutinized but I can only look at it…

My boyfriend is a theist, and this statement fits perfectly. We don’t always agree, but it’s wonderful to know someone cares so much about you that they don’t need to change you. It actually strengthens our relationship.

I also think that it is very important to create relationships with people who aren’t exactly like you. It broadens your outlook, and helps reduce ignorance and prejudices.

I would hope that all people would not confine themselves to relationships with people just like them. You never know, the people you think you could never like or be like, could be the people you need the most.

Okay truth time now:

I was SO HAPPY with the VMAs this year for just a few reasons. Last year, the big craze was over Miley Cyrus twerking and her weird obsession with big butts while she barely has her own.

This year, Beyonce rocked the stage with her curves singing about loving yourself for…

Okay we need to have a talk.

Why, WHY IN THE WORLD would you be okay with body shaming in any form?
If you did not like being shamed for your body why would you shame someone back?

It’s not okay.
It’s not justified.

No woman, not a single one has ever been free from body issues. Skinny or thick we have all been held to body images that aren’t attainable.
It makes me sick when people tell women to:
"go to the gym"
Not wear certain clothes because of their size
Or tell them not to eat.
It also makes me sick when people tell skinny girls that:
"men don’t like skinny girls they want real women"
Skinny girls are fake plastic dolls
That they are all anorexic
Or they need to eat a cheeseburger.

All of these things have been said to me and I WAS ANOREXIC.

Your post is just plain disrespectful. Not just to your sisters but you’re self.

We don’t need to be dividing ourselves in skinny bitches and thick chics. That doesn’t help anything.

We have all stuggled. We have all felt pain, who are you to say who has felt it the most.

I’m disappointed. I think you should take a long hard look at yourself.

Is it really okay to shame others in the name of your own well being.

If you don’t know then the answer is no

Question for feminists: is it wrong for women to want to be physically attractive to men?

No.
There is nothing wrong in trying to achieve what you believe to be personal beauty in order to attract another.
What’s wrong is believing you have to look, act, or think a certain way to impress someone. You shouldn’t have to change to impress someone, and how you dress definitely shouldn’t be only because you think someone male or female prefers it.
I buy the skimpiest lingere I can find because I know my boyfriend likes it and I like to treat him.
That being said, I don’t always wear it because my world doesn’t always revolve around him and his needs. I wear what I’m comfortable with when I’m confortable and I hope all people can do that.

Mario Balotelli is an Italian footballer who may soon become a Liverpool player. He has long been one of my favorite players, and I can’t help but think that the way his reputation in Europe is shaped by race. (Balotelli has been the victim of horrific racist chants throughout his career, but I also think institutional racism shapes media coverage and popular opinion, as pointed out here and elsewhere.)
Balotelli is certainly an unusual footballer: Once, while signing an autograph for a child, Balotelli learned the kid was being bullied, and then drove across town to confront the bully and discuss the matter with the school principal. And he is famed for his generosity, although this is often portrayed popularly as an inability to handle his money well.
He also has a reputation for volatility and immaturity, and is often criticized for getting in fights with teammates. He once threw a dart at a younger player. You hear a lot that Balotelli is crazy and/or lazy. You hear that he stays out late.
Now, I think some of Balotelli’s professional behavior has been poor, and I’m not here to defend it. But look at the way we treat white players:
Liverpool’s Robbie Fowler once PRETENDED TO SNORT THE WHITE POWDER OF THE TOUCH LINE after scoring a goal, in reference to his cocaine use.
Craig Bellamy drunkenly beat a teammate with a golf club. 
Peter Beagrie once drunkenly stole someone’s motorbike and drove it through a hotel’s plate glass window. 
Point being, in all the cases above (and many, many, many more) the offenses were seen as youthful indiscretions, or as hilarious examples of Boys being Boys.
Fowler is now a coach; Beagrie is now a well-respected commentator; and Bellamy is still playing. You rarely hear about his on- and off-field indiscretions, even though they’re probably more numerous than Balotelli’s. Meanwhile, Balotelli makes the news (and gets fined $200,000) for eating curry.
Those of you who follow football will begin to hear a lot about Balotelli if he returns to play in England. You will hear about how he cried after being substituted (although you might not hear that he cried because he had to sit on the bench while racist chants rang through the stadium). You will hear about how he is “wild” and “unpredictable” and “lazy.” 
But watch him play. Watch how good and smart and creative he can be, how he can find paths to goal that make people call him lazy (they called Messi lazy, too, remember) when really he is just waiting, like the chess master who sees four moves ahead. Watch him off the ball, moving to reshape the opposition’s defense.
And then watch him score, turn around unsmiling, and lift his shirt to ask the immense and complicated question.
