So tell me again what you have a problem with. Tell me again about these rules I'm breaking. Tell me about who made them up. Or why they even exist. Tell me again when I'm gonna die and what it is you say I'm glorifying. Tell me what you think about my body. Tell me that I have to dress a certain way because you don't find me attractive. Tell me that you're ashamed for me. Tell me again why I don't get to exist in the world the same way you do. Tell me again all the thoughts you have about me that I just need to know. Tell me what I should change. Tell me why you even care. Tell me about the lies you've bought in to without question that strip my agency from me. Tell me how the world works as if we don't have the power to change it. Look at me and tell me you don't value me because somewhere along the way you learned fat bodies were unnatural, broken, disgusting, all the same. Dehumanize me. And I'll stare right on back with a hip popped and a twinkle in my eye saying, "but I'm gonna change all that. Because I'm valuable, I'm worthy, I'm beautiful. Because I'm capable and passionate and determined. Because I deserve to live in a world where my body does not signify anything to you other than autonomy, respect, and an ability to live a beautiful life. Wanna fuck shit up together?!?" #bodypositivity #bopo #takingupspace #fatpositive #louisville #latergram #lbd #nobodyshame

P.S. I'll be the babe by the bourbon barrels.

Life has gotten quite a bit busier for me over the last week. I'm officially going to law school full time, working at @Old502 Winery on the weekends, being @yourstruelymelly, trying to be a good friend/partner, eat and sleep. Luckily I enjoy almost every aspect of it. Honestly this part of it has become the hardest. I miss the conversations we've had here but they have also taken a lot out of me. I want this to be a truly authentic, empowering, inspiring, place of community that changes the world, but in a lot of ways it's become a place that celebrates fame and the empty validation that comes with that. The reality is that we are all just people, our different access and privilege got some of us to a place where our voices were heard louder than the rest. And I feel like the celebration of that fame has begun to drown out the very real issues we all came here to fight against and talk about. Community is important. Conversations are important. Recognizing that we don't know what the fuck we are doing is necessary. Knowing our worth is what matters. And the amount of money we make off this platform; the amount of likes we get or don't get, the amount of followers we have shouldn't be something we celebrate. Being in this world of what has become photoshoots, fashion, glamour and the like for so many of us at times while being in law school during New York Fashion Week and Curvy Con made me feel a lot of things! I had to log off. What's our goal here? Why are you here? What can I bring to the conversation? Sincerely, a lucky fat girl, who fell into all this and still wants more for all of us.

When he makes you feel like this 😍😍

"I will not storm the gates of a movement that is so deeply ambivalent about my worthiness. Instead, I will take on the tough and tender work of building loving homes, shoulder-to-shoulder with those of us who’ve been shut out." These are the final words of Your Fat Friend's article "Body Positivity and its discontents," published on @medium (link in bio). I read it aloud last night in my insta stories. Please listen to it, read it, follow this amazing writer, but also hear the words. Feel them. If you know them, let them speak to you. If you are hearing and feeling them for the first time, there is work to be done. This picture is a #tbt from our #truelyglitterpanda vacation just over a month ago. It's been shared elsewhere but I wanted to share it again. I'll be back soon.

Never apologize for this!!!❤️❤️❤️ never feel like you need to stop growing and stop challenging yourself. Don't let other's hold you back and don't ever let them use who you once were to discredit how you've grown. It's all about moving forward, loving ourselves enough to see our imperfections and instead of denying them, learning from them. This happens in community, this happens in conversation, in experiencing new ideas. Move forward, become more, be proud of that. Thank you @scarrednotscared for sharing this

"Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision, and a moral question. Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn’t threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us. They are that pitcher on our kid’s softball team, that first responder who helps out his community after a disaster, that cadet in ROTC who wants nothing more than to wear the uniform of the country that gave him a chance. Kicking them out won’t lower the unemployment rate, or lighten anyone’s taxes, or raise anybody’s wages.

It is precisely because this action is contrary to our spirit, and to common sense, that business leaders, faith leaders, economists, and Americans of all political stripes called on the administration not to do what it did today. And now that the White House has shifted its responsibility for these young people to Congress, it’s up to Members of Congress to protect these young people and our future. I’m heartened by those who’ve suggested that they should. And I join my voice with the majority of Americans who hope they step up and do it with a sense of moral urgency that matches the urgency these young people feel.

Ultimately, this is about basic decency. This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we’d want our own kids to be treated. It’s about who we are as a people – and who we want to be.

What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray. What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals – that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation. That’s how America has traveled this far. That’s how, if we keep at it, we will ultimately reach that more perfect union." -President @barackobama (image via @liquid_universe)
