I’m not sure what you mean about Lizzo? Are you saying that it’s only okay for fat people (or women in general) to be sexy if they do it in a docile way? Lizzo is amazing, and has done so much for body liberation.

Your comments about fat women being insecure are a little tone deaf. There is a REASON that people in fat bodies are insecure, and it’s mostly because we’ve been told for years and years that we are unacceptable, unattractive, unworthy of okay treatment etc.

Yes, saying everyone knows that weight isn’t healthy” is on the edge of offensive to me. It’s inaccurate. I’m at my heaviest I’ve ever been and also at my healthiest. You have no idea what someone’s health is by their body shape, and even if you did, why is it your business or concern? This is a good piece to check out in that regard:

Saying that “they should acknowledge their weight for its bad side” is absolutely offensive. You are equating being fat with badness. That’s the exact kind of stigma we need to dismantle.

I don’t really understand how you can call me “hot,” and turn around at the same time and say that I must be bad/unhealthy because of my weight??
