Very recently, a popular blogger, Scott Schuman, also known as the Satorialist, has been under hot fire with the his readers. His blog post about a fellow blogger, Angelika Ardasheva, has created a major conflict. Schuman chose to say about Ardasheva,
“I loved that she’s a bigger, curvier girl than most of the other bloggers who you see in the press and tend to represent the genre.”
Many of his readers chose to focus on those two words: bigger and curvier. However, the point Schuman was trying to make was,
“The subtle thing she achieves so successfully in these two looks is to complement the sturdy but beautiful shape of her legs with an equally strong shoe. A daintier shoe would be overpowered but these shoes create a beautiful harmony for the lower half of her body.”
Schuman’s intentions weren’t to offend anyone, yet it seems that several people were offended. Why, though? Is there really anything to be offended about? Aren’t we all a little bit “bigger” or “curvier” than the average model? There are a select few who are 6 feet tall and 85 pounds.
Today’s society is abusing the word “curvy.” “Curvy” doesn’t mean you’re overweight or that your BMI is higher than it’s supposed to be. To be “curvy” means you have some sort of shape to the silhouette of your body. You’re not just up and down, stick straight. There’s something that the eye can follow, rather than just drop down to the floor.
People were too hung up on these words and forgot to see what Schuman was admiring. If anything he helped his readers. He advised them that even the right shoe can help the look of your figure. People are too sensitive, and I’m sorry to say, get over it!
