Just in case I haven't said this enough. HOW YOU SPEAK ABOUT DISABLED PEOPLE IS POLITICAL.
When you use words that continue to make us 'other', you are damaging us. You are shrinking us into tragic, abnormal beings who are worthy only of pity. Somehow managing to exist in bodies that you consider unbearable.

I am angry. I am so fucking angry. And let's not even start on what happens when disabled women get angry, because I've spent my life being told I don't want to appear like I 'have a chip on my shoulder'. I am continually silenced. Disabled people are still in a position of oppression. Our photos reposted for perceived 'intersectionality' over genuine support by people who aren't political or educated enough to understand the difference.

We are not here to make you feel better about your hardships, or your health. It's not okay to live in a world where your lack of awareness is acceptable. If we aren't equally part of you activism, your feminism, your body positivity, then you're doing it wrong.

I am sick of using the back door, physically AND metaphorically. We are always the fucking after thought. All bodies, oh, and cripples.
Our bodies are valuable, they're worthy and they belong in this political space while WE fight against the same beauty & health standards that impact YOUR life.
We don't need your pity or your anxieties about our health, we need you to represent us authentically, repost us politically and stand with us in solidarity.

I’m really tired of hearing eating disorders diagnosed as an act of “extreme dieting” – or “excessive dieting” or “unhealthy dieting” or “dieting gone wrong.” The assumption here is that the act of dieting is inherently innocuous – that things only start to get messy when WE take it too far. Let me be clear: nothing about dieting is innocuous. Nothing about dieting is safe, beneficial, righteous, or benign. At what point do we cut the bullshit and stop trying to “find the line" between “normal dieting” and disordering eating? At what point do we stop letting the social norm of dieting go unquestioned? At what point do we start holding dieting accountable for the physical, psychological, and socio-political violence (don’t forget economic!) it inflicts on human bodies? At what point do we start waking the fuck up to the reality that dieting is a systemic form of oppression and 100% a feminist issue? I refuse to let dieting continue getting off the hook this way. I refuse to pretend like dieting and eating disorders don’t share the same bed. I refuse to rationalize, legitimate, or justify any method of food restriction – counting calories, tracking macros, measuring almonds, tallying points, giving the Whole30 a go, or “loving yourself to lose weight” – as anything other than what it is: participation in a culturally criminal system that necessitates a shame mentality and builds its success model around the idea that we are inferior, substandard, insufficient, unacceptable, or second-rate in our present form. If you are looking for a more Switzerland stance, you will not find it here.

Today I'm celebrating women who feel sexy and embrace it. Those who have learned (or are still learning) to embrace feeling empowered, powerful, pleasureful, honored and fun feeling sexy for themselves and their own validation.

Here's to us challenging a society that only views our bodies as sex objects or body parts for male sexual pleasure. You don't exist to turn anyone on, entertain or please someone. You're here to navigate and experience your life as you please. Who's ready to take all the unapologetic, unbridled selfies?! ✨

Ahhh Maria @jaynecimber , this is so raw and honest. Thank you for sharing your story with me. I am touched by your bravery and am no means surprised because a bad ass who can pull off a scar like this, must have a fierce soul within her! 🔥 Stunning! #ScarredNotScared
•••
#repost @jaynecimber As many of the big scars, there is a long story behind these ones: near death experiences, countless surgeries, stitches, pins coming in and out. Immobilisation, frustration, desperation, impatience. I was 20 when life, as I knew it, was over.

Even after surviving, I remember worrying that I’d never be able to wear shorts or short dresses or miniskirts again, and thinking of myself as less than anyone who didn’t look like they had been attacked by a shark. But, truth is… I always loved shorts and miniskirts :) It took me time and effort but I’ve come to terms with my new self. And if today I could turn to that 20-year-old me, I’d tell her yes, you are going to struggle, and yes, people will ‘scar shame’ you, and tell you (unasked) all about the state-of-the-art techiniques and creams that would ‘improve your scars’, and you’ll hear things like “oh it gives me the creeps just to look at it”. And when that happens, look at your scars and see all the strength you found in yourself. And yes, you can put on whatever outfit you feel like, and yes, people will also find them interesting and even hot, and will be amazed with how you’ve been through it all never giving up being yourself, and yes, you will complete a relay triathlon, and show off your unique scarred body in the smallest bikini if you want to.

