The picture above is from a Japanese dating sim called Hachi Koi. This is one of (if not) THE first depiction(s) of a canon fat anime character. She is fat in the more socially unacceptable sense as opposed to the typical “curvy” anime character who has large breasts, a tiny waist and large hips.
Her name is Kasugaoka Kurumi. She is depicted realistically as a chubby girl. It is relevant in her face, in her waist and in her legs rather than just emphasizing the more social (and sexually) acceptable figure mentioned above.
In the picture above, notice the cookies and milk beside her. The game unapologetically associates this character with a love of food, rather than shaming her for it. The game even associates her with chocolate squares.
There is even a traditional hot springs scene and Kurumi is shown with a tea tray happily eating tea biscuits. It’s important to note that food, to this character, is not a source of shame or self-loathing.
Aside from it being just fucking awesome that Japanese media is -finally- recognizing this body type in their art, it’s important to note that this is a dating game, and this character is a choice of one of the possible love interests for the main character. Although I’m not going to get into the perhaps sexist idea behind these kinds of dating games, I will say this: This game promotes the idea that big girls are dateable: an idea that is often relentlessly refuted in all kinds of media from around the world.
Japanese art is known for sexualizing larger bodies, especially in erotic mangas or games in which a character may have unusually large breasts or parts of her body emphasized for sexual emphasis. This is the first time that I, personally, have seen an accurately depicted fat character in official Japanese media. And I fucking love it.
The screenshots are official art but I pulled them (and some information in this quick rundown) from a thread here, so if you want to read more up on it, go ahead!
I’m sorry but I don’t have a parenting style or plan.
I don’t think being a parent should be a statement and I don’t think it can be mapped out.
I think being a parent is an adventure. It should be filled with mistakes you can learn from and love.
Every time I say “I’m fat” or “I need to lose 30 pounds” I feel like I’m twisting a dagger in the heart of every single person who has a higher number on the scale than me. And by every person, I don’t mean everyone I know, I mean literally every person.
I have to say this is completely legit - someone tried to steal her handbag and she simply went “Fuck this- *suplex*”
someone teach me this pweeze-ooc
Ok Ladies, here’s the info on this move.
We are blessed with a low center of gravity. This means that when we get ahold of someone and tip over backward like that, it’s easy peasy for us to do. Especially on a guy. Think of it like a fulcum and lever: they’re the lever, we’re the fulcrum, and because their center of gravity is up in their chest, instead of in their pelvis, when we get down low and lean back, whupsy there they tip right over.
Now, here’s the real deal on that particular move. Check out how this gif end, with the guy’s head on the floor like that? How his torso seems straight up and down, his head and neck on the floor, all his body weight and the momentum of having been tossed over her shoulder?
Yeah, he’s pretty messed up from that. In the really real world, if you do that move correctly, toss your whole body into it, seriously oomph it up and give that mugger a throw, you can snap his neck.
All that said, here’s how you do it!
This is something you do fast, ladies. Move quickly and with assurance, and don’t worry about whether you’re strong enough to do it or not: you are. This is about physics, not muscle.
Get low, bend your knees and hips. Our strength is largly concentrated in our lower bodies, and when we put our knees and thighs into a move, we bring some of the largest muscles in the human body to bear. You’d be surprised what you can move with your legs.
When she got low on him, her right arm was around his waist, her shoulder roughly at or under his ass, her left arm wrapped around his left leg. Feet shoulder width apart for a nice stable base, big deep breath in, and lift just a bit while falling backwards. It doesn’t take much strength but it will really mess with the dude’s day. Landing on your head will at the very very least knock you silly for a minute.
Interestingly, we can use these same basic principles to ruin a guy’s day if he’s the one to grab us! Imagine, if you will, mugger dude runs up behind you and bear hugs you in preparation for dragging you into the alley. Scary, right? Yep.
If he lifts you too fast, and you find your feet off the ground, kick him in the shins, scrape your shoes down his legs, aim for the knees and his feet. Toss your head back and head butt him. Bite him. Squirm. Do what it takes to get your feet back on the ground.
Feet on the ground, grab his arms and hold on to them. Don’t let him get away, because this move, ladies, will put him down and out, and if he moves away he may go for a distance weapon, or start using his fists. Hold onto his arms and keep him in close.
Again, feet shoulder width apart. Use your booty and hips now, like you’re trying to hit his not-so-manly bits with your ass, get your hips back, bend your knees and flex your hips. If he’s shortish, you should at this point have picked him up and be balancing him on your back. If he’s tall, you’re now in position to put a crimp in his style in a big way.
Tuck your head to your chest and roll forward, just like you did when you were a kid. Flip yourself forward and let gravity do the rest. You will have your head tucked down, aiming to land on the upper back of one shoulder; he won’t. This means he’ll land on his face, with the full force of his own body weight behind it as well as any momentum you’ve built up. You may very well land on top of him too.
From here, get up, run like hell towards a light source while yelling “help, fire, call 911 (or whatever emergency services number exists in your country)”
Remember, ladies, with just a little understanding of comparative anatomy and physics, you too can put a man on the ground and seriously mess up his day. But then, that’s what he was planning to do to you, so fair’s fair.
