Twitter user @yrfatfriend recently went viral for her epic thread on flying while fat. 

People were quick to share the thread and add their own frustrating experiences on planes, boats, and basically every form of public transit that isn't equipped to serve plus-size people. 

While these inconveniences can be a deterrent to traveling while fat, there's a a reason bigger people are forgotten in transit seating and accommodation design — it's the stereotype that fat people are lazy and don't travel anyway. 

Anette Richmond, the woman behind the Instagram account @FatGirlsTraveling, is doing her part to eradicate that thinking once and for all. 

Richmond's Instagram account celebrates self-described "fat" women as they travel the world.

"Traveling is my newest obsession. I’ve visited 14 countries in the last two years," Richmond wrote on her blog. "I’ve always wanted to see the world, and until recently, I didn’t think that was possible. In October of 2017, I will be embarking on the adventure of a lifetime! I’ll be traveling through Asia for a year, studying culture, fashion, and beauty. I am a voice for fat travelers."

The photos feature women from all over the world.

While Richmond first posted photos of herself and her travels, she soon began to share submissions from her readers, which she receives via a private Facebook group or through Instagram.

Fat Girls Traveling smashes the idea that only a certain type of body is fit for adventures.

Countless body shamers are obsessed with the idea that fat people don't travel because they're "lazy." That's simply not true; curvy, plus-size, and non-straight size women do travel, all the time. There are, however, tons of restrictions placed upon their travel goals, like the need to potentially buy an extra seat or use a seat belt extender.

We think all of these women are ready to go on an adventure.
