Are Meghan Trainor and Nicki Minaj role models for skinny girls?

Yeah, he love this fat ass
Yeah! This one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club
I said, “Where my fat ass big bitches in the club?”
Fuck those skinny bitches,
Fuck those skinny bitches in the club
I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club, fuck you if you skinny bitches. What? Yeah!

Whilst listening to two of my favourite songs, sadly I heard what I felt was an attack on ‘Skinny Bitches’ as both songs claim to only be for the curvier woman, with anorexia becoming a huge problem in both the UK and US it is impossible for Meghan and Nicki to claim to be feminists as they both feel because they are more curvy they can create a split in the female population. As a girl who has lost a considerable amount of weight and now feels comfortable with her weight I take it as a personal insult that skinny hating is such a popular song topic… Had those songs been reversed there would have been public outrage… The lyric ‘Fuck those fat bitches’ would not sell many records however it is socially acceptable to skinny bash. Why?

It has been pushed upon girls that they should aim to be skinnier and that if they know someone skinnier than them they should hate them for having less fat in their body’s. This has created a size war within females, it has lead to men aiming for girls who are hated and in turn worsened this war… However with the rise of women with curves within the celebrity world this has made women with curves feel more accepted within society which has helped hugely with female confidence in general. However, with songs like this being written this reiterates that girls who are skinnier should have less self confidence than that of a girl with curves, creating a size war but the other way round.

I’m sure I speak for most girls who have lost a considerable amount of weight, I felt really accomplished with being a healthy size that I was extremely happy with, I feel since losing over 4 stone that I am at a weight where I can be proud of my weight loss as I was at a very unhealthy size at a very young age. Overcoming this was extremely hard as I was so young but I understood that if I continued at that size I would be extremely unhealthy throughout my adult life. I commend all girls and think all girls are beautiful in their own individual and unique way, I personally would never tell a girl she was fat or skinny, why not use confidence boosters like slim and curvy? Why must skinny and fat be used?

I just feel that both songs are trying their best to continue the size gap which is not needed. In my opinion all women are beautiful and should know that so despite both songs telling me that I am 1- skinny and 2- a bitch I will continue to love myself no matter what.

I’m bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
