Name is Autumn. 23 y.o. Napa Valley, CA. Birth doula, fat acceptance activist, happily married feminist, college graduate, student teacher. Find me under auaulynn on instagram :)
me: joins tumblr for fun
me: starts to critically analyze almost every aspect of modern society
Normalize fat women’s bodies. Normalize public breastfeeding. Normalize home births and midwives and reproductive autonomy. Normalize body hair on women.
Reject the notion that women are to be regulated and controlled and pressured to conform to societal standards.
Generally children are born in hospitals for safety/cleanliness reasons, it’s an assuredly sanitary space with doctors everywhere.
"Assuredly sanitary space"

Finding a mermaid costume in size fat is harder than I expected. Even finding materials to make my own has been difficult and now I’m running out of time. This is my first year that I’m going to an actual adult Halloween party and darn it I just want to look good.
welcome to the FEMINIST CULT, today we’ll talk about terrifying topics such as BEING NICE TO YOURSELF and PROPER SEX EDUCATION
Some people think that because I’m both a fat acceptance activist AND a school teacher, it means that I don’t want any p.e. in my classroom. Of course, this is totally false. Being a fat acceptance activist and a school teacher means that while I’m encouraging my students to run their fastest mile, I do not tolerate students bullying others for barely being able to run a lap; it means that while I’m leading students in doing jumping jacks, I won’t put up with students mocking others for not being able to keep up or for having their fat jiggle. Being both a fat acceptance activist and a school teacher means that while I encourage and support physical activity in students, I do not do so at the expense of other students.
I wonder how feminists will react to this
Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs
Actually this is a very common idea among feminists
It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.
If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL
I have been having the absolute best time with this class…
except for today :( It was a really rough day for me.
I don’t want to bore my body posi followers with all my teacher posts tho, so I’m considering making a side blog where I can enthuse about, and vent about, my student teaching experiences. We’ll see if I actually do it tho, or if anyone would even be interested in it.
I wanted to make I post I could link too whenever someone asks me this~
Seriously. Even if I was hella in shape, really healthy, no one would be asking for health or work out tips from me if I was fat. Stop assuming because someone looks like what society deems as ‘healthy’ or ‘fit’ that they are, it’s a lie, they are try to sell you things and make you hate and judge strangers. Stop buying into it.
Something to add,
even medical professionals cannot judge people by their looks, which is why mri machines, and x-ray machines, are a fucking thing, but lazy doctors and lazy people will resort to ‘You just need to lose some weight,’ as any advice to any aliment a fat person may have, which is bullshit since being fat isn’t always the deciding factor in health.
and to be frank, more people are gonna get this message cause it was said by a thin person, if a fat person wrote this it would just be reblogged with fat jokes, claiming op is making excuses, and faux concerns about health and claims of ‘glorifying obesity,’ And all those people who disagree with the message, ask yourself why. You are basically a successful, obnoxiously complacent product of a massive brain washing, being perfectly groomed in hating others who don’t look like what you’ve been told is proper and human and you have been taught that pretend empathy and backhanded concern is better then a real genuine understanding.
Which I suggest you fix.
Thinness does not equal health or beauty, and the belief that it does has cost a lot of fucking lives.
Can you explain more about why you're against spanking? I agree, I'd just like to hear what you have to say.
- it is hurting someone
- your child, specifically, who should not be hurt by you of all people
- it doesnt work in the long term
- it develops trust issues
- it is reliant on fear, and teaches them to be afraid instead of actually learning what they did and how to self-discipline (i.e., “mommy spanked me when i tried crossing the road by myself, so i shouldn’t do it in front of her so i don’t get spanked” instead of “mommy told me i could get hurt if i cross the road by myself, so i won’t do it”)
- it asserts the ideology of stronger = right, and that because someone hurts you they are correct
- it shows that violence solves issues, which causes your child not only to normalize violence, but to partake in it
- it disregards bodily autonomy (as in people not touching you without your consent)
- it hurts their self-esteem, as well as affects their mental health, and their intelligence
- it becomes a gateway to harsher abuse due to desensitization
- it creates detachment of the parent/child bond
- it normalizes degrading and harmful behavior on the parent’s end
- it continues on the cycle of abuse
- it’s just overall shitty don’t hit someone, especially not someone who is smaller than you, defenseless, and VERY easily affected by it ok just don’t
