Body Positivity for the win.
9 out of 16 are WoC from 9 different nationalities - Spanish, Native American, Middle Eastern, Greek, Hawaiian, South African, Indian, African-American and Chinese.
Even the “white” people don’t all come from the same place - French, Irish, American, Scottish, German, and English.
I’m really sorry if I left out YOUR nationality or YOUR body type, but if I kept going to include every single possible woman in the world I’d never have time for sleep or school work.
I’m the kitteh, and my sinuses are the ungrateful human. And it feels like someone set off a few sparklers inside my cranium. Oooowch.
This is how I feel today, except no one said yes.
Curvy Yogi Appreciation (Part V)
[because yogis come in all shapes and sizes]
New goal- I wanna look like the girl in the orange. And kick lots of a$$.
And eat hamburgers while doing one armed push ups.
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
Swordy sword sword!
Dress for your Body Type
by Angela Pabón
The actual posmodern society through mass media, creates an endless cicle of deception and frustration in today’s women. A war against the weighing balance and the mirror, that ties women to a fantasy ideal of a body and a poor body image.
In this proyect I wish to speak about the bodies that have been excluded in the present cultural-historic moment. Absent bodies, because they’re not represented and are excluded, in a society where all the present bodies have to correspond to the homogeneus model promoted by the media. Bodies like mine, that are out of the beauty and health norms of society.
Through watercolors and self-portrait as an expressive tool, I wish to expose mi body in different situations of passive frustration, when I encounter myself with the fashion industry; where my body is absent in its size and design rank.
This is the first painting of my four real-scale self-portraits.
210cm (6.8 feet) high by 270cm (8.8 feet) wide. Watercolors and collage on Fabrianno watercolor paper.
I agree do you?
all of this
Agree 100%. I want spiffy awesome clothes in my size that aren’t all stupid, old-looking, and floral printed. I HATE FLORAL.
I was pissed about that before I was plus sized, actually :-/
This weekend I was told a story which, although I’m kind of ashamed to admit it, because holy shit is it ever obvious, is kind of blowing my mind.
A friend of a friend won a free consultation with Clinton Kelly of What Not To Wear, and she was very excited, because she has a plus-size body, and…
