very chubby bunny here for body posi goodness. chubbicult.tumblr.com is my mate. I am a 30 yr old, white pansexual from the u.s.a. and a dfab nonbinary peep who accepts all pronouns but currently prefers they/them. into writing, inclusive feminism, fatshion and cute things. welcome. :D

After she came up to me and said, “I’ve been with my partner for 20 years… We would never get married because he’s on social security income, and because my daughter is disabled I have secondary income from the state to support my daughter. If I got married, both my benefits and his benefits would be reduced because we would become a double income family.”

She was explaining that marriage doesn’t work for poor people, and that it doesn’t work for disabled people. Having really simple examples like hers are important.

What if the LGBTQ movement fought for prison abolition rather than same-sex marriage? (via disabilityhistory)

this is important. for a lot of low income folks on government benefits, marriage is against their financial self-interest. trying to put a dollar amount of the symbolic value of marriage is hard.

ATTN: Somebody try and get everybody in ferguson to do this or be aware #RECALL4MIKE that’s been spreading like wildfire on here and get it on twitter. The time to act is now while we still have momentum, once they know they can remove the mayor, they can remove the chief of police and the police that protected Darren Wilson which in turn will make them vulnerable!

Go to my “Justice” tab and spread it on twitter, Facebook, & email. The people of ferguson HAVE the power to recall these horrendous characters in this tragedy & then they will be able to PINPOINT their anger and deal a crushing blow!

This ain’t a game, this is THE GAME CHANGER

(body image issues tw)

why do I even follow blogs all about skinny androgyny (that are almost all pics of white dfab people anyway haha diversity what is that)

like whyyyy do I do this to myself, I am never going to look like that, I shouldn’t want to look like that. I’m so tired of getting down on myself about my fatness. every time I gain weight though, so much of my progress toward self-love just shrivels away

my body just feels more and more unmistakably womanly with each size I increase and I don’t know why i keep gaining weight lately. I hate feeling like it’s out of control like this I just want to stabilize or maybe go back a few sizes or so and sometimes I don’t care how I would get there

and I thought at some point I would be too old for this shit and I would grow out of it haha

no one ever says that Rome needed help from aliens to build their empire

If I could be so bold as to ask- what’s the big deal w/ being called #fat? Is it against the laws of human existence for a person to be called both beautiful & fat? Is that why I get messages from y’all requesting that I not call myself fat- because it’s somehow improbable for me to drop the F-bomb & value my physical appearance at the same time?
Nah, that’s some bullshit. Fat is fucking fierce. It’s time we all got on the same page. Say it loud- I’m fat and I’m proud.
Stay tuned for the first pose of the #SizeDoesntMatter #yoga challenge- I’ll post it later tonight!

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people are not
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

I actually enjoy the fact that this daily reminder is literally on my dash daily. 

Woooooow this post is all kind of fucked up

You cannot reduce systems of oppression down to individuals and declare them “racist/bad” vs “non-racist/good” (or “sexist/bad” “non-sexist/good” or “transphobe/bad” “non-transphobe/good” etc etc)… and expect to actually address, and work to dismantle, systems of oppression that way!

Not to mention, all people in privileged groups benefit from that privilege and trying to exempt some as “the good ones” is denying that basic reality! And it also presumes that being anti-oppression is a static state of being one can achieve rather than constant daily work one must engage in…

basically: being a good person and dismantling oppression- you’re doing it wrong!!

shout out to all the closeted/semi closeted trans/nonbinary/non-cis-IDing people starting school for the year

your identities are all valid no matter how many or few people you’ve come out to, you’ll do great (try your best that’s all we can ask), and I am so proud of all of you; you can do this ☆〜(ゝ。∂)

The True Trayvon Martin

  • He didn’t eat pork bc his father didn’t. Once his uncle fixed pork chops; they smelled so good,he called them “beef chops” & ate 1.
  • He was passionate about aviation.
  • When he volunteered at a soup kitchen for. The first time, he was astounded by the US hunger crisis.
  • He loved his little cousins birthday parties. Even as a teen, he wasn’t too cool for Chuck E. Cheese.
  • He was modest about saving his father from dying in a house fire. His father called him his best friend bc of it.
  • Hoodies made *him* feel safe. Like so many teens (and adults), he wore them as a protective shell, a security garment.
  • He called his dad, “My ol’ boy.” Lord, how he loved his dad.
  • When folks wanted to tease him, they said, “Boy, you too skinny to take a breath.” And he’d just smile.
  • If he wanted to hang out with his cousins and they had chores, he helped so they could finish faster.
  • His uncle said they never had to ask him to do something twice.
  • At 17, he was still into BMX bikes. He could cat-walk wheelie.
  • The tattoo on his wrist read, “Sybrina.”
  • The tattoo on his chest read, “Cora” — his grandmother’s name.
  • I’m going to stop here. But just claim one of these memories I tweeted. Carry part of this boy with you, write him on your heart.
  • Write the beautiful details of all the black children you meet on your heart. That’s where they’ll be safest.
  • I feel like this stuff is important.
