this is just so odd to me, please stop this tumblr
You know what’s odd? Someone being so self righteous that instead of just scrolling past someone they find physically unappealing, they reblog said person and delete the original poster’s commentary with their own obnoxious bullshit. You obviously were never taught an ounce of respect or humility.
That’s what’s really odd here.
Also, no, ‘tumblr’ isn’t going to stop this. Fat women have every right to exist in this world as our thin counterparts do and may we forever make ignorant minded people like you tilt your head in confusion for not hiding in a way that’s up to your standards.
Listen, when I was a kid I was really obese, as in, it was a danger to my health,I didn’t like who I was and I hated the way I felt. I was depressed. But I turned my life around with exercise and proper diet and now, as a 19 year old male I weight 165 pounds. I know you didn’t ask for my life story or anything but maybe it will help you understand why things like fat acceptance are really odd to me. I cannot fathom why someone would come to a place like tumblr to seek acceptance for being unhealthy. If you are obese why would you want praise? Its as if I wanted you to throw me a party for having cancer and refusing medicine
you’re right, I didn’t ask for your life story. your life story does not give you the right to tell other people they don’t deserve to like themselves. I couldn’t care less what your stats are, I care about how you treat other people..which at this point is like shit. YOU were those things, YOU hated the way you felt, YOU were depressed. did it not ever occur to you that, possibly maybe, part of you feeling like that had to do with all of the stigma and criticism that you face being fat? or maybe that if you see someone who is obviously happy with themselves, that it is not your place to try to take away from that?
the really funny part of all of this is that you’re making these judgments based on me posting a picture of myself in a bikini. you’re claiming that I did this for ‘praise’ or ‘a party for my fat’, when in actuality you very clearly erased the reason why I did post it. you thought what you had to say was so goddamn important, that you decided it was okay to erase my original message and act as though I was doing this for some ulterior motive even though it was right in front of your smug fucking face.
"so I placed an order on Swimsuitsforall when their site was allowing you to stack an abundance of coupons..and this is what I got! Both tops are in a size 20, bottoms are a 24 (I’m usually a 26 on bottom for reference). I also got the cover up shown which is a 22/24. Everything for a whopping..$11.04. They only allow you to stack 3 coupon codes now, but they’re constantly having sales and I think it’d be worth it for anyone looking for swimsuits/cover ups to check it out! :3
I apologize for the wonky lighting on these and my perma-hand-on-hip, but I’m planning on taking pictures out by the pool and those will be better quality! Also, you can kinda see my stretch marks (mostly in the last picture) for the people asking if I have any. Keeping those company is my gallbladder scar and cellulite. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like those things aren’t natural or that you’re any less lovely because of them. It’s all okay.<3”
how dare I have the audacity to show how certain swimwear fits on my body so that other fat women might see more options for themselves. how dare I tell women that they shouldn’t be ashamed of things that women of all sizes have (stretch marks, cellulite, etc). mostly, how dare I wear swimwear that is completely reserved for bodies who are ‘more worthy’ of wearing it. it’s obviously made in my size so that it can just stay on a hanger for it’s entire existence, not to possibly fit onto a body like mine. you know what the hilarious part of this is though? I bought these articles of clothing to do, presumably, what most people do with swimwear… to swim in them. isn’t swimming a form of what you’re saying is chemo for fatties? the cure for all? then why, does what I’m wearing while I’m doing it REALLY matter to you?
why does how I choose to look while doing it mean ANYTHING to you?
please explain to me with your very clear logic how me posting pictures of my outfits or how I look in a bikini is asking for praise or a celebration in my honor. please explain to me how that’s the whole reason that fashion bloggers exist. it’s totally not to just..share something that we’re passionate about and that we like. you literally think that fat people are so unworthy of self love and acceptance that you think them posting a mere fucking picture of themselves and not having people tell them they’re disgusting is like celebrating a party for them. are you really serious right now?
this just goes to show that this has absolutely nothing to do with health. this has to do with you thinking that as long as fat people are fat, they should not be able to exist as other people do. I’m not allowed to have a blog dedicated to my fashion because I should be wallowing in self pity and doubt and insecurities until I fix what you perceive as the problem. you think that fat people are so undeserving of normal treatment that the only pictures of us that should exist are ones where we’re clearly hating ourselves or as a visual representation of a bad statistic or a before/after.
you used to hate yourself and now you’re all thin and fixed? congrats. you’re now actively being a part of the group of illogical people who treat fat folk like they’re not allowed to exist happily under the guise of ‘health’. also, you are so goddamn obnoxious and ignorant that it physically hurts to look at your blog and reply to you. you act as though you’re trying to be ‘respectful’ or like your life story means you can relate to us fatties, when you literally referred to me as ‘the obese girl’ and were surprised when someone unfollowed you for making fun of me. you were humored that someone thought I deserved more than to be made fun of for posting a picture of myself.
Oh god that explains why that person is so awful. Former fatties are the most evangelical about dieting. I’m sure he’ll get fat again someday but he thinks being hateful will keep the evil adipose away.
