Have you donated to this KICK ASS production today? 
This production is like a Tumblr Fest!!! Fat Acceptance, Body Positivity, Health At Every Size, plus the cast and crew is comprised of Fat People, POC and it has a Female director!!!!…Come on Tumblr, this is your shit! Get behind this and help make ART!

This production is gaining momentum and funds are coming in, but they need YOUR help! 
Be a supporter of the Arts! 
It just takes $5.00 to be part of this and I promise you’ll feel good about it!

The Hollywood Fringe Festival is designed to support the next generation of artists. It’s a place where they can exhibit the most diverse and cutting-edge arts projects they can possibly imagine!

This will be a professional show, and knowing these guys, it will be FANTASTIC….and YOU could be a “producer”!!!
Add THAT to your resume!

In a city that is built on high dollar art with all the big names and big players, this gives kids that are just entering the industry a chance to be heard, be seen and share their art with the world! 

So skip that drive thru and send $5.00 (or more) to support new art!
I promise you won’t regret it!

If you’re a smaller fat person and you embrace the word fat and use it descriptively and lovingly, that’s awesome. I just hope that you think about your big fat friends who can’t use weight limited gym equipment, are denied visas to countries, denied life saving operations, and…

A note to the girls who fly the fat flag even though they aren’t fat, just a little soft.  Its not about you FEELING fat, it is about BEING fat.  And if you can buy clothes at a store without hitting the plus size department every fucking time, you are not fat.  You are not helping the fat acceptance thing, you are claiming something that isnt yours.  Body acceptance and self love is one thing, but dont touch the F word if you aren’t part of the F club.

^^^^^This is SOOOO True! I see so many people on Tumblr that are flying the F flag and they clearly are NOT fat. If you are a size 12 - you are NOT fat, size 14 - NOT fat, size 16 - NOT fat, size 18 - still NOT fat….even if you are super short. If you can walk into any department store, find your size on a rack and pay regular prices for an outfit, then you are NOT fat! If however you HAVE to (NOT a choice, NOT a decision, but a mandate based on your clothing size) shop in the “plus size” section or have to go to a specialty store and pay exorbitant amounts of money for the same pair of pants that a size 0-18 can and does get for a “deal”, then you can proudly fly your F flag. It doesn’t stop and end with clothing though! There are soooo many other areas of life that are affected - medical conditions, medical care, health insurance, seat belts, VISAs, plane seats, furniture, the list goes on and on….so if you think you are fat because you wear a bigger size than you want to or a bigger size than a girl on a magazine cover, get some perspective!
Body acceptance is for EVERYONE - celebrate it, embrace it!
FAT acceptance is for FAT people! STOP claiming something that IS NOT YOURS!!!!!!
You don’t get to bounce back and forth between the two worlds (Fat and chubby/average size) as it fits your needs, suits your mood, enhances your blog or feeds your power/insecurity.
Check your privilege and stop claiming something that isn’t yours!

What others see: “OMGAHHH that’s so cute!” “The cutest thing ever!” “Love has no limits!”

What I see: “Diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure, short mortality, sadness and depression that follows for the other still alive.” To love one’s body is to be healthy, not blindly following the fat loving trend.

Oh, Im sorry are you my personal fucking physician? Oh Im sorry, are you telling ME what it means to love MY body? OH Im FUCKING SORRY are you telling me that MY body acceptance journey is a trend?

More then all of the other bullshit health claims I have read, this, this one gets me the worst. For the love of god how DARE you call my self-love a trend. I love that so many kind people have been able to step outside of the typical perception of beauty and love and appreciate these pictures. But every once in a while some asshole like you comes out of the wood work to blow the whistle like “HOLD UP YOU IDIOTS, LET ME TELL YOU WHY THIS ISNT LOVE AND HER SELF LOVE AND LIFE STYLE CHOICES ARE WRONG”  Well Im really glad you have found a way to make yourself feel superior to myself, my partner and all of  the decent fucking people who support our right to live our life the way we fucking want.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I consider myself to be a pretty good person, I will say hello and be kind if you approach me, I do a lot of charity work and I have a reputation for being pretty funny. Im pretty smart, educated and all that. I play music in a band, I like to paint and party and kick it with my friends. 

And I’m fat, but most of the time I don’t realize that.That might sound really confusing, so Let me break it down for you: 

I have always been big, everyone in my family is big. For the most part I was raised to love who I am. I’ve never really had a problem with it, until the world told me my body was wrong. Until people made comments, called me names and alienated me. Until my clothing options, healthcare and job opportunities were compromised. Oh yeah and lets not forget being the poster-girl for laziness/bad hygiene and immoral lack of self-control.  And yeah I skated by on being-class-clown-extreme-always-doing-somthing-crazy-girl in addition to being a fat girl. Shit, I was even Prom Queen(GASP!) But no matter how much *I love myself* I will always have to deal with people (Like you!) Sticking their misguided opinions into my life and ultimately trying to make me dislike myself. As happy as I am with me, strangers will still give me cards with “A GREAT NUTRITIONIST’S” phone number on them. People will still automatically assume I am sad and depressed with myself because MY GOD HOW COULD ANYONE BE HAPPY LOOKING LIKE THAT. My career, my artwork, my talent will always be watered down because its all seen through the fat-filter. My boyfriend will still be questioned relentlessly about his attraction to me. I could go on and on.

