if you don’t keep it down about how full you are or sing that silly song about being lazy at the top of your lungs or throw up in the hallway outside of my room (or something) or TRY TO OPEN MY DOOR AGAIN BECAUSE YOU THINK IT IS YOURS i will be upset. just because MOST people are not here doesn’t mean EVERYONE is not here.
As a “whole lotta woman” who is 5’7” and 170 pounds, I am a fat-positive feminist. I am a body-positive feminist. I feel like I’ve had to get into too many discussions about it this week alone, and I’m annoyed. The career of my choosing is probably one of the most physically demanding out there and I HAVE to be in tip-top fighting shape in order to do it.
I am working on gaining that muscle and maintaing a healthy relationship with food, my self-image, and my body in general. I am not going to deprive myself of things. I am not going to diet, or do things that don’t feel good. I am making a lifestyle change because I need to in order to do what I DREAM of doing and, in reality, I’m learning pretty quickly what foods and movements make me feel good and what don’t.
But if you come at me from any direction other than “I support you in the choices that you are making,” I call bullshit. If you come at ANYONE else in any direction other than “I support you in the choices you are making,” peace out.
Here are some articles and blog posts and resources in case there is any confusion on how fat-positivity and body-positivity is tied up in and important to intersectional feminism, because these writers have said it better than I’m currently able to.

And you realize how much you’ve actually grown up despite not feeling any different
I almost never sleep through the night since Mom put the house on stilts. Sorry, not JUST stilts. Stilts with LEGS. Stilts you have to OIL so they don’t get cranky and knock dishes off the counter if they rock too hard.
