Kyla The Great isn’t a space for people who hate their bodies to be coddled or indulged.
TW: Mention of dysphoria, ED
I will never congratulate you on your weight loss or give you a high-five for not eating a candy bar.
I will, however, always give you my uncensored, raw, feminist, no-bullshit, fuck-the-patriarchy, body positive views and support.
Loving who you are, the way your body is, is tough shit to do. It will be the harder than reaching your goal weight, but it, unlike your stupid diet, will last you a lifetime.
So, no… I won’t stop being who I am, responding how I do, or shoving this difficult-to-hear stuff in your face. Radical self-love, y’all. No excuses. Give it a try.
so i just saw you shame the shit out of someone who is obviously struggling, that’s definitely “supportive”
you know what’s tough? struggling with white women shaming me for not loving my body when i experience incredibly painful dysphoria, struggling with being shamed by white women about struggling to love my body as a latin@, struggling with able bodied white women shaming me for having trouble loving my disabled, hurting body.
(and you know what will last me a lifetime? my EATING DISORDER, gossshhhh.)
get your privileged head out of your privileged ass. shaming people for their goddamned choices isn’t body acceptance. shaming people for eating disorders isn’t body acceptance. shaming people for having a harder time practicing radical self love due to levels of oppression that you will never fucking understand isn’t body acceptance.
it’s just privileged bullshit.
All of dis ^
but also a lot of white fat positive folks miss the mark all the fucking time. They exclude people with EDs, disabilities, and dysphoria. They don’t understand intersectionality. Also, I find a lot of the people who say “don’t diet”, “don’t lose weight” are on the smaller end of plus size. Like some who is a 14/16/18 doesn’t have the experience of someone who is a 24/26/28. Also, if we’re being body positive we need to recognize and respect bodily autonomy. So, fuck off with shaming folks for losing weight or wanting to. Fuck off with saying people who struggle with loving their bodies are bad or weak. That’s such paternalistic bullshit. I find it really funny that a white abled-bodied cis woman who is on the small end of plus size is telling folks how to feel about their bodies and what’s right.
Yes yes yes! A million times this commentary.
