Fat can be as pretty as you make it. It's just another trait that people can have. It's absolutely fine to have your preferences. But just because a person is overweight, it does most certainly NOT equal unattractive. Skinny people can be attractive and also unattractive. The same goes for fat people. Body shape and body size are such petty, small things to judge by.
You should know that opinion is generally not held by fat-allies and fat-acceptance movements, it is in fact largely considered fatphobic. However, I appreciate that you are trying to make tumblr a more body diverse place.
Look, I’m fat, and personally I’m okay with it. But if it got so out of control that I could no longer bathe myself, or walk on my own, in my opinion, that’s a problem. For me. Now, if someone is so obese that they cant move but they are okay with that, then I am more than okay with it. because that’s their own decision, and I want everyone to be nothing but happy. So, yes, I myself would never want to be in that position, but if that’s your cup of tea, by all means…
Fat-Allie or not EVERYONE has an opinion. Just like the blogs that encourage you to stay fit, but going overboard with it and becoming anorexic or bulimic is not healthy, but if its what you want, go for it.
Hi, do you accept submissions? Also, as a fat woman I'm offended by "fat isn't always a bad thing." um, it never is... fat is never a bad thing.
Well, if you’re so overweight you can’t walk or take care of yourself, or your health is just all around bad because of it, that’s when I feel it’s not such a good thing anymore. But, that is my opinion, and I apologize if it offends you. Anyway, yes my dear, submit away! :)
This blog is sometimes the only reason I feel I can leave the house in the morning, being body positive is something people who don't fit the mould have to work on every single day. We need to undo the idea that skinny is the only way to be attractive and worth something. Keep doing what you're doing, I think you're truly wonderful.
Ive been following this blog for a while now and I think its nothing short of amazing. Im plus size myself and I want nothing more than to to love me for me. I know I should think my body is beautiful and amazing, but I cant help but to think Im disgusting, even with all the drop dead gorgeous women you display. Any advice?
Go look in the mirror. No matter how hard it is, find at least one thing you absolutely love about yourself. it might be your smile, or your cute squishy thighs! Then find another, and keep working at it everyday. You are unique, You are beautiful, even if you cant see it, truth is truth.
we dont need to accuse anon of having anorexia or being a health freak. and "real" girls come in all shapes and sizes. from what i understand this blog is not about one size being better or prettier than another size. fat activism isnt about shunning other body types. we should encourage people of all sizes to feel beautiful and confident. accusing or attacking someone for having anorexia is the same as attacking someone for being fat. health and confidence across the board people!
While I agree that being obese isn't healthy, it's not the FAT that's not healthy, it's the HABITS. If you're on a diet but you're still 275 lbs, you're healthy, because of what you're doing for yourself. Also, I don't think you're telling girls that being fat is healthy or good or whatever, you're telling us not to hate ourselves, that "fat" doesn't mean "ugly" and on our road to discovering ourselves, to never, ever think we have less worth than someone else just because we have more body.
It is not saying “fat girls get fatter.” It is saying “fat girls, don’t hate yourself.” It is letting people know that they do not have the right to make us feel like shit for how we look. It is to tell us to put away the measuring tapes, get up from kneeling above the toilet, enjoy little bits of chocolate instead of entire bars because someone just went out of their way of making us think that we’re worthless and disgusting. This is a blog with a message of love: that we are lovable.
It is to show off that we can be beautiful too, look awesome in our clothes, are pretty and have style. Some of the most beautiful girls with the most beautiful smiles I’ve seen are posted on this blog.
You wouldn’t tell a body-positive blog full of pretty, well-dressed skinny girls to stop posting. So don’t come here and tells us to stop posting either.
