I am not a skinny girl trapped in a fat body. My body is not “extra weight” or over my allotted allowance of size that I was meant to be. I am fat and probably always will be fat.
I have given up on the fantasy. The fantasy of having a different body. The fantasy of being thin. I used to have this reoccurring daydream that I was granted any wish I wanted, and my first one was to be thin and have long hair. Or anytime I saw a flat stomach, I would spend days thinking what it would be like if that was my body.
Now I can draw my own form without looking and don’t project other people’s bodies on my own. I feel like I am finally a tidy package, instead of this tall, fat, awkward disjointed person that I used to be. It took years for me to stop seeing myself as a potential thin person. To stop sucking it in and squinting at the mirror to see what I thought I wanted to see. Now I look at myself naked and I feel like a whole person. I feel like every inch of my body belongs to me and this is what I am supposed to fucking look like.

- You are beautiful. Not always and not to everyone, but we are all beautiful and deserving of love.
- You do not have justify your body to anyone. Not to your family, your friends, your doctor, your partners. It is your body. No one else’s.
- You are allowed to take up space. Use the world around you to your advantage. Be present in the world in as much space as you need to feel comfortable and safe.
- You are more than your body. You have emotional, spiritual, and mental worth. People might see your body first, but everything else about you matters just as much.
- You are allowed to change your body if you want to. You can gain or lose weight if it is your choice to do so. No one should shame you for either choice. You are also allowed to keep your body exactly the way it is right now, in this moment.
- You are allowed to be angry over fatphobia. You do not have to sit quietly and let those around you make you feel bad for your size. You can be angry, resentful, hurt, sad. You can speak out against fatphobia. You can reject diet and weight loss talk if you do not want to hear it.
- You can use the word fat. If you feel fat, you can use the word fat. You can reclaim it as a positive. You can use fat as a descriptor. No one can tell you that you are too small to use it. If it is part of who you are, do what’s best for you.
- You can love other fat people. You can make fat and fat ally communities. You can surround yourself with positive forces. You can make fat love. You can fat love yourself.
- You can wear what you want. Crop tops and short shorts. Mumus. Tutus and ties. It is up to you. Don’t let societal pressures like ‘flattering’ dictate your outfits.
- You can be fat. That is good. That is ok. That is a celebration.
I’ve been told my entire life that my body is wrong.
I’ve been told my entire life that I am ugly.
I’ve been told my entire life that I do not deserve love, and that even if I did, I would not find it.
I’ve been told my entire life that I’m not supposed to look this way.
I’ve been told my…
Start a revolution.
Stop hating your body.
Plus size femmes are always told to avoid horizontal stripes.
This is some sort of fashion “law” for fat womyn.
Fuck flattering. Wear what you want.
2. WE are angry at mistreatment by commercial and sexist interests. These have exploited our bodies as objects of ridicule, thereby creating an immensely profitable market selling the false promise of avoidance of, or relief from, that ridicule.

this is a stencil i’ve been working on, turning it into a papercut tomorrow, which’ll look a lot more polished than this (probably, eek!).
When you look under the curvy tag, there are lots of posts and pictures that are anti-thin. This is not the way to get people to recognize and appreciate people who are curvy.
We all know that THIN is IN nowadays. All the celebrities and famous people (hollywood and all) celebrate their fame by showing off, mainly, their figures. But, since we live in an ever changing world, i noticed that a new “trend” is rising.
QUEER IS THE NEW THIN!
Many celebrities are starting to come out of the closet because they know it is better for the world to see who they really are. Some still hide, maybe because of the fear of the medieval thought of persecution, but they’re on their way!
Here is a list of a few of my favorite QUEER celebrities whom I think have influenced the world a lot (more than what we thought a queer person could actually do).
Am I the only one who thinks this seems offensive and sizeist? I’m not loving this at all.
