I felt the need to address this as even though I’ve been on this website 5 years, being called fat is still an issue.
I probably get a question a month from an anon commenting on my weight. Not always insulting, but a comment nonetheless. I normally delete them because I can’t be bothered to waste the energy replying. Above is a picture of my body. I have big boobs, big hips and big thighs and I don’t have an issue with it. If I did, I would’ve lost weight. I recognise I’m not obese nor do I think I’m some huge lumbering monster, but apparently people on this website think that I am and need to be reminded that I have a weight issue - forgetting that I see myself in the mirror every day.
When I was 16 I had an (albeit mild) eating disorder because I was bigger than all my friends, that is how I was built. Luckily, I didn’t have tumblr at that time, but there are so many impressionable young girls and boys on here that not only have to deal with pictures and anon hate, but even when they’re not getting it, someone on their dashboard is getting it. Growing up is tough enough. Literally guys, what is the point? Does it make you feel good?
I have a couple of thousand followers and even if this makes one person slightly better about being chubby, it’s worth it. It’s fine. As you get older you realise that things are worth so much more than the size of your jeans. If you’re nice, and funny and polite, people will like you, people will want to be with you, so please ignore the ignorance and feel good about the person you are and the shell you’re in.
