i love my lgbt body honor my curves


"I struggled with body image issues basically all my life. I was always being told I had to hide my body in large clothing because either my body is shameful and I have to hide it or it’s too promiscuous and I have to hide it. I love food but I also have a love hate relationship with food. Especially with being in a Spanish household, it’s like, eat, eat, eat! But not too much. If you’re looking too skinny, you have to eat more, if you’re too fat, you have to cut back. I just get these passive aggressive comments all the time about my body and I’m constantly being policed for eating something, even if we’re at a family outing eating together. They’ll be like, why did you order that? And I’m like, because I wanted to, that’s really it."
