My little sister was in tears today because she was wearing her hair naturally to school. She told me that she didn’t want to because people at her school always made fun of her or laughed at her when she did (including her friends and teacher). She said that she hates her hair and that she wishes it wasnt like how it is. I tried telling her that people would kill to have hair like hers. She didn’t believe me and said that no one wants hair like hers and that she hates it. We live in a predominately white neighborhood, so shes used to seeing white girls with flowing hair. She feels as thought their hair is prettier than hers. I know this is a bit stupid and all but, could you guys reblog this and share some positivity so that I can show her that she is loved and that her hair is beautiful and she should never be ashamed?
Fat bodies are either forcibly desexualized, often being made a mockery, or hyper sexualized, being reduced to a simple closeted sexual fetish. But not my body. My body gets me up everyday, gets me to work, my body heals me, my body works wonders, my body gives me all the life I need. My sexuality is undoubtedly linked to my body and it’s beautiful form. I will not be reduced to a fetish, and my sexuality will not go muted or be made a punch line in media.
