calling people fat

Gap Sales Guy: “Can I help you find anything?”
Me: “If my choices in jeans are either ‘Skinny’ or 'Slim’, I don’t think so.”
Gap Guy: “We also have 'Athletic Stretch’…”
Me: “Does anything about my appearance indicate that I might be athletic?”
Gap Guy:
Gap Guy: “They’re our most, um, relaxed cut.”
Me: “So the 'Athletic’ cut is what you call your unathletic fat people pants now? Doesn’t that just seem wrong somehow?”
Gap Guy:
Gap Guy: “They also have a stretch to them.”

Please don’t criticize Trump on his appearance.

It actually causes you to lose credibility, and in addition is kind of bigoted.  

A lot of things are wrong with Trump, and it’s more effective to focus on actual policies and actions of his, rather than his appearance. 

Decrying Trump for his weight, his skin, or his hair is not that different from those who decry feminists as “fat, unattractive lesbian man-haters”. 

Someone can be good president if they are conventionally unattractive. 

Someone cannot, however, be a good president if they are transphobic, misogynistic, racist, homophobic, ableist, and classist. 

Attack policy and personality, not physique. 

the difference between josh being annoying and banging pots and pans to get a rise out of people, and jody/paul the rest of these people who have said/done TERRIBLE problematic things is that josh is more than likely not like that in his real life, whereas the rest of them ARE pieces of shit in their real lives.

to give you an idea of how disappointing this met gala has been…

this is a well known commes de garcons look right

gaga wore it because people were calling her fat and she was like you know what fuck you i’m not defined by my shape and guess what she looked high fashion and cool as fuck 

anyway all these bitches should have stepped their pussies up

okay. please read this.

there is a viral post going around of a tweet. the tweet says something along the lines of, “I look African American in my display picture. I’m white I swear” and then a picture of a girl.

please do not share that photo. please do not make fun of that girl and her appearance.

that tweet was posted in 2012 by my best friend. 5 years ago, she wasn’t as educated. she didn’t know what was or was not okay to say.

someone dug up that tweet to use it against her, and it’s spread everywhere. it’s all over twitter, instagram, facebook, and probably even tumblr.

the person who posted it has cropped out the date so you think it’s recent. it’s not. it’s 5 years old, when she was younger and dumb.

please, please do not share that post. and please do not attack her for her looks.

Why is it that when you’re fat people think they own your body
Like why do they think they can comment on my weight or what I do or don’t eat

Why do they think they get unlimited access to my body and my habits

Why am I supposed to let people make comments about how much I eat and just be okay with it?? “Oh /someone’s/ hungry today” “are you sure you need that much?” “Oh is that all you’re going to eat?” Like WHY do people feel the need to tell me about how much I’m eating

I /know/ how much I’m eating, I know if it’s unhealthy or not, but I’m gonna eat what I want because it makes me feel better about people calling me a fat ass and telling me I have no self control

I’m fat and I love to bake and cook all the time and people look at me like I say I like to kick puppies when I tell them that

What is wrong with people when i have to worry about telling people what I like to do because I’m scared they’re only gonna see a fat person who only thinks of food

hello its me your local chubby geek who is also recovering from a past eating disorder here with an important PSA

DONT shame skinny people who call themselves fat!!! do not!!! i know its infuriating to see a skinny person call themselves fat (because they dont know what its like to be what is widely considered “fat”) but we have to keep in mind that everyone’s standard of beauty is different and how people perceive themselves as well as others is completely relative.

maybe that skinny person has dysmorphia? maybe they’re anorexic or bulimic? maybe theyre just insecure? you dont know their situation or what theyre thinking when they look at their body in the mirror.

the best thing to do is to reassure them that all bodies are beautiful, be they skinny, stocky, tall, short, bulky, muscular, splotchy, dark-toned, discolored, disabled, wrinkly, hairy, scarred, chubby, non-proportional, missing a part or two, average, or otherwise. 

The Predator’s Obsession

Summary: In this current day Avengers AU, you work as a profiler with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Your boyfriend, Steve Rogers, leads a close-knit group of supervisory special agents as they track a killer.

Author’s Note: POV changes. Any terminology mistakes are mine, and mine alone. I hope you enjoy.


You figured you’d been held hostage six days, although you weren’t entirely sure. Who knew, it could be more. Probably not, though. It was hard to tell the passage of time when you were at the bottom of a pit. Besides being cold and dirty, you were past the point of being hungry, the point where it no longer growled, complaining that you weren’t eating. Now it just hurt, sending stabs of pain through your weak and weary body. The water that had been sent down this morning was almost gone; less than a cup remained, but you weren’t going to drink it. Not yet. Not when you knew you wouldn’t be getting more until the next morning.

