"Body positivity is bad cause it’s glorifying obesity"
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.

Omg last night was such an adventure (good and bad). I hardly ever get to see my bestie, and we had been planning this get-together for the longest time. We spent most of the day shopping and eating and catching up which was awesome 😊
We were gonna go to Davis nightlife but then we were like omg let’s go to the Temple nightclub in SF! (and since I don’t drink I’d be the DD of course).
So we get all cute and fancy and on the way there we stop at a toll booth and hand the guy a $20 (it costs $5). The douche says, “you want your change in ones?” HURR HURR HURR how hilarious he made a stripper joke.
And then we get to SF and long story short, after walking around in high heels trying to find the place, it was closed for construction. Uggghhh.
We kept walking trying to find another place, and then drove around, and by then it was so late that other clubs had huge lines and we were sad and just drove home 😭
I feel bad for the poor children you will brainwash as a teacher
Intersectional feminism and body acceptance coming to a child near you starting August 18th!
It is ILLOGICAL to conclude that, because he stole cigars (if that even happens to be true), he deserved to be murdered.
The fact that there are so many white Americans sitting on their couches and watching the Fox News ‘robbery’ clip and feeling better about what happened because they believe he stole something, is frightening.
I try to answer 15 messages a day but I still have over 1,800 messages (and counting) in my inbox and it’s at a point where it stresses me out to know there are so many nice messages I haven’t replied to so if I’ve ever let you down by not replying I apologize :(
Well my summer is almost officially over. Waaaah 😭 But I start teaching on Monday! So that’s exciting. I also feel like its time to switch my hair to dark brown again, so yeah maybe I’ll do that soon
do you have any wedding pictures?
Yep I’ve posted some of them a couple times :)
im all about having more body posi media but not when the message is “boys like curvy girls” because who fucking cares what boys like
we praise men for the most trivial shit like “omg he buys you pads and chocolate!!!! hubby material!!!”
