Decolonizing beauty: Why are fat bodies the subject of so much hate and controversy?

#DecolonizingBeauty is an ongoing photography project by visual artist Saddi Khali and yesterday when we posted one of his gorgeous images on Instagram, it was really clear that some of y’all really hate seeing fat bodies.

One thought on “Fit is a Feminist Issue, Link Round Up #91

  1. I didn’t even notice there was a disability! After I started reading the article I had to look for it. Its saddens me how critical people are. Often I think women are hardest on their own selves-overly harsh it seems to me. All I saw was a picture if a beautiful pregnant lady.
