submission from maddylouboo: Hello! I wrote this a few days ago, and wanted to submit it to your blog a) because I adore your blog, and b) because I think it’s really relevant to what you’re doing here. I’m sure there have been discussions about this topic before, but it’s super important to me, and we need to keep talking about it! It includes a lot of my personal...
: Okay, show of hands- →
peroxidepirate: fattypolitic: How many people by now have no idea that eating more fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and drinking plenty of (unpolluted) water is better for you than processed food? I know it. Everyone knows it. What these arrogant shits who keep aiming to “teach… Oh my godddd thank you! Finally! My bf and I were trying to articulate our thoughts on that yesterday...
I was SO naked
from veronikerr: Hay girl hay. I had no idea you had this blog. I love every inch of it, every word! I wanted to share a little something with you I did this year, that I’m proud of and I’ve never done before. Every year we go to a “pirate party” of sorts and hang out with some of our closest friends. We always get two joined rooms, get drunk and have a good time. When...
Wanna know what bugs me?
from underwatergypsy: I fucking hate it when random ass people walk up to me and are like hey did you try this diet/miracle smoothie/ fitness program yet? Ok first off, what the actual fuck? When the fuck has it EVER been ok to just walk up to someone you don’t even know and point out something you think is a flaw and suggest ways to fucking fix it? Do you fucking think it’s ok...
Degrees of Fatness
sugaryumyum: I absolutely love you all and have no problem with you identifying as fat (as you are fat and it’s hella awesome) but please, for the love of all that is holy, stop acting as if your size 12/14/16 body has the same mental, physical, spatial, and societal issues as my size 32 does. You don’t understand. And it’s fine that you don’t understand! It doesn’t make you a bad person! As...
"I understand loving yourself, but being fat is...
hardly-wisdom: First of all, fat does not automatically equal unhealthy, but I’m not even going to get started on that because I’ll be here all day. Here’s my real question: So fucking what if it is unhealthy? You cannot use the “It’s unhealthy” excuse to try and stop fat people from being okay with themselves unless you also give shit to every single person who smokes cigarettes, drinks...

Tangled Up In Lace: Whiteness and Fat Acceptance →
tangledupinlace: I’ve been staring at this page for far too long thinking about how to put feelings into words and who I’m talking to and why I’m talking at all. Tumblr, sometimes I don’t give you nearly enough credit and sometimes I let you shake me far more than I’m comfortable admitting. You’ve given me heros… This sums up a lot of really important things and reflects the way I feel...
Your bad attitude is a health problem.
shakethecobwebs: [tw fat-shaming, sizeism, ableism, self-harm, death] Anon, when you state that you are “against fat-shaming” while, in the same breath, say that fat people need to address their health status, you are not only contradicting yourself, but you are showing that you don’t fucking get it. You are saying that to be fully behind the idea of fat people being treated as human beings,...
In Defense of 'fatspiration'.
eatingpaint: According to the media, according to a lot of people, I am a headless body. I am a specter drowning in layers upon layers of ‘flattering’ clothes. I am the boat, floating in a sea of small barges, lithe little vessels who out work, out do and out succeed me in every way. I am a mound of fleshy, ugly flab. Melting and oozing on to sidewalks, subway cars, airplanes, sinking and...
pandapath asked: In your research of weight and fat and fat-hate, etc, how many times do you come across the recognition of the food industry's part in this situation? Specifically, the fast food industry and processed food companies? In this CDC study, does it mention "Big Food" at all?
okc-misandry asked: I'm having trouble with the link for "Project Two Viral Messaging - “Weight does not dictate your health or your worth.” - in your "Go Viral" section. Can you check that? Great images. Lovely blog!
Fuck your fat-shaming propaganda.
therotund: dalyn-aurelius: redefiningbodyimage: Go ahead and keep telling me my body is wrong, because I know the fucking truth. I am fat. And I am healthy. So, fuck you. —- (This message brought to you by the frustratingly hateful, fear-mongering bullshit stemming from conversations on the Weight of the Nation series.) And what of those of us who are fat and unhealthy? We have no way...
Fuck your fat-shaming propaganda.
Go ahead and keep telling me my body is wrong, because I know the fucking truth. I am fat. And I am healthy. (And even if I weren’t, self hatred isn’t the answer.)
