These pictures are not for you.
These pictures are for my dance teachers, who would never put me on advanced teams because of my weight, even though I more than qualified. These pictures are for my grandparents, who constantly tell me that I’m eating too much and that I should exercise more. These pictures are for the girl who, when I told her I had a boyfriend, commented, “so he likes them thick?” These pictures are for the costumer who in seventh grade, gave me a belt and commented, “there, now you have a waist”. These pictures are for my brother, who told me I wear too short of skirts. These pictures are for my cousin and her friends, who avoided me and called me fat, as though it was an insult. These pictures are for everyone who told me “you shouldn’t cut your hair, it’ll make you look bigger.” These pictures are for everyone who has ever looked down on me for how I look.
These pictures are to prove that no matter what you say, I love myself. I love my fat, I love my chub. I love my shape.
And fuck you, too.
It amazes me at the ignorance people posses. The women that post things like this are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
