They’re done! This was just a fun little stress reliever project I started a few weeks ago based on the awesome series RWBY by Roosterteeth. (If you haven’t watched it yet, its definitely worth a look)
If you want a paper cut out of your favorite character from anything, have no fear! Paper character commissions are open now!!
It is NOT okay to be obese.
Before anyone rages at me, let me explain.
I understand that not everyone is going to be ideally thin, it is okay to be a bit above weight, there is nothing wrong with that. But when it comes to the point where it is legitimately obesity, it is not okay. The idea here on tumblr is that all shapes and sizes are beautiful and you’re all perfect. I get why this is said, and I understand and love that a majority of tumblr is supporting strangers around the world and helping them love themselves. That is okay and I agree with that, but what I don’t agree with is telling OBESE people that they are perfect just the way they are. Obesity is a serious problem and it is not okay to sit back and act like everything is okay with being obese because it’s not. I’m not coming from an aesthetic viewpoint on this either, I’m coming from a medical viewpoint. It is not healthy to be obese and it’s not okay to act like everything is fine, because it’s not.
This, exactly. Being obese is unhealthy, but that doesn’t mean you should go around calling obese people landwhales or assume they have poor moral standards due to their weight. People become obese for many reasons, and not all of those are necessarily their fault. Some of them are even mostly outside of their own control, and those people deserve sympathy, not hate.
Someone said it.
Thank you. Obesity contributed to my mother’s death. If she would have taken better care of herself she might be here today. I’m totally about self love, but when it gets to the point that its causing you severe health problems, it’s time to act and fix the problem.
Self-love should be about loving your healthy self. If it’s not healthy, love yourself enough to try to get it there. I know it’s not always in your control. I know society makes it difficult. But please, take care of yourself first.
This is very, very true. My father was well over 400+lbs when he passed away. He suffered from high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and had severe venous ulcers that required me to help him dress and clean them several times a day for almost two years.
He died of an aortic dissection - his aortic valve in his heart split, and his filtered blood was getting mixed in with his unfiltered blood. If he had been even 100lbs lighter, the doctors could have performed an emergency surgery to save his life, but there was too much fat and tissue surround his heart to safely access it in time. He was 50.
I regret not making more of an effort to help him. I saw what his weight was doing to his body, and now it’s too late. Please, please be conscious of obesity. It can literally kill people. Don’t let things get so bad that it becomes impossible to fix. Everyone is beautiful, but being too overweight or too underweight is dangerous.
