Researcher Looking for Self-Identified Fat Young Adults of Color
Fat studies researcher looking to pay $10 to self-identified fat young adults of color for interviews on fat identity, sexuality, race, and the Internet.
My name is Philippe Fradet and I am a graduate student at San Francisco State University in the Sexuality Studies program. I am seeking participants for a study with self-identified fat young adults of color who currently live in the United States. I’m looking to interview people of any gender and sexual identity, of any socioeconomic background, and of any physical and mental ability status. Interviews in this study will focus on four topics: · fat identity, including self-acceptance and personal histories; · sexuality, including sexual identity, sexual practices, and sexuality as a fat individual; · race, including the interactions of race, fat identity, and sexuality; · and the Internet, including how the Internet is used to build community and support.
If you are interested in participating in this research or if you have any questions, you can contact me either by email at email@example.com or by sending me an “ask” or “submission” on my Tumblr (fatdisid.tumblr.com) with your Tumblr account.
When you contact me, please let me know a bit about yourself and your interest in the project. In order to participate in this study, you must identify as a fat person of color and be between the ages of 18 and 25. Participants will be given a $10 gift card to Amazon.com for participating in the project. All interviews will be conducted using the voice chatting or phone call features of Skype, which means anyone in the United States is welcome to participate. Your name and participation in the project will be kept confidential, and you can contact me with any questions. I will be posting any pressing questions about the project on this blog.
Thank you for your interest!

Every Thursday we run a feature on Chubstr called Answerland. It’s basically a way for us to answer some of the questions we get from readers on a regular basis. The questions we get cover everything from food to fashion to sex.
Last year, the amazing Hanne Blank asked me to write a blurb for the revised edition of her book, Big Big Love. If you’ve got questions about love, sex, or intimacy as it relates to being a person of size, I definitely recommend this book. You’d be hard pressed to come up with a question that isn’t somehow addressed within its pages. Learn more about the book at Chubstr, and follow Hanne on Twitter.
So you’re probably looking at this and making fun of my outfit, right? Anyway here’s all you really need to know about today; if… you’re fat, dumb, sexual and a guy, you’re OK. If you’re a girl, not so much. Please tell me that’s changed in the future. & somebody please tell me you’ve got love figured out, because I got news for you; it’s pretty darn messy right now. But I guess it has always been that way. Wanting to be loved, to find somebody that makes your heart ache in a good way… feel understood. So… if you’re robots, or aliens, or something and you’re watching this right now and that feeling no longer exists; well,… you missed it…and I feel sorry for you. ‘Cuz as far as I can tell, that’s what it’s all about. And that’s what I know it should be about.
So like, I’m fine at playing along with the “girl talk” and whatever you call that when you’re all “OMG I would soooo do him. He’s fucking HOTTT” but then when we’re being real with how and who I’m attracted to it’s different because I feel like I have to really know someone and connect with them before I can really develop any romantic/sexual feelings. And then this leaves me in the awkward pool of being super confused because I can’t tell if I’m trying to befriend someone, or if I’m crushing on them.
Then there’s the awkwardness of last night where I may have had someone outwardly say they were flirting with me. But it was a joke. And idk. I’m usually the type to be like HAHAHA NO LIKES ME EVER so I don’t even think it’s possible. And on one hand, maybe I’m leading them on (though things felt awkward when I left, so that may be done) and on the other hand, maybe I want to lead them on because I’m attracted to them (but I don’t know if I can and I don’t want to be an asshole).
For basically all my life I’ve never had crushes returned so the idea that maybe, just maybe, I’m not completely delusional is putting me in a weird state.
Two recent films, Nymphomaniac and Concussion, spend ample time exploring the marginalized sexualities of their (thin) female protagonists. Joe (Charlotte Gainsboug/Stacy Martin), the titular character of von Trier’s epic, labels herself as a nymphomaniac and constructs her life around her insatiable libido; Abby (Robin Weigert), the heroine of Passon’s directorial debut, is a lesbian who subverts her life as a mainstream upper middle-class homemaker by involving herself in sex work. Both women have fat sex partners over the course of their respective stories, neither of whom function as a source of comedy or disgust.
It’s taken me a long time to fully love my body. Since the age of 10 I’ve hated not being a size 0-5. I’ve never been the petite/thin/skinny girl. My body has always been thicker than your average. Now, at the age of 23 I can say I’m so in love with myself. Yes, I may not be where I want to be size wise but I’m definitely not too far. This photo goes to show that even with belly rolls I still love my skin. My body is my God given temple and I love every stretch mark, dimple, scar, and fat on it.
can’t tell you how much I love ghost dog characters, especially madarao, kouya and
Hakubi. these characters from the kekkaishi anime where really a huge gay and homoerotic inspiration but when I saw some art by one of my favorite artist and friends hectorthewolf, that was the point when I found that I love seeing there’s character ridiculously fat and in very sexual situations.
it started a back and forth with me and hector that spawned two or three trades, all with those three as big fat asses an everyone of them was awesome. it’s inspired me to try and make a comic about there fatty adventures.
but I’m still trying to get my speed up to the point I can make comics of this level of art but for now enjoy the solo pic of my second favorite blubbery beefcake ghost dog.
K you know the chorus of 'Fly Before You Fall' by Cynthia Erivo that goes, "I hear you loud as a bomb, wanting a shoulder to cry on, I hear you tumbling fast, here and now, you're afraid, don't you worry I'll teach you to fly before you fall" ... yeah your blog feels like that to me sometimes. I just really want to hug you and all the sistas relating experiences on this blog 😭😭😭 ❤️️💙❤️️💙❤️️💙 fragile, resilient, urban, sexual, fat, thin, nerdy, badass, or w/e etc. BLACK GIRLS WE RUN THIS

When I told her that I was Bi, my mother asked me “How do you know? You’ve never been in a relationship before, and you don’t go to social events to get to know people. So how can you be sure you’re gay?”
And the truth is, I don’t know. I’ve never had a relationship, and I’ve only gone on one actual date (blind date) with one guy. I don’t know if I could ever find someone who could love me for ME, be it man or woman. But I want to hope that there is someone who can except that I’m fat, that I’ve got Autism, that I’m not a generally happy person.
Ah, I got it, sorry it took some time to realise, you keep your blog pg, only tasteful selfies or things you admire, nothing sexual, got it. (Though not saying fat positive things are sexual, just that I guess it'll get the attention of the wrong kind of people).
exactly. I mean most chubby guys take them sexually, which is what I try to shy away from. I’ve got children that follow me after all haha. I apologize for getting so defensive.
Senior year starts tomorrow! Thankful for the great summer I had. Met so many friends had a fair number of adventures and got tan (v important). Time to get fat, sleep deprived, and sexually frustrated! LOLOL JK (not rly)
