Not sure how them taking my video and reposting it with some nasty comment is a "meme" or how rolling my eyes at it, screen shotting it and asking my followers to report it is me being "triggered" by it, but I guess they didn't know who they were dealing with. Y'all are awesome, and shitty accounts like @shittymemesdelrey should get reported, instagram called the rest of the shots here. But yeah 💁🏼💁🏼💁🏼

Bed rules 🍭🍭🍭 ***Check out my latest #donthatetheshake, posted yesterday***

So apparently I took a time lapse instead of a video but, guess what?!? Sneak peak of my next #donthatetheshake video coming out in a bit!!!

Can't wait!!! #bodypositive #bodypositivity

Trans people are not a burden, but the idea that your gender is determined by your sex organs is though. Trans people are not a burden, but the excessive amounts of money spent in the military on new machinery and weapons instead of the mental, physical, emotional health of those in the military is though. Trans people are not a burden, but toxic masculinity is. #transrights

Good morning! And thanks for all the love on last night's post! Thank you for sharing your stories. Thank you for making this world just a little bit better! Ok a lot a bit better! ❤️❤️ #louisville #bodypositivity #bodypositive

I'm a little late, but July 25th holds a lot of significance for me. It's often, I think something I feel I should leave behind me, shouldn't open up about, shouldn't have feelings about, that somehow because I left him, I don't deserve to talk about how I feel. And maybe it's also because I don't know how I feel or how to articulate it. I guess sometimes I just want to hold space to remember who I was when we met, when I said yes and when I said "I do". I want to hold space for those years of my life that I did share with him, because I don't regret them, I just moved on, I had to move on. I want to hold space for the way I evolved, the things I learned, how I grew. I want to hold space for what I felt, the good and the bad in those five years. I want to hold space for this memory, and the many that came after, filled with family, friends, and dogs :). I want to hold space for the woman I am now, because I wouldn't be her if it wasn't for this day. I want to hold space for him and while he is no longer a part of my life, I still care for him and want the best for him. I want to hold space for the feelings that came with the ending of our marriage, that came with the pain I caused him, that came with the heart ache we both felt in our own ways. I want to hold space for the significance of this date in the years since, for new beginnings and the love I felt for people who entered into my life. I want to celebrate all of this, I want to feel all of this, I want to look back and look forward. So here is to another July 25th. To the girl I have always been. To the girl I will always be. #bodypositive #bodypositivity #divorce #july25th

Current Post: Musings over why my expression and telling of my experience as a fat woman is somehow often read as complaining.
Recognition of the dehumanization of my being and the distrust of my ability to accurately understand and relate my experience.
Feelings about this picture: Damn I'm about it.
Thinking about: how much I adore @chooselifewarrior (random I know, but true)

I just watched an episode of Girlfriends Guide to Divorce where the main character, Abby, goes out with her friend Barbara, played by the fabulous Retta (Donna Mwagle on Parks and Rec). The night is supposed to be about getting Barbara a hot date. By the end of the episode, Abby has gotten upset when Barbara is getting the attention of a handsome suitor and end ups fat shaming, food shaming, health shaming her friend Barbara. Saying things like, "How do you know he is even interested in you" and "I may have issues with eating but at least I don't eat too much" and "I worry about your health". At first I was interested in where they would take this, but was quickly disappointed when Barbara leaves and the writers decided to write the remainder of the episode so that we feel bad for Abby while she gets the man that was seemingly interested in Barbara. I sat here dumfounded that I was supposed to feel sorry for her, while she embodied everything most thin, white women have done to me my whole life. Abby understood herself as the center of everyone's story in that scenario, while helping her friend she still wanted the attention, she was allowed to make comments about what they were eating and how ridiculous it was that a man might be interested in her fat and black friend. Growing up I was never just a friend to thin girls, I was the fat friend. I was the friend they could comment on my body about, they could refuse to acknowledge my differing experience, they could compare themselves to. I wasn't supposed to be happy, content, or even a full human. I wasn't allowed to have my own life in our friendship, our friendship was always about them. This still translates to most experiences I have with thin, white women today. Especially now as a fat and happy and confident woman. I'm seen as someone who has broken the system, I'm supposed to want to be them, but I don't, it not supposed to have the affection or desire of men, but I do, I'm not supposed to be able to eat what I want and still feel good in my body, I'm supposed to miserable like them, but I'm not. And I don't know why I even share this, because it's not about pointing the ***more below***
