Whitney titled her video Fat Girl Dancing she has no qualms with that word!!!
She breaks it down why she titled her video Fat Girl Dancing
” No one else chose it for me to shame me or make fun of me. I chose it because I’m OWNING it. I’m making a point – I’m fat AND I can dance. I’m juxtaposing the two things together in a way that people think is not possible. And hopefully, I’m changing some minds about what fat people are capable of. 19 years after I first internalized my fat shame, I’m finally learning to let it go. I’ve learned how to be fat, beautiful, smart and fucking fabulous ALL at the same time. I don’t have to be one or the other. I don’t have to let F-word define my capabilities and you don’t either.” I’m a bad-ass and a fat-ass and that is perfectly all right with me.
Check out her moves and what her campaign is all about!
