It is just a body. The more you can be neutral about a body, the better. Bodies change, and many times they change from things out of your control. Bodies do not, and never will, have anything to do with your value.

I love this story of empowerment!

So I just posted this to my facebook:

“Had an awesome birthday! I had to have some photos taken of me cause I felt really good. I’m 23 and tired of feeling shame for who I am/where I come from. This is me, this is where I come from. I’m a big, gorgeous, struggling latina-american-chicana feminist, wannabe-fatshionista living in a trailer park in Channelview, Tx. I love taking photos of people and things and I think I’m pretty alright. I’m done with feeling ashamed of who I am and where I come from, these things do not hold me back or stop me from wanting to be happy and make art.”

I don’t normally share this kind of content on my facebook and have always tried to hide where I live or find ways to minimize my body and stay quiet when I hear people fat shaming. Well not anymore. I am so done. I turned 23 today and had a revelation. If people don’t like how I feel, how I look or where I come from, fuck them. I can’t please everyone and if you’re gonna judge me, go right ahead. I’m just gonna keep living life and try my best to make the most out of what I have. If that means living with my parents in a trailer park and a good day consist of them not drinking or doing hard drugs, then so be it. This is my reality and I’m tired of being discriminated for it. This is me. I am a fat hot bitch living in a low class situation and I sometimes I feel good enough about myself to make these kinds of post and have these kinds of photos taken of me.

I’ve been asked by people on different ends of the fat lover spectrum about advice being a good ally. From the “My lover doesn’t see how beautiful she is and won’t have sex with the lights on,” to the “My lover uses the term fat to describe themself but I’ve always thought of that as a derogatory word… isn’t it?” For FAT SEX WEEK I’ve highlighted some of the best ways to be a good ally to your fat lover. This is all from my limited perspective, you should obviously be in good communication with your lover to find out what works for them and how they operate in the world. Communication is an essential sex toy! This advice applies to folks of all sizes, not just thinner folks partnered (in all the myriad ways one can partner) with fat folks. And a lot of it is good advice for sex in general, regardless of whether or not your partner is fat.

I set my intention and it is this: For the next 75 minutes, don’t look around, don’t compare, don’t list all the ways you are not good enough to be here, and don’t hate yourself. Just Breathe. Just Breathe. Just Breathe. Just be in your body and remember how good a place it is to be, really.

Zoom JFREJ Purim Ball was last night. Theme was bodies. This piece performed was an excerpt from My Wife’s Ass, Glenn Marla and Hana Malia’s really incredible, moving and important theatrical work.
