Recently, thank the heavens that Amber Riley pounded back some drink and asked in a Body Shamer Address to end all Body Shamer Addresses. Stop it with your Gettysburg address and your “I had a Dream,” Amber Riley is DA BEST.
The Glee star said:
“Why does me being fat is it because I’m confident Do my thighs offend Does my stomach offend Does my bi juicy ass offend? Why? Why? Let my big ass live. I let y’all live. I love all colors, shapes and sizes. It’s not an insult dummy, my ass is fat and the fellows love it, and so do I. why the fact that she loves her body was so offensive to people?”
Anyway, we’ve got another woman blowing up silliness on deck. Michelle Marie, internet body positive warrior, is fighting the good fight against eating disorders with words and pictures, and today she tweeted this half-body selfie. Because, yes it makes total sense that people are alarmed when they see a woman with rolls out and about going through the moves of her life. But when women who are larger do appear in the wilds, no one dies, and it hurts no one. Everyone can go on with their days, their selfies and themselves. Here’s evidence that it’s possible because that’s just how magical life is for Carrie from Sex and the City and everyone.
(Marie doesn’t model fashion, she models to battle negative body image.) For more intimate and arresting portraits of her body, confessional tales, and evidence that thick girls, but girls period are winning, see her Insta. Just some rolls world, carry on.
Busy being fat in public again. The world still hasn't ended. It's okay to be fat. pic.twitter.com/IOH9GlKEDa
