This is a subject that I haven’t come across
myself, personally, aimed towards me. Ever. I’ve been through this second hand with friends who have lost weight, for whatever reasons, and it’s something I have spoken to them about; especially those within the BoPo community.
The mass consensus is that it leaves us feeling any/all of the following..
- At a loss
- Generally confused

This is a topic I don’t talk about lightly; especially when it involves a band that I have held in high esteem, up on a pedestal above everyone else and have defended to the hilt every single time needed.
I’ll still defend them against the b.s. I’ll still buy the music. But this will possibly be the last time I see them live unless many things change…. The main one being monetary.

I’ve done a similar blog about this earlier this year however it keeps coming around so I feel I need to make this point…. Again.
Note: I’m not censoring names. Fuck y’all.
I’ve also had a large section of this saved in my drafts for a good two weeks.

I want to preface this blog post with some notes.
- I won’t be naming names. If you read this and know exactly who I’m referencing, I politely ask you don’t comment/tweet with their name.
- I had receipts on my browser and now I have to re-find them because everything crashed and I had to restore the factory settings – as I find them again, I will add them.
- When I refer to this person’s fandom; I mean it as a generalisation and not a “everyone in the fandom is like this!” I have friends in the fandom and they’ve been great with explaining certain things and even greater and understanding the POV from others.
- This YT-er’s fan base is quite young; MOSTLY early to mid teens. This is important to remember.
- I DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, believe that this YT-er is a paedophile. I AM NOT accusing them of that offence.

I will preface this with a CW.
There’s a lot of pent-up anger directed at two family members in this post.
Like… A lot; bordering on rage.
So the entire thing will go behind a cut.

I have considered myself a firm member of the body positive community for a rather long time. I underatand where it came from, how it started and why it was needed.
The rest of this post is going to talk about and weight loss so there’s your content warning and here is the jump…

I want to preface this with a content warning and place it all under a cut as it does deal with weight loss and as someone who still fights an eating disorder – I understand. So PLEASE, if you feel this post will trigger you in ANY way, don’t read on. I totally get it and understand.
Recovery is always possible and attainable.

I haven’t actually written about my disabilities and how they impact my day to day life for a while. This isn’t because they haven’t been affecting me, but simply because when I’ve passed comments I’ve found that certain areas of the disabled community (and society…. I’ll get there) seem to think it’s a competition of some sort and that some people just aren’t “disabled enough”; for what exactly I’m not 100% sure.
What I am sure about is that just because I don’t “look disabled” doesn’t mean my disability can be written off or ignored & invalidated and when I say the words “I am disabled”, I shouldn’t have to prove it to anyone.

Quite a harsh title, I’ll give you that… However it should be true.
This blog started as one thing and turned into a battle cry of sorts…. But I am legitimately not upset about that… Keep reading…

Up until an hour or so ago I was stuck with what the hell to write about… I knew I wanted to write…. but what?
Then it hit me… sort of.
