Exclusive: Ellen Page is one of W Magazine's October 2014 cover stars!

I consider Ellen Page to be one of the beautiful people.  Physically and mentally she seems to be genuinely awesome.  I would love to buy the girl a beer and talk about cartoons.  That seems like it would be fun.
Which is why I hate this monstrosity.  Ellen Page is incredibly slender and tiny.  I bet I could fit ten of her in my pocket.  She is therefor the ideal for these fashion mags, who seem to value those who don’t take up space more than they do any other person.
So they have this, thin, tiny beautiful person and what do they do?  They photoshop her out of existence.  That is not a person.  That is a cypher.  A ghost.  A collection of pixels.  
No one is ever going to be good enough.  And this is proof.  I always thought there must be someone in the world who looks like the magazine covers do.  But now it is clear to me - they don’t exist.  Did they ever?

In response to anyone who thinks they have an fierce inner black woman in them and is not in fact, a black woman

See the thing about that fire and that “fierceness” is that it’s born out of our oppression, out of always being told that we are ugly, that our bodies are too fat or too muscular, that we don’t have the right kind of hair — and having to deconstruct all those things and tell ourselves that we are beautiful even though society is telling us that we are not.  

That strength is born out of always having to defend ourselves against white supremacy and anti-black-woman-patriachy. From years of not seeing ourselves represented in anything aligned with beauty, of buying products that are made to make us look like not ourselves.

So there is no way you could have an inner black woman in you. You have not experienced our struggle, you don’t know it, you haven’t lived it, and you can’t imagine it. 

See, you can’t sit with us, because we haven’t been able to sit at your table since our existence in this country. And while we were being excluded from your table we made our own, and it is fabulous and fly. And of course you now want to try and have a seat at our table, take our table, use it and ignore all the labor that went into creating THAT table.

But nah, sorry boo boo.

You ain’t never going to be us, you can try to wear your hair like us, you can try to dance like us, talk like us, wish you were us, but know this —

YOU-WILL-NEVER-BE-US

I am loving this picture. My rolls, my sick ass lightning tattoos on my fat tummy. I get messages from some of you guys, telling me I inspire you, or that my confidence gives you confidence. I hope I can continue to do that for you lovely, lovely babes.

I love when I see this post get a note months down the line. I like to think it still inspires everyone who sees it. Or at least those who need it. Keep on truckin’ and keep your heads up, my lovelies.

this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

!!!!!!!

my rant to Simply be’s facebook page. 

YOU TELL THEM GIRL, i’m tired of seeing girls who are size 16 advertising clothes that go up to size 30, I want to see how this dress looks on a big belly, if this neck line isn’t unflattering, if my arms will fit well in that sleeve, give me a model who’s size 26 with big belly and fat thighs!!!

Amen.

YES! We need models with big bellys and thighs asoslive simplybefashionhmstreetstyle newlooksocial I mean for god sakes there are plenty of plus size bloggers who will do it in exchange for promotion for their blogs!
