6 of the 7 color pony commissions I did at Intervention 2012. I sadly forgot to take a picture of the last one, as it was right before the artist alley was about to close and I had to start packing up my table.

“Body acceptance” is the most terrifying two words I think I’ve heard any young person say. It essentially boils down to, “Extremely arrogant”. No, really, it does. To say to yourself, and the world, “My body is just absolutely fine as it is, it needs no work whatever, I am perfect. I am great” is so arrogant, it blows everything else out the water.
I’ve never met an athlete, or someone who does sports, who’s said: “You know what? That’s enough training. My body is great. That’s all the muscles I need.”
How terrifying is it that people out there are so complacent and scared of exercise that they’ll actually come up with a philosophy so they can say: “fuck it, fine as I am.”
I cannot imagine looking at myself and not wanting to keep an edge. I just can’t do it. How could you say, “Well, I did sweat as I walked up those stairs” and then follow up with, “Well I guess that’s fine.”
Body acceptance does not mean ” I give up”. Body acceptance does not mean “I’m never ever ever going to do anything to change my body again”. Body acceptance simply means that you accept your body. It’s right there in the name. Body acceptance means that you will love your body unconditionally, no matter the changes that occur. It’s not vanity, it’s not conceit and it’s not giving up.
Body acceptance has nothing at all to do with exercise. Surprise, I accept my body and I still exercise. I don’t see why what another person chooses to do with their body is any of your concern and why it terrifies you so much. Thinking you can dictate how another person should feel about their body or treat their body is arrogance.
So here’s what I’m thinking you REALLY meant to say ( Ya know, since we’re boiling stuff down) : How dare people be comfortable with themselves? Fat people are disgusting. How could they even try to stop hating themselves over not having a perfect body, even though these ideals are completely unrealistic and unobtainable? I do not realize that another persons body is none of my business. I do not care about your struggle and I think your acceptance of yourself is stupid even though it quite possibly has come out of years of mental abuse and degradation at the hands of a society that photoshops the men and women that are supposed to be “perfect”.
