~ “Men’s arms, wtf. It’s nasty. Women’s arms aren’t vascular. Looks gross. Women with masculinity are disgusting.” ~ These are just a few of the comments I’ve received recently. I know I shouldn’t let it get to me, but these particular words do hit home. A few years ago, after watching me climb, two first-time female climbers at my gym walked out after loudly declaring they never wanted their arms to look like mine. It was such a sad experience and it’s stuck with me ever since; to think that these girls had possibly given up on an amazing sport because appearance was such a concern. But it makes sense. There is so much pressure to look a certain way, while body shaming and bullying are unfortunately way too common. But you know what…forget that! We don’t exist to please anybody else. Our bodies aren’t objects to be judged by looks, they’re designed to function and do glorious things! My arms give me the ability to climb steep cliffs, hoist heavy sails, paraglide off mountain peaks, and give my friends the biggest hugs! I am grateful everyday to be healthy and strong! If someone doesn’t like that, it’s really their issue. And if anyone else out there has been judged or shamed or feels insecure, I hope you know the problem isn’t you! Keep being you, do the things that make you happy, and love what you’ve got! Because you’re awesome!
