Welcome back! Today, I’m going to be talking about a topic that I feel is very important to touch on. Summer is just around the corner and it is getting hot outside, which means, people are going to be wearing less clothing.


Over the years, I have noticed that every summer, I find memes, posts, and blogs about how fat people shouldn’t be wearing revealing things like bathing suits, smaller clothing items, or anything that reveals their bodies.


I’ve grown sick of it and I find it awful that people who are living in larger bodies have to be oppressed from society because they aren’t “appealing” to others.


Living in a bigger body doesn’t define who you are as a person and your weight shouldn’t be used against you as a weapon to keep you hidden. The reality of fat-phobia is harsh and cruel.


Diet culture, social standards, and people who are fat-phobic keep walls around bigger bodies and push the idea that no one wants to see them live their lives and enjoy themselves because they are fat.


The majority of people being attacked for their weight are women.


Women who are living in bigger bodies are attacked for not looking appealing to men, for the public, and for outside eyes.


I want to break the stereotype that being fat is a bad thing, because it’s not. Your weight shouldn’t define you and it shouldn’t be used to keep yourself from enjoying the little things in life.


Everyone deserves to go to the beach wearing a two piece bathing suit without getting attacked with hateful words.


Everyone has the right to live their lives the way they want to.


They have a right to wear what they want to as well.


I’m not too sure who decided that being fat is ugly and that being fat is bad. I’ve lived in a bigger body all my life and I have felt, bled, cried, and experienced the same things that normal sized people have. We aren’t different, we just are built differently.


I want you to come out of this article and see that we are all the same and attacking someone for their weight is a form of discrimination.


That’s all I have for you today! Remember, be kind to others no matter their weight, race, skin color, or gender. Everyone is beautiful and deserves love! I’ll see you on the next Fashion Tips with Meg.
