I Am Not a Real Woman?I see a lot of obese women posting pictures of their bodies, and getting endless praise for being "brave" "confident" and "a REAL woman".

I am a real woman, too. But when I post pictures of my skinny body, I get insulted and harassed.
I am a model. I go to photo shoots and get made-up, lit-up, and photo-shopped. Then I go home, and I have a real life, and real problems, and real feelings.
I love my body, but I do not promote my emaciated look as a beauty ideal. Yet, I get slammed continuously for glorifying an unhealthy standard. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people die of obesity each year, but we continue to promote obesity as "normal" "beautiful" and "real".
I don't really care what you're into or whether or not I embody it. There's no reason to be so disrespectful to others about body image, ever. Everyone should love their body, and everyone should strive for optimum health.
That is all.
