ugh why am i even posting it

So this is a totally useless rant, but as a skinny girl, I’m getting extra, extra tired of fat-shaming.

I work for a corsetier at a Renaissance Faire. We sell corsets. Not flimsy bullshit costume corsets; like real, durable, waist-training corsets. Today a woman came in with her boyfriend, so I helped her pick out a corset and try it on. While her boyfriend—who was decidedly enthused about the whole corset thing—sat watching me lace her in, he told me, grinning, “Of all the good jobs at the Renaissance Faire, I think you have the best.”

I shrugged in agreement. “I touch butts and reach down cleavage all day; I mean…” Because we like to be a bit rakish at the Faire, and, y’know, it’s true. Tying people into corsets pretty much invariably requires getting handsy.

The couple laughed at that, and the boyfriend said, “That’s the job I would want!” But then he chuckled again and said, offhand, “Or maybe not; while we were looking at the racks, there were some pretty big sizes on there!”

Our sizes are all done in inches, and the biggest we make is a 46. And you’d better believe our large sizes sell. For a second I wasn’t sure what to say to the guy’s comment, but I answered him casually. “We get a lot of beautiful big ladies in here.” Because we do. “We make corsets for real women, not Barbie dolls,” I added. Wasn’t trying to be smart, just kind of tossed it out there because that’s the line we like to use when people ask about larger sizes, and because, again, we do.

The boyfriend went quiet at that; I didn’t think anything of it, I just kept on lacing. A moment later, he said, a little awkwardly (but sincerely enough), “Didn’t mean to be offensive.”

I quickly smiled and brushed it off, said he wasn’t, said I was just saying. (Don’t want to make the customers uncomfortable, you know?) And that was the end of it. His comment had rubbed me the wrong way, but it wasn’t a big deal. Now, I wear a 20-inch corset. I’m a few cup sizes short of being one of the Barbie dolls. Like his girlfriend, I’m one of the “hot chicks”; he doesn’t have to worry about offending me by implying that I wouldn’t be fun to poke and pull at.

Honestly though, of all the people I fit sexy technically-undergarments to in a day, fat girls are maybe my favorite people to lace up. Because they are just so damn happy that we have stuff that fits them. They are so damn happy that the corsets we make in their sizes are all the same pretty, shiny colors and cool flower/dragon/skull/etc. prints that the smaller corsets are, not ugly beige and boring “granny” colors. They are so goddamn happy that at least one (of several on the grounds) corset shop carries things that they can wear, that they actually want to wear, and that they look fucking awesome in. This is only my second season working, and we’ve fit 60+ inch waists and double-K busts. The only people we’ve ever had to tell sorry, we don’t have anything that fits them, are twelve-year-old kids.

It’s half-wonderful, half-heartbreaking how excited those women get. Women who say with sad smiles, when we ask if they want to get fitted, “Oh, no, you don’t have anything that fits me,” and then are stunned when we’re 300% confident that yes we do, and we have options. Women who can’t stop smiling and looking at themselves in the mirror after we’ve got them laced in.

I had a lady last week whose waist I measured (cinching the tape tight, as per procedure) at 41 inches—honestly not all that big. So she picked out a 41-inch corset to try on. I could tell halfway through getting her laced that it was going to be a bit big for her, so I mentioned it and said she might do better to try a smaller size. She started crying on the spot. She was so overwhelmed; she couldn’t believe someone had just told her that a 41 was too big. She told me about how hard clothes shopping was for her, how her mother would tell her she needed an XXXL instead of an XXL, how she had recently lost weight but still couldn’t wear certain colors because they didn’t fit or she wasn’t confident enough.

She did end up getting her corset, and after I checked her out she asked if she could give me a hug, so we ended up standing there hugging each other for a minute. While we did, I told her, “Do not ever let anyone tell you any bullshit. You are gorgeous.” She said, “I have a new boyfriend and he keeps telling me that.” I told her he was right, and to just keep telling herself she’s gorgeous; it was okay if she didn’t always believe it, but to keep telling herself anyway. (That’s how I talked myself through shit when I had bad anxiety.)

We all know fat-shaming is bad. The stupidity, fatphobia, and misogyny of it has pissed me off since I first became aware of it. But working with clothing, especially as figure-hugging and precise as corsets, has given me a new perspective on it—how much it affects people and just how shitty it is. Like, what does it say that I had a grown, only average-big woman crying into my shoulder because she was so overjoyed not to be the uppermost extremity of what a manufacturer can clothe?

