All about that bass, and the skinny bitches

 

skinny

So this morning, I got into a long Facebook debate over the Meghan Trainor song, and another blog that is saying it hates on skinny girls.

I am so sick of women hating on each other.

For someone being taller than them, that they can forever be comfortable in flats, or women being short enough to wear high heels and not tower over everyone in the bar.

For being thin enough, that you never have to worry about not finding a pair of jeans that will fit.

For not having boobs small enough, that you CAN find a dress for your friends wedding.

Hating someone because they do have an ass that fills out that pencil skirt.

Being jealous that someone can eat whatever they want and not gain and ounce, or if you're on the other side and you eat cheesy bread and ranch dressing every day just to try and gain a few lbs.

all sizes

One place in my life I have never felt out of place is with my rugby team. If you're big, you're in the tight five. If you're small, you're on the wing.  If you're in between there's numbers 6-13 for you. Rugby doesn't care if you are girls or a tomboy. If you do your do your hair and make-up before games, or if you don't shower since Thursday practice until Sunday morning.  I have learned that "fit" comes in all shapes and sizes.

From little cabooses to steam engines, every confident woman on the rugby pitch, can score and take another player down.  The "big girls" can play sevens too! The little girls can be in the pack as a hooker. Former cheerleaders make awesome lifters for line-outs. If you played soccer before you know how to see open space and take advantages. Lacrosse plays come ready for contact. Track, volleyball, softball players, you all know the dedication to a sport. Never played before? Think you'll get hurt because your smaller or not able to keep up if you're bigger? NOPE! There is a position for you. Naked midnight rugby? ALL ARE IN!

We need to stop judging and over analyzing everything. Just accept people, say "with you" and pass them the ball. I've never been more comfortable with my body than when I am with the women of all shapes and sizes that come along with being part of a rugby team. Have I always wanted to be taller? Yes, that's what heels are for. Do I want to be thinner? Yes, that is what Spanxs are for. Bigger boobs? Push up or padded bras. But on the pitch, it's a jersey, and shorts, and the only bass that matters is the sound the comes off of a nice and solid tackle.

  • It occurs to me that the same can be said of the resurgence of roller derby.
