View Full Version : A celebration of your body: what do you love about it?
07-13-2003, 05:17 PM
We are our own worst critics. I read a lot about how people have various body issues and don't like this or that about their body. I am not alone in that! We are all human.
It is not often that I hear people say, Hey, I really like my...! (humble people that we are :$ ). Beauty comes in all genders, shapes, forms, and sizes. Beauty is also found in imperfections. When we believe that we are beautiful, other people will find it easier to see that beauty in us. It doesn't matter what other people think is beautiful or not so beautiful in you, it's what you believe is beautiful in yourself. So, I hope this will be a confidence builder and not some heated debate.
On that note, this thread is about physical attributes. It is only ONE aspect of beauty, but I think it is the hardest one to admit to ourselves. It is much easier to say, I am a kind and caring person with a sense of humour than to say, I've got stunningly white pearlies! I invite everyone to take on this challenge. And I mean EVERYONE: ftms, mtfs, butches, femmes, and anything inbetween! This is not just for femmes!

I've got this little pimple on my butt. It's actually kinda cute. It hasn't gone away for several months, so I've gotten used to it, and actually, we're getting along quite nicely. I'm sure lots of people have a pimple on the butt, but it's that pimple on my right bum cheek *in combination* with the birth mark on my left leg that makes me feel beautiful and so uniquely me. :$
Oh...and I do have nice white pearlies.
07-14-2003, 01:26 PM
i like my hands - i do good things with them and they are just the right size and shape. i remember a woman once told me how butch my hands were. and she didn't mean it as a compliment, but i took it that way and never forgot how good it felt to hear it.
07-14-2003, 02:09 PM
I appreciate this thread because I struggle sometimes with body image... I thought of something to share:
I like my knees... my mom said they were ugly - then justified it by saying that all knees are ugly... but I think they're kind of nice knees. They work well and they're covered in freckles :)
07-14-2003, 02:09 PM
Hello to all and that small pimple...have you named it yet? LOL
I like the fact that my whole body is functioning properly right down to regular bowel movements...I find constipated people to be grouchy ya know.
I could stand to do sit ups regularly and cardio vascular exercises for a stronger heart like everyone should but all in all I like me!!!
Just my 2 pennies

Marvelous idea, Peas&Carrots!
Let's see... I think my best physical attribute are my legs, hair and eyes. :-)
I have very firm, long legs. My hair is black and naturally curly. I have hazel green eyes. Not bad for 42 year old!
07-14-2003, 02:28 PM
Ohhhh this IS hard, since i am my worst enemy... hmmmmm
i would have to say i love my eyes... lol.. even though now that i'm getting older i have to resort to holding things past an arms length.. lol.
Seriously.. i love the color of my eyes and also, at times.. it's like i can feel my inner self coming out from them .....
which leads me to also say that at times i love my smile because my smile makes my eyes dance a bit more. Yes even my smile with my crooked tooth. *giggle*

