would you trust this chick in YOUR kitchen??

“People come in and out,” said Jenn Leyva, CC ’12, who spearheaded the Columbia chapter of Challah for Hunger along with Loebl. “It doesn’t take too many people to make challah, but the more the merrier,” she said, adding, “There’s no such thing as too many bakers in the kitchen … Not here, at least.”

looks like Jenn Leyva (CC '12) LOVES poasting FAT PORN

http://fatandtheivy.tumblr.com/post/6609954827/what-do-you-think-about-posts-like-this-nsfw-nudity

Anonymous: what do you think about posts like this? nsfw (nudity)

http://shorturl.tumblr.com/post/6598145386/obesity-is-b00tiful-because-she-is-ok-with-her

The spelling / grammar commenting on the picture is ridiculous. Not everyone in the FA community is working on a PhD (cough Margitte cough), but prose is, by and large, articulate and polished. Also, most FA people find the term “obesity” problematic. (The use of the term “obesity” is in and of itself medicalization of fat. I, along with many fat activists, want to challenge that.)

Curious about the genesis of such a picture, I found the source. This was originally published here, and it’s been reblogged from there. Based on the About Me section of the original tumblr, it’s not her original photo or her body. Looking at the commentary attached to the picture from the original post, it’s decidedly not FA. Jeffchord had the chutzpah to stand up for this girl (“NEWS FLASH: IT’S STILL NOT YOUR BODY THEREFORE NONE OF YOUR FUCKING CONCERN!”), but only after a long string of fat-is-gross comments.

Like most things, this is complicated. The person who took this picture probably didn’t want it so publicly available on the internet. Someone found it and shared it, and it got out of hand. If that was malicious, the vindictive side of me wishes for retribution when looking for a job, dating someone new, or in public office. With respect to the rest of the nasty commentary, I know people are going to be vile on the internet when we can hide behind anonymity and physical distance. Just think of all of the terrible things we say to other drivers in our cars that we wouldn’t say if we were walking. I want people to be nicer, but I know that we will only act nice after we have learned to accept fat people and fat bodies. That’s hard, and it’s going to take some time.

As for naked pictures of fat people, fat people need more visibility. The Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University has a catalog of photos of fat people doing normal and healthy things (picking out produce, exercising, being at work etc.). Leonard Nimoy published a book of fat women looking hot and naked-ish (The Full Body Project). Adipositivy publishes nude photos of fat people not looking “ugly.” All of these projects visibilize a fat body as a worthy and beautiful body and are important. The typical image of a fat person is either filled with shame— like the montages on the news where fat people waddle without faces— or full of mockery— like the images found at “People of Walmart.” Fat people deserve more than disgust and mockery, so we should have a media presence that reflects a whole and complete human experience.

I hope that the woman who took this picture took it because she felt fierce. All people— regardless of size, ability, appearance— deserve to feel awesome and take sexy pictures of themselves. However, the picture is out there and receiving ridicule (not “I’m a married congressman and should exercise more judgement before putting pictures out there” ridicule, but “I’m fat and thus I am not a sexual or worthy human being” ridicule), and that’s fucked up.

If, however, she took the picture as a way to impress a man (and not because of reciprocal pleasure), knock it the fuck off. I know it’s all “post-feminist” to take naked pictures, sleep around, and be slutty because you can. But knock it the fuck off. If you’re sleeping around because you want to, it makes you happy, and you enjoy it— I’ll buy you a box of condoms to celebrate your decisions. If you’re doing this because you want the attention of men, you’re part of the patriarchy (and thus worthy of Feminist Hulk’s SMASH!!). Your worth doesn’t come from the number of men who find you fuckable, so spend your time and energy doing something better and meaningful.

It's very striverish to say student at "Columbia College". What, to point out that you're not in the slightly less prestigious engineering undergrad school? Also Columbia College is the name of many TTT institutions.

In front of me for a few blocks is a woman, who, on her slender, sweaty back, has painted the words, “Liberation Not Assimilation.” We march past a Michael Kors store. In the window are two white wedding cakes with two brides and two grooms on top of each. This is very likely the definition of irony.

