This is a life-size pre-cast clay sculpture of a naked fat woman. The model is Julie Srika. The sculptor is Ramon Sierra. I think it’s beautiful and important. Breathtaking, even. Two days ago I shared it on Facebook, with the permission of both the model and the artist. Many people responded to it as I did. Facebook then deleted the thread and removed the photo from the model’s account, citing it as being in violation of their “community standards.” Appeals to Facebook have yet to be answered.
I think this is a disturbing anti-art stance, particularly vexing, considering Facebook allows far more sexually suggestive photos and sanctions pages designed to promote bigotry and bullying. Yet an amazing piece of art depicting a fat woman in proud non-sexual repose must go.
So while this is not the traditional fare for Uppity Fatty, I’m posting it here so more people can see it without the small-minded interference of Facebook’s double-standards.

I love seeing art of my body type. I love seeing thick, hanging bellies and curves and folds and rolls on my dash. Representation is so important.

Me in my Halloween costume… I am a Disney princess… Belle to be exact (if you couldn’t tell)… I wasn’t sure people were going to accept a plus size Belle, but after all was said and done everyone responded amazingly! (U.S.A. size 22 and loving every inch of it)
post-show photo from this week’s Debauchery. costume and choreo miraculously came together at 5am day of the show. kicked ass. broke hearts. it was an intensely emotional performance for me but in the best way.

the thing i have about typical “plus sized whatevers” in mainstream is they usually look like big bootied big tittied round faced versions of smaller girls, no rolls or cellulite nothin.
like dont nobody look like that neither
Agreed with the above.
