Alright, anyone. I assumed that now than we have been capable to launch a fewer mindful social discussions regarding struggles, morals and issues within the F.A. community-- or from a broader aspect the intrinsically woven interrelationship between heavier indivividuals (most especially women) and how Western society treats them as time goes, it can be interesting to push a little further ourselves out of our usual mind-numbing escapism by discussing a topic that wholeheartedly sting on me for a while and which is, the deficient shower of mutual respect between women who provides content of their bodies and the "fans" . It's been perhaps nigh of a year I am pretty much vocal every once-and-again about the treatment some "creeps" as we name them hold toward heavier women. Same as I had been pretty much louder about how some of those same women whose business models revolves about their bodies - whether fuller-figured or enlarging - but remains nonetheless resentful and outwardly condescending toward the Fat Admiring community as a whole, in spite being aware it pretty much constitutes their source income, simply because it is so easy to dissociate themselves from a fringe "fetishist" community (and I'm parenthesing the "fetishist" word because resuming the community as simply that is merely reductionist and perverse) . And well, be free to share your points of views. I'm going to share a few examples.
Yesterday, I felt nagged by an increasing urge to re-subscribe into a rather popular, mainstream size-friendly wannabe reddit group page I just decided to quit a while ago. By "wannabe", I mean it: a vocal majority of the membership resumes itself into nothing but women still stuck into the self-flagellating phase of their body complex issue. I publish a first discussion topic: "P.A.W.G. is the most preposterous colloquial coining ever made: its outmoded racialist overtones obvious" or something. Nonetheless unsatisfied, I'd immediatly spiced up my initial intent: I shared the post into a kinky F.A. reddit page. Afterward, I posted a second topic on the mainstream group page thay has been shared too on the kink page: "When "Steatopygia" among black women turns into a way too bottom-heavy "Advanced Staging Lipoedema" , "P.A.W.G.s" or "ride breeches/pelvicellulite/Steatomery" for others-- or why Western contemporary medias & academics shall stop giving to Steatopygia any racial overtone" . Success unblocked. The kink page - assumedly frequented by the same type of obnoxious, antisocial pig-slurring neckbeards who likes bleating about the heterogenous nature of my discussion topic publishing on F.A. forums - votes down my two posts while some random member with a funny-sounding pseudo popped on my alert feed with a verbally charged rant preceded by the all-American "st**" , pompously accusing me to "polluate" the "last shelter against politics" and "race politics" or some redundantly debilitating bs on this vein that kay have been as well resumed ny a good ol' fashioned "s%$t up n@&ger/libtard/whatever" (which still happens way much than some of you readers may assume) . Y'all shall tip me off the day that cellulite skin, large hips, ballooning gluteus maximas and their colourblind nature are going to be on the news feed on the White House or the Canadian Parliament, (giggles) . 🙄😏 Might still be way much instructive than four years worth of psychotically violent tweeted rants and downward loophole into diplomatic disgrace, though... Back to the main focus, first few hours later and an angry female member is already stepping forward for a fight, half-threateningly asking me to get out with my so-called "kink" stuff and "post history" antics. A few rapid clicks later, she has gone M.I.A. after I scolded her silly MacCarthism and reminded her that a significant brunt of the page group content deal with sexuality and women posing suggestively, so getting angry about a previous post made about the commonality of the so-called Fat Fetishism in both Plus Size and non-heavier sexuality (and outside of its oft mob-minded fetish cart-- ahem I mean F.A. online community) is not the end of the world. Then, the next day later, I received from a female member of the mainstream page this reply about the topic on P.A.W.G.s : SOMEBODY: "The fact is, historically rounded & bigger asses was only found on African women. If white women was out here built like women from the country of Africa, Sara Baartmen wouldn't have been so popular. The fact is, in the US, big booties, thick hips & thighs have been synonymous with black women. White women spend a fortune to have abody that African women were born with. So to see a white women built like a black women, she is a PAWG period." Loud internal facepalm. More dense than that and I die. She did the one thing every single ill-assumed racist web-goer did, so to speak spewing out loud her implicit bias and taking the bait that would lead to racist folks' most-feared Boogeyman... not John Wick, of course... just an epically sound spanking to shatter anyone's Becky-made bubbles and some therapeuthic, paradox-shifting cognitive growth. 