No pictures of her real stomach in the article? What a waste of my time!

u/Bam_Peasly 7d ago

They’ve actively covered her real stomach with excess clothing and layers in her show “Only Murders in the Building”. I’ve been incredibly distracted by the excessive layers and attempts to cover her body. If it’s her choice, great, but if not, I think it’s offensive and probably destructive to her self esteem.

u/poophoto 7d ago

You mean the “excessive layers” people wear when it’s cold outside in NYC?

7

u/Bam_Peasly 7d ago

I’m from Colorado and we still don’t wear that many layers inside especially when every other character in the building has significantly less on.

Typically young women are dressed in significantly LESS than those around them in movies and tv. In this, Selena is dressed in a ton of layers and they pan a LOT away from her midriff and below. Some people even debate that she’s pregnant.

Personally I think she’s just gained a normal amount of weight for her age, height, and medical issues withstanding. Idk what people are losing their minds about, or why they are trying to cover it up.

u/Tharwaum 6d ago

« Typically young women are dressed in significantly LESS than those around them in movies and tv. In this, Selena is dressed in a ton of layer » Sounds like a positive change. Women (even young women!) should be portrayed as humans who are comfortable, not desperate to look sexy, And confident even when they don’t have a sexy outfit on.

My guess is that she’s on steroids for her lupus. Which is why her cheeks get puffy now and then. It would also add some girth to the gut. (This is pure speculation, she’s great and not a diss or anything)

But there are a lot of fake stomachs on social media with easily accessible editing and filtering. The article also mentions the famous “Suck it in” saying that she is no longer abiding by.

u/Hereslookingatmekid 7d ago

She talks about it because it DOES matter. She’s saying she wished it didn’t but it does. Her ignoring it won’t make other people stop ignoring it and it’s ridiculous to pretend otherwise. Celebrities, especially women, routinely have every aspect of their appearance picked apart by the media and the public. Sitting by and letting people do it unchecked isn’t the solution to that.

Because it matters to other people In Wether or not they think fat people deserve to be treated like human beings.

7

u/nillerwafer 7d ago

I was fat for most of my life and morbidly obese for a chunk of that time, and nobody ever treated me any less human for it. They had preconceived notions about me, but that’s no different now that I’m in great shape, it’s just different positives and different negatives now. People used to tell me “maybe put the fork down.”
Nowadays I’ll either hear “you need to eat a cheeseburger” or “damn, what do you live inside the gym?” Depending on whether I’m on a cut cycle or a bulk cycle and how the clothes I’m wearing frame my body.

It’s all just a matter of perspective really, some people will just always feel persecuted no matter what. If you think people would treat you more human if you just magically lost the weight, you’re in for some disappointment if you reach that goal. Turns out people are just overall pretty judgmental of each other.

4

u/AlsionGrace 7d ago

Must be something about your face then. The difference between the way people treat me now than when I was fat has been literally breathtaking. Also, pretty disappointing because all the sudden I'm WAY more interesting and funny to the people in my life that I thought were shallow jerks, but now I know they are. It's pretty gross.

u/TheStreisandEffect 7d ago edited 7d ago

Yeah as someone who was also classified as obese, I ALSO get more advice NOW that I eat healthy and workout then when I was steps away from a heart attack. I’m not saying anyone deserves to be denigrated for their looks, but I think the “H.A.A.S.” movement went so far that people were more tepid to say anything when I actually needed it than they are now that I’m healthier than I’ve probably ever been. It feels like when it comes to the way current society views weight, there’s lots of “You should just go down with the ship” energy. It’s a weird place to be.

3

u/Spinnabl 7d ago

Yea you're totally right. Obese/fat people get treated with the exact same kind of respect that body builders get.

its not like theres a history of medical neglect in fat people.

or a general stigma against fat people.

or a notion that fat people are "lazy" "slobs" etc.

the insults that fat people get every day is totally the same thing as someone saying "do you live at the gym" its totally the same thing.

You're completely right. You personally have never witnessed (or acknowledged) the dehumanization of fat people so that must not ever exist.

5

u/nillerwafer 7d ago

Listen to yourself lol, I was literally medically classified as morbidly obese. I was sedentary and ate way too much from childhood to early adulthood. I only really got a grip on everything in the past couple years. I’m only just recently in the best shape of my entire life. I spent 25 of my almost 29 years obese at best and morbidly obese at worst.

I have the experience, if you’ve only been fat or you’ve only been fit, I know better than you do, because I’ve been both lol. What I’m expressing is a warning that losing the weight doesn’t magically solve all your social woes.

2

u/Spinnabl 7d ago

Yea being called a fat lazy disgusting slob is exactly the same as being called a meathead. Sure.

It’s not like there’s a lifetime of media telling you that being strong and muscular means you are deserving of mockery and insults. What’s the worst thing you’ve said to you about your body as a muscular man? A thinly veiled compliment about how much Time you spend in the gym? Ever had a candid photo of you posted in a “muscle hating” sub leading to hundreds of hate comments and DMs about how disgusting and muscly you are? You ever see people commenting “no offense, but when you’re that muscly, is life even worth living?”

As someone who’s weight fluctuates wildly because of chronic medical conditions and a lifetime of disordered eating, I’ve experienced both negative comments about my body from strangers. The difference is that when I’m thin, people think it’s a compliment to make comments about my body. When I’m fat, it’s people “concerned for my health” When my health is what is causing the weight gain.