Actually the only body issue I ever had was that sometimes when I look at myself naked I'm not sure what gender I am...but then again it's part of my charm & really does reflect my butchness 2 the fullest . So I take alot of pride in my uniqueness that most people who have issues not fixing in 2 a certin ideal image don't.
Other things I totally dig about my own package inculde...my gaint hairy nesmos--which is a scare name 4 my huge birthmark I have on my neck, my widow's peck, the fact my eyes turn green when I'm sad--black when I'm angery, the fact I have nice viens, as well as my smile that looks totally str8, but is totally missing a tooth on the buttom row...and can't 4get my tum cuz it's the only area that I ever shows any sign of the many hours I work out dancin @ the clubs.., but totally I could go on 4ever and a day if I was talkin about things I found attractive in the bodies of femmes...this is however my list on things I like about my body --2 which I can't 4get 2 add my ever hard / as big as my ego cock 2 the list.
07-14-2003, 02:47 PM
Not to be a rain cloud on ya honey, but get the pimple checked out to make sure its really just a pimple...Okay Okay, so Im a worrywart. But 7 months seems to be a long time. *And dont forget to wear a sweater on chilly days. LMAO..I sound like someone's mama.
I love my shape, the way that Im a classic Latina a la Iris Chacon...large full breasts, small waist, large hips, large full culo..
I even love my "Joey" - *That would be my small kangaroo pouch of a belly. I like it. So what I dont have Abs of steel..lmao.
Love the extremely high arch in my feet...love my full lips...my eyes that go from yellow to green to hazel whenever they feel like it..
*Who's happy with all of herself...
07-14-2003, 03:13 PM
This is a hard one for me. That's why I'm makeing myself post here.
Growing up all my life hears that I'm ugly and fat hasn't helpd me much. But I have grown to love myself. ANd even thought I find it hard to like what I look like. I still love myself. For there is no one out there like me.
The only thing I have always liked about myself is my hair. I love how long it is and what prettty color it is naturally or when i dye it. I love that now it is starting to take on some natural wave to it to when it's wet.
Oh and I tihnk I have very sexy feet. But thats just me
07-14-2003, 03:41 PM
I have a small beauty mark (ahem.... birthmark) smack dab in the center of my breasts, right at the top of my cleavage. I love it!!!
07-14-2003, 03:53 PM

1- i have a great smile

5- i have purdy brown skin
6- i have great teeth

07-14-2003, 06:18 PM
I have extremely soft skin, and very silky hair
07-14-2003, 06:21 PM
Hi everybody! Glad people are enjoying this thread and finding *something* to say, especially for those peeps who have an especially hard time with body image.
lol. I was thinking of naming that pimple, but maybe better get it checked out first before officially adopting and christening it.
A couple of you mentioned that someone said something bad about your body, but you actually took it as a compliment or like that part anyway. Well, it made me think about how most things can be seen from two different perspectives. For instance, my mom told me I had a mousy face (she actually scrunched up her face to demonstrate). lol. I can laugh about it now. (I'm laughing at how much more mousy her face was than mine!). Well, someone said that I had delicate features and I have believed in that since.
07-14-2003, 10:03 PM
Wow, what a great thread P & C. This is just what is needed around here. I'm so sick of all the negative stuff that pops up surrounding body image. Thanks for starting this great thread.
<Taking deep breath>
I don't really have body issues, so to speak but I do have a hard time patting myself on the back. :$
<Taking another deep breath>
I have great eyes. They have a twinkle in them most of the time. They are normally hazel but will change from green to blue to gray depending on what I wear and my mood.
Great smile. My eyes almost close when I smile. I smile and laugh a lot.
Soft, smooth skin :$
Thick, soft, shiny hair
A very soothing voice which makes people very comfortable talking to me. Most femmes tell me I have a sexy voice. :$
A contagious laugh.
A good personality.
Great sense of humor.
Hmm, I guess I have a pretty healthy outlook with my self image. :)
07-14-2003, 10:40 PM
1)gorgeous eyes.. green on the outside, brn on the inside
2) a nice rack.. not too big, not too small and still havent drifted down too low
3) very cute lil boi tushie (no hips to speak of)

5) cute lil roll of tummy fat
07-14-2003, 10:49 PM
(l) Such a nice thread. I'm thinking I could stand to give my self some body-love.
What is good about my body:
(l) my eyes: they have brown, green, and blue in them and look either green, blue, hazel, brown, or amber depending on my mood and what color I'm wearing.
(l) my hair: it's soft, silky, and a lovely color
(l) my delicate skin
(l) my full lips
(l) my straight teeth
(l) my small hands that can remember intricate patterns and make beautiful music
(l) my whole lotta curve for a 5'2" frame: I have a downright obscene waist-to-hip ratio
(l) my widow's peak
(l) my cute, round face that keeps me looking young

