"Being fat means your sense of self and self-expression can be stifled. You might not be able to wear the clothing you want to wear, the clothing you feel suits you best because it doesn’t fit or the manufacturer doesn’t make it your size. Being a fat person who is visible, who has a head in photographs, who takes photographs of themselves in their outfits, expressing themselves can be a powerful political act. It’s a refusal to be invisible; it’s a refusal to blend in, to beg people to ignore you. Instead, it shouts, “Look at me! I will not be pushed aside; I will not be dismissed or made fun on. I am here, I exist, I demand acknowledgement.”"
