I want to do a project that will result in either a website or a printed zine that includes women of size with short interviews regarding your relationship with your body. If you wouldn’t like to be interviewed and instead want to write a short story or essay about the subject that’s completely fine as well.
I’m looking for women who are around my area and who are chubby/plus size/fat/thick/curvy who would be willing to model for me nude or scantily clad in their own bedroom, or a room within their own home. The photos while they may be nude are not meant to be overtly sexual and or pornographic.
This is not a paid shoot. If you’re interested please email me here - I’ll be shooting for this project in the new year.
Nope they weren’t rude. I wasn’t trying to be either that’s just how I speak and thus, how I type.
I do dislike though how because I’m a bigger girl people think that my weight is a constant issue in my life. People assume that I’m mistreated because of it. They think people make fun of me or make underhanded comments. Even that I get rude anon messages here. For the most part this doesn’t happen to me and I think it has everything to do with how I carry myself.
My size doesn’t dictate anything in my life other than the fact that I shop at plus size stores. I work out multiple times a week - I run, jump, dance and practice yoga. I’m intelligent and I have a good career and no matter what people think of me when I walk into a board room I have the power to change their minds completely and gain their respect by the time I leave. Men think that I’m sexy and desirable. I have never had a problem getting dates or attention from men (finding a good one who’s on the same page of myself is a different story but has to do with me being picky). I have sex - regular sex that is currently FUCKING AMAZING.
"No one really gives a shit about my size."
The people in my life don’t see me as a size 18 - they see me as ME. They speak to me the same way they would speak to me if I was a size 6.
Anyone who does see me as a size doesn’t need to be part of my life in my opinion. Why would I listen to anyone who had a negative opinion of me for something as silly as my weight? In my mind if you’re going to think negatively about me I would hope that it was because we have a harsh difference of opinion on a subject that is dear to your heart. Or because you dislike the way I deal with certain situations or people - thinking my actions were unjust. Maybe it’s because you believe some silly rumor that I do something evil like kill kittens for fun. Something that would actually make me a bad human being.
And if anyone did ever say anything to me about my weight - I’d want to talk it out because I know that I could likely diffuse most situations where the person is logical. If they’re not logical and just throwing comments around then I know that it and them both probably aren’t worth my time and I leave it at that.
**None of the above is directly related to the person who sent me the previous comment/question. I know that they weren’t being mean. My response wasn’t meant in a rude way - I apologize if it came off that way.**
