right, but thats the thing i had a problem with. the picture/commentary below is still encouraging people to seek external confirmation and be happy with their bodies because of how others will see them. yes, everybody should feel as though they are lovable and desirable, the picture shows a thin stomach as undesirable for one person and then shows a fat stomach as desirable. this is just the same as showing a fat body as undesirable and a thin body as desirable. you cant try to increase the confidence of one “group of people” (even though fat people aren’t exactly a GROUP) by hurting another, and you certainly shouldnt base the entire “be happy with who you are” thing off other people’s perspecives of you!
hairs on one side of my hair parting thingie and put it on the other side and then pretend the other side of my hair is the Dark Side (even though all the hairs on my head are the dark side b/c my hair is black) and that the Dark Side seduced those hairs over to its side and the side it was previously on was like BETRAYAAAAAAAAAAAL and then to battle them i whip my hair back n forth
actually i just started doing that today
but im gonna do it a lot more frequently now b/c its fun
but only for a lil while because then ur head gets dizzy and achy
oh man i am so incredibly sorry!!! im facepalming for overlooking such an important fact! you’re completely right, and i really hope i didn’t spur any ignorance with my statement. clearly i didn’t think it through enough. i feel absolutely awful! i certainly meant no harm, but obviously what i said is very offensive. ill remove it immediately. thank you so much for graciously letting me know, and again, i truly apologize. and to anybody else who read that statement and was hurt and offended by it, i apologize to you! i should have considered that right away and it won’t happen again!
and thats very kind Anon, i hope you have a wonderful day too!!!
today when i heard my cell phone vibrate i thought it was my kitten purring
i don’t have a kitten
cool it was interesting to interwebs-meet you and talk!
heres a nice lil quote by Amber Riley
“I was very skinny when I was little, and I got made fun of for being really skinny, so then I started to eat. Then I got fat. Then I got made fun of for being fat. If they don’t like me when I’m skinny and they don’t like me when I’m fat, I may as well find where I’m comfortable.”
i think this sums things up pretty nicely, separate from all the health talk we did
and on a health note, heres a great article that i really think you should read
hope all is well on your end! take care
the reason i tagged my posts “fat phobia” was because our conversations were completely relevant to that area of study. fat phobia is not the fear of fatness in the traditional “ahhhh monsters!!!” sense of the word fear. its a relatively new term referring to the disdain towards and rejection of fat body types. fat phobia is ONE factor that often contributes to why girls adopt eating disorders such as bulimia or anorexia. my tags weren’t some curtained attempt to call you fat phobic, they were just a good way to get my words read in the fat acceptance community.
since i don’t see you bringing up any points i haven’t already spoken about, i don’t know what more to write. i’ll just say that nobody is afraid of stepping on fat people’s toes. people have been insulting, degrading, and calling fatness an “epidemic” for years and years and years.
there are those who “overindulge”, but as ive said several times before, this is not limited to fat people, and not necessarily true of fat people. you are an example of this! that is NOT to say you’re gluttonous, its to use your example that no matter how much you may eat, you remain at the same ninety pound weight. and ill say this for the last time—promise. EXCERCISE in moderation and HEALTHY EATING is what should be promoted, not the ‘ideal body type’. so yea. and idk what you mean by being a bitch. its just a discussion and you were being civil so dont worry about it dawg!
i’ve been responding to this a lot! nobody should be attacked and nobody should be judged based on their weight or BMI. why would i ever support people being bashed based on their body type?! that is not what fat acceptance or body acceptance is about. it goes right across the body spectrum! fat people should not be crucified for being fat, and thin people should not be crucified for being thin. people should simply be respected.
that’s why, as ive mentioned before, this whole “real women have curves” thing is total bullshit. a woman is a woman when that is what she identifies as (and thank you to the gracious Anon who corrected me on this point!!!) the point of fat/body acceptance is to get rid of these ridiculous standards.
if my BMI numbers showed me to be underweight, i would consult my doctor and ask whether or not i was facing any health risks, and if some sort of action was necessary. there are so many factors involved. age, bone structure, height, and genetics are a few of them—and to overlook them and simply take the BMI numbers at face value would be doing myself a disservice.
body health is an extremely personal thing. it’s completely ignorant for others to make assumptions about you, your personality, your background, your eating habits, your excercise schedule, etc. based on your body type! whether someone is mocking a thin girl, claiming she has an eating disorder, or a fat girl, saying she’s lazy and gluttonous, it’s all hateful and disgusting and unsupportable! healthy diets and moderate excercise are what should be promoted, not ideal body types and what the “end goal” should be, although this will probably never change. unfortunately the diet industry can’t be dismantled overnight. what we can change is our perspectives and try being more accepting as the consumers and the people being advertised to.
thanks for asking!
id like to thank YOU for thanking ME! thats very kind of you. im trying.
however, Tumblr is after all a public forum so extreme points of view are to be expected! but you have to try to see Tumblr as it should be to show it what it CAN BE. lolwat? Angel didn’t say that in Angel: the Series i do not know what this plagiarism nonsense you are waving in my face is
