Normalize fat women’s bodies. Normalize public breastfeeding. Normalize home births and midwives and reproductive autonomy. Normalize body hair on women.
Reject the notion that women are to be regulated and controlled and pressured to conform to societal standards.

You are so important just by being yourself! Every person that strives to be better, strives to love more, strives to love their body as it is and not as society tells them it should be, makes the world more beautiful and more liveable!! Every person that cares and tries is essential to humanity, and helps heal the hearts of all the other people that are trying! Without you, the world would be a sad, dim place. You are essential!.
(I really really hope you don’t mind that I responded to this publically. I thought I should because it applies to each and every person that reads this!!)

Thank you! I’m just doing my best to be the type of person that my 5 year old self wanted me to grow up to be. <3

Thank you!! I honestly believe that no one gets that angry and bitter without having been dealt a few bad hands in life. As a person that’s had my share of heartache and bullshit, I try not to be the cause of that for anyone, even people that are jerks. In order for an insult to hurt you have to believe that it has merit and since I believe that both I and my body are beautiful, there’s really nothing anyone can say that’s ever going to change my mind.
Thank you for all of the help, beautiful people!! After mulling over it quite a bit, I decided to go with the first photo. I really love them both, and the standing picture is pretty golden, but I think the picture in the tree best captures my personality.
