I'm surprised and happy to see you're still around! You were kind of a childhood crush. I found your pictures somehow when I was young- I think through a stock image site or something! I assumed you'd have stopped modelling years ago, but it's great to see you're still here and just as attractive as ever!
Thank you so much!
I love hearing from the guys who had crushes on me as a youngsters so I can apologize – I didn’t mean to do any harm! ;-)
I have had some great feedback from young men and women over the last several years. There was one guy that came up to me at a bash that told me when he was a young teen, he was suicidal because of his preference for fat women. He happened upon my site one day and realized he wasn’t alone. He said I saved his life. It made me cry. Still does a bit when I think about it.
I had always hoped my site would be a positive influence. Early on I applied the tagline on my site “Changing the World’s View of Fat Chicks, One Visitor at a Time”. I figured at best I would sway some minds into thinking that fat people were ~OK~ and not just objects of ridicule. I also hoped that I would help other fat women see that they’re not limited to a life of self-hatred, that there is another way to live. Over the last 18ish years, I’ve heard from LOTS of people who fell into those categories. It always felt good to hear.
But, I didn’t envision impressionable minds looking at my site and helping form/express/hone their sexual preferences. Nor did I expect to to save any lives.
Can you imagine? A few simple pixels on a screen can do these things??
So much of what we hear in the media these days is how these simple pixels can do harm. Cyber-bullying, as an example. Aside from the large waves of pixel pushing influence where positive bandwagoning begins, very little positive coverage ends up in the media. The little positive beacons aren’t really heard on that level, but I know from my experience, the little positive sites are doing good one page hit at a time.
