Zine containing personal stories of fatphobia - sort of journal styled, half-hazardly describing some triggering experiences I've had with relatives so fair warning given. Zine contains content such as abuse and trauma, please take care of yourself first as this is not a super light read. Also a nudity and bdsm warning as the illustrations I have included in the zine contains those things.
The goal of this zine was mainly to get some of my experiences off my chest and to share it with some folks and that maybe this is something they can relate to, maybe this is something other people who don't face fatphobia can learn from. I just wanted to do this activity as a means of self care and figures I'd have up on my etsy in case other folks feel like reading it.
Each story explains some sort of fatphobic discrimination my family members have posed on me such as commenting on my weight and what effect that has had on my self esteem. I have also included some empowering nude drawings of myself juxtaposed with these hurtful stories as a way to show how despite their actions, I am still able to accept my body.
Zine is 5x4inches, printed on scrapbook paper, comes beautifully wrapped in a white ribbon and a cute bell, includes personalized note from the artist and a surprise little freebie item.
