When I Write of Hunger

Ask me anything   “Like most humans, I am hungry...our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it...”

   Preserve fresh herbs by freezing them with olive oil in an ice tray. When you’re ready to use them, simply drop cubes in a hot pan, and get cooking!

Anonymous asked: How dare you act like you're such an advocate for fat girls when you post a whiny little rant about how you don't like your body because oh poor you having glorious breasts makes "the lines" look all wrong. How dare you act like an advocate for fat acceptance while posting egotistical shots of yourself seeking attention for your "on point" outfits. You're so full of shit. Sit down, skinny white girl.


Answer:

WOW so you come to my food blog to leave an anonymous message because the anon on my main blog is turned off? That is dedication, my friend. 

Let’s get a couple things straight: 1) my breasts ARE glorious, and 2) my outfits ARE always on point. So, why are we getting all upset over empirically established facts? 

Please take a gander through my fatphobia tag and see for yourself how little I whine about how hard it is to be a skinny white girl.  Please do that. 

I am a person. I am a woman person who has feelings about my body. 

I am a woman person who has feelings about her breasts and how sexualized they are and about how I feel significant body dysmorphia due to that sometimes. I am a woman person who has a history of eating disorders and is constantly working through my feelings towards my own body. 

I am allowed to discuss those feelings, on their own, without reference to anyone else’s bodies. 

I am allowed to exercise the same rights everyone else has to post pictures of myself on my blog. I am allowed to post pictures talking about how fabulous I am as a means to actually start believing that I’m fabulous. 

I am allowed to publicly work through my self-esteem and body image issues even though I am thin. 

My body image issues are my own and I am not going to sit down and shut up about them just because you don’t think they’re legitimate or valid. 

(NB: I will never and have never claimed that I have it worse than my bigger sisters, but I will never ever lend credence to bullshit like this that would have me believe that I don’t “deserve”, in some perverse way, to have complex feelings about my body.)
