Truth.

Y'know, if it wasn't for my passive consumption of media-induced gender & beauty norms, the frustratingly superficial expectation of and infatuation with becoming trophy wives as per the tradition of the Pakistani(/desi?) diaspora, and well-intentioned (??) passing remarks from friends and/or relatives...

...I think I would be 100% okay with my 'curvy' body.


Screw you, socialization!

Salam, Urooba! Yes, for sure.
And where I live, Brazil, the women get crazy to achieve a "perfect" body, for what? To become a person without soul.

no need to be passive. Do like me, and scream at them whenever you see them! XD
