RBI focuses on using expressive writing, design-oriented work, photography, media, research, and community input to fuel fat positive, body acceptance, discussion, and outreach. Our goal is to redefine the way we view and think about body image, size, fat, discrimination, health, fitness, wellness, mental/chronic illness, stigma, and other related topics.
We are constantly redefining our own perspectives, and therefore tend to write a lot about our personal experiences. Many followers and contributors are living with anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphic disorder, depression, and a variety of other body image disorders or mental illnesses, so please be respectful and remember that health applies differently to everyone. Any and all potentially triggering content will be prefaced with a trigger warning.
RBI supports all races, genders, classes, and sizes. We try our best to make this a safe space for everyone. If we are not doing our job or checking our privilege, we invite you to please inform us.
Some of the artwork you see here has been created by our founder or moderators, some sourced when applicable. Please be kind enough to source this blog whenever you share it's content.
We are not health professionals. Any and all advice provided on this blog is supported only by our own research, studies, and personal experiences; nothing more.
you are absoLUTELY not ready for this jelly so just go away before it hurts you bro
SRSLY THOUGH do you see how I am shaped??? To every fucker who told me that a ~*~genderqueer body~*~ is a super skinny flat-chested flat-butt body… do you not see this?? Do you not see my dad’s big strong surfer’s muscles running along my biceps? Do you not see my mother’s big broad shoulders? Do you not see my grandmother’s tiny waist? And my grandpa’s big round belly? Do you not see my mother’s insane hips? Do you not see my aunt’s calf muscles and my uncles short knobby legs?
Do you not see the wonderfully awkward and also seamless cut and paste of all of the men and women in my family that this body is? My body is a delectable genderfucking sculpture and if you are missing the point you are missing out so hard.
