I’m so glad to have received a notification from a fellow plus-size blogger today. Jana from the Tumblr blog, “Fat Acceptance and Tea,” shared a link to her blog with me, and I already love it and everything it stands for — and this isn’t just because there was a picture of Plump Princess on the blog’s Facebook page, although that certainly helped. By the looks of it, “Fat Acceptance and Tea” posts body positive, fat pride images, and as we all know, a picture can say a thousand words. I’ve re-blogged some of my favorite photos here:
I can’t help but love the classic Venus pose, especially when done as beautifully as this and, of course, when featuring such a lovely, voluptuous woman. Her body art gives this an almost majestic feel, like we can’t quite be sure if this woman is real or not. I know if she is real I’d definitely love to meet her though.
Feeling dehumanized when you’re overweight is obviously a problem. It isn’t just the blatantly rude comments or stares by strangers and passerby’s that do it, but I remember some of those “closest” to me making me feel the worst growing up. I don’t know if they meant to do it, probably not, but I used to think there was something wrong with me for being a little fat as a kid and then as a teen. But for all those larger lovelies out there reading this, I really hope if there’s anything you gain from all my rants and musings, it’s the knowledge that you’re damn beautiful, wobbly bits and all. In fact, wobbly bits especially!
Ok, so I kind of fell in love with this woman. She’s so beautiful that my eyes have literally started to hurt from staring so intently at this photo. That face and those curves are simply breathtaking..ok I will stop now. You get it.
The ultimate message I try to get out there. I must admit, though, I love her methods of delivering it!
