Fat Queer Tells All: On Fatness and Gender Flatness - By Allie Shyer (via cassket)
Yup, if you ain’t a super skinny prepubescent looking person in historically male clothing you’re not considered androgynous to mainstream society
Oh my god
I can’t even
I wanted to draw is a woman who, after climbing the wall of a skyscraper, crawls on the roof. She finds herself at the edge, her right leg still not on the roof. So regarding the anatomical criticism, I think they are wrong, she is not meant to have both knees on the roof. One leg is still down, and the other is pulling up. And that’s why her back is arched.
It’s not my fault if women are like that. I only draw them. It’s not my design, it’s one from a far more “important” author, for those who believe. On the other hand, for evolutionists, like me, women’s bodies have taken this form over millennia to avoid the ‘extinction of the species’. If women were made exactly as men, with the same shape, I think we would have been extinct for a long time already.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
