STFU Sizists

Welcome to a fat-friendly environment in which to share positive thoughts on fat and size acceptance, and to showcase some of the greatest hits of fatphobic ignorance!

This is a HAES-positive space, so please do not make assumptions about anyone's health (not that you should be anyway)

This is also a trans*-friendly, feminist-friendly, pro-choice, anti-ableist and anti-racist space, so please keep that in mind.

"The study offers further depressing insights. Not only did the male pretend jurors prove “significantly more likely” to find the obese female defendants—rather than the slim ones—guilty, but the trim male participants were worst of all, frequently labeling the fat women “repeat offenders” with “awareness” of their crimes."

"You would think that fat individuals would breathe a sigh of relief at hearing that fat isn’t changeable. Experts often tout this belief when arguing against fat acceptance. … In fact, I have had people sneer or laugh at my work, but when someone gets upset at me, even furious, they are almost always very fat. In my experience, most fat people desperately want to be thinner and will try anything and everything to get that way.

When I tell them they have very little chance of ever being slim, I am telling them that, with our society as it is, they will always be socially unacceptable.

When I tell someone they have no hope of being thinner, I tell them they have no hope of this changing, unless they are willing to fight in order to change society – a much bigger job than a diet. No wonder people are willing to mutilate their bodies and risk death in order to be thinner. That is, most fat individuals would do anything to be socially acceptable."

Fat hacks should be a thing

fancybidet:

Fat people adapt to a world that is unkind to them and environments that ostracise them. I’ve started to realise that the secret ways in which I maneuver through the world could be seen as fat hacks, but usually I am so covert in my fat hacking because I don’t want to draw attention to my body. A lot of the time I don’t even realise I’m fat hacking because it’s just a normal practice in response to a world I don’t fit in to.

I’m going to be thinking about ways I fat hack my life and write about them and it’d be cool to read about the way other people fat hack too.

After designers refused to dress her for the Oscars, Melissa McCarthy launched her own clothing company

"When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed," McCarthy said in the July issue of the magazine. "Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers — very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people — and they all said no."
Instead, McCarthy walked the 2012 red carpet in a dress by Marina Rinaldi, a designer available at high-end deparment stores. While she looked great in the frock, the fact that designeers were unwilling or (even more implausable) unable to design a dress for the A-list star says a lot about the stigma still attached to plus-sized fashion.

I’ve often lamented that I need a t-shirt that says “I have a fucking head you know.”

Someone needs to make that shirt. Now.