07-15-2003, 02:20 PM
…have so many body issues that are so negative… no, not talking misogyny here… just about this traumatized/masculinized intersexual’s body I inhabit… which after many years and too many surgeries, I am finally starting to get comfortable in…
what I love;
my deep blue eyes…
my soft small breasts…
my strong arms…
my sensitive hands…
my soft skin…
my full lips…
my dimples when I smile…
my dark curly hair…
o.k. my perky butt *blushing*
the way it so matches my third sex/other Butch gender and sexuality…
Love & Peace,
:[ <signature bat
07-15-2003, 02:42 PM
I love my eyes...almond shape ..blue green
my soft full lips
the curves of my body

07-15-2003, 02:59 PM
My eyes,they are green,people love them,,they say they are sad,but yet they can look into my soul when they look in them,I also blush when people tell me I have perty eyes :$
07-15-2003, 04:58 PM
~My naturally curly, naturally auburn hair (I can prove it too *wink wink*)
~My well shaped eyebrows (did you know some people have fetishes for nice eyebrows?)
~My green almond shaped eyes (I have happy eyes)
~My cute turned up nose (great for playing quarters when I was younger)
~My full, well shaped lips (they are very soft too!)
~My voice (I have been told my singing and speaking voice melts knees)
~My soft ivory skin (It shows spankings well *grin*)
~My perky 36C breasts (32 years old, and they still stand at attention when I take my bra off!)
~My well proportioned body (thank God for my Dad's genes)
~My long legs (they look great in stockings)
Ok, I think that is enough narcissism for one day....or maybe the whole week.

