Recent purchases OOTD.
A group of girls in Primark today were sniggering behind my back for looking at crop tops today and commented on the fact that ‘fat girls shouldn’t be wearing that kind of thing.’ So obviously I bought two. Tell me that I don’t look amazing.
Everything here is from primark in an 18 or 20.
(Also, I have a really stupid face)
“Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems.”
Great thing to glorify…wtf.
Not saying you shouldn’t do what you want with your body but glorifying obesity imo is just stupid.
“I’m not telling you what to do with your body”
Well, you kind of are. You’re also clearly hi-jacking a post where someone is detailing being mocked and trying to use this as an opportunity to feel good about their self. How fucking dare you. You’re not a doctor and you think copy and pasting of WIKI FUCKING PEDIA like that is the be all and end all of anything gives you any credibility?
Fuck off, you self righteous wanker.
Also, serious wardrobe envy. This person looks amazing!
Yah Know these days it just kind of amuses me when people get all serious about the ‘Glorifying Obesity’ thing. I mean used to be, any time fat people were shown in any kind of normative situation? A TV show featuring two fat people in a relationship (Ie: Mike & Molly), a fat athlete accomplishing some achievement (Kelly Gneiting completing the LA Marathon) or a fat pop star telling the world she has no problem with her weight and then daring to go do what pop stars do (Beth Ditto does a nude cover of Love Magazine), there was always some outraged individuals who’d shriek incoherently, ‘THEY SHOULDN’T SHOW/FEATURE THAT!1!!!11 IT’S GLORIFYING OBESITY!!!!1!2!345’
Of course. Allowing fat people to appear in any kind of public forum is dangerously irresponsible because it will make skinny people WANT to be fat… Or portray fat people as normal?… Maybe, it’ll make fat people not want to be un-fat… It’s a conspiracy thing… I think… Or something.
Utterly ridiculous is what it is. And, happily, lots of fat people are taking the piss right out of this idiotic concept by adopting it, using it wholeheartedly to illustrate just how ludicrous it is, pointing and laughing at the people who still think it’s a thing, and the whole time proclaiming it ours. Fuck the haters.
My Obesity is Glorious.
Because telling fat people that they are in fact humans that deserve dignity and respect automatically means you’re ~*GLORIFYING OBESITY*~
By the way, don’t dribble on to me saying you worry about a fat person’s ‘health’. That’s just a bullshit excuse to voice your unwanted opinion on a fat person’s body considering you wouldn’t give a single flying fuckadoodle about someone’s health if they were skinny. Besides another person’s health is none of your damned business anyway. Run along now and preach to a choir that actually cares.
I’m going to be honest, so long as you’re not hurting anyone, you can eat soy sauce and milk duds all day long for all I care.thank you so much for this comic imp.BOOM! Why I Glorify Obesity ereyday.
See how it sparkles?
Because the ballet tag features too many people of only one body type. Let’s not pretend you need to be a certain weight to be able to perform fouetté en tournant.
This is for my mom, who told me when I was seven years old that I was too fat to be a ballerina.
Wow. I had body image issues for years partially due to doing ballet for a decade. This is wonderful.
Also, it’s sweetly ironic because Russia’s most famous ballet company is called the Bolshoi Ballet—the Big Ballet.
So very beautiful.
I wish something like this were available for me in my area. I miss dance terribly.
