"Real" women have curves

There's been a growing trend lately that seeks  to put an end to the classic image of the model: The tall, rail thin, size zero woman who does not represent the majority of women.  While I'm on board with the movement and do think that the fashion industry upholds a very rare and impossible to achieve standard of beauty, I also HATE when people counter this message by saying "Real women have curves." This phrase only serves to put others down while lifting up a certain demographic.  It makes it seem as though women who aren't a size zero should be THE standard, not included in it.

I do!...right?

So I'm a twenty something year old girl who has just decided I never want to get married.  I'm not sure when I had this epiphany, or if I'll feel the same way over time, but my answer to marriage right now is a resounding NO.