07-15-2003, 09:28 PM
My upper body muscles. Building them and building them. *must do more push-ups*
My eyes. dark, just wish they were darker, near black.
My teeth. Thanks to all my ancestors for the good straight white choppers. :D
07-16-2003, 12:41 PM
I've been told this from a lot of people....and I've come to the conclusion it must be true..so I know truly believe that I have and love my smile, full lips, and dark brown eyes.
07-16-2003, 12:57 PM
i would definately have to say that i love my breasts ..
then i would say my voice .. i am told its very raspy and very sexy ..
Plus i love my the confidence that i have ..
and this may be weird but i love the stretch marks i have on my stomach from having my kids .. i am very proud to have had two kids .. :)
07-16-2003, 08:35 PM
Ok the things I like best about myself:
my hair, it's so soft and long you just want to put your hands in it.
my eyes, I was always told they were too small when I was younger but I like them
my lips, they are always pink and soft
my shoulders, strong yet feminine
the little beauty mark on my right butt cheek
the small of my back, it's perfectly curved
Wow I just found out there are more things than I thought....thanks
07-16-2003, 08:39 PM
Ok so here it goes...
My eyes they are blue and "intense" or so I have been told
My breasts I just like them...
My curly hair it's blond and I used to hate it but I found they best hairdresser and I love it now
But most of all I love what my body can do, I'm strong and I love the way I feel after I work out.....besides I make Boo's toes curl.
07-19-2003, 05:22 PM
First I LOVE hearing all you woman appreciating your own attributes, knowing how to use what you've been blessed with IS part of the femme mystique.....
so the parts of my body that I appreciate the most are (^)
My eyes........big and really green, I love to paint them up all dramatic.......
next would be my voice.........I work in radio and spent years training my voice to do exactly what I want it too..........
shoulders~ cleavage go nicely together...........
but I have to admitt the very best part of me is my backside, curvy hips, with a nice full round tight boottie........and yes it has to move like that! Gotta go somewhere when I walk........
Danm I'm a bit full of myself this afternoon:o
But If I don't appreciate what I've got, neither will anyone else..................
07-19-2003, 05:33 PM
Theres lots of things id love to change or surgically "fix" about myself but I'll start by saying the one thing I have never EVER complained about.
My face. I think I have a beautiful face. When i was fat i was always the heavy girl with the pretty face. *sigh*
I love the color of my skin. Smooth caramel, soft, silky, usually smells sweet like victorias secret lotion. Mmm.
My eyes are slightly slanted, almond shaped, deep brown, very exotic looking, actually. Cat eyes. Bedroom eyes. Fuck me eyes.
My cheekbones (thanks to cherokee relatives) are high.
My lips are full, shapely, and delicious.
My face is the thing I like best. My breasts would be next.
Then my legs. Voloputous thighs, nice long legs that pour into stiletto heels!
If I could just get rid of the last 15 lbs I think I'll be perfect (for me)!
07-19-2003, 06:16 PM
I like my eyes. They're so blue, people have asked me if the color is real (it is :) )
I like how my figure looks from the front- very hourglass, Mae West/Marilyn Monroe-like. :)
07-19-2003, 06:59 PM
If I could just get rid of the last 15 lbs I think I'll be perfect (for me)!
Darlin, you ARE perfect!!! On a scale of 1-10 you blow the roof off at about 1000.
07-19-2003, 11:17 PM
Yep, this is a totally great thread.
Ok, so something i love about myself. I'm not so easy on myself, everything I think about I would change.
And if someone else said this about themselves I would slap them.
But anyway, I love my fangs. And my smile.
07-20-2003, 10:14 AM
cyd is going to make me blush...
Another great topic.
I have put a lot of energy into eating healthy and being more active. At first, it was due to a breakup and of course you go through this revenge phase, or I’ll show them I what they are missing. That lasted about a month and I lost 10 pounds. But the healthy habits have remained. Without effort the weight is slowly, continually coming off. I am defiantly moving toward that old feeling of liking yourself and feeling attractive. I’m even running around in shorts, I never did that before...
What I love about myself:
-My salt and pepper hair
-My blue eyes
-My Height and general size
-My large hands
Congratulations on the weight loss, Bxrs. I too am trying to become more fit, and it is a slow-but-steady process. I'm not doing because I don't like my body, but rather because it will enable me to more more of the things I like to do with my body, with greater ease (you know--biking, climbing, etc.). I guess you could say that I like my body so much I want it to be able to enjoy more stuff.
Things that make me really like my body:
My feet (my partner thinks their really cute)
My earlobes (weird, eh?)
Thanks Dial. Hey, it's important that she thinks those feet are so cute. Keep going after those goals!
07-30-2003, 03:12 PM
the beauty in me is always there to see....
my heart, my soul, my mind, my attitude....
on to physical things....
I think my smile is pretty....
i love my blue eye's....
i'm getting used to the grey in my hair.....
I used to bleach it out....every 4 weeks..lol
i love my legs....
i think my nose is beautiful....
my breasts........yeah....i think they are gorgeous!
(k) (k) (k) (k)
07-30-2003, 10:05 PM
I like the hair in my nose. They're nice and short. It's the only hairs on my body that I don't have to trim.:$
07-30-2003, 10:15 PM
I think I have good (butch) hands, and I have good hair.
07-30-2003, 10:52 PM
i like my hair. when it's shaved it looks lighter which i like and i love my little flippie in the front.
my lips. perfect for trumpet playing.
my freckles; they're cute and i learned to like em.
and my head even tho it's really small but it's cute too.
07-30-2003, 10:59 PM
GREAT IDEA FOR A THREAD!
reminds me of Ani Difranco's song, imperfectly..which i find inspiring. lemme think, umm.
i have always fluctuated in weight, and have always had problems with my self esteem because of it.
but ive always loved my big green eyes and full eyelashes. my full, thick lips and my broad, but nicely shaped nose. my long blonde/brown hair, with natural highlights.
oh and i have the cutesttt feet in the world. they are tiny and cute and full of character.
and i love the way my clavicle bones and collar bones and all of the area above my breasts looks, they kind of stick out, but in a good, i always looked good in dresses and tops with pluging necklines because of it...and it is balanced out by my big breasts.
thanks for starting this thread, it just made me happier with myself tonight and brought a smile to my heart. its so hard just bein a girl and loving yourself for who you are sometimes these days, isnt it?
07-30-2003, 11:00 PM
My butt- it's big and shaped rather nicely
My hair- it's long and soft and likes to touch my butt!
My feet and hands- they are just the right size and let me do lots of wonderful things :)
08-03-2003, 10:06 PM
I can relate to your story.....
I used to have a problem with my weight....and you know what worked for me.....???
I started going for 5 mile walks every day 4 times a week.
AND.....i starting drinking more water.....currently i drink up to 1/2 gal of water a day....i need to increase that....
It's amazing how much water our bodies really need.....
try to get some regular exercise and motivate yourself to increase it weekly.....pretty soon you will be hooked on how good you feel and the need for water....
Keep the positive affirmations going about yourself....
You are beautiful....we are all beautiful.....
Something my friend once told me.....
YOU believe in you.....I believe in you.
That inspires me still to this day. We all need to be believed in.
Your aspirations and dreams and attitude in life is so important.
Best wishes and great luck 4 U!(l)
08-05-2003, 11:41 AM
Actually I already drink at least 1 gallon of water a day...and I mean AT LEAST. Its a greattt habit for anyone to get into.
08-05-2003, 06:23 PM
I've got great full lips and perfect teeth that have a slight gap between the 2 in front. (i wish it were a little bigger)
I've got great hair--it's long and dark.
My thinish ankles.
My huge breasts.
...to name a few...
08-05-2003, 06:38 PM
hey feminist princess....
great job on the water deal....
now i'm motivated to drink more!
take good care of you.....SBD43
08-11-2003, 03:56 PM
I think I have beautiful eyes
I like my hands too
I like the shape of my ass... even though it could use toning up
08-18-2003, 01:22 PM
I love my fet and their little toes. And the fact that I have a freckle on myring toe on my left foot. It makes it look so cute.
I love my hair. How I can change the color to mach the season. OR my mood. I love how long it is and the many things I can do with it.
I love my hands. Plump fingers that can make things with beads and some string. The way they can make a dinner just perfect for my butch.
I love my nose. And the stories of when I was little and would rub it on the pillow everytime I turned my head. And how lil it is.
And the best of all is I love ME. I love everything about me. Wheather it doesn't look right or not. Because I'm the only one there is. I'm a one of the kind.

