Telling a girl she’s pretty while refusing to be seen with her in public is a form of body shaming.
Its our responsibility as women to think highly of ourselves and hold ourselves to a higher standard. These closet chubby chasers do hurtful/shameful things to big girls because we let them. If we all banded together and said, no… we refuse to be your midnight girlfriend/pillow buddy/anonymous pen pal, then maybe… just maybe guys would cut it out.

"For me, taking “skinny” out of the equation is changing my definition of success. I’ve spent half of my life obsessed with a body ideal that I’m pretty sure isn’t for me. If I keep focusing on skinny, I’ll always feel like a failure, but as I focus on healthy, I feel like I can set attainable goals for myself. Instead of a number on the scale or a pants size, success to me is doing the right things for my body (fitness/food/self care) and loving my body every step of the way."
