“Today my darlings I bring you and anyone who happens by a few bits of advice for those just starting out in Fat Acceptance or just accepting themselves. I will be using Fuck Yeah Chubby Girls from Tumblr as part of an object lesson. Just so we’re on the same page here this is not at all a personal level indictment of the person who was running that tumblr nor of any of the posters. This is as Webster defines it: Definition of OBJECT LESSON : something that serves as a practical example of a principle or abstract idea”

— My Mama hat is on over at my blog. Go read, frolic.

This is brilliant and kind of covers my thoughts to a T. Especially:

Acceptance is not about any of the following:

  • Who will or won’t fuck you.
  • Who you will or won’t fuck.
  • Promoting or advocating any particular lifestyle, diet (as in way of eating), level of ability, health status etc.
  • Rejecting all other ways of being in a body. As in “Real women have curves” type shit.
  • Acceptance “in spite of” insert phrases like-“no boobs” “fat ass” “flappy arms” “big feet” etc here
  • You approving of anyone.
  • Anyone approving of you.

awesome blog post on fat acceptance! many good points, especially

I believe that if you are going to run something like FYCG and you present it as a space about body acceptance it is important to ask your contributors to abide by that. And if you are going to present this thing you’re doing as one thing, please remember that people pointing out the flaws in your presentation is not generally an attack on you individually.

god i love the internet for introducing me to articulate folk who are putting into words all my frustration and hope.

I love Stephanie, I love this photo, I love what she’s wearing. But honestly… how many people among us can spend over a hundred dollars on a plain skirt?
Talk about paying through the nose for our size.

This was the summer of last year. I used to be what was considered “obese.”  I still have thick legs but a smaller waist. I still feel subconscious about myself, but seeing your blog and all these confident thick women makes me feel like I have nothing to be ashamed of. Thank you. 

i thought this blog was supposed to be fat positive??? instead it is showing before and after pics of dieting??? what a fatohobic pile of shame.

Hey guys! That’s my second sumission, and I’m here because I have REALLY good news for my self, I lost weight! yaaay!
No, I don’t hate my body, I just started to have a healthy life, and now I’m not a 188 pounds, like I was last month…I’m a 182!
That’s cool for me, I guess, and I wanted to share with you, that being chubby is ok, but having a realley healthy life is better!
Kisses!

this is from a tumblr called “queerfathungry”.
like any self-respecting fashion-magazine-reading straight-girl i feel a little bit bulimic after seeing this picture of a deep-fried mars bar…
but look at the shirt! those are the neighbourhoods of victoria, british columbia. my old home. nostalgic!

HOLD UP! I am gonna call bullshit on this. I don’t think that it’s self-respecting to feel bulimic after seeing a picture of a happy person enjoying their food and loving their body. I will not be used as a cautionary tale!
Get this: I. FUCKING. LOVE. BEING. FAT.
I love how solid, strong, capable, soft, warm, foxy, hairy, bumpy, and badass my body is, and how well it carries my heart and mind through the world.
So you do your thing, and I’ll do mine, but I will not silently let this kind of shit be said about my body or my fatties. I mean, have you seen my blog? fer cryin’ out loud.
*note: I have no intention of implying that struggling with bulimia means that you defacto don’t respect yourself. I’m in solidarity with ALL fatties. <3

FUCK YES. THANK YOU
