So all the time on this website I see how it’s acceptable to post pictures in bikinis so it should be acceptable to post pictures in bras. My logic is if it’s acceptable for skinny guys to parade around in underwear, fat guys should be able to too.
But that’s not what this post is about. This is about my 2nd grade teacher, who told me it “wouldn’t be a surprise if I got diabetes”. This is about the flag football coach who made me run stairs because I was “too fat to run with the other kids.” This is about the girls who asked me why I wore Hollister when it was obvious they were too tight on my stomach. This is about my dad, who bought me a year long gym membership for Christmas when I asked for a goddamn Playstation.
More than that, goddammit this is about you. This is about you and everyone else who has ever hated your body. Because I’m telling you you are fucking beautiful. You, right now, are fucking majestic. Love yourself. Love your thunder thighs, even if they make you want to wear long shorts. Love your chicken legs, even if everyone says you look emaciated. Love your pimples, they’re fucking natural. Love your crooked teeth, because a crooked smile is the best smile.
This post isn’t about forcing you to look at me half-naked (though I know I’m quite the sight.) It’s about being body fucking positive, no matter who you are. One day someone’s going to plow you on a coffee table (or you’re gonna plow them idk) and they’re not gonna say “You really need to exercise.” They’re going to say “Again please.”
I have to reblog this, idec.
