Fat my ass!


Do you get the feeling that even society's idea of the ideal plus size woman is not really plus size but actually just a few pounds heavier than a size 8?  Seriously?  I remember when a certain fashion magazine had this photo in their mag and it was such a huge deal for people that there were fatties in the mag.  But hello!  When I think FAT, I do not think size 10 or 12.  I think size 20+.  These women are NORMAL, people!  They're not the size 0's that magazines love to use normally and so to the fashion world they look fat.  They're NOT fat.  They look like our neighbors, teachers, mail carriers, and baristas.  What they don't look like are fatties.  COME ON fashion world!  Let's actually move the fatties up to the top for some real recognition.  THEN we can talk!

I was doing a google search on plus size poses for photography and there's all kinds of perverted crap that comes up.  Do a search for just modeling photo poses and there's all sorts of hits.  What a shame that the world, although it claims to be getting better, is so hung up on size.  SIZE MATTERS but only in some things....and you ladies know what I'm talkin' about.  Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.  Haha!

I am hearing you loud and clear. Big can be beautiful but not necessarily pleasing to look at. For instance in my case I am 5' and 278 lbs with rolls all over the place. Please God make me 6' and those rolls will disappear.....crap nothing happened, well back to being short and fat. I'd settle for a size 14 again and that is my goal.

I have wished a thousand times that puberty had seen me growing up instead of out. I'm 4'11" and almost 300 pounds. That's just not natural! Argh. I'd be happy at anything that isn't in the size 20-something.
