You are absolutely beautiful! Where did you get those awesome black high waisted shorts? :)
awww, geeze. thank you!!
a couple folks have been asking about the shorts: they’re from a chain store called rainbow. they were like $16 and fit perfectly but started falling apart after the first wash. ah, the joys of fat shopping.
things “body positivity” movements should address besides weight/fat:
features associated with non-whiteness
lots of body hair / no body hair / little body hair / hair in all places / losing hair
different ways that skin tans
so when white feminists show me pictures of fat able-bodied white women with super smooth skin and no discolorations/skin marks and no body hair and say “love your body!!1!” it’s like nope.
I may be fat but I’m also so many other things that are looked down upon and policed. If your body positivity doesn’t seek to dismantle white supremacy/ableism/cissexism/etc, what good is your body positivity? who is it helping?
being a shy queer and liking other shy queers is challenging sometimes because like, do you like me and are too shy to say anything, because i like you and am too shy to say anything, or do i just like you and you don’t like me??
