And, listen, we all do weird stuff to our bodies. This is not a judgment on anyone. But I’m also not going to pretend like a huge portion of “fat acceptance” hasn’t really only meant “curvy women with flat stomachs.”
While I understand what you’re getting at, I wouldn’t say that a “huge portion” of the movement is about “curvy women with flat stomachs.” Perhaps that’s how the image of FA has been tailored to appear in media given the shape/size of plus size models. But if you take more time to delve further into the community of FA on tumblr, you’ll see fat/plus size women of much more varied body types.
I wanted to do a plus-size pinup in a confident pose but an outfit no more revealing than a bathing suit and somewhere in the coloring process, it became a self-portrait.
It’s challenging for me to post this, especially since I know that members of my family may find this post uncomfortable, but I’m very proud of how this piece came out and I want to explain a bit about it.
At the risk of getting a little personal here, I want to explain this transition: I’ve always struggled with my size and my perception of myself, as many girls and women do. It wasn’t until summer last year that I realized how much of my personal identity comes from my size and how I am proud of who I am, even if I would like to get to a healthier weight. It has been a struggle for me, coming to terms with that part of myself, but being able to let go of hating part of who I am has made me so much happier overall and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

HOT DAMN. okay. im done.

Think of the starving children in africa </3
You know, he’s right. I should think of the starving children in Africa.
To make donations to UNICEF and the two million children at risk of starvation in Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somalia, follow this link. Every penny counts.
These children are starving and dying because of corrupt and inadequate economic, political, and environmental systems surrounding the production and distribution of food.
It really isn’t a joking matter.
And my losing weight and being thin won’t fix this issue. Only a concentrated world effort to alleviate the suffering of these people will do that.
So again, Please donate to UNICEF.
Cadenza. Marry me ? Like, for real and shit. Please ?