I’ve been doing a thousand and one things to get ready for Thailand, so I haven’t been blogging much. But, I did start a flickr to be a part of the fatshionista community. I’ve only posted 2 pictures, but I’m hoping to post more as I have some really cute outfits to wear in Thailand.

I’ve been in Thailand for about a week studying bioethics and meeting some really passionate and exciting people. In the past week, I applied for and received a visa, flew across the globe, took a vacation from my vacation (beach weekend!), saw Harry Potter a day before my friends in ‘Murriak, and through all of this I’ve grown to further appreciate fat activism.

I’m happier because of fat activism. I’ve prioritized what’s important in my life, and I’ve decided that worrying about being fat and taking up space is destructive and not worth my time. On the first flight from LAX to Hong Kong, my seatbelt was as big as it could get. I didn’t need an extender, but it was the first time in my life that I’ve been at the “maximum” body size while traveling. It was a bit shocking to me, but I didn’t feel bad about myself. I didn’t feel the need to apologize for taking up space. I noted that I probably shouldn’t get any bigger, but I didn’t make any promises to myself about starting that diet and exercise regime or being smaller the next time I traveled. I noticed that my seatbelt was a bit snug, and I also noticed that the seats reclined more than most seats in domestic flights. I felt so powerful and content knowing that I wasn’t letting this bother me. Once I arrived at my final destination, I’ve met new people, and I haven’t felt the need to make sure that I’m doing everything “right” as a fat person. I’ve been ugly— not wearing makeup or high-femme clothes. I’ve even make it clear that I eat without dieting. I still worry about what I eat and how I eat in front of other people. (Do I get diet coke or regular coke? Diet has fewer calories, but phenylalanine is probably going to give me cancer. What is the “better” or “healthier” choice? What will they think about me based on this decision? Do I tell then that I gave up phenylalanine for a few months this year, but then decided that I didn’t care because I’m probably going to get cancer anyway? Do I talk about disordered eating? Intuitive eating? Can I just eat food?) But even with all of this mental energy spent thinking through all of my issues with food, I am able to remind myself that it doesn’t fucking matter. The only rule about eating is eat or die. I’m allowed to eat what I want when I want. I don’t have to justify it. I’m allowed to take up space with my body, my actions, and my voice.

I’ve also found that being out of my usual element has made FA and eating easier. It’s easier to be honest about who I am and what I think with new people. The people here don’t know me. They don’t anything about my politics, so it’s easier to just be honest. I don’t have to worry about how to explain to them that even though I have a complicated relationship with my body; I just get to explain where I am right now. (Short answer: riots not diets.) And half of the time I don’t know what I’m eating. There aren’t calorie counts on restaurant menus (let alone street food), and even when there are nutrition facts on prepackaged foods and snacks, it’s in Thai. I have no idea if I’m eating or drinking something that is 100 or 1000 calories. Nutrition labels are good and important, but it’s easier for me to eat what I want without having to weigh what I really want with nutrition info and calorie counts.

And the icing on the cake is that I’m surrounded by people who think critically about health, medicine, illness, disease, and the human condition (if you’ll allow me to be that grandiose). Not everyone agrees with my opinions and ideas, but there’s a lively discourse, and I feel like I am respected even when we disagree. Talking about fat issues with people in real life (as compared to just on the internet) is an act of activism that allows me to question the preconceived notions of others and further develop my understanding and commitment to fat activism.

Author: AZNgirl delighted by \'smudge\' meme

In the Old Testament which I believe, there is no prohibition to perform even Polygamy Prophet Sulaiman (Solomon) said to have more than one wife (wife of many); And that’s why I (the author) often do not have a lot of argument, if a friendfriends ask “why many wives (polygamy) was banned.

Therefore I asked my father (the father) in the Village, then He said “that the ban was not because of poligamai haram, or sinful, but determined by the Christian preacher as one of the ban (new) whose value is equated with the Word of God”. At first I was surprised with the word “ban on polygamy is equated with the Word of God, because in my opinion is not likely the human mind can be likened to the word of God.

