I’ve already got one volunteer - Sarah from Bring More Yarn has offered to come on board. I think we will start off with her, and if needed, add more. But I will make an announcement when that time comes!
Are we a “social justice” blog? I suppose we are? I don’t know? We are what we are and that’s all that we are. :3
As for the rest of your message…
I recently found this blog and I completely love it. Upon first glance I thought it’s purpose was to show the beauty of larger bodies, but it didn’t take me long to realize that the purpose was to show the beauty of ALL bodies.
I do not look like most of the women pictured on this blog. I am thin. I’m very thin; my ribs show and my collarbones stick out. I eat a healthy diet, and I indulge.
All the time I get people telling me that I should be completely happy because I’m thin, and I get people telling me I am too thin and that I need to gain weight. Everywhere I see people promoting the beauty of curves, yet putting down women for being too thin or for not having curves.
What I love most about this blog is that while it celebrates the beauty of curves, it also celebrates the beauty of every woman’s body. It does not tell thin women to gain weight or fat women to lose it.
It says exactly what I have thought for a long time: I am healthy, so why shouldn’t I be happy with my body? Even if I’m not happy with my body, why is that anyone else’s business? I guess what I am trying to say is thank you for creating an incredible blog.
I am going through a lot of old submissions and messages (I am so so sorry for being so behind, but I promise we will try to get through everything!)
Thank you, so much. I’m so glad that you have taken away everything I hoped to accomplish with RBI and so very grateful. <3
You submitted just fine, dear. Thank you for sharing and I’m so glad we’ve been able to help <3
This is what I fucking live for, right here. I sometimes do wonder whether or not my relentless raging fat-bitch shouting is getting through to anyone. I think I know it is, because I’m seeing a reaction and I’m sensing something happening, but I never actually know. I honestly just appreciate this so much, my heart is bursting. Thank you.
