Anonymous asked: I am just going to say, this blog is miraculous. By me being a big girl and being an adolescent, it is rough. Everyone tells me 'Oh, you're the prettiest big girl I've ever seen' and I'm just like no. I'm a beautiful GIRL period. Because of this blog

weirdlook asked: Hey,just out of interest. When I see these body appreciation things, it weirds me out that they're still sort of exclusionary. Be it to body type, skin type etc. Ofcourse I don't expect them to list literally all forms of body but still.. When I see a compilation of skinny, thin nosed, thin lipped people it feels like: here's the bit of blackness we need to appreciate. What do you think?
If you are talking about the recent reblog this week of a photoset, it was about the Black Body as an idea, not about body types. The post was one of many on the Black Body, that particular one was about hair and had women of different hair styles. There’s another from ourblackproject that focuses on body types and includes various body types. I can’t speak on all photosets but those are not exclusionary.
