Hello Mykki Blanco

suuuuuper into this. the song is catchy as fuck, Mykki Blanco’s a cutie and obviously I’m all about all the othered bodies shown in beautiful ways.

Would have loved some more fat bodies so it didn’t look as if the goddess here in her skivvies was fetishistic BUT she’s a stunner and at least she’s shown to be happy, powerful and sexy!

I SEE YOU BIG BOY
my journey of self love led me to this fatkini début earlier this year. i didn’t have a fatkini to wear (i`m not really sure that i’m a fatkini kind of gay, glitter short shorts and titz out is more my speed) but i worked with what i had (as per) and i looked damn fine. this was the day i finally gave the public world the pleasure of gazing upon my hot juicy beach bod and i felt really scared while i was doing it. since then i’ve been getting more comfortable with it and now i’d pretty much walk around naked if i could because i’m fucking over hiding my body to make other people comfortable. for my entire life, i’ve felt so much pressure from the world around me to conceal and hide my body and i internalized it in really weird and fucked up ways, it feels really powerful and healing to just do my thing now. i hope if you want to do this too, you try it out! i used to wear hoodies all summer and now i’m all thunder thighs and double chins and loving ever minute of it.
i just try to remember this about the haters: they are just sad. their words and responses are products of a body shaming culture that is racist, classist, ableist and deeply misogynist (and cissexist, duh). this is the culture that prevails when i continue to feel ashamed and cover my body, this is the culture that prevails when i am invisible. but most of all, sad, body shaming haters are totally fucking irrelevant to my fabulous obese lifestyle. 

The body of a god, the tongue of a champion, a fierce & beautiful tenderheart and my very best friend <3 <3

Attention Followers!

I am starting a body positive art project, and I need your help!

For this project I will be asking willing participants (friends, tumblr followers, family, etc) to send me images of their breasts (I am starting with breasts but plan on also doing a tummy and bum project too) to create a grid of anonymous body parts in all different shapes, sizes, colors, ages, etc.

The end result should look like a floral pattern or geometric design, but upon further inspection is actually a few hundred pictures of different kinds of boobs/bellies/butts. I will be gum-printing small grids initially, and screen-printing large ones on scarves that you can wear (!!!), or hang on your wall. The example above is only a small portion of what is to come. 

They do not have to be good quality, and can be taken with cellphones/laptop cams/etc. The only thing I ask is that they are only of the specific body-part, although I can do some more specific cropping if you do not have that ability. 

The ideal image of your breasts should be from around your collar bone to anywhere under your breast. But do keep in mind these images are cropped to squares, and can use a bit of room around and underneath the breast to ensure nothing gets cut-off. 

The more I can accumulate, the better, so spread the word that this is a positive, uplifting environment for self-love, and anyone who wants to participate can. If you identify with having breasts - you’re in!

Every participant will remain anonymous but don’t worry, no one will be able to tell anyone else apart. I will also accept anonymous emails, if you’re feeling shy.

If you are comfortable with this idea, please send images to TooFatToBeHipster@gmail.com, or message me privately on tumblr (nothing will ever be published publicly).

You can also reblog this to help me spread the word! Thank you so much in advance for your support and participation. 

ya’ll know i love to show off my melons so i’ll for sure be sending in like……80 pictures to my babygirl like, tomorrow

you should too

THE WEBSITE IS UP! Please visit fatbodyinvisible.com for information about the documentary and how to purchase it. 

I am so completely thrilled to finally have this baby off the ground. I think the site is gorgeous and I am so excited for the future of my little film.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved thus far: my subjects Jessica and Keena, my co-editors Hannah and Ivana, the amazing women at Women Make Movies, Chris for his mad computer skills, Kyla for her equally awesome photography, and Alana for the best damn web design ever.

2012 is starting off with a bang, and I couldn’t be happier.

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
