  • If you are followed by a user named phoneoperatorbs, block and report them immediately. They’re a fat fetishist who follows fat positive blogs to use as porn. All of their likes are fat fetish porn. Their follows weren’t public, so I can’t warn any specific blogs they’re following. What disgusts me the most is that they have the audacity to have this post on their blog:

    They are not safe for fat people at all.

  • That post that’s like “body positivity failed because fat people were demanding we date them oh no so horrible” always makes me so mad especially when I see my mutuals reblogging it.

    Body positivity failed because thin people hijacked the movement and made it all about them, not because we prioritized romance over respect. It has always been about respect for us and us feeling normal.

    I would argue that respect is a precursor to dating, as in I won’t date you if you don’t even respect me, but thin people won’t even give us that. This movement is still getting its feet under it because of thin people and placing the blame on us is a horrible thing to do.

    If you blame the failure of fat activism on fat people and not the thin people who shut it down whenever possible, you are part of the problem.

  • Can we talk about how toxic formerly fat people or people who have had weight-loss surgery are to individuals who are comfortable with their fatness. They use “well i was once fat” to actively push the notion that fatness is wrong and you should feel bad for being fat. Making claims that well “if i can do it, so can you”, like no you did it because your doctor and society force fed you that you can’t be healthy or happy being as big as your are.

  • I’m sick of talk of feminism centered around complete avoidance of all things marked as traditionally feminine. I loathe the realities of beauty culture and the gross expectations placed on girls while they’re still children as much as many of you. I hate knowing that many women leaving their house with shaved bodies, styled hair free of grays, and at least mascara and concealer (if not a full face of makeup daily) feel that they have to do that to be regarded positively in the world, because their worth should still exist with sparse brows, frazzled hair, and uneven skin.

    But I hate even more how, in the same breadth as a woman will talk about loving oneself and supporting other women, she’ll comment how another woman is “pretty stuck up for someone with a face like that.” Or there are the women who talk about how they feel it’s empowering to ditch makeup, but they’ll still sneer at other women who comfortably choose to not shave their bodies (“ew, that’s dirty”). I could go on about double standards entailing fatphobia, where simple outfits are celebrated on a smaller body and called “lazy” on fat bodies, or how trans women get a lot of shit for not “trying hard enough to pass” in a world where we supposedly want to get rid of ridiculous beauty standards altogether, or how women will mock other women who are single just moments before they gripe about how their boyfriend behaves (and ironically expect the woman they just mocked to listen to them vent).

    Sometimes, adapting to the standards of femininity are survival; sometimes, putting on a little makeup and doing similar things is about dodging the cruelty other women spew while they claim to be “super feminist.” Those of us who either identity as women or have been raised as such, regardless of our gender, listen to women around us speak about other women, and we hear the hypocrisy. So, before you go off about the women who choose to look feminine or shave their legs or pay a lot of money to get their hair done, double check how you actually treat other women. Because for a lot of us, our efforts have become a matter not of surviving men and their cruelty, but surviving the very women who claim to have our backs.

  • I fucking hate those eating disorder posts that are like “Don’t worry! You can eat! No one thinks you’re fat!” These posts don’t fucking help anyone because you’re still saying that being fat is bad. You are still supporting that disordered thinking and spouting fatphobic bullshit. And even more infuriating, WHAT ABOUT FAT PEOPLE WITH EATING DISORDERS?! How the fuck do these posts help them?! They ARE fat, and they need to know that there’s nothing wrong with it! When you put fatphobic bullshit in recovery spaces YOU ARE ACTIVELY HARMING OTHER PEOPLE WITH EATING DISORDERS. Can we stop fucking focusing on skinny people for five minutes? Please?! I am so fucking tired of this bullshit disguised as “recovery.” Being fat is okay, knowing that is the only way you’re going to recover, and you’re being a selfish piece of shit by pretending like you’re helping when you’re hurting everyone instead, especially the fat people who are oppressed and most affected by this while also being the least likely to receive help. Please think about others for TWO SECONDS. PLEASE! I hate thinspo people, and I have had it with the majority of skinny people with eating disorders who act like their fatphobia is excused because of a mental illness.

    Sincerely, a mentally ill fat person with eating disorders :)

  • Diet culture is terrifying. My grandmother’s caretaker has obsessively lost weight by disordered eating because she hates her fat. She can’t eat whole food groups. Now she’s apparently getting surgeries to remove “excess skin” after losing weight. I’m afraid because not only should she not have to do this, but everyone gains back the weight they lose. What’s going to happen to her when she gains back the weight after removing her literal skin?

    Too tired to message every person. The fat fetishist’s url is Oluapsod. They’re using your blog as porn. Please alert any blogs you know on this list who don’t want to be used as porn.

  • i just think its funny how when a skinny woman promotes body positivity she’s called kind and an inspiration for all women but when a woman who weighs anymore that 130 pounds talks about body positivity she’s promoting an unhealthy lifestyle and needs to shut up and go to the gym

    Please block and report this fucker. They literally followed every single fat positive blog I had suggested in a post I made for fat positivity resources and then followed fucking thinspo blogs right afterwards. My blog and the blogs of others will not be used for your shitty hate. Get the fuck out of here, you fucking bigot.

  • If you ever doubt intuitive eating, I can tell you right now that it works. I walk through aisles of soda, chips, cookies, etc. and don’t buy any of it because I don’t want it. If I do want something (which is rare), I don’t buy a lot of it because I don’t feel worried. I know I’m allowed to eat it, so I can have more another time if I want to. I crave a lot of “healthy” foods. I want vegetables. I don’t eat a lot of food in general because I only eat what I want. Intuitive eating is the only real way to actually eat, and it’s messed up that diet culture has taken it away from so many of us. My diet is still affected by my disorders—my anxiety about money due to childhood poverty, my phobia, my OCD—but those are just things I have to take into consideration. Intuitive eating is food liberation. It’s the path needed to fight fatphobia. It’s the weapon we can use to end eating disorder culture and the suffering that culture has forced in our lives.

  • Does anyone else feel gaslighted about their romantic experience because of their weight? I don’t really have a problem attracting romantic attention (good or bad) but I feel like I always have to defend my experience because, as a fat woman, some people can’t believe I would receive ANY attention at all. Or they believe that anyone who does give you attention has a fetish. It’s frustrating and leaves me questioning my own judgement which has put me in bad situations. Like, I’ll feel uncomfortable by someone’s attention but I still have this voice in the back of my head that says “don’t be so vain. He’s probably just being nice. Why would he be attracted to you?” So instead of setting a boundary, I just ignore it because I’ve been conditioned to disbelieve my own gut.

  • I’m taking a nutrition class to fulfill requirements of a BSN program and the language my professor uses around body weight and the human body’s survival mechanisms is so bizarre

    She said, “Unfortunately due to a process called lipogenesis our body stores excess glucose in adipose tissue” IS it unfortunate? Isn’t that a way we survive???

    #diet cuture #anyway its hard to learn when Im distracted by value judgments like this #fatphobia

  • NOT TO MENTION the fact that most people’s instinct when they’re bullied or harassed is retreat into things, some of which include binging or other unhealthy things. so much for caring about health, buddy
