(TRIGGER WARNING: fatphobia, body shaming, bullying, verbal abuse)

I’m the anon that submitted this post (http://chubby-bunnies.tumblr.com/post/105595850800/ive-never-seen-my-body-type-represented-anywhere) the other day. Sharing that photo was the single most empowering thing I have ever done, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to do so. I’m grateful that so many people read what I wrote, and that sense of empowerment was shared. I’m grateful this community exists.

Amongst all the love, my photo got some really ignorant commentary as well. “You have no right to the word flawless, your stomach is an insult to humanity.” This is my reply.

This is for every single woman who has ever been made to feel ugly, who has ever been verbally abused by strangers and family alike, who has given these toxic words validity by thinking maybe they’re right. You are and always were flawless.

Yes, Tumblr

Keep mocking very real mens issues.
Keep changing that post about unrealistic male standards.
Keep laughing about “fragile male egos”
Keep drinking from your “male tears” mugs.
Keep making fun of men/women who defend the gender you generalize.
Keep bullying women who don’t want to be called feminists.

Give me more reasons to not be a feminist.

(Awaits incoming “NOT DA REAL FEMINISTS” comments)

Here’s a reminder not to tell people to die or kill themselves no matter where you lie politically.

It’s not cute, it’s not funny and it instantly puts you at a low ethical standing, making any point you make moot anyway.

You never know what the person on the other end is going through. They could be suicidal, and you could be their final reason to go through with it.

Please do not take that risk when you’re playing with someones life.

The other day I was walking in the mall wearing a dress and thigh highs.

I felt confident and cute, and then I saw a mall security guy and my first thought was that he was going to tell me I was dressed inappropriately and I panicked for a second.

I’m years out of high school and I’m still afraid of being yelled at for dressing how I want and looking good. These are the feelings they’re creating in girls who then turn to women in society.

Girl: I just had a bad breakup with my boyfriend. Fuck all men, they are all the same! All liars and disgusting creatures!
Tumblr: You go girl! You don’t need a man! Stay strong, we’re here for you! Men are pigs!
Boy: I just had a bad breakup with my girlfriend. Fuck all women, they are all the same! All liars and disgusting creatures!
Tumblr: FUCK YOU, YOU DISGUSTING MISOGYNIST. Who the hell do you think you are? Just because one woman had the sense to dump you doesn’t mean all women are horrible! Die in a fire!

Feminists should focus more actual issues like the state of women’s health care in the third world, how there are no dv shelters for men, the inequality of sentencing when men and women commit the same crimes and so many other things.

Not whine about how people don’t agree with their ideology
