- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
When have I said thin people didn’t have the right to love themselves? Oh right, never, because being anti body snark / pro body positivity doesn’t mean you can’t discuss privileges and forms of oppressions linked to size.
On the other hand, you’re giving yourself the right to decide wether people deserve mental safety or not. I feel responsible for my followers’ health. You’ve got a problem with this? Go ahead and unfollow, I couldn’t care any less. I shouldn’t feel personally responsible for you getting uncomfortable over a hashtag.
Everyone read this, I’m going to sleep.
Hi! Thank you!
Quite a lot actually! You might want to start with websites with a big selection of brands, so I’d try Asos (Don’t forget to look at the promotions), Figleaves, Hepburn & Leigh, Modcloth, My Retro Closet and Journelle (US only) first.
As for brands, here are the ones on top of my mind but there are many many others : Huit, Gossard, Kiss Me Deadly, Dita Von Teese, Mimi Holliday, Ohhh Lulu, Playful Promises, Marks & Spencer, Topshop, Harlow & Fox, Panache, Blush, Fleur of England,
Hope this helps!
No one ever said that thin bodies were not acceptable. I’m just tagging them for people with EDs because it’s probably the only place where they can avoid them. I don’t know how it is in other countries, but here you just have to open a magazine or the TV and all you see is thin women. This society makes us feel like we need to be thin to be acceptable, respectable, loved, healthy, successful, and so on. So no offense but this is not about you.
It’s a bit how I feel too, plus the context is not the same. It’s not that I consider thin bodies as a negative body image either but thinness is so glorified all the time and everywhere so it’s not really a two-way road.
Ah thank you for the suggestion, this is what I might do if I’m ever asked to. I guess the most logical thing in this eventuality would be keeping “body image tw” as it is currently and tagging all pictures with worn items something random for people who need to avoid every body-types.
Anyway, I’d rather close this debate, I’m not sure getting anxious over a purely hypothetical issue is the best idea for me right now since I already have a lot to deal with.
@stephanievex : Yeah, but when I was asked to it was specifically thin bodies. I think it makes sense, since one might want to simultaneously avoid the sight of thin bodies not to get triggered and see curvy/fat bodies to gain confidence. Which is why I wouldn’t want to use the same tag if I was asked to. But I still don’t know what tag I should use then.
@lady-of-the-woodlands : I think this is what I’ll do for now!
I’ve already heard about it, but I’m a bit unsure since :
What do you all think?
Thank you for your support!
It’s not even about being considerate, it’s just perfectly normal. As someone who has quite an unhealthy relationship with food and my body, I’ve learned to shut down my negative thoughts but I know it’s important to have safe places where you can put down your mental shields. Not many blogs use this tag at the moment but don’t hesitate to ask, good bloggers shouldn’t have a problem with this!
Take care, beautiful <3
