Fat Happy Vegan Space Manatee - Sticker
When I went vegan in 2007 I was fat. In the 13 years since, I have remained fat. Unfortunately in a movement that is supposed to represent justice and a fight against oppression I still found that my body was subject to ridicule, rude remarks and accusations that I must not be a real vegan. I was told that I shouldn't represent veganism because my body would turn others off from veganism. This created an environment that is unwelcoming and often hostile to fat people. On the flip side, some well meaning advocates think they can use mainstream fatphobia as a shortcut to achieve animal liberation by pushing veganism as a magical weight loss program. This has led to the general public thinking that a vegan cannot be fat. My friends, all of these has led to a state of horrible confusion that is neither helpful to the animals we claim to be allies to, nor those of us who make up this movement. To that end, several years I started putting the phrase "fat happy vegan" on shirts, buttons and stickers. I wanted to create something that increased the representation of my fellow fat vegans. Something that lets the world know that vegans come in ALL shapes and sizes. I'm proud to present the next generation of Fat Happy Vegan with this glorious space manatee.
No need to stress about durability. This 5" long die cut vinyl stickers feature a premium coating that protects them from exposure to wind, rain, sunlight and snow. Great for bumpers, laptops or water bottles. You can even put them in your dishwasher and have them come out looking brand new!
The size chart is the measurement (in inches) of the shirt itself, not of the person wearing the shirt.
DO YOUR SHIRTS RUN BIG OR SMALL? Although there is no universal measurement standard for t-shirts (fun fact, when it comes to clothing "true to size"is a meaningless phrase) our unisex shirts run fairly average. Our fitted shirts tend to run on the smaller side. However this is still a subjective opinion in the eye of the beholder, as such we highly recommend checking out the above sizing chart before you order.
NOTES ABOUT TERMINOLOGY: People of all genders enjoy wearing our various clothing styles, so we stopped separating them out into "men's" and "women's" styles in an effort to be more accurate and inclusive. The fitted styles are typically what would be referred to as "women's" styles. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding this, please do get in touch via the contact page.
LARGER SIZES?: In every garment we use, we order every sizing option available to us. This produces a range of XS through 2X in the fitted styles and XS through 4X in the standard styles. While this offers a range of 15 different sizes to choose from, we realize that this does not necessarily accommodate every body size and type out there. The ethical standards that we have set for the company (organic or recycled, sweat shop free and USA made) also severely limits us in many ways including color, style and, most unfortunately, sizing options. We recognize that this is not an ideal situation and are constantly on the look out for other garment manufacturers who can create sizes above 3X that don't compromise our commitment to ethical labor practices and eco friendly materials. If you have any leads in this department, please get in touch!
SHIRT BRAND: The brand we currently print on is Royal Apparel, which has a very similar fit and feel as American Apparel.