And yes, your scars will make you different, and you will wear them like a crown. #scarrednotscared

There are atrocities in the world that we can't even begin to comprehend.
Things happen right in front of our eyes and we are powerless to help.
We read detached reports of despicable acts.
We see unjust trials and unfair results.
Again and again the human race disappoints us.
But again and again we are surprised when it does.

I am a fat, white, queer woman and whilst I've had my fair share of grief from the world - it's nothing compared to the things that some people have to go through.
I am an ally.
I am an ally to you, no matter the colour of your skin.
I am an ally to you, no matter the size of your waist.
I am an ally to you, no matter what your sexual preference is.
I am an ally to you, no matter what gender you are.
I am an ally to you, no matter where you are from in the world.
I am an ally to you, no matter what you have been through in your life.
I am an ally to you.

Life's fucking hard, show some kindness.

"I can't even sleep at night because I'm scared of waking up to a fucking notification from YouTube about my channel being terminated"- says a near tears Catloading, the YouTuber who stole the wrong fat bitches content.
To quote the great Bobby Singer - " Well, boohoo. I'm so sorry your feelings are hurt, princess." If you don't want repercussions maybe you shouldn't attack people unprovoked or steal their images and videos for your hateful deeds.
And for those who may look down on me for getting a kick out of this, just be happy I don't have a mug that says "Catloading's Tears."..... Yet. Who knows what could happen if my petty meter reaches full. 💁

Raise your hand if you love essential oils 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼 #essentialoils are a great way to create a #calm and #relaxing environment. Use lemongrass for a citrusy burst of energy, or lavender for a lovely stress free environment.
Whatever you choose, we hope that it helps you to be #mindful and calm. .

Yesterday's #Twirl. It was super hard to get the whole dress in frame. #EverydayTwirl

Wal-Mart had toys on clearance so... Fiance and I both rewarded ourselves with $2 worth of toys each. 😂

Also if anyone has a kid that does the online Animal Jam thing- I saved the codes. You can have them just DM me.

Real messages left for me.
My response: I won't lie I dont really understand what you're saying. "How can you think your healthy?" Because I am? I see a doctor and eat right, you know things normal people do? Also see my previous post about my father's battle with his health and you would know why I know what unhealthy looks like. "Body positivity is about people shaming who aren't actually fat." What? Body positivity isn't about body shaming period....that's kind of the whole deal. Yes, I am fat. No, I am not unhealthy. "Promoting this type of body is dangerous." To who? Just me? See previous discussion on how I know I'm not unhealthy. "Promoting unhealthy lifestyles, but hey were the bad guys ...etc." Yes, you (in general, people like you) are. See I dont go around telling you how to live your life. I don't bully you. I don't literally physically beat you up for simply being fat. I don't ridicule you to your face because of the way you look. I don't make videos of you mocking how you look. That is why you guys are considered bad guys. Because you don't give a shit about me as a person at all, you only care that we don't agree with your ideals.

Yes I do, thank you! Tea = warm bath for your insides 💕

what you look like at 1223 am sitting at the top of your stairs in the dark praying your little one will finally sleep after crying and refusing to sleep since 1020pm

1243am he's finally sleeping, long day for both of us tomorrow

No matter what we say to ourselves about our bodies, they are our interface with the world.
...
Without our bodies our lives are empty. That smell of a newborns head? It comes in through your body. That belly laugh, the deliciousness of a big hug, that incredible sunset, every moment of your life... all experienced through your body.
...
So the next time that you start the story that your body is wrong, ugly, disgusting, offensive or needing to be changed, what would it take to change that story to one of gratitude and appreciation? (No really, what would it take?).
...
If you are in Melbourne, I am running a weekend intensive in September where I will share some of the tools that have changed my story to one of body gratitude.
...
I would deeply love to share them with you. Because every single one of us deserves a life where our incredible bodies are a source of pleasure and celebration and delight. (Link in profile).

Pin curled my hair last night and it is .... Cute enough but I wish it came out more structured and less frizzy
