This blog is a fat/ body acceptance blog. Society needs to realize that people are beautiful and healthy AT ANY SIZE. I use the word FATspiration as a reclaiming of the word fat because people of all sizes have had that word used against them as an insult. This is a positive space only. I don't respond to hate, so don't bother. Submit your fatspirations. This includes: pictures, quotes, phrases, etc.
I use the word “culture” to define the society that shames and controls bodies.
Because when body shamers tell me what NOT to eat, I eat even MORE of it. Honestly, there are no REAL reasons to NOT eat something unless you’re allergic to it or if it would react badly with medication. Body shamers have been controlling your body and decisions far too long.
Jessica, also known as Fatseux is a body/fat positive blogger who inspires me (and most of you as well) on a daily basis with her style, intellect, wittiness, and general awesomeness.
DF Note: Kimya Dawson is a singer/songwriter of size and excellence. Dawson is well known for contributing songs and music to the soundtrack of the movie Juno featuring Michael Cera and Ellen Page. More than anything, Dawson has taught me that it’s okay to be fat AND a whole host of other awesome adjectives (quirky, weird, eclectic etc.)
