Here we go, kiddos! All the blogs on this list are body positive. They may not solely be about body/fat acceptance, but they do represent body positivity.
I encourage you to go through this list and fill up your dash with body positive blogs! Huzzah!
(If you find any broken links, spelling errors, repeats, blogs that are not adhering to being body positive, or if you would like to be included in this project please let me know in a private message. Thank you!)
I didn’t realize this list had happened! Awesome :D
If you’re using your privilege to the fullest extent you can, you’re probably stepping on oppressed people and not doing a very good job of checking yourself.
That said, I don’t think it’s necessarily wrong to enjoy privilege.
yeah, but I think agism is actually one that works both ways?????/ Like older people can’t get jobs, younger people are treated like they’re auto incompetent???????? IDK, it’s one of those things where I think people use it really out of context
Yeah, it definitely can be applied to the elderly as well.
I think it exists but I’ve also seen people call ageism on stupid shit. Like, if you dare suggest that someone young might be somewhat inexperienced suddenly there’s cries of ‘ageism!’. I think that’s bullshit. There are, however, genuine examples of it.
also if you do decide to look at strawberry panic read the books before watching the anime the anime is okay but the books are better
I’ve heard of it, but it doesn’t really interest me. It wasn’t really the homosexual romance aspect alone that made me love Utena so much. Thanks for suggesting it, though!
Haha, awesome. Hot coffee like in the gif would have been nicer, but lemonade will have to do.
(continued) that surround body image because it still affects me a lot, and i’d like to know my place in a sense. im sorry if this sounds ignorant/annoying
Your voice on the topic of body positivity in general is fine, it’s when you get into fat acceptance and thin privilege that you need to check yourself.
Stop policing what other people do with their uteruses and what grows in them.
