I think the source of my complaint is that we have a body positive community that says all bodies are beautiful but still, in probably subconscious ways, rewards having a body that is the mainstream ideal, only scaled up.
There is a feeling of being too fat to be pretty according to societal standards and then too shapeless to be pretty according to fat standards. There is in some ways a hierarchy of fat bodies where some echoes of the dominant ideal are reinforced. Even fat clothing retailers favor an hourglass body type or proportions that are “curvy”.
Hell the fuck to the yes god damn mothafuckin’ straight up truth. As a superfat who definitely does NOT have that “ideal” fat body, there is nothing more recognizable than this issue right here.
And it’s dangerous for those who are new to the movement as well as those who are still working through a lot of shit with their body image.
