Ok. The NAACP is a civil rights organization. They will primarily get involved in civil rights as they pertain to race because it is more common that people of color will face racial discrimination or be lynched. This does not mean the NAACP hates white people or would in any way find it acceptable to discriminate against white people or be ok with a bunch of black people tying a white man to a truck and dragging him to his death.But if this is TRULY a "size acceptance" board, please explain the "Plus size Paysite" section, and all of the thousands of stories (one of which I WAS writing myself before all this happened) about fattening women up.
I see nothing about, for, or concerning skinny women, or fetishizing women LOSING weight here. So pardon my confusion when I question that statement, and find it bizarre that in a place that has a subforum simply for women to post pictures of how fat they've gotten, that so many women would bash me for my preferrences.
The Human Rights Campaign is a civil rights organization that focuses on fighting discrimination based on sexual orientation. It is more common for a gay, lesbian or transgendered person to be the victim of discrimination based on sexual orientation, however they have very openly spoken out against gay employers that have fired straight people.
Size Acceptance is more tilted toward fat people because they are more likely to face discrimination based on their size than skinny people are. Concurrently, there are men and women who have a sexual preference or interest or attraction to larger partners and they may experience negative feedback from friends and family. On this board, the fact that those sexual attractions exist are understood and discussed, as is feederism which is something of a "sub kink" if you will.
Had you been at the Heavenly Bodies Memorial Day party, you'd have seen the following. Waxwing and myself, sizes 8 and 10 respectively, running around having a great time. Nobody was anything but friendly and welcoming. Nobody called us skinny bitches or asked why we were there or told us to go hang with our own kind. This is size acceptance. At the same time, none of the FA's really noticed us in a sexual/potentially romantic way. Why? Because they are FA's and thus prefer to look at BBW's and SSBBW's.
