[tw : sexual assault, ed, body image]
ppl say, “oh, you’re chubby but you’re proportional!” the implication is, “oh, don’t worry, you’re the socially acceptable strain of overweight!”
fuck you. i’m a body that’s endured sexual trauma, a body that’s struggling to recover from an eating disorder, a body that gets up and moves every day and lives and survives, and the only bone you can throw me is chubby but proportional?
how about chubby and magnificent? curvy and magical?
get your “but’s” out of here so i can start appreciating mine.
