a post about fat people.

this weekend, i went to an art show in brooklyn. since it’s in new york, what else could be expected than it taking place in a run-down warehouse?

it was called fatter irl, and was an art exhibit featuring only fat/queer artists.

on the subject of pleasure, for example.

the whole exhibit was like big a bodypositive tribute of inclusion and diversity. SO good and SO important. this needs to ba talked about more in mainstream media.

when can we come to a point where “fat” isn’t a word with an inherent negative value? maybe some day in the future, looks won’t even have to be valued at all—but until then, can’t we just understand that “fat” is a descriptive word like any other adjective? like skinny, quiet, solid, transparent, or blonde. if we still absolutely NEED to put value in people’s looks, let’s at least value fat and skinny equally. it’s important, it needs to happen now and everywhere. bodypositivity saves lives. hollywood as it is today kills lives. it might sound dramatic but it’s true. there is so much damage to our mental health because of the way we see bodies and their made-up values today. please, give this a thought. talk about it with people. spread it.

so that some day, 12 sad sarcastic tips about why fat girls are better can belong to the past.

jag var på en tjock/queer-utställning i helgen. mkt intressant, men främst SÅ viktigt med kroppspositivitet. NÄR kommer den dagen då “fet” och “smal” har samma värde? det borde hända nu, det borde ha hänt redan igår.

dagens smalideal dödar. detta är så jävla viktigt. sprid.

    Men vad jag hade velat gå på den här. Var iväg hos vänner i helgen och vi hade långa diskussioner om vikt. En jobbar som sjukgymnast och en utbildar sig till arbetsterapeut och det var så mycket argument om hur vikt påverkar leder, hjärta och kärl osv. Men det fanns tyvärr också så många sorgliga idéer om att tjock = dålig och det är absolut ingenting att sträva efter. Jag blev ledsen. Bra inlägg babe <3

    ja det ar svart, men framst tanker jag att det ar viktigt att prata om att fysisk halsa och vardeladdningar maste diskuteras separat. i dagslaget konnoteras “tjock” med att vara dalig, lat, ointelligent, etc. men det vet du ju. puss!
