The realization that we no longer need to be slaves to the dictates of taste force fed upon us by the mass media has been slow in coming. If we are adventurous enough, we are free to explore and discover what is new.
It is interesting to be able to re-consider and possibly re-define the notion of feminine beauty and sexuality outside the narrow parameters set by those who have the power to influence us.
I'm here thinking of the fashion industry, the advertising industry and the movie industry.
Maybe it's time to shake off the notion that skinny is the embodiment of beauty. Not too soon I'd say for all those young girls who decide at a young age, I'm here thinking of pre-puberty, that they are too fat. The epidemic of anorexia and bulimia must be attributed directly to those who want us to believe that skinny is beautiful. In fact, most women would accept that notion and compare their body to the ideal image which has nothing to do with reality.
And so we come to the adipositivity project.
But the discovery doesn't end here. The realization that there are porn sites dedicated to what is known as BBW is mind boggling. Would such an opportunity ever have existed before the net made it possible? I doubt it.
The Adipositivity Project aims to promote size acceptance, not by listing the merits of big people, or detailing examples of excellence (these things are easily seen all around us), but rather, through a visual display of fat physicality. The sort that's normally unseen. The hope is to widen definitions of physical beauty. Literally.