My job rocks and it’s really rewarding, but sometimes it highlights some of the ugliest shit about society. I’m so glad I work at a shop that’s not bullshit about body types and operates with more people in mind than just scrawny white chicks like me. The fat women I work with are a ton of fun to lace up, and they’re so much more than their size—they’re cool, they’re smart, they’re funny, they’re sweet, they’re great to talk to, and yes, they’re hot. I’m so damn done with them getting short-changed and shamed by petty fucks who refuse to make them nice clothes, who refuse to even try to work for them, who refuse to consider them pretty. This whole rant was useless and won’t get read, but I had to vent because it’s been driving me nuts.

So actually, screw you, random dude. Fat girls are the highlight of my job.

Coran’s cutie mark is a gear with a flower around it….bc he’s Coran Coran the Gorgeous Man.


Made with this thing called MLP Pony Creator by  Generalzoi, but I did some edits + the cutie marks

anonymous asked:

What do you think of Gigi's Vogue Arabia cover? She claims her Palestinian roots for it.

lmao using her Palestinian roots again when its for her advantage..why am i not surprised. the cover is “pretty” but I find it offensive. like she’s wearing a headdress/scarf in the cover but clearly she’s nude in the photo so they’re sexualizing something thats not supposed to be sexualized. and like why is having your head covered the epitome of the middle east LMAO like ugh its such a cliche cover and gigi’s dumb ass ig post saying shit about celebrating different cultures…like your culture is not being celebrated, it’s dying but you cant even speak out about it lmao and like they shouldn’t have used an american model to start with bc you get dumb shit like this

I am going to try and do this again. Last time I wrote this I was in a rather shaky state, my apologies:

To TGWeaver:
He drew a parody of my Character Maxton Midnight. Someone posted me a link and wrote “you gotta see this” I clicked and I saw and my little brain freaked out and thought “THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEFFFFF” right away. Without even giving it a chance to collect all facts. So like he said so well himself; I immediately raged out and handled it VERY unprofessionally. Sent my “army” on him. Ugh..NOT good and NOT nice. He is now under the impression that I am a bully - I am not. I can only hope you guys will believe that. But I do  understand why he would say it, and I respect his opinion in all of this. I WAS ACTING like a BULLY in this case though, and I AM NOT trying to shift any blame on him here, as far as I a concerned, the guy is innocent. It is I who made a stuuupid mistake!

I can only say that I do not know any better. I always think the worst case scenario first- it comes with being a hypochondriac i think - I did the only thing I knew in situations like this, and that is ask you guys for help. That was a mistake in this case, a bad one.

I just want to draw my comic and share it, and hope that people will like it. If they do not, then I must accept that too. It is really just a simple Wildehopps comic made by a zootopia freak who loved the movie (YES it is still wildehopps), like I have said before; there will be lots and lots more of that in the comic too. But time is not on my side, and thus, it takes WAY too long before those of you who want to see that can be “satisfied”  Inter Schminter is a comic based around Max, Marni, Nick, and Judy. I am drifting off, but point is, I understand that, since you guys do not know what I have planned for this, becomes inpatient, and stuff like that parody might happen.  

I know now that I overreacted - it has been proven time and time again that I clearly do not take criticism well (especially when it comes to my OCs) So I will think twice, maybe even Ten times, next time something like this happen.

So again (with what hopefully is a better apology) I am truly sorry - from the bottom of my heart.

Best regards


(I am so happy to say that we have talked and that there are no hard feelings on either sides <3 This person gave me lots of good advice, and for that I am grateful. Go check out his art - now that my head is calm, I can actually laugh at his creative parody)


Last year, on this day, The Corner was created! It’s been so much fun meeting all of you! 

Did you know that when I first started playing MidCin, Albert was the suitor that I wanted the most? His route is coming out tonight, so it’s like a special gift to me! Actually, it’s just a big coincidence, but let me dream!

So, to thank all of my lovely corner-buddies for a wonderful year of friendship, I would like to have my harem say a few words in thanks and gratitude.

Albert, with your new route coming out, it’s your time to shine. Can you start us off?

Very sweet! Let’s see…who’s next?

Guys, don’t start! The whole harem is going to thank our corner-buddies. Albert, you were really sweet before, so keep it up.

Yes, I– no, wait! Not in front of everyone to me, to our corner-buddies! 

Nobunaga! Don’t make it sound weird!

Sid! Don’t make it look weird!

You are not helping!

I drew this last year (2016) January but never posted it anywhere. I didn’t really like it and honestly I should probably redraw it and make it look nice, but I figured I’d share it anyway because I like things like the hair and the colour choices I made.

We never got My Pretty mermaids here which is a bummer because of course I was all about mermaids in 1991, I already liked My Little Pony, and they all have really good colours! I hope I can one day get one. Even though I’m not really into dolls. But mrmaids don’t count, right?

Ugh. This needs a redo so badly -cries-

I am literally trying to wrap my head around why in God’s name would they increase Rez range during Valkaryie if you CANT EVEN REZ MULTIPLE PEOPLE ANYMORE???

