F*cking Diet Culture

F*cking Diet Culture

The frustration that we have felt in buying eco-friendly, sustainable pieces in curvy sizes does not compare to the frustration people in curvy bodies feel when clothes shopping.


I have been doing a lot of research trying to find sustainable size inclusive brands. There are so few. Why is it that sustainable, environmentally friendly pieces are not made in extended sizing?


Diet culture.

 

F*cking diet culture.

I am a Feminist

I am a Feminist

I  am a feminist and I am a mother. I believe in equity for people of all genders and raising my sons to value kindness and respect for all people. I believe in a woman’s right to choose how they want to live their life without the influence of the patriarchy. The patriarchy is where men hold the power and are the main decision makers and women’s voices are mostly silenced. We live in a patriarchal society. It is slowly getting more equal, but there are still SO many expectations put on people identifying as women.
The Patriarchy and Diet Culture

The Patriarchy and Diet Culture

Diet culture is rooted in the patriarchy. Diet culture survives off of keeping women contained, small, quiet, and unheard.⁣

Love is an action, not a feeling

Shifting the way we look at body acceptance to more of a fluid dance, knowing it is ok to move from acceptance to peace to body positivity to neutrality is a great step. Life is all about a fluid, ever changing, dance. Making peace with our bodies has to start somewhere. And wherever you are in your journey, honor it.
The Deeper Harm of Diet Culture

The Deeper Harm of Diet Culture

"Diet culture has engrained in us that, as women, we are defined by our bodies. We are taught from a very early age to be small, pretty, quiet, fragile. We are taught this is what it means to be feminine. A woman’s body is not an object. Our bodies are not something for other people to comment on."
Health is not a size.

Health is not a size.

Health is not a size. Health is not a weight. We have been conditioned to associate the size of our bodies with our health. Healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. What is healthy for my body is different than what is healthy for your body.
