Shane Dawson On His Body Image




The Language Around Body Image Is So Important—so We're Banning These Words

"Flaw"

"I hate it when people talk about us having flaws—cellulite/wrinkles/fat/scars/freckles … whatever it is. It's a part of you. It's perfectly normal and it is in no way a 'flaw.' If we change the language, then we can hope to start changing the narrative that 'flaws' are bad." — Natalie Lee, Style Me Sunday

"Normal"

"Muffin Top"

"I get it—a belly sitting atop a waistband looks like a muffin top. But it's hardly the smartest comparison to have ever graced the English language (or the kindest, for that matter). It's a dig that you may eat too many muffins or the like. It's rude, insensitive, unfunny and unnecessary. Sure, I don't like my belly, but no one has the right to compare it to a baked good." — Amy Lawrenson, editorial director, Byrdie UK

"Plus-Size"

"I can't stand the phrase 'plus-size.' It doesn’t make any sense to me. It's not 'plus-size'—it's just a shape. When it comes to your body, that is your body shape, not size. In fact, I'd happily change all clothing labels to use words like 'hot stuff,' 'mega babe,' 'divine' and 'stunner.'" — Jules Von Hep, celebrity tanner and co-founder of Isle of Paradise

"Beach Body"

"Pour Your Curves"

"Implying that women with curves have to literally find ways to reshape and squeeze themselves to be almost liquid in order to get into an outfit … I find the concept of 'pouring one's curves' (as beloved of so many trashy newspapers) to be offensive and really lazy journalism. You can have curves and just zip up, button up or tie up clothes like any other person. I know this for a fact!" — Hannah Almassi, editorial director, Who What Wear UK

"Flattering"

"Problem Area"

"I hate the term 'problem area.' I just can't prescribe to the idea that particular sections of our bodies require fixing, and so if I could, I’d put a global ban on the phrase forevermore. I'm certain that if we heard this term less, we'd all have fewer body hang-ups." — Shannon Peter, deputy editor, Byrdie UK

"Wide"

"I'd say the word I'd ban is 'wide.' For some reason, it just rubs me up the wrong way. I have an hourglass body, and oftentimes my hips are referred to as 'wide.' I just think, 'No! They're just part of my very normal, healthy body. I'm not a truck!'" — Emma Hoareau, photographer and founder of Lolita Says So

"Flaunted"

"I'd ban the word 'flaunted' because it's time we stopped shaming women for owning their bodies. If you want to show off your legs, do it. If you want to wear a low-cut top, go for it. It doesn't mean you're 'flaunting' it or showing it off—it just means we are in charge of our bodies. And we should be!" — Alyss Bowen, associate social media editor, Byrdie UK

"Should"

"'Should' is such a mean little word! It's basically saying you ought to be doing/looking/being something that you're not. 'I should be better, I should be thinner, I should stop drinking cider.' Blah blah blah. There's a big difference between what you should be doing and what you want to be doing. Things that we want to do make us happy and things that we should be doing make us feel guilty. This is why we feel bad about eating chocolate fingers in front ofLove Islandinstead of doing the washing up. Even though midweek chocolate fingers are brilliant. 'Should' makes it hard to enjoy the moment because we feel like we should be doing something else. I mean, nobody ever celebrated looking back on all the things they 'should' have done. Finally, could anything be more annoying than someone telling you that you 'should' have something done differently?! No. 'Should' has got to go." — Sarah Powell, presenter and podcaster of Jules and Sarah: The Podcast

"Curvy"

"I feel like it's often used in a derogatory way—using it to slyly put down celebs when they're not 'skinny' enough.
