My girlfriend hates her body intensely, seeing it as grotesque and flabby and too tall and too square and too boyish. It’s none of those things. She hates it if I compliment it or tell her she’s not any of those things, because she has a “right to feel this way.” What can I do?
Yes, I suppose self hate and body issues are a natural born right to girls across this great nation, but so is it your duty as a good boyfriend — nay, a good American — to stand up for your own First Amendment rights and shout to the fucking rafters that she is not only beautiful in your eyes, but beautiful in every way a woman can be.
Stand up to the tyranny of self hate. Tell that girl she’s gorgeous.
