Fat acceptance is not enough anymore. I’m no longer satisfied with mere acceptance as a BBW.
- You accept flowers when a family member passes.
- You accept a pay raise — something only men enjoy
- You accept an invitation to a birthday party.
- You don’t accept a beautiful woman. You lust after a beautiful woman, you need a beautiful woman, you f*ck a beautiful woman.
First, we were shunned and told to lose weight. Second, we gained acceptance. The next step is in this journey of aesthetic egalitarianism is to draw no distinction between the skinny and the obese.
Look, I hate the capitalistic corporate world and their marketing campaigns as much as the next feminist. But we can’t ignore the power of catchy slogans to promote new ideas.
This is why I propose a new awareness campaign #FupaFabulous. For those unaware, a FUPA is an acronym for “Fat Upper Pubic Area”. To this point, it has been used to belittle those with a healthy dose of body fat. It’s time for a rebranding campaign. If successful, a day may come when young girls the world over, no longer starve themselves to meet unrealistic expectations set by the patriarchy. Instead, we could usher in a time when it’s not only acceptable to eat a gallon of ice cream after chasing down a non-diet 2 liter, but beneficial to do so. After all, how else are you going to get #FupaFabulous?
Skinny privilege has been a thing for long enough, and I’m sick of them grabbing the lion share of the most attractive men.
Let’s redefine what it means to be sexy. Let’s smash through acceptance. Let’s make FILF a thing (Fupa I’d Like To F*ck).
Let’s make FUPA’s Sexy.