Sitting in the cool dirt, you pressed your back to the rough wall, drew your legs up, and rested your shaking arms atop your knees. Your head fell back and your eyelids fluttered closed. Damn, you were tired, but you couldn’t fall asleep. Not because you were incapable of doing so, but because you refused to. Not when you didn’t want to miss a thing. Even the most insignificant thing could save your life. That’s what Steve had always told you. Well, him and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Being a profiler for the FBI and long-time girlfriend of Steve Rogers; highest ranking special agent in Brooklyn, you had learned a lot. But all of those lessons learned failed you the moment a rag soaked with chloroform was shoved over your face. Your mouth went sour at the memory, and it took everything you had to keep from drinking the water sitting so very close to you.

Every hour that passed, your body grew weaker, but you knew that you could last a bit longer. Sure, you hadn’t eaten in over a week, but you weren’t built like Natasha or Wanda. You had hips and a great ass, tits that made other men stare while their girlfriends rolled their eyes. There were curves in places some women dreamed about having, but it didn’t stop there. Your stomach was soft and bore light purple and pink stretch marks, there was cellulite on your hips and thighs, and you had to specially order your bras. You had a double chin, your upper arms jiggled, and your thighs spread out, touching when you sat down. Most people called you fat, a whale, hideous, but you knew better than to play into their mind games. You weren’t stupid, you knew you were overweight, curvy, voluptuous, but Steve called you beautiful.

The garage door opened, sending a low-pitched rumble through the house and deep into the basement. The wall at your back trembled, pushing clumps of dirt into your hair and down your now slightly baggy and sweat-stained shirt. You shouldn’t have been afraid, but your heart kick-started painfully, and your hands were shaking as your torn and ragged nails dug into the dirt next to your hips.

His steps were heavy as he strode through the house with murderous purpose, the heels of his shoes scraping along the floor as he went. The closer he got to the door that was locked five times at the top of the stairs, the louder the floor creaked. It was deliberate, the way he would throw the locks slowly, as if he wanted to draw it out, the suspense of it all, to send fear surging through your veins, pumping your blood harder, your heart all but pounding out of your chest. He got off on it, you were damn sure of that. You weren’t the most sought after profiler on the eastern seaboard for nothing; you knew your shit.

Too bad that hadn’t saved you.

People need to stop calling Himchan fat. People need to stop saying that Himchan needs to lose weight. People need to stop saying that Himchan needs diet. People need to understand that this makes Himchan sick.

Himchan is a singer, his weight is not important to me or to you. Stop making him feel bad, stop belittling him.

Himchan is a great artist in every way, but people are closing their eyes to him, almost all comments on his instagram is about weight and diet (even the comments with good intentions), and never about how amazing and special he is.

Can you think for a minute?

His weight is none of our business. What he eats is none of our business.

Jokes about weight are not funny. These jokes made Himchan have excessive weight loss and go to the hospital. Have people forgotten that?

Let’s be realistic and don’t fantasize or romanticize any situation here. People will continue doing this with Himchan until his situation is irreversible? Until he gets very sick?

This is a great psychological preassure. And psychological pressure is aggression, violence.

For God’s sake, leave Himchan alone. He is a adult man who takes care of his own life.

And please stop defending and supporting “jokes” about Himchan’s weight (even if the one who made the “joke” was a friend of his, or even a BAP member).

"You are not fat, you have fat."

A seemingly bright, helpful statement.

It’s horribly misguided.

You see, when someone calls themselves fat, it is a revolutionary action based out of years of people calling them fat with the notion that fat is bad. Fat is unhealthy. Fat is diseased. Fat is other. Fat is death.

When someone calls themselves fat, they are positing themselves in a world that does not want them to exist unabashedly.

Fat leveled against someone as an insult is indicative of the culture we live in: one that prizes thin existence amongst many other things.

Fat has been MADE into an identifier, and so when someone identifies THEMSELVES as fat, it’s not helpful to return to that old way of thinking by saying:

“You’re not fat, you’re beautiful.”

“You’re not fat, you look wonderful.”

“You’re not fat, you’re healthy.”

Providing people with the “good news” that they’re “not fat” just distances themselves from their bodies further and increases self-hatred.

Let fat be beautiful.
Let fat be wonderful.
Let fat be healthy.

Let fat people call themselves fat.
