I hear people say “oh my god I hate people” all the time without backlash. everyone knows they don’t hate every single individual in humanity. they have friends and family they love and hang out with. they simply hate the greedy, corrupted, oppressive nature of some human beings.
but the minute we say something about white people or men, no one seems to understand that it’s the same concept.

I think my face has a sort of sensationalizing effect on my pictures, and that’s okay usually because I love my face and it’s great. But I wanted to take some pictures without it because I want other fat and/or black people to relate. The “pretty face” fat thing is still a large issue within the body positive community.

Beautiful-faced fat people are so important, but our revered presence tends to alienate those who feel they don’t make the face cut. The same applies to fat people with medium to smaller bodies on the spectrum, and I realize that that’s where I fit in these days. I don’t deny that privilege that I have, but I hope people larger than me still see some features they can relate to. Not to mention, when we do see very personal pictures of nude fat bodies, they’re overwhelmingly white.

Anyway, I saw a post involving feelingswithbrandy and pardonmewhileipanic that spoke on an issue about representation of fat-related features on bodies that people feel they alone have because they don’t see it documented frequently, if ever, in the body and fat positive community.

It got me thinking that I wanted to show myself to other fat and/or black people in hopes that they can relate. I usually wear clothes because I like style, but I wanted to serve a slightly different purpose. So here’s a series of pictures of my body with some large deposits of back fat and some visible deposits of side/under boob fat or whatever it is. I cropped out my butt because too many fetish-having asshats lurk, and I’m sure they’ll still get to these but at least not all of me.

I love this photoset so much it hurts.

explaining anxiety is the fucking worst because you feel like an idiot for being bothered by the things that bother you but it’s such an intense fear right at your core so you have to go through all of these other levels of yourself to try and get someone else to understand it

do not let white academia fool you into thinking that

  • every great philosopher came out of europe
  • mathematics and science were at their highest point when used by white men
  • the most beautiful city in the world is paris
  • colonialism was a golden age
  • europe is the pinnacle of civilization

So…what’s up, white academia? Where’s the accolades for them?

sociolab:

Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes?  That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood.  Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.
