Here at Jezebel, we love all body types, because you are all special snowflakes in your own way. So when we heard about Britton Delizia, a Las Vegas woman who launched a Kickstarter in hopes of funding a book celebrating "thin and beautiful women," we thought, "Sure, why not?" even though that's like every magazine/advertisement/TV Show everywhere, ever.


But her project isn't so much thin-positive as everyone else-negative.

Delizia starts off with an "anonymous" quote that she for sure lifted from either Reddit or the Evil Queen from Snow White, if not own diary:

"In this era we have moved to a point where we have become so politically correct that suddenly it is not only perfectly okay , and acceptable in common situation , but encouraged and beat into our children's heads from birth to judge, bash, and condemn anyone who is of a more statuesque build than you, or fits more ideally inside of the model of the golden ratio."

Wait, what?

Then, there's this delusional introduction:

Its undeniable that when we stand a skinny, athletic or even average sized female next to a larger (even if less healthy, overweight or obese) female, that unless we live outside of this stigma, we as Americans will assume that the heavier person is funnier, smarter, nicer, and less sexually promiscuous, all because she is not as thin or physically fit than the girl next to her.

What Las Vegas/America/world is she living in?

Delizia asks "Why should a woman have to apologize for wanting to be fit? Why should a woman have to apologize because she likes to run? or eat healthy? or just has the metabolism that is geared to keep weight at bay?"


No woman should have to apologize for all of that! But the alternative does not mean posing with a sign that proclaims "I'm sorry the butt I work for isn't as good as the one you ate for," because that's just really gross.




I'm getting awfully tired of the "Woe is me, I'm so fucking persecuted" narrative from the poor, poor skinny girls. And I say that as someone with a stupendously average body.
