I’ve always been a fat girl, I was a fat girl, I’m a fat woman. And my Dad saw me going out to a party once, and I was wearing hot pants, purple hot pants, really ill advised. And I was about to leave the house, and my dad saw me, so he called me in and asked me to sit down.
And I thought, “Euh, I’m going to get ‘The Talk’ now, the “get home early” talk.
But he said, “Okay, you’re wearing very short shorts”, and I said, “Yeah, that’s what you do”, like ‘you’re the fool’.
And he said: “Yeah, well, wearing those shorts they way you are is going to attract a lot of attention, from a lot of men.” So that slightly dumbfounded me. And then he said, “Listen, you deserve all of that attention, because you are a beautiful princess. You are the most beautiful girl at that party and you deserve that attention. But, because you are the most beautiful girl there, you must the choose the right boy. Do not give your attention to the wrong boy.
And never, never, think yourself other than absolutely fantastic.
So I went out that night feeling like a Queen, and I didn’t talk to any boys, because they didn’t deserve me."
I follow thisisthinprivilege and a couple other body positivity blogs, you included now =) I have enough gender dysphoria without thinnies telling me I should be ashamed of how I look in general...
Pleased to have you here, lots of love to you <3
Read your post about the mean-spirited fat-mocking tweet from Kelly Oxford (that Ellen screened on her show.) Amanda Bynes recently blocked Oxford, since Oxford was trolling Byne's feed - just to surf off Byne's current fame - a favorite tactic of Oxford's, who's all about being famous. The irony is: Oxford was taunting Bynes for having plastic surgery, while Oxford herself is so ashamed of her flat chest, it fuels her bullying completely. She attacks other people to divert attention.
Wow, she sounds like a piece of work.
