Q: I don't know why you allow so many fat people on your blog. It basically says it's ok to be fat. And when I am trying to diet, to get rid of my excess holiday weight, the last thing I want to see is rolls of fat from woman posting their nudes right, left and centre - even if I unfollow you, others reblog. It's not ok to be fat, strive for skinny.

asleepylioness:

Let’s break this down.

1. The selfishness exhibited in your comments is extraordinary. My blog does not exist for you so frankly, i don’t care if you’re trying to exercise  and eat well - that has nothing to do with this blog. If you can’t maintain your will power because of images you see on this blog i’d suggest you get off tumblr. 

2. Nowhere, ever, have  i said that it is ok to be fat. I think it is ok to realize you have one body, and you might as well love it. Loving it should mean keeping it healthy. However, i’m not in the business of telling other people what is healthy for them - i am in the personal business of affirming humans and hopefully giving them a push to fight whatever inner demons they’re facing. 

3. To paraphrase J.K. Rowling, if fat is the worst insult you have to shout (anonymously, mind you), than you ought to redefine what is well and good and of value in your world. 

4. What is pleasing to the intelligent eye goes beyond trivialities like skinny, fat, black, white, blonde and brunette. 

5. Please unfollow me. Clearly all that striving for skinny couldn’t afford you a little class. 

6. Strive for Skinny. Be Healthy.

I’m reminded of a quote I saw here on tumblr the other day-

Traditional FA [Fat Acceptance] arguments have relied on the idea that the way to diffuse these hateful statements is to prove that fat isn’t necessarily unhealthy. But by doing so we’ve ceded the premise that health status is, in fact, grounds for hating or despising someone. And as long as the tiniest statistical correlation between fatness and whatever-disease exists, we’ve lost the argument, because we diffused the wrong bomb: we should have rejected the idea that it’s okay to hate people for being ‘unhealthy,’ period.

I’m saying it- IT IS OK TO BE FAT. ALSO BEING UNHEALTHY DOES NOT GIVE SOMEONE THE RIGHT TO THINK ANY LESS OF YOU.

What is happening here???? 

Honestly… this is such bullshit. 

"I’ve never said it was ok to be fat" UHHHH WUT?!?! WHY ISN’T IT OK TO BE FAT?!?!? 

And why must everyone be HEALTHY!?!? 

People are worthy and beautiful because they ARE. We are all perfect expressions of ourselves.

This is so mean and condescending. Acting like you’re affirmation is there so you can help people fight their demons? That is so incredibly ridiculous. Support should be given to people because they are people. There should be no caveats or veiled attempts at saving someone with your affirmations.

I know some people like to fly this flag. Most often I hear the argument that “Its about heritage NOT hate.” Well, what heritage are you displaying? I suppose you could argue the “heritage” as this image of the southern belles, southern gentlemen, a world stepped in traditions and grandeur. A time when the south stood tall - a Camelot long gone as the result of the Civil War — but then I want you to ask, on whose backs was that fantasy built? 
This flag represents southern belles, gentlemen, plantations and a glorious southern cities, all of which profited from slave labor. This flag represents an idea and a system where only certain people had rights and privileges. It was a time when many of you reading this could have owned me. You could have raped me and been within your rights as an owner. You could rip me away from my mother and sold me, and been within your rights. You could have beat me until my back was raw, and been within your rights. You could have pulled my children out of my hands and sold them, and been within your rights. You could have killed me. And then your biggest upset would be your loss of property and revenue. That is how much I would have been worth in this “Old South”. There would be no protests. I would have just been another dead n*gger. 
 It still boggles me that people defend this flag and fly it as “heritage”, and to me it displays an ignorance and blinded privilege towards a dark history. When I see this flag being flown, I do not see “Southern Pride”, I see an auction block, lynch mobs and a noose. As a black person, I wonder if I am really in a safe place.

sure we’ve never had a woman president, the majority of politicians and CEOs are men, a woman needs a masters degree just to make the same money as a man with a BA doing the same job, rape cases are grossly under prosecuted, and we teach young girls that they’re “asking for” rape based on what they’re wearing

but let’s talk about the REAL issues like how some woman on the internet is selling a coffee mug with the words “male tears” printed on it
