» Post mentions that feminism should advocate for bodies of color, differently abled bodies, bodies of transgender people, etc
» I respond, adding that feminism should advocate for fat bodies as well.
» Thin girl responds “let’s change fat bodies to all kinds of bodies” when other non-normative body types have already been mentioned.
The trouble is, this always happens. A fat person says “well, what about fat bodies?” and people with respond with “lol what? gross, no. fat bodies are unhealthy. i mean. they should embrace themselves, but not obesity, lol.” (Actual messages I have received before, by the way.)
So fuck that. I’m tired of people saying I’M BODY POSITIVE for thin pretty white girls. Or I’M BODY POSITIVE because I wanna fuck hourglass-shaped chubby girls. Or I’M BODY POSITIVE unless you’re 300 pounds because if you can’t love your own body, why should I?
All of that is bullshit. We need intersectionality. We’ll fucking die without it. So no, when a thin girl comes along and says “I want to change your post about specifically advocating for fat bodies to being about all*~*~* bodies” WHEN OTHER BODIES HAVE ALREADY BEEN MENTIONED, I am going to take offense to that. I’m tired of being erased. I’m tired of feminism erasing people. Fat bodies are important, and if you don’t agree, then get the fuck out.
