I’m fat and have been my whole life. Fat people have been told to feel ashamed of themselves. To be sorry for the space we take up, for how we dress/ do not dress ourselves, how we got fat, for existing. The body positive movement has made a space for anyone who has ever been made to feel bad about themselves. The media does a fantastic job of making people feel inadequate. Body positivity demands equality and radical self-love. Until we live in a society that welcomes and celebrates differences, we must celebrate our own.
