The phrases 'only dogs go for bones' or 'real women have curves' or something like that irritates me when I hear or see it. It perpetuates body shaming, and suggests that if your tastes doesnt acquire to the norm, you're unattractive.

So it makes me happy when celebrities like Daisy Ridley say something profound to help us own what ever 'imperfections' we possess.

That said, apparently there are some trolls who will go out of their way to skinny-shame the actress and the character she portrayed on [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158).

The Instagram troll posted this cool screenshot of Rey but attached an appalling speech bubble to it:

The OP probably didn't watch Force Awakens; Rey's a scavenger and barely eats, how can she have curves?

Ridley gave the perfect response:

"'Real women' are all shapes and sizes, all ethnicities, all levels of brave. I am a 'real woman' like every other woman in this world."

The photo has since been deleted (and the troll's account appears to be, too), as was Ridley's original response. She didn't want us to be mean, but I'd still call the OP a troll.

And remember, only our doctor can say what's wrong with our body size.


Is Rey a Kenobi or a Skywalker?
