therapeuticmetaphor:

fat-grrrl-activism:

★ this is a nice video about how you can react to fat shaming. i like how it focuses on empowerment (although being confident is not easy in a fatshaming world, so it’s also perfectly fine if you have other strategies to deal with fat hate.)

★ in dem englischen video geht es um schlagfertige antworten auf beleidigungen im alltag inklusive einer guten portion empowerment. selbstbewusstsein ist cool, aber da jede*r von uns anders mit normierenden situationen umgeht, sind auch andere reaktionen, die sich für dich gut anfühlen, cool.

This is brilliant and helpful. Also, the woman in the video is GORGEOUS.  

My favorite line: “Are you pregnant?” - “No, but the night is young!” 

I also really appreciated the interaction with the little kids, because I never know what to say when a child says something negative about my body. Either the kid is really young and just making a judgementless observation, or they’re repeating something they’ve heard from adults. I loved her response in the video because it doesn’t shame the child and it teaches as an important lesson.
