O que é beleza pra você?

Na sociedade moderna criou-se o conceito de que beleza pode ser enclausurada dentro de um padrão construído, e somente aqueles que se encaixam nas normas pré estabelecidas podem dizer ao mundo que são belos.

Em cada época da história humana houve um padrão de beleza, na era vitoriana, por exemplo, as gordas mandavam na p*** toda, porque gordura significava fartura de alimentos, riqueza, e magreza remetia a trabalho braçal e pobreza, ou seja, aquilo que é considerado bonito é uma construção social.

Atualmente ser gorda é enfrentar essa construção, é ser resistente as pessoas e suas “críticas construtivas” disfarçadas de preconceito te empurrando para o padrão. Ser gorda com orgulho é não querer pertencer a uma caixa, é mostrar pro mundo que beleza é diversa, e que essa ladainha de que a beleza é única tem que acabar.

Para exemplificar e celebrar uma beleza plural, eis que lhes apresento divas plus size que irão redefinir o seu conceito de beleza:

I want to share a story with you. One that was probably the most eye opening moment in my relationship with myself and with my love @themattpowers. I've had cellulite since I was very young. And there is particularly this one big mammajamma on the side of my right thigh that is deep and to me the most noticeable imperfection on my body that I've had to stare at for two decades. It drove me nuts and frankly embarrassed me. I felt like it was so gigantic you could see through my clothes and from a mile away, never stood facing that side in pics, etc.etc. Then one day, years into my relationship with my hubby Matt, he says "babe how'd you get that big bruise on your leg?" HUH? I didn't think I had run into anything. I spun around getting to look at my leg from all angles and then I realized what he saw. My deep, round, cellulite pocket. "Babe, that's not a bruise." "Oh, looked like it" "Wait, you've never seen this before on my leg?" "Nope." IM SORRY BUT WHAT? The one thing I thought was the gnarliest, most obvious, shameful flaw was the least obvious, non important, very far off the radar thing that he saw when he looked at me. Damn. I realized that we beat ourselves up over things that are 1)a part of us 2)normal and beautiful 3)not noticeable to anyone else. So I vowed to let go of my hangups then and there and pay no mind to these things that don't define who I am as a person anyway. I hope this story helps you in some way too, to unnotice the unimportant. It's by far one of my favorite, body freeing moments. Bless you @themattpowers for seeing a bruise. 😉❤️ #IMNOANGEL for @lanebryant by @cassblackbird #lovetheskinyourein