Seriously all this hate just from reblogging myself sometimes i que posts for the day , Other people reblog themselves too. That have met her like 3 times, or been noticed alot or not. Theres nothing wrong with it as long as you help other people and are nice , and I am . I made a jacket and ya I post it every so often cause I worked hard on it and I made it before the tour even started for part of this reason. Because I dont want people to think im trying to meet her or something . Not at all. I made it for fun . Why Im posting it now . Ugh people :(

Horrible thought time: what if circumstancesTM occur and somehow the only solution, the only solution is that Shiro has to go into the ring and fight in another gladiator match.

Maybe someone gets kidnapped, they need to prove their worth to a warrior race, they need cash, whatever, but somehow the only solution is a gladiator fight. And of course the entire team is completely against it. Keith swears up and down he can do it, even Allura is offering to fight so that Shiro doesn’t have to, but eventually they have to conclude that Shiro is their best fighter. He’s got the experience, he can win this. And they need to win this.

And so Shiro becomes the Champion once more, walking into the ring with his head held high. He wants to scream, he wants to cry, he wants to throw up. But he can’t. Because his team needs him. They need him to be strong, they need him to win, they need him to do this

He wins, of course. And he even manages to hold it together until they can safely get back to the castleship. But after that…after that…oh Shiro…

Bechloe Week Day 7: Sunday

And here is the final oneshot for @bechloe-week 2016! Hope you enjoyed these :) Getting back into recreational writing, after, like, 7 years was really fun!

“Is that seriously what it’s called? ‘Big Gay Ice Cream Shop’? This is gold.”

“Right?! Perfection. These Sundae Sunday’s are really popular. People all over the city come here for the 2-for-1 ice cream sundaes.”

“This is pretty cool, Jesse. But you know I don’t really like ice cream. It’s too cold.”

“You mean, just like your heart?”

“UGH. Why do I even put up with you?”

“Because I am the perfect lesbro. And I was your beard all throughout college.”

True. And to add on, Beca would’ve never moved out of Atlanta if it wasn’t for Jesse connecting her with Sony’s production company in New York City. She was thankful that her lesbro has been showing her around the city for the past four days, between all of his post-production meetings.

“Hi, I’m Aubrey. Welcome to Big Gay Ice Cream Shop! What can I get for you?”

“Hey, I’ll have a scoop of mint chocolate chip and a scoop of chocolate in a waffle cone. Whaddya want, Becs? …Becs?”

The DJ, however, wasn’t paying any attention to her friend; all senses were focused on the redhead girl manning the cashier two stations away. The HOT redhead girl. An elbow to her side brought her out of her daze.

“Beca, do you want ice cream or not? Because we can get you a cupcake somewhere instead.”

“N-no… I’ll have a cookies n cream in a waffle cone, thanks,” Beca replied, eyes flicking back and forth between the redhead and Jesse. The other girl met her eye for a moment, smiled at her, then focused back on the customer. Still distracted, Beca nearly dropped the cone when Aubrey handed it to her.

I HAVE SO MANY EMOTIONS ABOUT SUGAWARA KOUSHI AND THE DATEKO MATCH BECAUSE this is it THIS IS THE MATCH where the team almost lost Asahi, the match that broke up the third years and shook Sugawara’s confidence so much that he was RELIEVED when Kageyama came along to take his spot because he thought that this match defined his talent. He thought his toss wasn’t good enough because Asahi couldn’t get through the spikers. And FINALLY they have a chance at revenge and the whole time 


So Sugawara is reduced to losing it on the sidelines while the whole Asahi regaining his confidence thing is going on. 


SO THEN they win the game and everyone goes on and on about how Karasuno finally got their revenge and Suga is super happy and all but of course he isn’t a robot he’s got feelings about the fact that while Daichi and Asahi got to settle their scores on the court he didn’t get to do that. And as gratifying as it is to see your friends succeed it’s still got to sting a  little so he says: 

And this WHOLE MATCH FUCKING SAYS EVERYTHING ABOUT SUGA AND I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS ABOUT HIM because he does get a bit down about not being able to fight alongside his friends on the court as most people would but Daichi is right, he still wants to fight. It stings and he doesn’t resent Kageyama and right now he’s looking to fight anyway he can even if it’s through Kageyama but the point is, he STILL WANTS TO FIGHT EVEN THOUGH AT THIS POINT IN TIME HE’S NOT NECESSARY TO THEM WINNING. EVEN THROUGH THAT DISCOURAGEMENT AND HIS FRIENDS MOVING AHEAD WITHOUT HIM, HE STILL WANTS TO FIGHT. and i want to cry 

Okay like… I’ve been stewing over this for the past few weeks and I really just have to ask-

What was the point of Obito controlling the Fourth Mizukage? Not even just thematically, but what actual purpose did it serve in the story? This is really fucking me up because I’m really not seeing a clear answer for this.

