Do stretch marks ruin a woman’s body?

What does a perfect body for a woman even look like?

Sunday Morning sinful sunday photo cara sutra stretch marksGot this comment on one of my Facebook Page photos (where you can see some of my stretch marks – gasp, horror) yesterday which made me laugh. From a cosmetic surgeon, funnily enough.

hi baby best figure

but baby u have lots of stretch marks get them treated u will be just yummy

My reply?

Ill be yummy after I get the stretch marks removed? Yes I have stretch marks. Im a real woman, Ive had a baby – and a life. Im proud of the fact I’m real, not some cut to pieces, re-injected, fake tanned out of all human skin tone range, photo shopped, air brushed, pop candy, lad mag star wanna be. I’m me, I’m a mum, I’m real, this is how I look in real life. I don’t remove my hair/teeth/tits any other part of my body when I get into bed, I still look like who I am. Don’t like it? Get a blow up doll.

How sad that a woman can’t be just pale, with yes her marks from life, having lived. I dont think my stretch marks are excessive but I have had two pregnancies. Things happened in my life before the pregnancies that has led to other faded marks. I’m not a victim in life, I’m a soldier.

Jerks like this are part of the reason women find it so difficult to accept themselves, in a physical way never mind anything else – and then accept that someone else really accepts them. What the world often sees as physical flaws about a woman are just her unique aspects – what makes somebody physically perfect, anyway? It certainly isn’t symmetry – if you’ve ever seen photo-shops of a perfectly symmetrical face it just looks odd and unnatural. It is within our very flaws that beauty lies, in my opinion.

I won’t have a tummy tuck or a boob job, but then the only thing silicone about me when I do get (even!) older will be half the contents of my sex toys collection.

  1. Great reply about getting a sex doll instead of a woman. My wife has stretch marks, too, from our children, and I love her more for our shared life.
