Say something... positive
by gracieandtherealgirl: I just love your blog!! I have been working on issues of body image through my art and I wish I could feel as easy in my skin as you do. I am getting there. One day at a time. In the meantime I am working on self acceptance and society’s distortion of beauty through a new media project. www.graciekendal.wordpress.com I would love to know what you think.

justanotherrayofsunshine asked: Why do people assume that by telling someone they are fat that they are doing someone a favour?

That complete arsehole who I couldn't give a toss about and means nothing to me and has nothing better to do...

thisisthinprivilege: It’s thin privilege to not have to worry that people will assume you have low self esteem if your arms are covered, when your arms are covered cause it’s chilly. Thin privilege is not having to worry that people will assume you are a sloppy loser if you are running weekend errands in yoga pants… New blog detailing aspect of thin privilege, for your brains.
