An Open Letter To Forever 21, From A Fat Customer

Today, I visited one of your Forever 21 stores near me. I know, it was wishful thinking even hoping that there would be a plus size section inside those 3000+ square feet, as so often clothing sizes end at L in your stores. But my best friend had some (Forever 21 plus size) jeans to …

Fashion Is Political: About The Curvy Con

I would not call myself a fashionista, and clothing definitely isn’t something that makes me wildly excited. But I am excited about the fat community, our determination, and the noise we are currently making, that is slowly but surely tearing down oppressive boundaries that society has set. So, I was pretty hyped to be at …

Is Loving Yourself The Same As Feelin’ Yourself?

I’m feeling like I can take on the world right now. I cut 6 inches off my hair, colored it super blonde, decided I don’t give a damn what the world thinks about my VBO (visible belly outline), and stopped worrying about wearing heels. I mean, for now. I’m not a magician, I realize that …

Fuck Being Healthy

“I don’t care what you look like as long as you’re healthy” We’ve all heard it. Many of us have nodded along in agreement, quietly disengaging from the well-intentioned person saying it.

It’s Ok To Not Be Ok

I am not one of those wonderful people who can “fake it till you make it”. No, I have a different kind of approach. It generally involves lying in bed and crying, while refusing to wash my hair, acting like people I love are jerks, and eating nothing but rice krispy treats. It happens every …

NOBODY ASKED YOU: WHAT I THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT MY BODY POSITIVITY

Body positivity does not ask for your opinion, or unsolicited advice. It doesn’t ask for you to decide if you think it’s something that is “good” or “bad”. It’s never asked you to change who you are, or what you do with your own body. It seems some people still haven’t got the memo, so …
