Fancy as Fuck: New Fat Photo Project!

pompadoursandpincurls:

So let me start off by saying that I’m a photographer, a femme, a white person, an able-bodied person, and I’m fat. I’ve been fat my whole life and I’ve had to deal with a lot of bullshit.

One of the most political acts one can make as a fat person (I feel), especially as a femme/feminine…

I’m in Berkeley, and would love to work up some courage and participate in this. Also, signal boost.

(Trigger warning for sexual harassment/sexual assault)

It’s been a very busy few weeks (summer Latin class! Research assistantship! ), and then suddenly a deeply crap week at work, which involved some fairly significant sexual harassment (I’m not sure how to define it, really) from a library patron, and turned into a situation spanning a couple days, the police, and a lot of resentment, confusion, and mixed emotions on my part. Of course, this also means I’ve spent a large part of the week listening to Bikini Kill and thinking about what governs my reactions to situations like that, though I’m also clear that it’s not—or shouldn’t be—my responsibility to figure out how to react—it’s not anything that anyone should have to plan for. I’m still processing, but this song has been going through my head a lot.

Adammmmmmm!!

I realized it&#8217;s been a long time since I posted any Adam Ant (well, a long time since I posted anything, really), and the Jubilee tie-in was too good to resist.

Awesome album

This photo is from a slut walk.  Just felt that I should share.  I have never had such a horrible thing happen to me, but it is more than just likely that at least one of mine (as well as your own) current friends, relatives, and/or acquaintances has been raped, molested, or abused AND THEY MAY NEVER TELL YOU or even DENY IT. 
Because in most societies at this time, it is the one who is raped who is viewed as somehow at fault, shameful, and responsible of the actions of others.  Whether it be her clothes, her attitude, her flirting, her face, her background, her family, her income, her job, ect…: when it is NEVER their fault.  Without willful, consious, honest, sober consent…. it is not consent.

colored queer waters: Its not long enough to be a manifesta, but it should be: MY list of demands from the Fat Acceptance Movement

navigatethestream:

{After finally taking some time to figure out the whole Pork Magazine fuckery, and reading some awesome commentary from the people i follow and Fatpeopleofcolor tumblr, i thought that its time to lay out what i personally want as a fat person of color from my non-POC fat allies. please feel free…

This says it all. Great commentary.

"Fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an ED — it’s a lifestyle change."

Marianne Faithfull - Why’d ya do it?

This is for dreammason—I heard a rumor that you needed to hear this version. It’s a live recording from Blazing Away.

Marianne Faithfull is not for the faint-hearted. I adore this woman.
