And now a message to our boys: You matter. Just because you’re not a bulging beefcake doesn’t mean girls aren’t going to like you, Just because you’re not a thin as a rod doesn’t mean you’re unattractive. Just because your looks doesn’t meet someone’s preference doesn’t mean you’re undateable. If you want to change your appearance you have to accept it first. You’re not weak, you’re not disposable, and you do not deserve to die.

Every terrible thing that has been said about my body or the body of another fat person has stuck with me through out the years whether I wanted them to or not, And those things will always come back to me when I am at my most vulnerable.
My fatness is more than just how I look. It’s shaped my personality. I was made so hyper aware of my body that even now it’s impossible to do anything without being forced to remember what my body looks like and what people may or may not think about it.
