Jesus. I didn’t realize just how much time I spend looking at fat-positive blogs. Out of curiosity I searched the fat legs tag and…fuck. It’s so scary. I’m glad it didn’t make me feel self conscious; I’ve come a pretty long way since sixth grade with no real baggage. But it’s really terrifying knowing that it’s this big of a problem. It’s really everywhere. People with 20” waists really think they’re fat, and there’s people who think fat is a bad thing. And these are people I know, too, people I may be close to. And I don’t know how to change it. Count my lucky stars that it was fairly short-lived and I got out of it without any scars or hospitalizations? But then how do I help other people with it?
This is a dumb post. It’s just really shocking going through those tags, how real it is. Shit, society. How are we letting this happen?
