Today’s Gender of the Day is: A 5,000 dollar crystal cat purse
If love my blog to be included in one of these one day!God, they’re soF I E R C E
can i just say
glorifying obesity is no better than glorifying anorexia
youre telling people its okay to be so overweight that you can have seriously health problems
no that is not ok
Get outta here with that shit.
The term Glorifying Obesity really needs to die out.
Because those who use this term are afraid of our confidence, are startled by our resilience, are angered by our pride.
It isn’t “glorifying obesity”, it is grown ass women (and men) being comfortable and happy in our bodies, despite how we are trained and brainwashed to the opposite. Any person who thinks the term “glorifying obesity” is funny and catchy and relevant, that person is actually terrified of us confident fat people. That person is trying to stuff us back down into the dark, deep hole we’ve safely been shoehorned in to our whole lives, is frantically trying to reaffirm his belief that fat people are bad and thin is good and superior, is terrified the cage is breaking open and the confident fat people are going to get loose and spread the fat love across the land and soon we will be out of control and suddenly his superiority and smug authority over us will be long dead and we will no longer be tamed, no longer be pushed down and back, no longer be subservient and content to live in the shadow but instead be tall and loud and proud.
He who shuns “Glorifying Obesity” will quickly turn into the shunned, and we will stand united against those who oppress us, against those who would rally against our confidence, those who would prefer we stay small and hidden and oppressed and forgotten.
Spread the word of body positivity and fat acceptance. All bodies are beautiful bodies and how dare anyone try to say otherwise.
How many of those bloggers have health issues due to their weight? Literally none? Oh.
The only nail polish for me
I am afraid of getting older. I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a day—spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote. I want to be free… I want, I want to think, to be omniscient.

Fat gut, no butt.
Big tits, sharp wits.
Lumpy thighs, piercing eyes.
Double chin, for the win.
Lots of love for the chub club.

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
did I say this… no. I hate when people health shame others, assume things about people’s health based on appearance, and also make people feel like they should apologize for eating anything other than “allowed” “good” foods because they’re “overweight”. for myself, my body acceptance, my struggles with health anxiety, I literally need to see fatties who aren’t afraid to be idk, normal people, who sometimes eat healthy, who sometimes eat “poorly” and just pretty much exist, that’s all.
I love this topic <3
1. Look at yourself naked. REALLY get in there and look. I know it’s hard for a lot of people to really see themselves, but the more you force yourself to look, the less dramatic you are about how your tummy rolls, or how your skin stretches. Once you get used to yourself naked - dance. Dance to Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Marilyn Manson, Backstreet Boys, Dixie Chicks, etc. Make yourself laugh.
2. Wear what you want to wear. If you wear all black, baggy clothes and band tshirts, but have an underground obsession with lolita clothes, mix it up! Start out with just wearing that cute frilly thing around your house until you get comfortable to wear it in public. Let yourself out of your box.
3. Dont be afraid of being unattractive. This one is a major truth for me. If you dont feel like getting dolled up every stinkin day, then dont be afraid to throw on those sweats, throw up the hair in a bun and go to target to buy fresh panties. Makeup and dresses can make you feel amazing, but sweats and clear skin can give you a certain freedom. This is the step that I struggle with the most.
4. Surround yourself with body positive people and blogs. They will help you the most. You can’t keep yourself in a closed bubble because your thoughts will get the best of you. Post selfies, explain your favorite outfit, envy other peoples outfits, share your tales of woe, give advice to other people. Having a community makes you realize that everyone, even if you think their body is perfect, has insecurities. You are not alone.
5. Its okay to feel bad about your body. Dont beat yourself up about having hateful days. You are not back at square one. Be progressive about your low-self-esteem. Take one thousand selfies and only post 2. Lady around the house and spread all of your makeup around you. Spend the day slathering as much on your face as humanly possible. Lay on the couch and watch reruns of Friends until you cry. Make a pillow fort. Buy a whole cheesecake and eat it until you feel like you are gunna puke. But remember that these days will pass.
I could think of a million more, but these are the most important.
bringin this back. I need it again in my life
