As you can see in the photo I have more of the larger dangling type of labia. I never had a problem with them until I saw the term “beef curtains” and as you can see would actually probably fit me perfectly but the guys opinions were harsh and they mocked it and so I became extremely self conscious. How can I love my body?
I HATE the term “beef curtains” as it is a derogatory term which has been coined by immature college guys who objectify women and have no regard for their feelings.
The reality is that labia come in all shapes and sizes. Yours are well within normal range (just take a look around this website and you will see that!) and you have nothing to be concerned about.
I’m so sorry that you had to experience the immaturity of those idiots. They are clearly ignorant about what is normal, and their opinion should not make you have a negative opinion of yourself.
By reaching out to me and asking how you can love your body, you have already started the journey towards self-acceptance. Hopefully browsing through the hundreds of submissions on this website will also help – it is here as a resource to spread education about what is normal and to promote body pride among women everywhere.
