I've been struggling with how to put my feelings into words. It's like all my deepest fears have been validated. People hate fat bodies. They fear looking like me. I have struggled with feeling comfortable and safe in my body lately. I've struggled finding power and worth in my body. I can only imagine how those in larger bodies must be feeling. Words are power. Making jokes about gaining weight isn't "lightening" the mood. It's exposing deep-seated #fatphobia. It's confirming every fat persons fears. That our bodies are bad bodies. That we are the worst thing that could happen to you. My body is not a before. It's not an inprogress. And I'm sure as shit not a skinny person stuck inside a fat persons body. Please choose to spread love and kindness during this time.
