foolish mistakes, but whatever, they are all mine.
Mostly-cis, fat ,middle aged, bisexual, disabled, white femme. My hobby is seeing how many years I can add to my collection before I die.
Posting will be random but may contain fat acceptance, wool, and cats, lagomorphs and corvids in no particular order. Posting may also be sporadic as I have ME/CFS and a bunch of other stuff that makes me tired and some times crabby.

It’s on your conscience all the time
Wow. This is the first time I’ve seen this sentiment repeated. It was the response of a teen (or pre-teen) to being asked what it meant to be fat. That the ‘obesity’ cult, by making fat a sin, makes you feel like someone who’s doing wrong. Just by being. It becomes a matter of conscience, just like if you’d wronged someone.
The pressure can be immense. I can’t stand the trivialization of this as just like ‘thin shaming’. No.(via bumsquash)
I am 1000% done with fat activism that doesn’t include double chins, bodies that aren’t hourglass or “pear” shaped, or fat WOC (ESPECIALLY dark skinned Black women).
"Idealized Fat", "Acceptably Fat", "GOOD FAT" is still exclusionary and harmful, and causes a lot of us to continue to hate ourselves. If you’re going to teach radically inclusive self-love, how about you step it up on the representation.
