so, it’s pretty common to see an image like this with like an article about body image or eating disorders or whatever
and then they go on to talk about what a problem it is and how sad all these young women are hating themselves and hurting themselves because they think they are fat, when they aren’t
implying that if they were actually fat, then there wouldn’t be a problem, it would be totally normal and expected (as it is) to hate their bodies and hurt themselves over it.
fat bodies shouldn’t be used to represent poor self-image and low self-esteem, just the same way fat bodies shouldn’t be used to represent greed, laziness, gluttony, disease, or any of the other nasty shit that fat bodies too often symbolize
you know who sees a fat girl in the mirror every day? fat girls. and I wanna see a picture of a fat girl seeing her own reflection in the mirror, and I wanna see the article talking about why that girl doesn’t need to hate herself or starve herself or think herself unworthy of love.
I think I just peed a little.

And I will continue to push the people who care alway. Not because I don’t like you but because I don’t deserve you. I’m hurting you because I have a big mouth. My intentions are half the time good but other times just my opinion. Which I am fully entitled to. So I feel no shame for hurting you’re feeling I only feel shame that I do this to everyone who cares. In the end letting me get comfortable around you will either be the time of your life or I’m just gunna piss you off.
