This is a life-size pre-cast clay sculpture of a naked fat woman. The model is Julie Srika. The sculptor is Ramon Sierra. I think it’s beautiful and important. Breathtaking, even. Two days ago I shared it on Facebook, with the permission of both the model and the artist. Many people responded to it as I did. Facebook then deleted the thread and removed the photo from the model’s account, citing it as being in violation of their “community standards.” Appeals to Facebook have yet to be answered.
I think this is a disturbing anti-art stance, particularly vexing, considering Facebook allows far more sexually suggestive photos and sanctions pages designed to promote bigotry and bullying. Yet an amazing piece of art depicting a fat woman in proud non-sexual repose must go.
So while this is not the traditional fare for Uppity Fatty, I’m posting it here so more people can see it without the small-minded interference of Facebook’s double-standards.

i have absolutely no desire to go to work today.
all ages show (dont think it’s sold out. don’t know the bands)
i have to be there at 330.
todays the last day and then i finally get to sleep until tomorrow. UGHH….
(and i went to bed at midnight and woke up this morning at ten, that’s a lot of sleep.)
just got the call to work again today.
the only day i’ve had off this week was monday, and my next day off is next monday.
taking advantage of every hour they’re giving me because there’s nothing going on between 12/16 -12/30.
nye is going to be a packed house so that will be the saving grace for the end of the month.
I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.
I didn’t realize how much I’d miss texting people. I just got that ability back today, and I want to text EVERYONE.
but the guy is talking shit he doesn’t know about my brother and god damnit that shit just wont stand.
