…and to the sad cow who thought she was a hero because she dissed what I was wearing, but wouldn’t apologise when called on it, because apparently she could have said things to me “that were way worse than she did, and the fashion industry is a harsh place” here’s a big middle finger extended your way sadcase, I won’t stop wearing whatever I like, you can go right ahead and enjoy your small-view life somewhere else xo
Also, Tongue In Cheek is now on Instagram too, where updates will be posted regularly on what I’m up to with my creations and any news. Just search TongueInCheekBoutique
Don’t forget that we have Facebook too, which I will keep updated as I will the Etsy store. This will also offer yet another media outlet for me to communicate with potential buyers and fans of my work :)
Please check it out, I’d really appreciate the support 😁
It was a lovely day at the park, today. I had an audience of kids watching me. “She’s so beautiful." *dreamy sigh* Kids are so honest… and I’ve been feeling shy about leaving the house, lately (I’ve been staying in and training my ballet muscles). So, their love meant a lot to me.
I’ve never seen anyone reduce a fat person to their fat as much as the FA crowd do it.
Just think about it for a second.
For starters, they’re the ones that will describe themselves as a “fat” anything. They could be proud of their fatness or calling themselves fat so no one else can do it before them; but even then, they’re the ones that put the fact that they’re fat ahead of everything else.
They could be fashion designers, teachers, models, CEO of a huge company or queens of the world but no, they’re fatshion designers, fat teachers, fat models, fat CEOs and fat queens of the world. They’re the ones putting their fatness before everything else.
They’re also the first to identify 100% with a fiction character that shares their ‘body type’ (being overweight isn’t a body type) regardless of their traits, personality, backstory, etc. The character is fat, they are fat, ergo everything that happens to the fat character is going to reflect what the creator thinks of all fat people because, apparently, to Fat Acceptance supporters fat people are all the same.
But it gets worse!
There are people who no longer seem to be capable of reading “obesity” as a condition. Instead, they seem to read “Obesity” as “Myself”. Then you end up with someone saying “We need to find a way to eradicate obesity” and they’ll understand “we need to find a way to kill all fat people”
They don’t understand “We need to find a way to help people lose weight”
They don’t understand “We need to educate people so they learn how to have a more balanced diet”
They don’t understand “We need to work on food deserts and remove unhealthy food from schools”
They’ll understand “EXTERMINATE FAT PEOPLE”
Because FA supporters are no longer people, they’re FAT people, because apparently their fat always comes first.
