No Can Say What (Auto) Completes Me

Pin It
I had to jump on today to help spread the word of what's happening in the Body Positive community. One of my heroes, The Militant Baker has started an auto complete series on her blog that is amazing! Have you ever gone to Google and began a search only to have auto complete scare the hell out of you by what it suggests? If you ever want to know what the world thinks of women, feminists, and fat people, just head on over to your favorite search engine and type in the words "Fat people need to . . ." and see what happens.

In my opinion, fat people (like me!) need to:
  • Be heard
  • Be respected
  • Be loved
  • Feel free
  • Live our lives free of body shaming and bullies
But according to auto complete, fat people (like me) need to: 
  • Die
  • Lose weight
  • Stop complaining
  • Stop eating
And yes, in that order! Apparently the popular opinion isn't that we all just need to stop eating, complaining or lose weight (all suggestions alone are body shaming bullshit) but no, apparently the number one thing that I NEED to do . . . is die.

Because as we all know, skinny people live forever.

I was happy to jump on board with The Militant Baker and make my own poster.

Join in yourselves and make your own poster with your slogan that challenges body shaming hate, and submit it to The Militant Baker on her FB Page.

Yea, you know. Because losing weight is as easy as not eating or switching from cheeseburgers to salads. Riiigghht. *sarcasm*

I'm not proud to be fat nor do I like how my body is right now but I'll be damned if I am insulted or treated like crap because I don't fit a certain mold. That goes for you and anyone else who is overweight.

No one deserves to be body-shamed. Ever.

See and that's totally okay for you! I AM proud to be fat, because that's where I'm at in life right now, and I shouldn't be shamed for it, and you shouldn't be shamed while you do your own thing. So tired of everyone policing one another about how they look. So stupid.

Police each other over a lack of kindness and love.
