Hi! I love love loveeee this blog ! I was wondering if you can help me out and maybe give my blog a shout out? I just started today and I would really appreciate it. Thanks :)
Meghan Tonjes on #FatShamingWeek.
Hey, guys. Like a lot of you, I have had my fair share of uneducated, distasteful individuals approach me and say things that are unkind and arrogant just because I’m fat. And yes, thankfully, when these clowns attempt to lay it on thick, I have essentially heard it all thereby making me almost impervious to their brand of finding self-worth.
However, sometimes I see something so ridiculously hateful and disgusting that it makes me sick to the very fiber of my being. #FatShamingWeek this past week was one of those things. It’s hard enough that people - especially young people - have to have their personal worth challenged every day by people who try to weaken them and bully them into believing that they must meet a societal standard to be worthy of anyone’s time, patience, and love.
I know I’ve talked about Meghan on my personal blog before and how brilliant her videos are. This video is no exception and should be a must watch for everyone because it’s so blunt, so honest, and it comes from a place so pure and genuine because - SPOILER - this is not a laughing matter.
And what can we do to respond? I say take back the tag on Twitter. Use the hashtag and turn it on its head. Take the power away from people who are using it to spread ill will and half-hearted antipathy.
And, as always, keep it classy.
This is quite possibly the best tumblr I have come across. You guys are all looking very, very good and oh so fly. Keep on it!
