these are getting a ton of attention on twitter so here for tumblr too, really cute fat girls from an advertisement for anti chafe cream
holy shit can we talk about these for a hot second here, they are so pure
these are cute (!!!), realistically proportioned, non-sexualized depictions of fat women’s bodies, in a recognizably standard anime style
these characters have big arms, round faces with double chins, wide frames (that don’t conform to the hourglass huge-hip/tiny-waist/enormous-boobs “acceptable fat” model), and are presented in poses that read as happy, excited, fun-loving, and even flirty (but again, not overtly sexual – these are obviously characters, not simply bodies for consumption)
and they still look like they could be right at home on the pages of a shoujo manga
so i don’t ever wanna hear anybody say again that they can’t draw fat people because they don’t fit your “style” or you think they can’t be cute or pretty or non-fetishized. that’s a load of fatphobic crap and you need to do better. learn from this.
