Most would be offended when someone says "They’re a fat bitch." So why not when someone says "They’re a skinny bitch."?
It is the same. You are still referring to someone’s body in a negative light; being derogatory.You are still using it as a weapon.
In this particular instance, you are saying that nobody likes this body type. How are those people going to feel when they read this?
Let’s just stop any kind of body shaming! (And preferably not call each other bitches.)

9,000 Fallen Soldiers Stenciled into Sand at Normandy Beach

To commemorate “Peace Day”, British artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss, in combination with many volunteers, went to Normandy Beach and stenciled the silhouettes of the 9,000 soldiers who lost their lives on D-Day during World War II. With rakes and stencils pads shaped like bodies in hand, the group completed the temporary art installation titled The Fallen 9000.

The work is meant to serve as a stark visual reminder of the civilians, allied forces and Germans who died during the beach landings at Arromanches on D-Day: June 6th, 1944. The initial team began with 60 volunteers, but as word spread to nearby residents, an additional 500 people came to help with the temporary installation. Although the stenciled body impressions in the sand only lasted a few hours before the tide washed them away, the photographs serve as a reminder of the horrors of war and of the cherished lives lost.

Oh, Canada! Transgender Archives and Research Center Arises →

neutrois:

The Transgender Research Center plans to encompass the broadest possible perspectives on trans studies, in a rather breathtaking vision. It would bring together some of the world’s best researchers and scholars, along with advanced students, trans community thought leaders, and our allies, to forge new understandings and approaches to advancing the rights of trans people to full respect and support. Inspired scholars and effective activists would work together from every perspective.

"If you meet her at school or anywhere else, you are welcome to ask if she’s a girl or a boy and if you just assume she’s a boy and she corrects you, you don’t need to be embarrassed or to try to justify yourself by telling me you didn’t know because she’s dressed like a boy. All you have to do is smile and say “Great! Nice to meet you, Matilda.” Don’t worry, I’m still learning too."

Great article from a mom of a gender nonconforming child. What I have quoted was my favorite part.

I think it says something that this got three likes on facebook but over 15,000 notes on tumblr.

Well, the status is set to “friends only”. If I had seen it on Facebook, I would have “liked” it. :)
