Unpopular Opinions ; Crop-tops

Don’t @ me, but crop-tops are for EVERYONE 🤷‍♀️

Whether you’re “skinny” or “fat”, there’s NO reason why you shouldn’t express yourself through you’re clothing.

One thing I absolutely HATE is when people say stupid and mean things like, “You’re too fat to wear that shirt!” or “Fat people shouldn’t wear skin-bearing clothes!” or “Why are you wearing a crop-top? You’re a boy!”

Okay, FIRST OF ALL, fat should never be used as a shaming or mean word, because it’s just another adjective like “skinny” or “beautiful”.

Not everyone is going to have the exact same body shape, so stop expecting that! People are born differently, so just deal with it! We all have different metabolisms, genetics, and neurological makeups, so it actually makes me SO MAD when people fat shame other people.

Like, who do you think you are? That’s A) not your place and none of your business, and B) why does it matter?? Like, if you’re a good and kind person that has a different body shape, like why should what you look like matter? I don’t understand??

And SECOND OF ALL, boys can wear crop-tops, too! Just like make-up, it’s all about personal expression, and if you’re a dude who wants to wear a crop-top despite our TOXIC society, then you go king!! 👑👍 Take you’re crown!!

To be one-hundred percent honest, cis guys can wear crop-tops, too. If girls can wear basketball shorts, baggy sweatpants, and over-sized sports jersey because they want to, then guys can wear crop-tops. 

You CANNOT be for one or the other; you gotta play for both teams since y’all are playing/fighting for the same thing!! And that’s just the tea sis.

What people need to understand is that yes, being beautiful on the inside is SO much more beautiful than looking like a model, but there are so many KINDS OF BEAUTIFUL 🖤

The woman in the picture a few paragraphs above is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous, and she is beautiful in her own way.

No, she isn’t what is considered the “beauty standard”, but I think it’s impossible to say that she’s not pretty. Honestly.

And if you have the GUTS to tell me he isn’t handsome, you’re either blind or lying to me and to yourself 🤷‍♀️ Just spreading the facts, my dudes…

What I simply CANNOT understand is why there are gender barriers and beauty standards.

Like I said, NO ONE is physically, mentally, or emotionally the same, so I wish society would stop trying to force that onto people.

One of my favorite quotes is “We were born to be real, not perfect,” which was said by an unknown genius.

What I really want to happen, now that’s it’s 2019, is for gender barriers and beauty standards to crumble.

They’re not relevant, needed, or important, and they cause SO many insecurities!!

Nobody wants to feel like they’re not good enough, so don’t try to force people to be things that they’re not!!

If a boy wants to wear make-up and girls of all sizes want to wear crop-tops and short skirts, LET THEM!! It’s not your place to tell them what to do, and it’s their life; let them live it the way they want to!!

 

 

Unpopular Opinion ; Makeup and Beauty

Okay, so I’m not sure how everyone else feels about this, but I 100% support and believe that boys – whether they’re gay or not, or anything in between – can wear makeup!

I don’t know who created the “rule” that only girls can wear makeup, because James Charles wears that stuff literally 1000 times better than me, and he still gets hate for it! Like, I’m sorry, but James literally looks better, and does his makeup better, than a LOT of people. Don’t @ me; y’all know it’s true.

How is he so pretty? 😍 Like, he’s actually GORGEOUS, and I feel like people totally put aside the fact that he’s A) super good and talented at doing makeup (I mean, are we looking at the same picture here?), B) breaking down gender barriers, which most people are advocating for, and C) just doing something that he loves and expressing himself courageously, all because he’s not a girl.

And to me, that’s honestly SO sad and pathetic. He shouldn’t have to deal with hate and that kind of stuff because people are still living in, like, 1950. This is 2019!! The world has bigger problems than guys who wear makeup. 🤷‍♀️

What really bothers me about makeup, though, is how people use SO MUCH because they think it’ll make them perfect or “cover their flaws”.

I’m NOT saying that that’s what everyone does; I know PERFECTLY well that some people, like James, wear makeup because they like it, not to be perfect or cover up what they don’t like about themselves. I get that; sometimes it feels nice to just put on some makeup, look in the mirror, and say, “Dang, I look pretty good!!” But I feel like some people do it to cover themselves up…

…which sucks!! I don’t want people to EVER feel pressured by the media or by people they admire. I hate it because it happens to me sometimes, and I know that if I have felt that way before, some people may be struggling with the same thing.

What I think the media and people that know they have the spotlight (so basically any celebrity 😂) should do is try to promote more of the “be comfortable in your own skin” message, because I know a lot of people, specifically teenagers, tend to struggle with accepting themselves for how they look.

At my school, we have advisories, and I hate it when I walk in the morning and someone is upset because they don’t feel like they look good in the shirt they picked or their hair makes their face look chubby or their mascara isn’t thick enough so their eyelashes still look small. The beauty standards HAVE to go!!

Not everyone is going to look the same, so promoting the idea that it’s considered “beautiful” is so annoying and unfair!!

These women are both ABSOLUTELY gorgeous, and they look nothing alike! They’re both from different cultures, from different backgrounds, have different body shapes, and wear different clothes, but they’re both beautiful! And I think that’s where a lot of teenagers – and people, in general – get it wrong; it’s so much more beautiful to be yourself, to show off who YOU are, not who you could be. 🖤
