If I am ignoring you, I apologize. I become distracted and will focus on one thing a while. Sometimes I’m just emotionally overwhelmed and I have to lay down for a while. I’m not ignoring you because it’s you it’s because life is distracting and hard and so sometimes I just need to stop talking to people and sometimes I do that suddenly.
Skinny people can be self conscious too and it IS brave to do something you were previously too embarrassed or ashamed to do and to be proud of that! Honestly I think it's hurtful to say that skinny people shouldn't feel a certain way about what they're wearing (brave, proud, self-conscious, whatever) just because they are skinny. That's ridiculous.
I agree, anyone can feel self-concious.
hognose snakes are adorable but they look like they slithered into a brick wall at top speed, except, top speed is fairly low for a snake, but somehow it still disfigured them
"kids arent being social now a days because of those brain washing phones" what the fuck do you think we’re doing with the phones. do you think we just stare at the number pad. do you think twitter is just a one way text from a robot bird.
You say it's "unfair", yet you continue to perpetuate those harmful ideas that contribute to that happening, and continue to proclaim that you're brave for wearing something you know you're just going to get praised for. God, every thin woman who thinks they're brave or special for wearing crop tops needs to be sucker punched right in the belly.
I’ve already explained why I’ve said it’s brave, so I’m not going to do it again.
I know I perpetuate harmful ideas, and I’m truly sorry for that. I’m working to unlearn those ideas, and I can find something unfair despite contributing to it.
I can't even deal with the fact that people are rushing in to comfort you tho. you're manipulating the very people you pretend to be an ally to. and yeah, I'm sure SO many people have told you to cover up that tiny little size 6 tummy of yours. You acting like wearing a belly shirt is a brave act for you is beyond insulting when your exposed belly is called "empowering", but our exposed bellies are called "disgusting".
I didn’t always have a “tiny little size 6 tummy”. Like I said, I used to be much bigger. And I say it’s “brave” because I’m self-conscious about my tummy and have been told to cover it up and not draw attention to it since I was like 8, and regardless of my size I feel brave when I show off and love a body part that I’ve been told to disguise.
You are right though, I have been called “inspirational” and “empowering” for wearing crop tops, and fat women doing the same thing get hate and ridicule, which is horribly unfair.
"The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change."

I will always reblog this because it is so so important.
I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks.
Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight?
That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.

Oh my god you are so much like moderation that it kills me 'boo hoo i'm so sorry poor pitiful me'. Most of your posts are just JLaw-esque crap trying to pass for body positivity: pictures of donuts (Wow, a thin woman who eats donuts! Revolutionary!), selfies of you in crop tops celebrating your belly (when you don't even have a belly to celebrate), acting like exposing a tiny perky tummy is brave somehow, images that say "love your body" (easy for a thin woman to say!)
I reblog pictures of food because I like food, not to be revolutionary. I know my wearing crop tops isn’t revolutionary either, but I’ve been told for most of my life that my tummy is unattractive, and that I need to wear “flattering” clothes to conceal it, so I’ve always been very self-conscious about it and for me personally, showing off a part of my body that I’d tried for my whole life to hide as much as possible does feel brave.
And “love your body” isn’t easy for me to say. I wasn’t always thin, and the fatphobia I dealt with as a child has made loving my body difficult even though my body has changed.
you're only slightly less scum than moderation in a way you're almost worse because at least its easy to see through her shit. with you it's scarier because you're a wolf in sheep's clothing, but scratch the surface and you'll find just as many harmful ideals about body image. lol I remember when you had a weight tracker on your blog, and now you expect us to pat you on the tummy and praise you for saying the same exact things fat women already say.
I know that I had harmful, wrong ideas about my body image that were hurtful to other people, and I’m working to undo those. I’ve struggled with eating disorders, and when I had that tracker, I was sick, though I know that’s not an excuse for any of the harmful things I’ve said and done, and I’m honestly sorry.
I don’t expect or deserve praise for anything I say to people like moderation, and I’m sorry that it comes across that way.
