New to the platform because @femmmeow is very convincing and was fed up with the algorithm/BS on ig.
I'm a white, able bodied, fat, queer woman, and a nurse in the Canadian prairies.
I'm interested in leftism - anti racism, anti capitalism, fat liberation, queerness, inclusive health care, and pro sex work.
My spare time consists of consuming memes, endlessly binging tv shows, trying to be a beginner knitter, worrying about the end of the world, and adoring my cat.
Originally going to be elastic waistband in the back with pleats in the front, but when we tightened the elastic to the correct position, my side seams were in the back! So it's a full elastic waistband with extra pleats.
Also, I did a lot more sewing myself on this pair and I think my mom was happy for that!
Midweight Ponte de Roma fabric from blackbirdfabrics in colour pecan
My first Muna and Broad pants! (worn all day, so pardon the wrinkles)
Spruce green corduroy from blackbirdfabrics, great on polar vortex days like today ❄️
When we were putting these pants together, the Bee Gees were playing in the background and my dad was very confused about what decade it was 😂
I think I would try to grade the legs a little more narrow and add a few inches in length for my next make.
Thank you to my mom for all of your help sewing these! #sewing #memade #fatsewist

I don't think people realize why its important to remove white supremacists from your board/forum/web community.
- They are extremely motivated.
- They have a tradition of recruiting via meme(in the classic sense).
- They have centuries of effective propaganda.
- They will take over. Slowly at first then suddenly.
- They will always create more moderation work for you. They will never stop pushing.
Every society struggles with this. And it's not some conspiracy.
fucked up that feminism became the whitest, straightest "radical" movement that has ever existed

A curious young lioness accidentally took pictures of herself toying with a wildlife photographer's camera attached to a remote-controlled vehicle.
The photos were taken from Masai Mara National Reserve in #Kenya.
"Why are nearly ALL the popular travel bloggers also MODELS? Seriously, since when is being thin and able bodied and conventionally beautiful a prerequisite for being a badass traveler? Where are all the fat travel bloggers? Where are the travelers with disabilities? INTERSECTIONALITY…travel blogging is so pathetically behind on this one."