Like first off we know that both Obito and Yagura weren’t responsible for the graduation killings. The wiki is lying to you. It’s impossible. They’d been going on for years before he got crushed under a boulder (Mei claims to have participated when she was nine years old, which would be 22 years before the Kage Summit), and the Mist ANBU he fights after Rin dies specifically refer to themselves as members of the Bloody Mist. We also know he wasn’t responsible for the caste system, as that was in place starting with Mist’s inception. He also wasn’t responsible for the war that resulted in a lot of people with kekkei genkai getting hunted down, since that was implied to have happened between the Second War and the Third War, as Haku’s mother seemed to have gotten the hell out of dodge at around that time.

But that just highlights the biggest issue: What the hell did he do? 

We don’t know! There is next to fucking nothing we actually know about Obito and Yagura’s reign in Mist. There are only three things we know about Kiri that can be attributed to Obito/Yagura.

1. Zabuza and his crew, for some reason, really, really wanted to kill him. We don’t know why though, but Gengo implies there was something noble or just to the reason, enough that he considered accepting money from men like Gato to be a betrayal of their ideals.

2. Kiri did not participate in the Konoha held chuunin exams (the chuunin exam arc). This might even be an oversight but when we are shown the number of participants from various villages, there aren’t any Kiri nin recorded.

3. The Kaguya got bored and decided to attack the village.

That’s it. That’s actually it. Everything else we know of that’s notable in Kiri was before his time.

So why even have Obito control Yagura? I can understand his motivation fine. He wanted to avenge Rin. Sure. Whatever. But once he gains the position, what does he do with it? Nothing! You can’t even argue he was there to keep an eye on the tails beasts there considering Utakata pretty much just walked out of the village and had to be retrieved by Pein himself.

The only reason I can see that Kishimoto had Obito control the village is… for him to meet Kisame. And that’s just… weird? It’s a massive plot point with a lot of potential ramifications that reach many other characters and that’s the only purpose it served. Obito didn’t even have to be controlling Yagura at the time for them to meet either. He could have just been watching Kiri from the shadows trying to find out what happened to Rin, and stepped forward.

I am really mad about this okay. I want to know why Zabuza wanted him dead!

Ok I admit I'm complete Baekyeol trash and proud! I get the whole Boyfriend vin from them but what about sexual tension? I know it's there sometimes (or maybe that's me bc TOO MUCH SMUT) but what do you think?

Hello there darling~ <3 don’t worry ur not alone at being BaekYeol trash darling, we’re here with u. And yes ofc be proud! You go~ hahaha

OooOooOo here we go. The sexual tension. Which some ppl quote as: “Delulu BaekYeol shippers over analyzing certain BaekYeol moments.” but I’mma still post some of the moments in which I think there were (sexual) tension bet. Bh and Cy.

ye ye ye ye ye~~ submissive Bh anyone? ye?

yassss Bh yasssss.

yassss Cy yassss.

This moment was just overflowing with sexual tension like… UGH?!

Why they tryin’ so hard to not touch each other even tho they obv want to is beyond me.

yes to the touches mhmm.

wHERE IS thE c HILL ?!

I am 69% sure that in the first gif, Bh looked at Cy’s uknowwhat and that in the 2nd gif Cy looked at Bh’s ass when he bent over.

Oh wow Bh ur hand is nearing dangerous territory is it not? mmhmm? And need I mention the fact that Cy wasn’t fazed at all despite Bh’s hand being dangerously near his crotch?

I mean, if that was me I’d def be shocked. Unless I was used to it already. SO maybe Cy is used to having Bh’s hand being near his uknowwhat? Or I’m just delulu af, yep that’s prob it.

We all know Cy wanted to touch Bh’s hand and WHY DON’T U JUST TOUCH IT TO MAKE BAEKYEOL SHIPPERS’ LIVES EASIER?! By killing us then reviving us again, how nice.

And ofc the famous BaekYeol hug during the exo’luxion in Manila (which I have seen live my life is complete praise the almighty Oh Sehun). U don’t even need explanations, u can just feel/see the tension if u watch the hug. But if u ain’t a shipper then u most likely won’t so mehhhh.

On a side note, I’m not forcing the idea of BaekYeol having sexual tension bet. them towards anyone. So if you’re bothered by it then just ignore this post, I don’t want to receive messages like: “BaekYeol doesn’t hav sexual tension wut r u saying cray cray shipper u gon’ make BaekYeol uncomfortable dafuq.” thank you very much.

Anyways~ thank you for sending a message darling, then tension is real right? Ughhh. I hope you were satisfied with my answer, have a good day! ^^
