Look at nature. Look at flowers. We never walk into our garden and say "Oh wouldn't that flower be so much more pretty if it were taller? Or red instead of pink?" No, we don't. Because nature was created perfect just as it is. And so are we. We are part of nature, we are how we're meant to be, we are perfect just as we are.
BLESS THIS FUCKING CHILD OMG
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
Idk, I always felt the HP series had a lot of fat phobia in it. A lot of the ‘not nice’ characters were fat. Dudley and Vernon Dursley for instance. There were several parts in the books where Dudley was mocked for his weight. Peter Pettigrew was fat too. ‘Fat’ seems to be associated with ‘bad’, but not the suave kind of bad. Not the ‘bad’ like Draco Malfoy or young Tom Riddle, who are seen as bad guys, but you’re not meant to be disgusted by them. You’re meant to be fascinated by them. In a strange way, they’re still respected as villains (not saying Draco is a villain, but you get my point right?). That doesn’t happen with the fat characters though. They’re either meant to be laughed at, or you’re meant to feel disgusted by them.
Dudley and Uncle Vernon were fat in order to serve as a juxtaposition to Harry, who was a very skinny boy whose relatives STARVED him. They literally were meant to represent excess in contrast to Harry. They weren’t fat because the characters were assholes, they were spoiled, bad people that happened to be fat. PLUS, Dudley eventually became muscular, even though he was bulky, and channeled his energy into sports. He and Harry eventually made peace as well.
The bad characters, the characters that killed so many people and tortured others to insanity? They were thin. Voldemort’s thinness was emphasized, actually. Molly Weasley? She was plump but a strong, brave, intelligent woman that really looks out for her family.
JK Rowling even spoke out against fat shaming, saying this “I mean, is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’?”
You’re just looking for reasons to be offended, shut up.
