ABOUT FAT LIB INK

Fat Lib Ink is the art & swag department of Fat Rose.

Fat Lib Ink was the seed of Fat Rose, and now Fat Rose is blooming and  taking Fat Lib Ink as one of many projects.

Here is what Fat Lib Ink had to say from  the start.

For a movement that includes Fat people and Fat Liberation, Disabled people and Disability Justice

WE AIM TO:

+ INSPIRE and EMPOWER FAT & DISABLED PEOPLE everywhere to help create and engage in the broad LIBERATION movement: for JUSTICE for all, and against all oppression.

+ TELL the MOVEMENT that FAT & DISABLED PEOPLE are FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE, and that a free & just world includes JUSTICE & LIBERATION for FAT PEOPLE & DISABLED PEOPLE. The EMBODIED WISDOM & POWER of fat & disabled people is vital to our movement.

WE GIVE THANKS TO:

+ DISABILITY JUSTICE: a movement & framework created by queer, disabled people of color, that goes beyond disability rights and insists we understand the tapestry of unjust systems: capitalism, racism, settler colonialism, heteropatriarchy, & mass incarceration that require ableism and body-mind oppression.

+ FAT LIBERATION: the lesbian feminists of the 70s & 80s who said “fuck you” to diet culture; the “RIOTS NOT DIETS” dykes and queers of the 90s; the Black, Indigenous, POC, Trans, Non-Binary, Superfat & Disabled fat folks who have worked to build a FAT JUSTICE movement that centers the most marginalized; and the radicals who understand that systemic fat oppression is not addressed by “body positivity.”

+ ALL THE LIBERATION MOVEMENTS that make or have made Fat Liberation & Disability Justice possible: BLACK LIBERATION, WOMEN’S LIBERATION, QUEER LIBERATION, TRANS JUSTICE, INDIGENOUS SOVEREIGNTY, DISABILITY RIGHTS, and so many others.

NOBODY IS FREE UNTIL EVERYBODY IS FREE.
