Anonymous said: Why are you confident as a fat person? I just don't get it. I'm nowhere near your size but I still scrutinize everything about myself. I think I'm fat at size 6 and hate it, but what are you? A size 18 and you think you're hot as hell. I just don't understand it.
You sound really, really confused. Almost like you’re a Physicist staring at someone walking on the ceiling in utter bewilderment. Like this plane of reality has been violently disturbed or something.
SO lemme break some shit down for you.
My place as a fat person (especially fat woman) isn’t supposed to be in a place of self hatred. Your place as a size 6 person isn’t supposed to be from a sense of superiority bred out of thin centric idealism either. And I’m not, in any sense of the term, your inspo porn or a hub for your collective misdirected frustrations to be slung at rooted in a, mostly, misogynistic power structure that tells who is and who isn’t supposed to lucky enough to be deemed beautiful and desirable….
but also as a woman, while thin women do have privilege, at the end of the day this is a system that seeks out to attack and dislodge your every insecurity and then feeds on it for your entire life, because as women our worth is told is contingent on how fuckable we are to the masses. And even as a thin woman, this system is built to still make you feel inferior.
Now lemme share an idea with you before you go off trying to make the confidence of other glorious fat girls feel misplaced and taboo…
our place as people, especially as women in relation to each other under the thumb of this fucked up world, is to recognize our worth and ability to recognize that worth is not threatened by the fabulousness of another woman. Trust me, there is enough space in this world for both of us and I see no reason why we can’t indulge in that space together instead of tearing each other apart.