08-18-2003, 02:24 PM
One person responded to this thread and said they don't have trouble really liking their body...but do have trouble patting themselves on the back...I agree...I too have that difficulty...
I love my body now...I didn't always...but I'm aging quite gracefully...
I love the moles on my long toes...
I love the tiny freckle on my top lip...
I love that my hands are elegant...
I love the long wide scar across my abdomen...
I love my extremely unique birthmark...even tho I can't see it...
I love my smile...and my smile lines...
Thank you again P & C...what a wonderful thread!!
12-10-2003, 08:10 AM
I love the shape of my eyebrows.
Big Lucious Boobs.
I love my hair...even when it doesnt cooperate.

I love that my body works pretty well, but frankly, I don't much like the "look" of it.
I do like my feet, and I used to like my hands a lot, but I've noticed lately that they are getting kinda wrinkled... eek, old age is creeping up on me!

by William Shakespeare
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
04-10-2007, 03:49 PM
The thing I like best.............
The fact that I've never had a cavity (33 yrs. old).
Damn, NYC flourided water must work.

04-10-2007, 05:42 PM
I'm just disgustingly happy with the whole damned thing. My childhood nanny would have said "you're stuck on yourself, girl", and it's true. I'm of the opinion that, being stuck with myself, being stuck on myself isn't such a bad thing.
04-10-2007, 07:05 PM
My hight, when I was younger I hated that I was tall. I always wanted to be small and petite. But I was never that I was long and lanky and it took me years to find my grace and style. In fact there are days that I can still trip over the flowers printed on the carpet but I have learned that being tall can be a beautiful thing and I am proud of all 5' 10" of me. :)
