Recently during a Q&A session on her Instagram Vera Sidika reveal she felt it was time for her to hit the gym to lose her belly. She made this admission after a fun point it out that most recent photos and videos she keeps hiding her midsection.
However, what looked like a moment of self-realisation, quickly spoilt after she later picked on skinny women by posting a video of an emaciated woman dancing and comparing it to the rattling of bones.
And this got me wondering about just why it is that borderline obese women and chunky girls (chonks) like Vera Sidika keep mocking skinny girls. And the only conclusion I could come to is the fact that they are fuelled by envy.
I’m sure we’ve all had the stereotype about how African men like obese women; you know the type, the ones who can only find the Amit Rift when wearing a belt. And how some obesity apologists claimed this is truly the African standard of beauty, however, I for one remain unconvinced.
You see Vera Sidika that her physique is only desirable if she has a flat belly. That is what differentiates us from being just another fat girl vs being truly thick. The man who first after her one ever looking for your run-of-the-mill village girl. They wanted a girl with huge assets and a wasp waistline.
So while I would like to take this opportunity to encourage her to hit the gym or maybe drink one of those slimming teas she sells or perhaps even visit a doctor to help her get snatched once again, what we shouldn’t allow is for her to make a mockery of truly lithe girls.
As a connoisseur of the finest things in life, I have noticed that I do not see billionaires, millionaires, top-tier athletes actors singers and other men of high value running around with rotund partners. Vera Sidika has been in that one albeit as a rumoured call girl so she knows this to be true and that is what flavours envy. And anyone who says differently is a liar.
On a side note, I was going through her comments and not seeing a single person called her out for body shaming. It seems being body shamed is there is of fat, obese women. Skinny girls get no protection from being body shamed.
