[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]
Q:Hey, just wanted to say I really like your blog and to thank you for your post about Fairy Mary!! I haven't seen much of Disney Fairies, so I forgot about her! It's great that Disney actually did a fat character right. And I think it's absolutely awesome that you're a "plus size" male model, I've never even heard of that before (sadly). There can never be too much body-positivity on my dash! :)
Thank you very much! My evening has been resolutely made by your sweet comment.
Fairy Mary’s pretty awesome. Disney has got some pretty great fat characters, but you usually have to dig them out of obscure direct-to-dvd sequels. Such as my all-time favourite ever:
Q:how can i block your url so i don't see you in the plus size model tag?
My girlfriend took pictures of me and they came out nice so I am now posting them on tumblr dot com.
Hey, have you seen literally the saddest thing ever created?
Mario, why the fuck are you using fire against a fire Pokémon? Get your act together, dipshit.
