plus size acceptance

candygarnet  asked:

god i hate this website you reblog from one person without knowing their opinions and people are like "wow i didnt know you hated trans people :/"

I know right? I’m just “hey cool I like this post that got circulated through tumblr and onto my dash I think I’ll reblog it” and instantly I get “YOU’RE A TRANS HATING MONSTER” … I checked and the post I reblogged was about plus size acceptance. How was to know who reblogged it prior to me? I’m a fat girl looking for some acceptance in the word. Geez.

“Winter’s coming up, so get a fat girl to keep you warm at night!”

Go get yourself a sweater, cuz I’m busy. #RealTalk #SweaterWeather #CuddleWithYerOwnSelf

be careful.

Not all plus size women are comfortable being called “FAT”

That word still bears a lot of hurtful memories for some plus size women who are taking strides to learn how to love their body.

For others the word “fat” is a sense of empowerment, it’s a powerful stance in the body acceptance movement, and they’re taking the word back.

However, some women are not comfortable describing their body like that. The negative connotation behind the word still discourages them and that needs to be noted.

If a plus size woman makes it clear to you that they are not comfortable with that word, and that the word hurts them please refrain from calling them that. Their road to body acceptance doesn’t apply to whatever set of rules you feel should be in place.

Be the Support System that your past self needed.
Don’t pay attention to the ones that berate you and focus on the ones that celebrate you! 

Happy Big Girl Appreciation Day!

There are times when life will be at its toughest, but those days will be overshadowed by the brightness of future days to come! XD

I used to worry about having my arms exposed. I would wear jackets and undershirts all the time. One day in middle school, my dad asked me “Why are you covering your arms? It’s okay to have them out.”
Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of reassurance from the ones you love to get you through tough times. XD

Don’t save your best dance moves for your bathroom mirror! Get out there and rock that dance floor! Shake them hips! Do those body rolls!

Sometimes, we lose ourselves by focusing on where we could be, instead of appreciating how far we’ve come. We all have different attributes and physical features that make us beautiful. I wish we would celebrate that more than making others feel less. Compliment a random stranger; Take time to make people feel loved. The world needs more kindness, not hatred.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! XD

Here’s to another year of joy, happiness, and positivity! 

We all have our insecurities. Belly, thighs, arms, hair, skin, smell. This year has been a body revolution for me. I can run, jump, work, make love, laugh, cry and so much more. My body is beautiful with its stretch marks, cellulites, fat and bones. It’s hard to find love for your body when society brainwashes people with fat shaming. 

You are beautiful and respected.
