Gay Couples In Cartoons and Kid's Movies

There’s a lot of people against this idea of putting gay couples in kid’s shows and movies, either because they’re scared their kid’s going to “turn gay” or they don’t want their young kids exposed to gay marriage YET. I don’t know how I exactly feel about this, but I can understand why some people want this: Because kids tend to be more accepting than adults, along with accepting whatever they watch in a cartoon. So if a gay couple were but into a cartoon, some would feel the child will accept that and gay marriage in the future. Heck, they have a gay couple in The Loud House. I haven’t heard any problems of it. And a gay couple was snuck into The Storks movie, but only for a split second.

This also goes for gay and plus sized princesses. People have wanted that too. For the plus sized, I don’t think that’s wrong. Because plus size ISN’T OBESITY, and people think it is which is why they don’t want it. And some kids are raised to be homophobic and think plus sized women are obese and unhealthy, or some develop that on their own. But maybe these enabled things, could teach kids to be more accepting of the different people they come across, if not already.

15 Charming Illustrations That Fight Fatphobia With Doodles And Flowers

Fat-positive feminist and artist Rachele Cateyes is fed up with [people’s] fatphobic bullsh*t. So she decided to draw about it.In her illustrated series called “ Glorifying Obesity,” the Portland, Oregon-native expresses how she feels about those who shame, harass and bully obese people for being fat. The illustrations are honest and powerful – pairing phrases like “Fat people don’t owe you shit,” with dainty flowers and hearts.

I love texture and print. Tweed, herribigone, and plaid are some of my favorite fabrics to work with. They add so much visual interest.

In this post, I combined that love into a 60s inspired look. I found great mod looking, Christian Dior sunglasses to build around. Then I did a block heel and a pop of color mini skirt to keep with the time period. I also used a vintage handbag to make it feel more authentic.

I noticed that in most reader inserts, unless it’s a specific Plus Size/Curvy!reader fic, all of them describe the readers body as skinny and having a flat stomach and a thigh gap. This is not true about all women. If we can put in substitutes for our names and hair/eye color etc., why can’t we do that for our body types? I say when we describe the readers body we put in (B/T) for Body Type!!!

Spread the word!
Repub if you agree!

Those of you that follow my blog, you know my affinity for dresses and skirts. I love them. There is simply something so feminine about that look that outside of winter you will rarrrrrrrely see me in pants.

For this post, I tried to mix it up a little. I styled this Elvi top with culottes from @asoscurve. I finished the look with light gray, suede sneakers from @kennethcole-blog to give it a more athleisure look.

Also, notice anything new about my hair? 💋💋

I basically have had “ants in my pants” with how eager I have been to post this look. My friend Peter shot this set Thursday and I’ve looked at it every day since then. It has been a long time since I felt this beautiful. 

Initially, I was afraid of this dress. I don’t really like to show off my stomach and it has a prominent cut out. I tried to shop around it and ignore it, but I couldn’t get the style out of my mind. So I caved. I could picture how I wanted this blog shoot to look from the location (Mount Holly Historic Cemetery) to the props I wanted to use to set the tone (vintage Nancy Drew novel). I was not going to let my fear of 5 inches of skin stand in the way of what I knew could be an awesome set. I am so glad that I ignored that voice inside my head.

I have never liked my body. I’ve always considered my self fat, and in my mind that was equal to ugly. I bought this outfit yesterday at Forever 21, in the plus sized section. While I was in the plus sized area, a little skinny white girl said to her friends, “This is my size guys.” and they all laughed. She continued to say, “haha just kidding, I’m not fat as fuck.” It has taken me a long time to be even remotely content with my body. I can officially say that I love everything about me. Fat does not equal ugly. Shitty people like the girl yesterday are what equal ugly. I love my not-so-flat stomach and my not-so-skinny arms. I love my stretch marks and my thighs. Just cause I’m bigger does not mean I’m any less beautiful.
