Since I have the platform to do so, I figured we could have a good old fashioned public shaming today.
Twitter was a hot bed of meanness during the Grammy’s this year. Apparently, only women who weigh less than 120 pounds deserve a Grammy.
No one is getting their Twitter handle blacked out for this. If you want to act like an asshole, you will be treated like an asshole.
Today, Fat Shamers, WE SHAME YOU!
Mr Jason Falls is a special case. He is the lead Digital Strategist for Cafe Press, and he has about 65,000 Twitter followers. One would think that with his following and job title, Jason would be a teeny bit more responsible on social media. I will no longer be buying a thing from Cafe Press, thank you very much.
So, dear Fat Shamers, let me show what it looks like to try to find a dress for a formal event… when you are not a size 0, or 2, or 4, or even a size 8….
I am sure your sensitive little baby eyes are bleeding right out of your face right now, Fat Shamer.
And you, Fat Shamer, you are wondering what the hell you just witnessed in that photo of me. Well, let me tell you what you just saw there. You just saw a size 12 woman, in some broken down Spanx (because those things cost $40, so us “big boned” girls make them last as long as we can), trying on a dress that was marked “XL”. An extra large for who, exactly?
But such is life when you weigh more than 120 pounds.
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, makes me more upset that fat shaming.
I hope you’ll share this post. Today, we shall publicly shame the Fat Shamers.
(these are hugs and kisses from me… someone who is TONS of fun)
