Body Positivity: The reasons why Galen loves Kassie

That’s Kassie!

Galen Alaks, Co Editor-in-Chief

Sometimes introspection can be deceiving. People can have skewed views of reality. However, this is not always the case. Take Kassie Ramirez’s recent article “Body Positivity: I love the way I look”. In this article, (which you should have read, for I’m sure it is as perfect as she who wrote it) Kassie talked of the reasons why she is such an amazing person. Although listed as an opinion article, this article is much closer to news. Because it’s true.

First off, let me tell you a story. There once was a person. Let’s call him Plato. So Plato was going along one day and suddenly got a great idea.

“Nobody’s perfect!” He cried. “That’s a great quote. People should quote me on it.”

Then he saw Kassie.

“Oh well,” Plato sighed. “I guess that one doesn’t work.” So Plato scrapped that quote and left it for Hannah Montana to later find.

In short, Kassie is a wonderful person. From work ethic to general charmingness, Kassie just excels at everything she does. She is bright and engaged in class. I may even go as far as to say that she’s fant-Kass-tic.

Above all that, what really makes Kassie remarkable is that she likes herself. Now I’m basically an expert at self-loathing, and it’s really amazing to find someone who is different from me in that way (and many other ways, hence the reason I’m writing this article). The fact that Kassie loves herself makes me love her even more.

Body image is a heavy topic, almost as heavy as I perceive myself to be (or maybe that’s not just perceiving). Kassie approached this topic, though, in a really unique and special way. I couldn’t help but smile as I read her article. If everyone thought of themselves the same way Kassie did, the world would be a much happier place.
In conclusion, Kassie is amazing. To wrap up with a quote from Plato, “there are three classes of men; lovers of wisdom, lovers of honor, and lovers of gain. Oh, yeah, and Kassie, who’s in a class all of her own. Less-than sign, three.”