😏😁 ME: "Your statement is plain speculative and wrong because historically speaking, rounded & bigger asses has been reported and recorded multiple times all over South Asia, Western Asia, ancient Greece, the Italic Etruscan civilization and the Iberic Peninsula for a major part of Antiquity. The Myceaneans, Minoans, Hellenes, Italians, Levantines, Arabians, Mesopotamians, Iberians and even some Gallic tribes in Northwest Europe left various artifacts showing women with a moderatly to exceedingly plump, rounded buttocks and wide hips coupled by signs of pronounced Steatometry (or ride breeches, if you prefer) and archeological evidence reports since early 20th centuury that the female population of protohistorical hunter-gathering and latter Neolithic groups all across the British, Western, Southwestern, Southern and Central Europe sported frequently such traits from the Lower Paleolithic till afar as the Bronze Age. Biblical texts reports that ancient Israelite women were disencouraged by religious authorities from being sexually promiscuous prior marriage or to cuckhold their husbands under the threat from being immediatly smitten by their God with a curse that physically alters their bottom half bodies and resembles like a variation of bug-infested Cellulitis coupled by Steatopygia, which indicates that the latter one was an existing condition among the Hebrews, all theologically associated with divine punishment and infidelity in wedlock. Islamic hadiths and oral legends hints that the Arabian religious leader & prophet Muhammad's daughter, Fatima, sported during her premature later years an immense derriere as she has dived upward and heavier through the whole weight spectrum... just enough to need the assistance of a few servantmaids to lift her up afoot on a regular basis. Such pronounced callipygia was commonplace among women of any size and most any different ethnic background from whether Western Asia, India or North Africa across the latter Islamic world, as openly implies some erotic texts and tales from the 9th century A.D. Arab-Persian book 'One Thousand & One Nights' . So yea... the fact you're parroting a popular misconception embedded deeply into late modern colonialist views of plumpness & obesity along feminine bodies from far dubious claims rooted into sicentific racism, that has been discredited and refuted one hundred eight years ago by French academicians who were studying Steatopygia among native-born Frenchmaids (e.g. socalled Caucasian women) , is the one reason WHY this topic needs to be tackled once at all, whether it displeases some group of men or not." And for a first time since never, I get voted up four times and the interlocutor is the one who get voted down as many times... just before a tandem of twits did retaliatively votes me down as well as votes her up. Ignorance is a grudgeful bliss. Still, it was funny to see people from whatever spectrum of the Fat community getting owned withot having some random power hungry narcissist monitoring and censoring either I or anyone's instructive point made like a freaking David Rohl novel film adaptation with a heavyset, mean looking busty Nazi expy who spent her time eating chocolate, benchpressing weights and bullying people for archvillain (yea you hear me, shout out to 'Maltida') . Something has been deplorably lost in the Anglophone Fat movement lately, not just the F.A. online community: the element of freedom of speech, enlightement and betterment over ignorance, tribalism, shallowness and chauvinism. We can point our fingers at OF, social medias, the travesty of Body Positivity, FF, Curvage, DM, ** whatever as the cause of all of that, but to be honest the issue is as skin-deep as the implicit biases behind bottom-heaviness among white bodies and coloured bodies. Society is the one true boogeyman everyone tries to escape, but refuses to actually feed off while deshinbiting themselves behind their keyboard. I need to see what women on Curvage thinks about it. Any opinions?
What do you think about this video, anyone??
...Or How a Fat, Apple-Shaped Black Woman's Contrarian "Clout-Trolling" Ever Challenges New Depths of Misogyny, Sexualization, Misogynoir & the Indignant Bigot in this Social Media Era. How spreading your cheeks at a sexualization-friendly cultural event full of sweaty musclebound men (mostly) of colour and full-bodied women in skimpy outfits while being Lizzo, keep unvealing us a way much lot about the flaws and lies that American society-- let alone Western society, keep telling to itself.
Found this site via another model posting on Google. So, I thought I'd poke around...just exploring the site. Is Curvage more like a porn site (e.g., ManyVids), plus sized social site, or both? Anyone here in the Kansas City area?
