Yes, from the bottom of my heart, I love being a fat queer. A 300 pound, masculine looking, biowoman who only gets annoyed with being any of those things when rude people feel they have a right to offer up their negativity to me or people like me in public. Luckily, because I do a good job of not caring what they think, this public display happens very rarely with me.

I say this because it took me a very long time to truly mean what I wrote above, and so I think if others are struggling, and they want to reach a place where they fully accept their bodies, it is possible. For some, that means an aggressive and overt self-love, for others, it means an understanding of the balance at play in the universe and one's own self, and for others it means a million other things. The key is acceptance, right? Acceptance and love are not the same thing, so can we all at least agree on the idea that coming to self acceptance, regardless of your own beliefs about what a fat identity should be, is a good thing for us all?