Then “My father” adds the story Polygamy is very simple: He says so, if we remember the lecture method of research that says “search for truth” it is easily understood that the “truth” is absolute and there is no other answer. For example, if the palm of our hands are on skewers with a sharpened metal blade, there is no other word apart from the palms of our hands it will be translucent and bleed a lot. And if our hands were not pierced through, then the incident was not the truth but the magic or mystical.

Likewise with the rules of the Church of “one and the wife must not divorce” is the result of the conclusion of the study The pastor, who said the wife of one and should not be cereai is “the best rules and no other regulations that can rival it.” Is a barren, or whether one of the husband – wife became disabled also may not polygamy or divorce? The answer, for whatever reason “it should not be polygamy and should not be divorced” And because of the truth contained in “rules and should not be a wife for a divorce” that the Church then aligns with the Word of God.

My father added that if the Church erred in setting the “rules and ban divorce one’s wife”, the stakes are the church. For the ancient rule of the Church is faced with the old rules of Polygamy. That is an easy rule discussed in the hearts and minds and in earlier times of polygamy and marry divorced families were still quite numerous.

Indeed, the pastor’s study is quite accurate, because day after day, and then changed the time of year, it has been proven that the people who managed to follow the rule “one wife, as well as the prohibition of divorce” then there will create a happy family in the sense that they can raise andeducate their children into healthy humans and have a passion to develop a modern life that is supported by the Science and Technology Development.

As for the problem of “gay” seems to be just like other people such as diseases such as thieves, drunkards, murderers, gamblers, idlers, and others, the problem is simply solved by the rule of law or customary law posip.

Finally, although polygamy and divorce are not included in the positive law or customary law, and whatever the reason we should not resort to the field. Because the roads are narrow or sacrifice our whole life turns leads to a generational change that is more in line with the demands of the future is the future of the more advanced and better.

Dalam Kitab Perjanjian Lama yang saya yakini, memang tidak ada larangan untuk melakukan Poligami bahkan Nabi Sulaiman (Raja Salomo) dikatakan memiliki istri lebih dari satu (Istri banyak); Dan karena itulah Saya (penulis) sering tidak memiliki argumentasi yang cukup banyak, apabila teman-teman bertanya “ kenapa isteri banyak (poligami ) itu di larang.

Karena itu saya bertanya kepada Ayah (Bapak) di Kampung , maka Dia mengatakan “ bahwa larangan poligamai itu bukan karena haram, atau dosa, akan tetapi ditetapkan oleh Para Pendeta Kristen sebagai salah satu larangan (baru) yang nilainya disamakan dengan Firman Tuhan “. Pada awalnya saya terperanjat dengan kata “ larangan poligami disamakan dengan dengan Firman Tuhan, sebab menurut saya adalah tidak mungkin pikiran manusia dapat disamakan dengan firman Tuhan.

Kemudian “Ayah saya” menambahkan cerita Poligami itu dengan sangat sederhana ; Dia mengatakan demikian, kalau kita mengingat Kuliah Metode Penelitian yang mengatakan “ mencari kebenaran” maka dengan mudah dipahami bahwa “ kebenaran “ itu adalah mutlak dan tidak ada lagi jawaban yang lain. Misalnya, kalau telapak tangan kita ini di tusuk dengan Pisau besi yang runcing maka tidak ada kata lain selain dari telapak tangan kita itu akan tembus lalu mengeluarkan darah yang banyak. Dan seandainya telapak tangan kita yang ditusuk itu tidak tembus, maka kejadian itu bukan kebenaran melainkan keajaiban atau mistik.

Demikian halnya dengan peraturan Gereja tentang “ Istri satu dan tidak boleh cerai “ adalah hasil kesimpulan dari penelitian Para Pendeta, yang mengatakan Istri satu serta tidak boleh cereai adalah “ peraturan yang paling baik serta tidak ada peraturan yang lain yang dapat menyainginya “. Apakah seorang yang mandul, atau apakah salah seorang pasangan suami – istri menjadi cacat juga tidak boleh poligami atau cerai ? Jawabnya, apapun alasannya “ tetap tidak boleh poligami serta tidak boleh cerai “ Dan karena kebenaran yang terkandung dalam “peraturan istri satu serta tidak boleh cerai “ itulah maka Gereja kemudian mensejajarkannya dengan firman Tuhan.

