Okay, so this will probably end up becoming kind of an unpopular opinion thing…
But I sort of feel the need to talk about that.
I don’t mention it that often, but I’m actually struggling with the shape of my body quite bit. So… I started trying to follow some body positive blogs, both to learn drawing a few new body shapes and to become more comfortable with my own.
Well… most of the time, especially chub-positive blogs do exactly the opposite for me actually. Because of submissions like this.
I’m not saying “This person has no right to feel how they feel”. But it makes my own insecurity so incredibly much worse that they do. Because I see them, and I realise: “People find this shape ugly and fat already.”
"I must be an abomination for them. I must be so ugly. I must be hideous. Hideous, hideous fat piece of shit."
And I can’t get that off my mind anymore once it’s there.
And it poisons me and makes me sick.
I want to keep you safe
even if I'm not always here...
So I braided a mace into your hair!
