Removed the gifs associated with this post because it’s a big long photoset and I didn’t feel like clogging up my blawg, but here it is.
i don’t really get involved in fat politics anymore, but man i’m seriously sick of seeing this girl all over my internet. i’m sick of her speaking for fat bodies and being heard over said fat bodies. the fact that this gifset alone has 8K notes makes me wanna puke. fat people have been saying this, exactly this, for 50+ years. but until a thin, conventionally attractive white person says the same thing, thus validating it, no one listens. sorry guys, but this is horseshit.
I could give a fuck less who posts it, who says it, who makes it popular, who makes it into gifs, or who screams the loudest about it; it’s all about the message, not the messenger.
Shaming a woman who is using her voice and audience to express body positivity is insane. Devaluing her opinion just because HER BODY is conventionally attractive is just as bad as only valuing the opinions of conventionally attractive people.
lol privilege and systematic oppression and good allyship are just a joke then i guess silly me
Passing this on while I form some thoughts…I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. Anyone else?