Ayah saya menambahkan, bahwa seandainya Gereja keliru dalam menetapkan “peraturan Istri satu serta larangan cerai “ itu, maka taruhannya adalah Gereja. Sebab pada zaman dahulu peraturan Gereja ini berhadapan dengan peraturan lama yaitu Poligami. Yaitu peraturan yang mudah dibahas dalam hati serta pikiran dan pada jaman dulu keluarga poligami dan kawin cerai itu masih cukup banyak jumlahnya.

Memang penelitian para Pendeta itu cukup akurat, sebab hari demi hari, dan kemudian tahun berganti jaman, telah terbukti bahwa pada masyarakat yang berhasil mengikuti peraturan “Istri satu, serta larangan cerai “ maka disana akan tercipta keluarga yang bahagia dalam arti bahwa mereka dapat membesarkan dan mendidik anak-anak mereka menjadi manusia yang sehat dan memiliki semangat untuk mengembangkan kehidupan modern yang didukung oleh Pengembangan Ilmu Pengetahuan dan Teknologi.

Sedang untuk masalah “ Gay “ kelihatannya hanya seperti penyakit masyarakat lainnya misalnya seperti; pencuri, pemabuk, pembunuh, penjudi, pemalas, dan lain-lain, yang permasalahannya cukup diselesaikan oleh peraturan berdasarkan hukum posip atau hukum adat.

Akhirnya, walaupun Poligami dan perceraian tidak masuk dalam hukum positip ataupun dalam hukum adat, dan apapun alasannya kita seharusnya tidak menempuh jalan yang lapang. Sebab melalui jalan yang sempit atau pengorbanan seluruh hidup kita ternyata akan mendorong terjadinya perubahan generasi yang lebih sejalan dengan tuntutan masa depan yaitu masa depan yang lebih maju serta lebih baik.

reblogged this. surprised?

http://fattydiary.tumblr.com/post/8973976168/300-for-being-300-pounds

(via http://akatheinbetweenie.tumblr.com)

$300 for being 300 pounds?

The other week, I started work like any normal day. I actually was having a cheerful morning. Woke up on time and got there early so I headed to the kitchen to get coffee, like I do every single morning. Unfortunately, I was about to see something that would ruin my day and week. I noticed a sign on the break room table asking for everybody to read it. “This will affect you!”, it says. I begin to read the 2 page explanation next to a petition with a handful of signatures. A few lines in and I am ready to fucking kill someone. To my horror, a decision had already been made by our union and government employer to start charging an extra $360-$540 a year to anybody that would be at risk for any future health problems.

“People who choose not to participate will have to pay a monthly surcharge. Staff has recommended a surcharge of $30 for single members and $45 for members with a spouse on their health plan.”

This of course included employees that were considered overweight. And you can get out of having to pay by participating in a weight loss and exercise program. Which of course, will be Weight Watchers.

“In the first year, the screening will involve a simple self-reported waist measurement. For example, waist circumference could be used to determine whether a person needs to participate in a weight control or exercise program. Women with waists of more than 35 inches and men with waists of more than 40 inches could be required to participate in such a program.”

I am livid. What right do they have to force us to make personal decisions? None! It is completely invasive and ridiculous. They are saying that it is not possible for you to be fat and healthy, or even curvy and healthy. It is so likely that you will be sick that you will one-handedly shut down the whole entire fucking state budget with your fat ass. They will also be screening for tobacco, alcohol and stress, with an online survey. Because we know how accurate the information is provided on the internet.

“The health assessment and the screening information will be used to determine steps to be taken to prevent chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease.”

This whole things is laced with issues. Like the fact like men get 5 more inches in their waist before they are considered “unhealthy.” That everybody is shaped differently, tall and short and how can this number tell you someone’s health status?

