Feminism demands a future free of fat shaming, body obsession and the male gaze.
To the Stretch Marks on My Breasts
I have a confession to make. My breasts remind me of watermelons. No, they aren't as heavy or as large as watermelons, well, maybe those mini watermelons that are roughly the size of a cantaloupe. My breasts remind me of watermelons because their stretch marks are reminiscent of the light green striations against the darker green color of a watermelon rind.
Please Don't Bond With Me Over My Cellulite
My new coworker went to her son's Little League game, and she wanted to tell me all about it. I listened patiently. Neither children nor baseball are among my interests, but I wanted to be polite.
Don't Hide Under Blankets
Trigger Warning - Sexual Assault When you’re hurting, you’re usually hurting a lot of people around you. I sure as hell did that, and I’m sorry.
I Am Fat
But more than that, I want to stop hating my body. Fat is an ugly word, isn’t it? Let’s not use that word. But I’m stuck right? I’m talking about a very sensitive issue and I’m doing it in a public forum and all I have is words at my disposal. I want to tell you that society hurts me when they consider me fat. That it hurts that family members and friends have called me that to my face and I’m sure behind my back.
Body shaming hurts ten times worse when it's YOU who is doing the shaming! I'm being transparent and sharing a personal journey of mine while bringing new meaning to the phrase "love the skin you're in!" I took the picture you see last month and it was an unexpected moment of breakthrough for me! See, I typically would only take pics from the chest up or just a simple selfie. I had not felt confident about taking full body pictures of myself since high school, which was many years ago. I was out with friends wearing the dress you see in the picture. It was new and I felt like showing it off a little so I decided to wear it not knowing that day would be a life changing moment to remember! Everything was fine until one of my friends asked me to take a picture in my new dress. I immediately shook my head and told him I didn't want any full body pics and he didn't understand why I was feeling the way I did. He and the rest of my friends kept telling me how beautiful I looked in my dress and how I should really have a picture taken.

Post Partum Depression, my experience.
Its not a real thing they say. PPD is just something that you are putting in your head. "you're just crazy", they said. I had my first born when I was 25. She was born in 2019, so she just turned two. Being pregnant with her was amazing, It was everything I thought the experience would be. From having back pain, to sciatic pain, to not being able to walk a block with out gasping for air. It sounds horrible, but that's what pregnancy is and feels like. At least for me it did the first time around. Towards the end of my pregnancy something went down hill. I was having contractions, got to the hospital and after being in Labor for over 32 hours she was finally born. My first born. Prior to her I had a miscarriage when I was only 18. Things happen for a reason and back then I was definitely not ready to have a child just how I was not ready to have this child. Or so I thought I was ready.
Middle School Mystery

In February 2020, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was detected early, and the tumor appeared small, but I had to choose between a lumpectomy plus radiation, or mastectomy with reconstruction. The hardest part about this decision was the fact that I had finally become comfortable in my own skin. In my mind, it is truly just a body, but it is the body I’ve spent my entire life coming to terms with! However, If I opted for a double mastectomy plus reconstruction, I could choose a breast size that worked with standard clothing sizes!
