Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?

Absolutely.

And does that suck?

Absolutely.

But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege. By Let’s Talk About Thin Privilege — Everyday Feminism (via fatisattractive)

pherie:

have you ever just looked at someone and gotten the strongest urge to kiss them and feel how soft their lips are and how their tongue feels against yours and have you ever wanted to kiss them softly and hold their face in your hands and feel the texture of their lips like wow kissing

Finished it!

I wanted to post the final drawing along with some actual pics of Baby Boi.

I picked daisies and baby’s breath for his flower crown because they both symbolize innocence and gentleness.  u w u

Here’s some backstory on this dude:

Three years ago our dog training mentor was driving down the highway and sees this guy tied up to a post under an underpass— skin and bones and left to die.

She cuts him loose and hefts this three-year-old mastiff/pitbull mix into her car and guns it to the vet.

When the vet scans him for a microchip, they find he’s tagged to an animal shelter.

Baby Boi had been adopted out and the person didn’t want him anymore, so they decided the best thing to do was leave him tied on that highway.

The vet asked our mentor if she planned to take him back to that shelter and she looked at him and said “Oh no— he’s coming home with me.”

Three years later and he’s a therapy dog, LOVES children and other dogs, is a HUGE moosh and is super super attached to his mommy (the picture with his ears up is him waiting for her to come back after being told to stay put.  He cries softly and holds position until she comes back).

This is a dog that has every reason to be wary or even be aggressive to humans and he is the complete opposite.  It goes to show how much of a bad rep the breed really gets because 99% of the rescued pits I’ve met are like this— even ones from HORRIFIC abuse cases.

She’s told us so many stories about this character, so I thought it’d only be appropriate to make a picture of him my thank-you gift for teaching me how to be a dog trainer.  :>