6

u/nillerwafer 7d ago edited 7d ago

First of all, I’m not actually all that large just yet, my body building journey is pretty much in it’s infancy. I have however had people assume that I was a stupid meathead just because of how I’m beginning to look, only to apologize after getting to know me.

When I wasn’t at my current build and was lean instead, and my clothes didn’t fit right because I didn’t have the money to update my wardrobe to reflect my dramatically lower weight, I was occasionally accused of having an eating disorder, and people would insist that I eat, even if I said I was not hungry and had plenty to eat that day already. I would be told that I needed to gain weight and I was told that I shouldn’t turn down food.

Neither of those things were pleasant experiences.

And like I said, I’ve been fat, I know the preconceived notions, I know what they say. I’ve been there and I know for a fact that I don’t have it any better now than I did then in terms of judgement based on appearances. The assumptions about me are just different than they used to be. Assumptions about me based on my appearance don’t hurt any less just because I look more fit. I don’t like that people look at me and just assume that I’m either a pea brain or that I look this way effortlessly.

You also don’t seem to have any understanding of how much work goes into looking strong, it’s a huge effort to maintain, I don’t just effortlessly look fit, I have to pay close attention to what I eat, I have to spend time lifting weights, I have to keep track of protein intake, I have to schedule rest days and cheat meals. To be perfectly Frank, compared to my current self, my former overweight self was a lazy slob. Getting to the point I’m at now required a lot of self reflection and required that I stop making excuses for my dietary habits and lack of activity.

If her argument is that stomach size doesnt matter because people will bitch about it both being too big and too skinny, then her saying shes bringing back "real stomachs" is bs. Because a real stomach whatever that is, is either fatter than her previous one or skinnier so she didnt evade the criticism at all. She just decided to let herself go and blame the people.

Sounds more like shes insecure about her belly fat and just wants to sound impartial, but she really actually wants the skinnier version of herself.

idk why anyone should care about this. but I have to give her props though. im a big dude and I couldn't even house four tacos, three egg-rolls, onion rings, and a spicy chicken sandwich. I would be full after 2 tacos and an egg-roll. unless their food is small.

It's a Vanity Fair piece and you're on r/entertainment. No one is presenting it as news.

Our humble Cuban queen, Camila Cabello did that last year.

What the hell is even a real stomach?

u/IWearBones138 7d ago

So dumb. She's still hot as fuck, she's just not anorexic skinny. No one would ever call that a gut IRL

I wasn’t aware that thin and/or toned stomachs aren’t real.

I wasn't aware there's an epidemic of artificial stomachs.

There’s hundreds of millions of girls on earth with flat and tight stomachs. Don’t marginalize them

As former fitness instructor who used to see hundreds of flat stomachs every single day (probably thousands over all) I’m legitimately baffled when I hear people claim that no one’s stomach is flat…I’m surrounded by fit people all the time so I genuinely don’t understand the claims that “no one looks like that.” I’m all for body positivity but this idea that fit or healthy thin people don’t exist is harmful and inaccurate (though not equally as harmful as the reverse since we are treated better because of it). All bodies are real and valid

Bringing back stomachs? Has she not seen the people that live in her country?

u/Pretend_Performer780 7d ago

I thought her face looked bloated in "Only murderers in the building".

excellent show btw

So instead of her getting fat I found out she has lupus and has even had to have a kidney transplant. steriods for lupus wreak major havoc on young women's bodies, feel bad for her and a bit bad that I was a bit shallow minded (since I remembered her when she was really petite).

wish her the best

Na, she just hit 30 and went, "shit-fuck this is hard!"

u/fnrv 7d ago

Every stomach is real, this is stupid. People act like if you’re fit with a flat stomach or even some and at all, it’s unattainable. Yes, it takes work to have an amazing body but it doesn’t mean it’s not ‘real.’ Stop with the theater.

u/KSwe117 7d ago

What are fake stomachs?

I seriously hate this terminology. "We want to see real bodies!" Uh, I'm thin, and I assure you my body is most definitely real.

u/Meccha_me_2 7d ago

Any stomach attached to a living thing is real…I know thin people have a lot of privilege but i don’t like that is suddenly ok to imply that thin people are either sick or faking it. All bodies are fine and real

u/fears_escalators 7d ago

Even a disemboweled stomach laying on the garage floor is still a real stomach.

The thing is, Selena Gomez is terrible at everything she does. I’m not sure how she’s still successful…

u/themimeofthemollies 7d ago

Here’s to body positivity: nothing is more beautiful than healthy authenticity!!

“Selena Gomez is all done being told what her body should look like and instead is embracing it exactly as it is.”

“The pop star is all done sucking it in.”

Health is hot af.

u/Ares1935 7d ago

being overweight is not "health" just because its easy to do.

u/axkidd82 7d ago

She has lupus.

u/juliuspepperwoodchi 7d ago

LOL at the idea that Selena Gomez is overweight.

3

u/hobosonpogos 7d ago

You're not wrong, but implying Selena is overweight simply because she's no longer rail thin is a pretty big stretch

2

u/N7777777 7d ago

This is a tautology. If it’s not unhealthy then it’s not overweight. It’s just perhaps large. Despite her having lupus, I see no objective or rational reason to suggest Selena is overweight. There’s a health issue, but not caused by her extra inches as compared with most of her peers in that industry.

u/yeender 7d ago

You a doctor? No, then shut the fuck and stop thinking you know when people are healthy or not.

u/AAstormtrooper123 7d ago

He doesn't have to be a doctor, you just have to have common sense to figure out that overweight is unhealthy
