These women bother me. It’s not their size or their message. It’s not that they are in the  fashion industry or that they are quite beautiful.  It’s that societal  views that have been forced down my throat like a mouth-watering slice  of heaven via birthday cake have made me feel awkward when I encounter  women who aren’t rail thin and content with their lives. 
It’s the same  bothersome feeling that I get when I look in my own bathroom mirror  (which spans across the room) and catch a glimpse of myself that makes  me think “damn, I look good” milliseconds before I say “yea right—I  look fat.”  During these times, all one has to do is flip through the latest magazine or google ‘hot’ female celebrities and a seemingly endless list of lithe bodies, toned and turned in such a slight way that you have to question if they even have a waist..or eat..or do anything else in life other than work out at a gym with a trainer who’s goal in life is to make six-packs have six-packs.
Now…I don’t want to come off completely biased.  I think that some of those women are beyond beautiful.  I really do.  And, you know what?  If you live at the gym and have more will-power than I do, you deserve the honor of being labeled as so.  However, as Queen Latifah belted in Hairspray: 
“They say that white has might  And thin is in  Well, that’s just bull ‘Cause ladies big is back And as for black It’s beautiful! All shapes and sizes  Follow me! Who wants a twig When you can climb a whole tree?”
YOU CAN BE BEAUTIFUL EVEN IF YOU AREN’T A SIZE 2, 4, 6…8?…!!!  It’s shocking, and crazy and something that even a girl such as myself, someone not a 2, 4, 6 or 8 could be labeled as such. 
Now, back to my original post.  These women from Big Sexy bother me.  And why is it that they bother me?  Because, even in all their curves, insecure moments, times that they are gawked at and made fun of…they know who they are and love themselves regardless of some stupid societal norm.  So.  If that’s the case, and they bother me for being themselves, I will keep watching this show (which TLC better bring back since tonight was the finale) if only so one day I can bother myself and not cringe when I look in the mirror and see myself only to think: “damn, I look good.”
