About the Full Figured Blog

When I set about to put this site together I read tons of material from professional site designers. They had a lot to say and they advised going about things in different ways but the one thing they all agreed on is that the about page is important. The about me page should grab my visitors and let them know what reading my blog will do for them.
So, I took that advice and tried hard to write catchy headlines in the attempt to convince you that reading this blog will change your life. I wrote snappy copy about myself and society’s injustice toward full-figured women and my one-man campaign to reverse it.
It sounded good, but it rang false, because it was. I certainly do believe that there is deep injustice and I would love nothing more than to be able to bring about change but the real reason I’m writing this blog is a selfish one. I need you.
I. Need. You.
I need you because I have a little girl, and there are things I need to understand that only you can teach me. When I became a father I read books about raising girls and what I read amazed and scared me. What I read caused me to give more than a casual look to ads, television, movies, videos and music.
It terrifies me.
The writing is on the wall for my daughter. Her mom is a curvy, full-figured woman and her older sister is too and so I have no doubt my daughter will be the same. How will she react to the music that tells her she’s nothing but a toy for men to use? What will she think of the images in movies and television? What will go through her mind when a man she loves tells her she would be beautiful if only she were smaller? Being the first man in her life gives a father tremendous influence on a daughter’s life. I know I will have a lasting effect on how she grows up but still, how can I hope to counteract the pervasive and never-ending negativity our children inhale daily like air?
The short-sighted answer is, I can’t. I can’t shield her from the negative influences forever. There is no switch than I can flip to turn it off, no guarantee that she won’t see these messages and absorb them. What I can do however is put my own message out there, and it is this:   For all the men who look down on you, there are many who look up to you. For the people who told you that you would never be anything, to some of us you are the only thing. There might be some who laugh when you walk into a room, but always remember to others, you light up that same room.
Ladies, I have to give her these messages. So, I need you. Way more than you need me. I need your lessons, your wit and wisdom. I need your laughter and your tears, I need your triumphs and disappointments. I need them for my little girl. I need you so I can point to you and say, see, look. Look at who you can become.
Help me teach my daughter about all of the beauty that is out there, just waiting to be noticed - and appreciated.

    Indeed a sound investment will bring a sound return Daddy… Well spoken comments above and I feel you….I have a 2yr old lil green eyed girl who will have the same needs as she grows as your lil lady and men like you are a great introduction to masculinity…..the friendship established with true Full Figured Ladies who confidently live and present themselves with the “Fullness of Femininity” will be a blessing to her development…and yours as well!

      Hi Kei,
      I hope I’m the good introduction that you speak of. I’m trying. As for the blessings, well it’s us, the parents who are blessed. : )

    Your daughter is so lucky to have a dad like you.

    All the things you want to teach your daughter could also be said for her slimmer classmates. Pride in oneself and ignoring the negativity is so important for girls in that crucial age, where an unthoughtful word from somebody can scar a girl for life.

      Hi Tovah, thank you! And I am so lucky to have her! She\’s changed my life in more ways than I can describe. She’s made me a better man just by existing. I owe it to her to make her life the best it can be. I agree with what you said, all young girls need positive words spoken to them constantly. I saw a news story the other day about a young lady on Staten Island in New York who jumped in front of a train because of all the negativity being spoken to her. Beyond sad.
      Thank you again Tovah, don’t be a stranger. : )

    There is nothing selfish about the reason you’re writing these blogs. What you’re doing not only will help your daughter but the many women who haven’t found that love that can only come from within. These blogs will help them realize that no matter what size they are that confidence is the most sexy thing a woman can possess and attracts suitors like flowers attract bees.
    Your daughter deserves to know that she is beautiful and to never let anyone convince her otherwise. You’re doing the right thing by being that first man in her life letting her know she’s loved unconditionally, you are the first example for her of what a man should be like. Most often when little girls are daddy’s little girls and they know that love when they start dating and males don’t fall in line with what you’ve shown them a man should be they exit stage left quickly and the thoughts are “No this is not what a man should be like and if he can’t treat me as good as my dad does or better then I have no room for him in my life”. If only more men adopted the idea of realizing how important it is to be a constant in their children’s lives the world would be a much different place.
    Too many men once they leave the mother of their child/children they no longer do what is necessary for their children to this I say just because you and mom didn’t make it is no reason that you can’t make it as a good no great father.
    Sounds like you’re on the right track to me HS I commend you and wish you the best of luck in your current and future endeavors.

    Much Love, Peace and many Blessings,

      Ta’Nisha thank you so much for your kind words. I’m really trying hard to be the best dad I can be. I truly hope you are right and that when she grows up she will not stand for the BS.
      I really hope you’re right and I’m on the right track. Thank you for reading!
