We Aren’t Living In A Vacuum; Coping Strategies For Navigating Fat Hate:
...fat bodies are political – we can’t pick and choose when we want to be political because people look at our bodies and see symbols. If you’ll indulge me in a semiotic discussion for just a minute, our bodies are signifiers to other people. The way they read our bodies is wrong and pretty much sick – and it emphasizes the way fatties are both dehumanized in general and divorced from their bodily identity in particular. It’s a whole lot easier to hate someone when you see a symbol for overconsumption, for greed, for ill health (which is still fucking wrong), for whatever than it is when you see a person.

Hi, I am 36 year old BBW from outside Chicago. I loooove makeup. I also love to tan, listen to music, watch movies, hang out, pretty much anything a normal person likes to do. (I have links to my different profiles listed below)

This used to just be my makeup journal, but I have since started using it more and more for everyday things. Face of the day's will still be done but not the ONLY thing posted here.
Any of my FOTD pics will be listed with FOTD tags.(so check the tags plz)

Icons I have made will have an icon tag as well as the movie or show I made them from.
I created my own icon journal for my icons but I will post links to them here. I have Friend locked some of my older Icon posts so all those icons that are locked can also be found at my icon journal.
