But I just can't get over... this. I mean, I'm all about fat people being able to do anything a thin person can do. I think that it's unfair that society as a whole says I can't be a sex symbol. I don't like having a "complex" about myself.
But Beth... Beth... You could do it with a touch more class, couldn't you?
I was in a store with my mom looking at shoes for her wedding. There was a pair she really liked, but her toes just wouldn't go to the end of the shoe, and the guy said, "These just aren't going to work for you."
I agree that everyone should be able to look and feel beautiful. Fat girls shouldn't be be confined to sweatpants and mumus, but should they also go running around in hot pants? One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing fat girls in clothes they really have no business wearing. It's like, you could go with this outfit that accentuates your muffin top, or you could go with something that shows off your fat girl assets, like your big titties or your hot waist-to-hip ratio. I'm just saying that there are things that are sexy about big girls. The boyfriend I had pre-Jon always loved my curves - my hips, my butt, my boobs. These are things to be proud of. I look better in a clingy, low-cut dress than a thin girl does because I have the curves and the tits to fill it out! That's what I can't freakin' stand. It's kind of like the women who try to prove that they're as good as men by adopting the mannerisms and machismo of a man. I don't want to be respected by men by becoming a man... I want to be respected by men in the skin that I have.
I think Beth Ditto sends the wrong message to fat girls... No, you can't do hot pants or skinny jeans or tighter-than-tight clothing... But you do wear other things better than a thin girl could. Why don't you flaunt what you've got instead of pretending that you don't have it at all?
This all could make sense and be true... or it might not. What do U think about fat-shion? Isn't there a way that you can be sexy or look good at any size? By trying to pull off clothes meant for thin girls, aren't we essentially saying that it's ok to let everyone judge us based on those standards? That it's very clear that we don't "fit" into a thin world?
