Personally I don't like Weight-ism of any kind, but having said that... I guess I don't read that particular quote as insulting? It seems pretty positive to me.

I guess I'm just not reading "you don't know where to put your hands" as equaling "useless" in that statement. It's not like it says "there's no reason to wear them" or "what's the point?" it's just one specific feature... *shrug*

I think the world should stop focusing on people's weight, size and shape as their only redeeming quality. Stop judging each other for being curvy, thin, big, small, fat, skinny and everything inbetween. I'd personally love to see a human being judged on their character, personality, morals and opinions vs their measurements.

But I'm not a real woman!

And you're skinny, Jess! How are you not?!

I love jeans with pockets. I think without them they look weird and like stretch pants!

It also annoys me how this is called reverse weightism. It's weightism. Just like being racist includes hating white people. Being all up on your high horse because you are curvy and not skinny is really irritating.

Plus you can be curvy and skinny. Or not curvy and bigger.


And I HATE POCKETLESS PANTS. Or little pockets. Or fake pockets that are just meant to look like pockets but arent really there. Those are the worst

I do think we need to shift our focus on being healthy compared to looking a certain way. My good weight range is around 145 to 155. Anything less and I look sickly. Other women look great weighing 120 lbs. It's all relative.

What I do like about these messages is that it points out how crazy our ideal figure is. 50 years ago, having curves was fine, today girls and women starve themselves until death to look beautiful.

Is it okay to tease girls for not having curves? Absolutely not. But I think more often than not are girls humiliated and teased for being big than being thin. That is my own personal observation, though.

I do, however, like campaigns like the Dove campaign better than these pics, just because they include a whole variety of body types with the message that you should love your BODY. Not just your curves or tiny waist etc.

I find it hurtful...but then, I'm fairly sensitive like that. I have very little chest/hips/butt, and it's frustrating to be told that I'm not "feminine" because of it. I'm already self-conscious that I'm built like a 13 year old boy, and I'm reminded of it every time I try to shop for pants.

I agree, any sort of weightism is bad and all of us, heavy, thin, curvy, straight, should REALLY learn to love the body we have. (not like I ever see that happening, but wouldn't it be awesome?)

All that being said, I want to be the trapazoidy shape from Old Navy! ROFL! I'd get some attention then wouldn't I? That commercial makes my 12 year old son chuckle every time he sees it! hahahaha

Agreed... that drives me crazy.


Also yes, I think tiny pockets and fake pockets are worse than no pockets at all. WHY??
