GT's been kind of hostile lately and I've been staying on the sidelines. I considered responding in the comments or making a post but...I'm too tired. I understand every side's points and it left me so mentally and emotionally exhausted that I no longer give a fuck. So! I decided to make post about something that I do GAF about. Something that also makes me happy for a change. I remember awhile ago people were talking about the thigh gap "trend" and how some responses were showing glamorous women from the past. While I enjoy a good vintage shot as much as the next person it made me sad that most, if not all, of those women were white. My initial response was to make a post about black women but then realized that other WoC would possibly feel the same way I did. So now I'm gonna post as varied a background as I can. Feel free to post your own in the comments!
