fat gene

Arctic Inuit and Native Americans carry a specific genetic adaptation for severe cold climates. It allows the body to generate heat from a specific type of body fat. This gene, from Greenland Inuits, was compared to DNA from ancient Neanderthals and Denisovians in a recent study. The results suggest that the genetic advantage came from an archaic, extinct hominid population, probably related to Denisovians.

voltron bob’s burger au i’ve been talking about with @vodka-aunt-coran

  • allura is bob
    • this is because she’s probably better at cooking than shiro (remember that one official poster they released a while back where they all made cookies and were wearing hunk’s headband? her cookies were much better than shiro’s)
    • this is also because because she’s not exactly the maternal type but all the kids still love her and have more fun with her
    • allura’s burgers
  • shiro is linda
    • he says inappropriate things at the wrong time (”my wound is great! getting bigger all the time”), makes jokes that no one laughs at, and while he deals with the kids more one-on-one, allura is still the favorite “parent”…tell me how this man isn’t linda (besides how he doesn’t sing)
  • keith is tina
    • originally i was going to make lance tina but nah
    • they’re both awkward
    • i hc them both as autistic
    • while tina has a thing about horses and butts, keith has a thing about cryptids…and also butts, probably
  • hunk is gene
    • and no this isn’t because they’re both the food guys and tbh bob’s burgers handles gene being fat better than voltron does with hunk. who knew an adult swim show would be less fatphobic than a “”progressive””” children’s cartoon :))))))
    • this is actually because they’re both my favorites
    • also because??? they’re both so positive. the life of the party. everyone loves them.
    • also i can see older gene’s humor being closer to hunk’s
  • pidge is louise
    • they’re both crafty lil gremlin girls
    • need i say more
  • lance is jimmy jr
    • reasons:
      • the dancing
      • the butt
      • keith pining after him
  • coran is teddy
    • aka allura’s friend that comes in everyday and eats a burger and sometimes gets involved in her and her “family’s” personal life
    • “uncle teddy” = “uncle coran”
It’s hard to say you love your body and that you can get the guy and the part you want, when you can’t get the guy and you can’t get the part.

A word about waist trainers

Yes, they give you a slimmer waist, but they only give you a slimmer waist while you wear them.  

Corsets never really went away; your bra is a direct descendant of the corset, and girdles and spanx and other ways of shaping women’s bodies have stuck around ever since the corset as we know it went out of fashion.  Waist trainers are just the latest incarnation of that.

Modern-day corset wearers in the vein of Dita von Teese and lingerie enthusiasts have their own waist training- but it’s meant to make a slimmer waist in your corset, not to give you a permanently smaller waist.  

Finally, I’ve been told that you can use a corset to make your stomach smaller and curb hunger- that is disordered eating.  If you have to go to extremes such as tight-laced corsets to lessen your hunger pains, you need to seek help.

Big boobs and big asses come with big waists, and small waists come with small boobs and small asses (unless you’re willing to go the surgical route).  The only way to effectively shrink your waist is diet and exercise, and you have fat genes, you can’t fight nature.


Swing Kidz, another promotional piece aimed at the children’s market.  Lindy Hoppin’ swing dance kids and jazz band.  Hey Jason your digital is showing….. Yea I know, and i’m ok with it because these children’s samples were supposed to be faster and more fun than my usual stuff, so it’s all digital.  For kids art I always get too detailed and render too much so this is an experiment of sorts.  I did miss using good ol’ pencil and paper, I just can’t recreate the subtleness and energy of using a pencil.  I found myself trying desperately to recreate the energy of my pencil sketchbook thumbnails.  The digital experimentation will continue as long is it keeps being fun.  Fun is also stuff like naming your photoshop layers Lil’ Fats Waller, Lil’ Gene Krupa, Lil’ Mingus.  I kinda like the version without the lights too.

You no life asshole. Making fun of fat people. I bet your just a scrawny no life bully. Fat is beautiful, go die in a hole. I became fat because of my genes, it's not like I had a choice. I bet you're one of those people on r/fatpeoplehate. Fuck you


  • I bet your just a scrawny no life bully. 

You should probably know that I’m a 639lb lard-beast myself, also caused 100% by my genetics (muh mcdonalds).

  • Fat is beautiful 


  • go die in a hole 

Thin privilege is being able to die in a hole, go die in the grand canyon fatty.

  • I became fat because of my genes it’s not like I had a choice.

I like fast food too, but probably not as much as you.  

  • Fuck you 


i’m a firm believer in ‘the fat gene’

so when someone says to me

“omg ur not fat dont say that omg”

it is actually the same as if they had said to a poc

“omg ur not black dont talk like that omg”


i was born this way

it’s not a bad thing at all

i was meant to be this way

i inherited these looks and genes from my mother and father and grandparents etc

the same way someone of color inherited their skin tone

it is a huge part of who i am

it is massively part of my identity

telling me that i am not fat is rude and in the end..



wow…. looking at the picture on the left (April 25th) and seeing it next to the picture on the right (June 24th) makes me so fucking happy. 

the difference between these two pictures?

in the the one on the left, i weighted 216 lbs.

in the one on the right, i weight 198 lbs.

i have lost nearly 20 lbs in the span of 2 months. and to say that I’m happy would be a huge understatement. for anyone that knows me or my family would know that we are unhealthy. my dad is borderline obese, my mom is overweight, my aunt is deadly obese, my grandpa was overweight, and many people in my distant family are/were overweight. so the “fat gene” runs in my family. so me getting to the point of being overweight wasn’t a shock to anyone. however, my family wanted better for me. my parents tried to get me for months to go on a diet and i didn’t want to. i just felt “if I’m this fat already, why even bother trying to lose it?”  

finally, in May, i slapped myself and told myself that i needed to lose weight. its not healthy to be 19 and overweight. so i told my dad i wanted to go on a strict meal plan diet, feeling that if i have structure, it will be better. that is how i joined Jenny Craig. my consultant is literally the sweetest person and helped me get on the right track. 

now trust me, it wasn’t easy. it was probably the hardest thing i could do. but i stuck to it. i followed all the rules and didn’t cheat and overcame the hardest 3 days. when i got weighted in after the first week and saw i lost 3 lbs, i was SO HAPPY! cause it meant that it was working and i was doing well. my family tells me that i look thinner and look good and I’m not out of breath all the time anymore and i just look BETTER! and there isn’t a word for the happiness and joy i feel. 

I’m finally happy. i finally did it.
