Finding Me

Anonymous said: could you talk a little more about your issues with the song?

I am ALLLLLL about body positivity and acceptance and girls telling each other they’re beautiful the way they are cause girl power is awesome

BUT

Basically, the whole song is shaming girls who don’t have that “boom boom” (aka curves). The music video has the singer, Meghan Trainor, and her back-up dancers (also…racism is another issue people have brought up with this video) basically mocking a girl who is thin and wrapped in cellophane.

Also the lyric, “Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that” reflects that as well.

Like, I get it. The media tells us to be thin so much it’s a nice refresher to have a song like this. But it isn’t truly a song about body acceptance unless it includes all body types and races. That might be impossible to fit into one music video but this one is DEFINITELY lacking in diversity, body type wise.

Let’s talk about another part of the lyrics: “Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size; She says boys like a little more booty to hold at night.”

So many girls have this mentality that they have to look a certain way for other people. YOU DON’T. You are you and you are wonderful and amazing just the way you are and if some boy or girl doesn’t like it, then WHO GIVES A FRICK FRACK. 

It’s a catchy, fun song but the lyrics are pretty much awful. I think maybe Meghan just didn’t really think about it??? Idk her or her story so I’m not really judging her, I just wish people thought about this stuff more. It’s important.

agreed 100%

I think the more important part does not necessarily lie in skinny shaming or far shaming or whatever, but with the fact that lyrics in this song still maintain the idea that we need to look a certain way to please men. Not ourselves.

when people defend pop stars who lipsync with “but they’re dancing! it’s impossible to dance like that and sound good!”

i’m just like

have you ever seen a musical before? no lipsynching going on there and the actors are dancing for their lives while doing like 6 part harmonies and being near pitch perfect

you either have the talent to sing live or you don’t. end of story.

i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
