managing my body image stuff has been a big struggle recently, stuff that used to work has been working less i think because i am realizing fucked up ways i have related to my body in the past and accepting that things that have happened to me haven’t been ok. but i want to feel okay with how i look and i think it’s important, i hate the self hatred women&queers have about their weight and appearance, it isn’t okay. the idea that we would all be “naturally” skinny were it not for x y and z factors is misogynistic and pseudoscientific nonsense perpetuated by fuckers whose heads are up their asses so don’t let it get you down because they are wrong, sad people. when people start talking to you about “biology” they usually have an ulterior motive, 9.999/10 times they’re not fucking biologists and even biological and medical science has been proven time and again to be wrong about this shit. you are okay the way you are and should feel okay. you can’t hate yourself into being different. your body may not be what you want it to be but it is yours and it serves you by keeping you breathing, communicating, and feeling; your body is not trying to hurt you, and needs to be nourished and accepted because it IS you. we mentally separate ourselves from our bodies to create a target for our negativity and self-hatred; but you are intimately connected to your body. you are one and the same, and who you are and what your are and how you look is okay. there is nothing to be gained by enacting violent thoughts or actions on our bodies, and we don’t deserve it. the fantasy vision we have of ourselves as thinner, taller, stronger, or more beautiful is not something that exists, but a projection we self-destructively create as we amplify our “faults”— faults that oftentimes are invisible to everyone but ourselves. the fantasy doesn’t need to be nurtured. we ourselves need to be nurtured. strong enough, small enough, big enough, smart enough, able enough, beautiful enough, we are enough. stop hurting yourself because you are okay just how you are.