You are probably thinking that this fatty should just sign up for the Weight Watchers and stop complaining. She probably needs to lose weight anyways. Well, fuck you. I don’t want to sign up for Weight Watchers. I am anti-diet and especially anti-corporate diet program. The company has already been making loads of money from working with my employer. I get email after email, in my work email, about joining the Weight Watchers office program. They even have an ad right on the front page of our benefits website. It is against every grain and fiber of my being and principal I stand for to join that point counting bullshit.

So my other choice, pay the fee. Pay the fee that I can’t afford to pay. We have already made sacrifices for the budget. I will already be taking home less when things cost more. I have already missed out on a handful of raises that I worked hard to earn. When my partner is unemployed and we are already deciding each month which bill to pay. After I read the information and signed the petition, I went back to my desk and cried. I cried because I felt like I was being singled out and punished. Just another person telling me that I was not human and that there was something horribly wrong with me. That each pound I carried on my body would cost me $1. Because of a number and the space I occupied, I would have to pay a fee. My body is beautiful and mine. It is not for anybody, especially my employer, to decide if it is healthy and what I should do with it. That decision is mine.

This online assessment is going to take my measurements and use poor statistics and diet program funded statistics and I guarantee, the result will be that I am at risk and unhealthy. That I am morbidly obese and death fat. Yes, I am 300 lbs and 5’9”. I am vegetarian, make healthy choices as well as some unhealthy ones. Which again, are my fucking decisions. I do not have issues with food or overeating that I cannot control. I am not diabetic and do not have high blood pressure. I do not pound back donuts and hamburgers from morning to night. Even if I was, what I do on my own time, outside of work is not for my employer to control.

And how far are going to take this shit? A woman will have to pay extra because she could get pregnant and cost health insurance more money. Your race and sexual orientation is potentially vulnerable to certain diseases- pay more! But they couldn’t do that because those are protected classes from discrimination, while weight is not. Even though it is equally hurtful and I feel just as violated. So people that say that the fatties aren’t allowed to compare themselves, this is why. Because I have to walk into work knowing that I am going to be treated differently because of who I am. Because every time I go shopping or into public, people look at me like I should be embarrassed of myself.

“Workers enrolling for health care will have to electronically “sign” an agreement committing themselves and their spouses or domestic partners to participation.”

Soon, I will have to make a decision. Pay the money that I can’t afford to pay or agree to try and lose weight, not because I want to but because someone else does. I can barely bring myself to go to work. I am completely stressed out about this. I am bitter and feel an unmeasurable amount of hate towards the union and employer that is supposed to support me and provide me security. This will be what cost them money. I will more likely have to go to the doctor for a stress-related symptom or will have to look for another job - because I am forced to take part in a initiative that is supposed to make me healthier.

If you see a similar idea proposed in your state or by your employer, please vote against it. Even if it isn’t going to affect you. Please consider the burden and humiliation that your coworkers or neighbors will be subjected to. Reconsider what you think you know about people that are fat.

If you are a fatty reading this, I hope you reblog this and stand up for our right to be treated fairly and with respect.

LOL, moar fatass denial from Jenn Leyva

http://fatandtheivy.tumblr.com/post/9359154362/privileged-science

As part of my summer in Thailand studying bioethics, I�m spending the week with sex workers at a non-profit community organization in the main red light district in Bangkok. These women (not all sex workers are women, but this non-profit works only with women) have been very generous with their time and trust. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from them and develop my own thoughts on sex work, feminism, disease, health, stigma, government, and everything else.

On the first day one woman was asking about me. We�re going to be spending a lot of time together talking about sensitive issues, so it�s only fair that I share some of my life. Why am I in Thailand? What does my family think about me living in Thailand for 2 months? What do I want to do with my life? Do I have a boyfriend? Why not? How much do you weigh? Are you hungry? And how about you food? Are your parents fat? You know you�d be prettier if you weren�t fat. And you�d have a good boyfriend.

