If you are a body positive warrior, there are plenty of ways聽to聽show it, like with Tess Holliday鈥檚 new #effyourbeautystandards tee. You can even show your love for the movement when it comes to decorating your home.聽Rachele Cateyes is an artist and body positive activist who lives in Portland, Oregon. She started a pro-inclusivity聽line of pillows, mugs, bags and more聽that she cheekily dubbed聽鈥淕lorifying Obesity鈥 that promotes self-acceptance. When we asked her about the inspiration behind her art, she told us, 鈥淎ll fat people deserve to be treated fairly whether or not we meet arbitrary health or beauty standards. The body positive movement should be inclusive and doesn鈥檛 require fat people to justify their behaviors.鈥


There are some out there who might recoil at the use of certain words like 鈥渇at鈥 or 鈥渙bese鈥 when describing the body positive movement, but that鈥檚 all part of Rachele鈥檚 bigger picture. Like any disenfranchised group reclaiming slurs or derogatory terms, that is Rachele鈥檚 objective 鈥 to聽reappropriate these terms and聽use them in a聽positive way. 鈥淕lorifying Obesity is about reclaiming fatphobic words and challenging the good fatty trope,鈥 Rachele tells us. 鈥淪urrounding ourselves with positive and empowering fat聽art, like a throw pillow that says Death Fatty, makes it easier to navigate this world as a fat person.鈥


Oh, and Rachele also happens to聽create some badass body-positive art. She has very handily put her work聽on some adorable throw pillows聽($29)聽you can purchase online at Redbubble, which, frankly, every home deserves. House-warming gift, anyone?

Check out some of the awesome designs below.


We asked her what she hopes people聽would take away from her art, and her message was simple.聽鈥淭ake up space. Eat whatever you want. Be vain. Flaunt your rolls. F鈥搆 the haters,鈥 says Rachele. Yaas, girl.
