"Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be. - Lisa C. Knisely"

As a fat woman I am constantly bombarded by images from the media and my peers about what I can’t do because of my weight. All these assumptions are falsely based off the blind ideal that if I’m fat I must be unhealthy and unfit. I tried paddle boarding recently, something I’ve always wanted to do but my weight prevented me from because of fear of judgment by others. Let this post be a reminder to challenge yourself to do things your uncomfortable with, and if you fail get right back up and keep going. #yestofatwomen

Anonymous asked,
It really isn't heat, you just get really worked up over things that may have the slightest bit to do with healthy/skinny people. I'm a fat girl, I am. I know where your coming from with the pure hatred of the way society labels heavy girls. But by throwing shade at something that merely has to do with weight loss, you're no better than the rest of society.

Oh, friend. :)

Anonymous asked,
Nicki uses their products, and they probably paid her damn good money to have a water bottle in the shot. I'm all about loving yourself, and whatever. But if you're so threatened by a water bottle...you may have some more deep rooted issues other than just weight acceptance. I mean the song literally says "fuck those skinny bitches"

Hahahaha, see! ^^^ Heat.

Yeah, so her message is, “fuck those skinny bitches, but also become one through the proven results of MateFit teatoxing!”

I’m neither for or against the song. Merely pointing out another element that can be examined.

Keep loving yourself, and whatever.

I’ll get some heat for this, but I feel like it’s an important part of the dialogue cropping up about this song, and I’m not seeing anyone else make mention of it.

This is a screen shot from the Anaconda music video.

See that pink bottle there? That’s what you call product placement. When an artist has some sort of endorsement deal with a product or service, they make sure to plug it as much as possible, including putting it front in center in their music videos. Make no mistake, that logo is legible for a reason.

And what kind of product is MateFit? A WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCT.

Seems pretty skinny-friendly to me.

One thing that always gets me about the whole “you’re not oppressed if you can change X thing” is… even leaving aside whether or not it can be changed, who cares? Over here in the UK, the city of Manchester started recording attacks against members of subcultures (like goths) as hate crimes, because they noted that violent groups specifically targeted them for their subculture. Even though the identifiers for that - clothes etc - can easily be changed. BECAUSE ATTACKING SOMEONE FOR BEING DIFFERENT - NO MATTER WHAT THAT DIFFERENCE IS - IS AN ACT OF HATE.

"Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?


And does that suck?


But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege."

I feel so incredible in my skin*~*~*

I feel like I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m doing it again because I am so thankful to see bodies that look like mine somewhere other than my mirror. It helps me so much when I’m feeling down and self-destructive, especially since this person is such a babe!