It’s so fucking sad that people consider my body size to be immoral or a bad example. People really think this is the worst I could do. Because I think that the real savage behavior is the blind assumptions people make about being fat.

The real immoral action is dehumanizing someone, taking their humanity and dissolving into nothing just by looking at them. 

Final summation: Dont disguise fat-hate/body shaming as “concern for my health”>Don’t confuse skinniness with health>Don’t confuse health with moral superiority. And most importantly, don’t tell me how to live my life.

#1 Junior Tennis Player in the World Benched for Being Too Fat:

16-year-old Taylor Townsend is currently the number one junior tennis player in the world, bringing hope to the increasingly troubled state of American tennis. Considered a prodigy, Townsend is one of 25 junior players currently being trained at the brand-new full-time academy in Boca Raton, FL, which is funded by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
Logically, this would seem to make her a major asset for the sport. However, Townsend has been benched by the USTA until further notice. The reason? Evidently, Townsend is just too darn fat.
Thursday, she won two matches at the U.S. Open’s junior tournament, the last a dominating two-set victory over Mexico’s Marcela Zacarias in which she pumped her fist after winners and jogged to her chair for every changeover.
But unbeknownst to everyone outside her inner circle, the USTA wasn’t happy to see Townsend in New York. Her coaches declined to pay her travel expenses to attend the Open and told her this summer that they wouldn’t finance any tournament appearances until she makes sufficient progress in one area: slimming down and getting into better shape.

An Open Letter To The Fat Girl - By Winona Dimeo-Ediger

cassket:

Dear Fat Girl,

Last week, I saw an overweight news anchor respond to a bully with such power and confidence that it made me cry. It also made me want to write about my own experience of being a…

Parents, PLEASE teach your children this - Boys or Girls, but especially your GIRLS!

A) BULLSHIT BODY CONFIDENCE STORY

B) BULLSHIT SIZE RANGE

C) “HEALTHY”? HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH A FUCKING BIKINI.

I suggest bombarding this journalist with responses from deathfat babes (a photo is “ideal” they say, so if you have one  then let them have it!)

I totally want them to be swamped with super fatty fat fat people in swimsuits.

(Please reblog this if you can, I want this journalist swimming in fat.)

My Email Response

1.  If you are seeking body confident people in bikinis why put the size restriction on?  Do you have any idea how small and well represented size 12-16 girls are?

2.  Why are you not doing a photo shoot?  Skinny girls get photo shoots.  And they get paid to do it.  How much do you pay your thin models that dont have an “inspirational fat chick” story you can exploit. 

3.  Body confidence is not a secret.  Its a way of life.  Its a rebellion.  Its a riot.

4.  Ideally I’ll have a photo of myself looking amazing in a summer outfit or togs, but don’t let it stop me from responding?  HOLD ON LEMME DIG THROUGH ALL MY FATTY MCFAT PICTURES OH NO IM COVERED IN FOOD IN THAT ONE OH HOLD ON I CANT SEE OVER MY DOUBLE CHIN WHERE OH WHERE DID I STASH MY FLATTERING PICTURES?!

5.  “Everyone wants to look great in a swimsuit” NEWS FLASH I DONT GIVE A SHIT HOW I LOOK IN A SWIMSUIT SOME PEOPLE HAVE OTHER THINGS THEY ARE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT BUT THANKS FOR SPEAKING FOR ~EVERYONE~ ANYWAY.  FUCK FLATTERING.

6.  “but we want to show that this can be achieved by loving your body and projecting confidence, rather than starving yourself to size zero.”  Wow, you managed to fat shame and thin shame.  Amazing.  You guys sure are doing wonders for self esteem and body image.  Where would we be without you guys? 

7. “Of course we honour being a healthy weight and fitness for wellbeing, but we also know that you are not your bikini pant size.”  Are you my doctor?  Oh, no?  Turns out you know jack shit about my health - and the rest of everybody’s health too.  Mind your own fucking business.  Maybe you should sit down and brace yourself for this little gem but uh, some people choose to be fat.  I know it is hard to believe but there are actually people in this world that prefer being fat.  Being healthy isnt something fat people owe society and fat bodies do not need to be apologized for whether they are in a bathing suit, in the gym, or on a couch watching a movie eating a large pizza and loving it. 

8.  “Successful sources will not be paid.”  Oh, so you want to take average sized women and exploit their stories and make money off of them all while sending the message “Larger than life but still rocking it/ Fat women who SOMEHOW find themselves attractive/ Martyr Magazine features normal sized women What heroes!  AND not pay the models who decided on their own accord to ALLOW you to capture their beauty?  What an incredible platform and opportunity you are providing!

Go. Fuck. Yourself.  You are just like every other magazine.

My daughter is so fucking right on it BLOWS MY MIND!
My incredibly beautiful, brave, intelligent and bad ass daughter just served this journalist his/her ass on a platter!
Proud Mom moment #456718739823798192837648659857…..she’s cool like that!

A friend of mine is doing some research work for a final paper at her university. She’s doing work around fat issues, particularly cultural/public perceptions. If you could fill this out and reblog, it would be really helpful. It’s pretty short and should only take ten minutes or so, but there’s spaces for extra comments so it may take longer.

[Warning: Some of the questions in here ask you to rate certain statements with strongly agree, somewhat agree, etc. They may be potentially triggering for fat-shaming]

Please fill this out and reblog - the more responses the more accurate the data. I know the person who is writing this paper….trust me, your answers will help to change the world!
