Anonymous said: Do you know of any blogs that promote body positivity for nonbinary people? The other anon asking about blogs or posts for men made me want to ask. Thank you!

I struggled to find blogs that were specifically body positivity for only non-binary trans folks, but here’s what I found:

Fat Genderqueers

Not specifically body positive, but good resources: The Non-Binary Safe Space especially their positive things tag, Fuck Yeah Transitioning Genderqueers, Genderqueer Pride, Genderqueer Positivity, & Genderqueer Identities (this blog has SO many resources)

Here are some that are primarily non-binary folks submitting photos of themselves/primarily image blogs: Fuck Yeah Non-Binary Fats, Non Binary Cuties, Hell Yeah Non-Binary Selfie Culture, Genderqueer

Same but not non-binary specific: Trans* Body Pride, DMAB Delightful, F Yeah Trans Fashion (a fashion blog but you might dig it), F Yeah Androgyny

And another primarily image (not non-binary specific) blog is Genderrific run by my dear pal Kaethe.

The tag nonbinary positivity might also be a tag you’re interested in.

And you might enjoy the Trans* Enough Project.

Apologies if any of these have problematic content as I’m not very familiar with all of them. 

And folks should feel free to reblog with more blogs!

There’s also nbselfielove :)

Thanks for tagging us!  This is a great list of blogs for non-binary folks!

The ad was in a women’s magazine and if I remember correctly, was for a perfume. It featured a white woman lying in bed with a black man. The man’s shirtless back was to the viewer, making only his taut, muscular form and powerful-looking arms and shoulders visible. He was faceless, unidentified. The woman looked sultrily at us from over his mysterious form, satisfaction writ large over her features. She had partaken of whatever delights this man had to offer and was smugly, luxuriantly basking in the afterglow.

The ad copy was, “Take a walk on the wild side.”

My teacher used the ad as an example of how marketers can use certain words and images to convey large amounts of information subtly and effectively. A white woman having sex with a black man? How risqué. The implication: be a little like that woman. Spray on that perfume and feel like the kind of girl who has sex with faceless, muscular black men in ritzy hotel rooms because it’s an adventure, a thrill, a risk, something illicitly pleasurable.

These are the semiotics of race. This is why columnists will trip over themselves not to call Lupita Nyong’o or Angela Basset “beautiful”, choosing instead to use terms that call to mind a kind of savage, animalistic magnetism: fierce, striking, edgy, eye-catching. Words like “pretty” and “beautiful” and “cute” are for white women whose bodies and sexualities are not seen as wild, animal, or untamed. Black men are hulking, threatening, thuggish; white men are charming, sexy heartthrobs with hearts of gold. Brown women are exotic, with their “honey-coloured” skin and their “mystical”, “enchanting” beauty, unlike their white counterparts, who are held up as not only ideal, but knowable and safe. White people are beautiful; non-white people are dangerous.

The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change.

I will always reblog this because it is so so important.

I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks. 

Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight? 

That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.
