Savage X Fenty's New Men's Underwear Line Is Slaying The Game For Men's Body Positivity

Rihanna's Savage x Fenty is known for its body-inclusive lingerie. To top it all off, now they are selling boxers and masculine loungewear, too. When I first saw the ads for the men's line, I started to get a little worried because all I could find were pictures of model Christian Combs and all these men with rock hard abs. Cool, but where were all the other bodies?

Thankfully, I took a sneak peek at the capsule collection on the Savage X Fenty website and the men's line includes all bodies and races. That's right, Rihanna didn't let us down. Rihanna always includes a wide range of races, body types, disorders, and disabilities, it's genuinely beautiful to see and the guys really appreciate it, as well.

The new underwear is gender-fluid and inclusive of all bodies. It's refreshing to see companies break the boundaries of weight-stigma and represent models of all shapes, sizes, races, on their websites. This is what we need – confidence, diversity, and acceptance. The "big man representation" on the Savage X Fenty website is full of smiles, comfort, and fashion. It feels so real and I've already had conversations with some guy friends who finally feel like they fit in.

Just like all other genders, men are self-conscious, men are negatively influenced by society's idealism of "perfect" bodies, and men deserve body-acceptance.

Every single human being wants to be represented and when we can see ourselves in models, we feel accepted, wanted, deserving. This is why a diverse representation in companies, social media, and advertisements is imperative for public health. It's really quite simple, we are all gorgeous and shame has no place in our life.

I can't wait to continue to see how the fashion industry further represents all body types, genders, and races.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
