if that’s the impression that you got from my blog, then i’m going to assume you haven’t thoroughly gone through or read it.
this community welcomes submissions and stories and perspectives from all walks of life.
no one is “complaining” - this is a safe space for people (thin people, people of size, color, disabilities, mental and chronic health issues) to get shit off their chest, to yell and scream, to get emotional, to feel. to study their bodies and understand the way they feel about them in relation to a million different things.
of course all women (and every other gender identity - this blog is not focused on one gender) have securities and self esteem issues. there are dozens of perspectives represented here and all of them are different. body image issues exist in every kind of body and it is important to me to drill home the point that ALL bodies are good bodies.
i am a fat woman and activist, so yes, i think it’s important to address and fight against the fat phobic nature of our society. that is my experience, this is my blog, and i get to decide what to do with this space.
fat bodies are oppressed more than thin bodies. that doesn’t mean that the thoughts and feelings that thin bodies harbor aren’t valid - it just means they come from a place of privilege that was dictated by society and visual culture at large. we acknowledge that here. it’s pretty important. we actually have and do discuss these things at length.
so maybe do a little reading and brush up on the shit you’re trying to challenge before you start carelessly making accusations, kthx.
