vivalafifi asked: WHERE'D YOU GET THAT SKIRT in your last photo-post? (btw: I popped over from HeyFatChick who reblogged you.) :-)
My ma got it for me in the US of A in the Forever 21 plus size section. Not sure if they still have it on their website? xxxxxx
How much more important fashion and beauty regimes are to fat women as a means of acceptance.
You have these fascinations with “fresh faced beauty” and celebrities without makeup on and how much guys love girls in tshirts and sweats.
“Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no make-up on
That’s when you’re the prettiest, I hope that you don’t take it wrong”
But that never-NEVER- applies to fat women.
If we don’t have fierce make up skills, do our hair up, have our nails freshly manicured, dress like we’re plus sized models, we’re slobs. Doesn’t matter if I’m straight out the shower with clean clothes—- if we aren’t looking trendy, we’re gross.
I am more of a tank top and jeans girl, I don’t wear make up every day and all I do to my admittedly short hair is straighten it and I get told all the time I should take more pride in my appearance.
While thin girls are walking around wearing the exact same shit and being lauded as low maintenance.
Do you honestly think someone like, say, Honey Boo Boo’s mother would be ridiculed as much if she wore expensive clothing, had manicured nails, had her hair perfectly styled and had someone do her make up every day? No.
So while you all are shitting on Taylor’s post and saying we can just go to Walmart, remember that that shit isn’t enough for people like you. To be afforded human decency while fat, you need to embody “the best of the best”.
It’s like society thinks that we owe them maximum effort and time and money spent if we dare to be fat.
#’getting strong without being broken first’ is like all i want from anything but especially girl monster stories #stop making women small before you let them be big #i am tired of revenge stories #i am tired of all my heroines hurting
No, there is not a documented epidemic of brutal murders of fat people for being fat, but there is a documented epidemic of failure to provide life-saving healthcare: Google will easily help you find stories of fat people who died while emergency crews laughed at their weight and appearance, of fat people who were told they should lose weight to fix problems actually caused by blood clots, cancer, internal injuries, infections, and myriad other problems that later killed them, because their doctors couldn’t see past their fat to properly treat them. Google will also easily help you find stories of medical equipment that cannot accommodate fat bodies, of anesthetists who accidentally kill fat people in surgery, of doctors who prescribe wrong doses for fat bodies, of drug trials that make no attempt to include fat patients. Google will also easily help you find stories of fat people who did not seek life-saving healthcare because they had been so viciously fat-shamed by doctors their whole lives that they had given up hope of finding sensitive and caring providers who would treat them.
Fat people die because of fat hatred ALL THE TIME."
Last year, I went to a spine center because I had a herniated disc in my back. I had been treated for it before, so I knew that was the issue. I was in horrible pain. The doctor walked in, looked at me, and then told me to lose weight and then I’d feel better. Luckily, a nurse saw me sobbing after he left and had a PA come in to see me. She ordered an immediate MRI, which showed I had one of the worst herniations my neurologist has ever seen. I ended up having last minute surgery so I wouldn’t permanently lose bowel control.
