A Screen & Cultural Studies major whose hobbies include refreshing her YouTube subscriptions feed, getting emotionally invested in TV shows and baking things. I like piercings, musicals and Spider-Man.
so after ages of being healed and fine my nose suddenly got super super sore a couple of days ago. i’ve been doing chamomile soaks, but they don’t seem to be helping. :/
idk if i did something to it in my sleep or what, but fuck man.
This is a life-size pre-cast clay sculpture of a naked fat woman. The model is Julie Srika. The sculptor is Ramon Sierra. I think it’s beautiful and important. Breathtaking, even. Two days ago I shared it on Facebook, with the permission of both the model and the artist. Many people responded to it as I did. Facebook then deleted the thread and removed the photo from the model’s account, citing it as being in violation of their “community standards.” Appeals to Facebook have yet to be answered.
I think this is a disturbing anti-art stance, particularly vexing, considering Facebook allows far more sexually suggestive photos and sanctions pages designed to promote bigotry and bullying. Yet an amazing piece of art depicting a fat woman in proud non-sexual repose must go.
So while this is not the traditional fare for Uppity Fatty, I’m posting it here so more people can see it without the small-minded interference of Facebook’s double-standards.

do that bit by bit thing. focus on small bits at once and dont start with the introduction because that always makes it harder. also, eat stuff and rest and drink lots of water!
