Don’t comment on other people’s food unless they ask you for advice. It’s none of your business. And it can cause relapses if a person is struggling with food anyway. Or maybe this person has a healthy relationship with food so far and your comment makes this…

So I went on a twitter rant the other day because I’m pissed. I’m pissed that stupid fucking pop song is getting so much attention when is so clearly problematic. And before anyone starts that I’m “not focusing on the real problem” or “just mad that a plus sized girl is proud of her body”- obviously you’ve never seen me. I’m a 4’11” blotchy skinned hairy Italian with freaky muscular legs, chubby inner thighs, and a soft stomach full of rolls. I in no way fit into society’s standard for the beautiful white western woman: washboard abs, smooth tan skin, hairless body. I’m chubby, I’m confident, and I love my body. But there’s no fucking way I agree with that songs message or identify with that artist in any way.

I grew up helping raise my two younger cousins. Right now they’re 12 and 10, respectively. The eldest takes after my aunt: she has an abnormally high metabolism and cannot gain wait. She has struggled with body image issues since she was six because other kids make fun of her prominent bones and lack of fat. I’ve found her crying her eyes out in the kitchen after my grandmother spent an hour telling her she needs to eat more or everyone will think she’s ugly and skinny forever. It’s this kind of body shaming which is just as damaging to a girls self esteem as fat shaming it is to a bigger girl like myself.

This song is fucked up. So fucked up. The lyrics are clear:
“Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says boys like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along…

…Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I’m just playing I know you think you’re fat”

Seriously how much more problematic can you get? This is the kind of shit that makes me furious. Why do all these white “feminist” “body positive!!!” girls feel like they need to shame girls who are different than them in order to feel good about themselves? I get that being +sized is hard when society is throwing all these images of skinny white hairless women at you 24/7.

But this isn’t how to go about revolutionizing the way people see body positivity. This isn’t working, and it’s damaging to the self esteem of so many young girls who can’t help their smaller size. Not every skinny girl is confident and happy about her size. And not every skinny girl thinks she’s fat, or has an eating disorder that makes her look the way she looks. They aren’t “bitches” just because they have trouble gaining weight. I understand that a lot of people like me are struggling to feel comfortable in their own skin. But if you want to say “every body is beautiful!” and “fuck beauty standards!”, you’d better do it right. Stop calling skinny girls bitches. Stop turning your anger towards society’s beauty standards on women who can’t help the way the look. Stop hating on other girls to make yourself feel better. Girl hate is poisonous, and all you’re doing is poisoning the body positivity movement with your ignorance.

End of rant.

Edit: Also as my lovely and very well versed friend just pointed out: “The song places women’s worth on having curves in all the ~right places~ to attract boys. And shaming women for having “silicone” bodies reinforces the toxic idea that having plastic surgery makes people frauds.” I think my points been made even clearer.

The story of Junko Furuta, the girl who went through 44 days of torture.

Don’t read this if you can’t handle reading about violence.

This is the story of Junko Furuta, a 17 year old girl who was held captive by 4 teenagers.

DAY 1: November 22, 1988: Kidnapped
Kept captive in house, and posed as one of boy’s girlfriend
Raped (over 400 times in total)
Forced to call her parents and tell them she had run away
Starved and malnutritioned
Fed cockroaches to eat and urine to drink
Forced to masturbate
Forced to strip in front of others
Burned with cigarette lighters
Foreign objects inserted into her vagina/anus

DAY 11: December 1, 1988:
Severely beat up countless times
Face held against concrete ground and jumped on
Hands tied to ceiling and body used as a punching bag
Nose filled with so much blood that she can only breath through her mouth
Dumbbells dropped onto her stomach
Vomited when tried to drink water (her stomach couldn’t accept it)
Tried to escape and punished by cigarette burning on arms
Flammable liquid poured on her feet and legs, then lit on fire
Bottle inserted into her anus, causing injury

DAY 20: December10, 1989:
Unable to walk properly due to severe leg burns
Beat with bamboo sticks
Fireworks inserted into anus and lit
Hands smashed by weights and fingernails cracked
Beaten with golf club
Cigarettes inserted into vagina
Beaten with iron rods repeatedly
Winter; forced outside to sleep in balcony
Skewers of grilled chicken inserted into her vagina and anus, causing bleeding

DAY 30:
Hot wax dripped onto face
Eyelids burned by cigarette lighter
Stabbed with sewing needles in chest area
Left nipple cut and destroyed with pliers
Hot light bulb inserted into her vagina
Heavy bleeding from vagina due to scissors insertion
Unable to urinate properly
Injuries were so severe that it took over an hour for her to crawl downstairs and use the bathroom
Eardrums severely damaged
Extreme reduced brain size

DAY 40: Begged her torturers to “kill her and get it over with”

January 1, 1989:
Junko greets the New Years Day alone
Body mutilated
Unable to move from the ground

DAY 44: January 4, 1989:
The four boys beat her mutilated body with an iron barbell, using a loss at the game of Mah-jongg as a pretext. She is profusely bleeding from her mouth and nose. They put a candle’s flame to her face and eyes. Then, lighter fluid was poured onto her legs, arms, face and stomach, and then lit on fire. This final torture lasted for a time of two hours.

Junko Furuta died later that day, in pain and alone. Nothing could compare 44 days of suffering she had to go through.

When her mother heard the news and details of what had happened to her daughter, she fainted. She had to undergo a psychiatric outpatient treatment. Imagine her endless pain.

Her killers are now free men. Justice was never served, not even after 20 years.

They deserve a punishment much greater than they had put upon Furuta, for putting an innocent girl through the most unbearable suffering.

This story from 1989 is true. Please spread her story around. Everyone should know about the existence of Junko Furuta’s unimaginable and incomprehensible suffering.

Never let her story be forgotten. If this story changes the life of at least one person then it has been worth it.

Rest In Eternal Peace,
Junko Furuta
