Day 121: Dear world,

Fat Black people exist. We catch shit for being Black and we catch shit for being fat. We would greatly appreciate it if you didn’t ignore the fat hatred in your rush to call out racism.

Fat Black women also exist too. We catch shit for being fat, for being Black, and for being women. We get that special mix of fatphobia and misogynoir that renders us invisible and hypervisible at the same damn time. Don’t ask me how that works. I just know it’s a thing.

It is entirely possible to address two (or even three) problems at once. Oh, and if your “solution” to fat hatred is something along the lines of “just lose weight” you can promptly go fuck yourself.
