  1. All of the 'curvy' ones are way exaggerated lol. Look at ancient Greek statues, they embody the beauty ideal of the culture and they're more like models than this girl

  2. Ancient Egyptians weren't black. If you look at ancient wall paintings and manuscripts from the time you'll see that Ancient Egyptians = brown, Greeks, Libyans, Phoenicians and Romans: white, Nubians and other Africans: black. End of story.

  3. That depiction of the golden age of Hollywood is just about normalizing plus sizes in current day and nothing to do with actually depicting the truth. I’m sure that Judy Garland, when she was being made to subsist on nothing but chicken broth and amphetamines (at the age of 16!!) would be really impressed with our grasp of beauty standards of the time – and with our total disregard of what most women put themselves through in order to try and attain it. Ahh… Buzzfeed. All about the political agendas once again: 99% ideology, 1% truth.

  4. Historian brain: The 30s one isn't even remotely accurate, body standards at the time were in favor of really petite and skinny hourglass figures.

    Lesbian brain: heheh pretty ladies
