“…But more importantly, you are a gift, to all who know you, whether or not they realize it. If they don’t, they are blind. You have a special place in this world. All you have to do is find it. Do not give up on yourself, on the truths you have realized. Do not give in to those who would crush your dreams like nutshells. And never turn away from forever love.”— Burned by Ellen Hopkins
Why were they following you in the first place if they had "fatphobia?" Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and say I idolize your patience and persistence. With all the anon hate, I'd have cussed someone out and/or deleted the blog by now. I'm glad you haven't though(:
Aww thank you! Yeah people can be so mean!! But I promised myself, even hate mail would be posted for you guys. I won;t hide anything, and if I’m wrong, I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m doing this for you guys, and I have a lot of people behind me. Sometimes I get very discouraged, not gonna lie, but There’s no way I can stop now. I love you guys way too much. Thank you so much!!
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! :)
