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.
want this moment burned on my eyelids
So many girls saw this. Bless.
All hail the queen.
Let this sink in. She declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of white women who decided they werent feminists like katy perry and then her husband and child, the things feminists evidently don’t have, wete cheering on and gave her an award
For those who were wondering if I was affected by the Napa earthquake, thankfully I wasn’t. The hubby and I were out of town when it happened, but our home and pets are fine (other than some stuff that fell on the floor). Freakin Napa— a huge fire last month and now a 6.1 earthquake!

okay but like, whatever?? sorry for thinking that 9 year old girls going on diets and wanting liposuction is a bigger deal than fat girls in crop tops??
I’m staying pretty busy over here at the elementary school 📝 👍 It should ease up after this first week though. I hope everyone is having a fat-tabulous week so far! 😉
🎶 I’M ALL ABOUT THAT BASSic right for fat people to not be discriminated against or seen as valuable only if they appeal to the male gaze 🎶
Reclaiming the word fat was the most empowering step in my progress. I stopped using it for insult or degradation and instead replaced it with truth, because the truth is that I am fat, and that’s ok. So now when someone calls me fat, I agree, whereas before I would get embarrassed and emotional.
