Like Marianne most of my day to day has fuck all to do with being fat.
I work, I commute, I do stuff.
And then shit happens.
To quote Marianne:
The most damage and harm ever done to me because of fat has nothing to do with my fat and everything to do with how I am treated because of it.
For me this usually manifests itself (mainly because of how my body is shaped and sized) when I'm trying to shop. I don't own a TV thus I don't get a lot of popular culture that way and I've learned to filter out 99% of other cultural bullshit surrounding fatness.
For me Fat Acceptance on a personal level is the hardest on me (emotionally speaking) when shit happens that I can do fuck all about.
When I really need X thing and not one place that I can afford offers it in my size but every place I can't afford (yes plus size stores normally) does.
The moments that hit me the hardest though are when I hear or read women going to town on their bodies or other peoples bodies in a bad way and I know there is fuck all I can personally do about it.
Honestly, there are times when I think that I have run out of things to say about fatness and FA. I figure that there are better people to talk about these things and that I should shut it.
And then I think about the fact that there are a bajillion people in the world who really need to hear these things and there are some folks who can do wit hearing them from me.
So I keep talking.
And I say you keep talking too.
I know it's hard sometimes. I know sometimes it would be way more satisfying to just say fuck it but don't.
I think that's all from me today. I'm tired and I have some other writing to get done tonight.
