“Fat Phobia”: 1. Pathological fear of fatness, 2. Pervasive disease affecting society and propagated under the false guise of “War on Obesity,” 3. Most common symptom is Fat Shaming,” 4. Frequently a result of other humyns’ own internalized Fat Phobia Shadows being projected onto any other fat body because Society has consistently warped and manipulated our perceptions of what feels and looks pleasurable to our primal instinct attractions.


I have officially launched this #FuckFatPhobia Campaign not just to continue raising awareness about the Disease of Fat Phobia, but to continue challenging it blatantly. Visiblising the invisible. Speaking the unspoken. Honor your truth. Please join myself and Wear Your Voice Magazine in claiming your social media spaces with #FuckFatPhobia – take your own photos inspired by challenging the status quo…surprise us, and perhaps yourself in the process! You can also tag me @somewhere_under_the_rainbow on Instagram, @RachelMaryOtis on Twitter (which I’m admittedly still finagling), and Rachel Otis on Facebook – and of course @wearyourvoicemag everywhere, in addition to e-mailing me your photos if you prefer: rachel@wyvmag.com. Thanks for all of the support, love, and inspiration!

Being raised in New England, the west coast has always felt like a breath of progressive, laid-back, open-minded, fashion-forward air to my free-spirited soul, which is what drew me to California. Escaping the more cookie-cutter traditional white picket fence life, has led me on an adventurous journey toward self-love and acceptance, and ultimately body positivity! I am in Oakland, because I moved to the Bay Area for graduate school to become a licensed Somatic Psychotherapist, and after exploring different city options, I discovered that the eclectic, unique, and honest vibe of Oakland resonated with my funky spirit and style! My role in WYV as Senior Columnist is producing weekly articles on Body Positive Fashion, Fat Acceptance, and many of my other passions such as social justice, childcare, and chronic illness advocacy. Of course I'm constantly being inspired by my very diverse (fashionably and otherwise) Oakland peers, local business owners, and fat/body positive activists!