I know that they mean well; they want to understand me. But, for the love of God, please stop asking about my fat. For the most part, I think I�m handling it well. I smile, answer the questions that I want to, and laugh the other ones off. Though I wish I had a better plan to tackle these questions. I remembered Margitte�s post about her experiences being fat and living abroad, so I gchatted her and asked for advice. She told her Italian host family that she had a thyroid condition, and that shut everyone up. She also suggested that I could smile and say �I like it! It [being fat] makes me happy!� Making up a thyroid problem would be the easiest way to cease the fat questions. I don�t have a thyroid disease, but there�s probably something regulating my weight differently than thin people� why not just label it a thyroid condition?

Why not? Because I can�t. I can�t use my knowledge of science and health to stop a natural curiosity and avoid a complicated topic. I can�t use science and health to create a distance between us. I can�t use science and health to create a divide. I don�t think I�m going to be able to explain my complicated body politics, but that�s not an excuse to throw science around as a way to assert my superiority. Too often science is used to make the powerful more powerful. Even the way science is taught in school perpetuates the myth that science is only for the elite. There�s a sense that science is hard, and only a few are capable. And what do these capable people look like? Rich white men who are slightly social awkward. Yes, there is always the token woman in the lab� Marie Curie, Florence Sabin, and Rosalind Franklin. But science is about pure reason and logic, things that white men are naturally good at. So more rich white men go into the field of science, and they create a community that continues to distance itself from the lived experiences of so many people. As science and technology radically change the world and the ways in which we interact and understand one another, science and technology continue to be controlled by an elite few. Criticism about science are summarily dismissed, as science is in search of empirical Truth. But to me, science is a really cool way in which we can learn more about the natural world! Everyone should be able to find power in helping contribute to our understanding of the world that gives us space and life. I won�t use science to silence people whose voices are already drowned out.

I�ll go back tomorrow and continue to awkwardly laugh off questions about my fat. I�ll answer questions as simply and honestly as I can. I�ll probably do a rather poor job explaining my body politics, but I�d rather fail after a valiant effort than perpetuate systemic dismissal of people through the flippant use of science as a way to cover up something complicated and difficult.

Jenn Leyva still needs to explain how "genes" force her to shovel pints of Ben&Jerry's down her gobbling maw...

http://fatandtheivy.tumblr.com/post/9444880947/science

As a biochemist, I feel the need to point out that, though genes are inherited, gene expression is a complicated topic that we don’t know much about. Many of these epigenetic factors, the factors controlling gene expression, are environmental and rely on complex mechanisms to explain how two cells with the same genes— eg two cells in your body— differentiate into different cell types— eg a liver cell and a skin cell. Applying this to the organism level, it becomes clear that simple Mendelian genetics— eg blue eyes crossed with blue eyes makes offspring with blue eyes— do not fully explain our phenotypes—ie blue eyes. Even if the rest of your entire family is thin and there isn’t a “fat gene” to be found, a more holistic and sophisticated view of genetics may still be contributing to your size.

TL;DR: Genes are complicated. We’re still trying to figure out how they work. In the meantime, it’s okay to be fat.

I spent New Years dressed up like Adele (with Lady Gaga feather eyelashes). I’m normally one to make sure I drop my shoulders and stick out my chin to avoid a double chin, but I love this picture because it’s not artificial. And because I look femme and fabulous.

EWWWWWWW

Subject: sounds awful

I generally avoid telling people where I go to school (Columbia) and what I’m studying (biochemistry). Whenever the big reveal comes around, I get the most stunned looks and platitudes about how I must be a genius because that’s such a rigorous school and program. That moment of disclosure creates a divide that can take a long time to dissolve. Yes, I’m smart. But I’m also funny, annoying, mean to my mom (isn’t that my job?), and awesome (this is quantifiably verifiable). At the same time, I love that I have this power that I can chose to use. In many ways, I’m happy to be the smart, well educated, academic person. I enjoy a complicated, intellectual conversation and problem sets that reveal and new understanding and appreciation for the material. I like that I’m a tangible example of a fat person who’s breaking stereotypes. Putting myself forward (both on the internet and in real life) as a strong student has been great. I’ve done well academically (this is Fat and the Ivy after all), and I know that the effort I’ve put into school has been rewarding personally, and should continue to be when I go out into the real world.
