Fat and Sick of the Body-Shaming Bullshit

I am sick of wearing baggy clothes to hide my full-figure.

I am sick of being forced to walk to the back of a store to find anything in my size. 

*It makes me feel like I am living in the 1950s and walking to the back of the bus  … maybe we need to boycott stores like Dr. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks.

I am sick of feeling ashamed of my stretch marks.

I am sick of being told I am “pretty for a big girl.”

I am sick of fashion brands that do not make clothes for my size.

I am sick of commercials and fashion brands that only promote thin chicks.

I am sick of fat-shamers saying “big-girls shouldn’t wear crop tops or leggings”

*Don’t tell me what the f*** to wear!!!

I am sick of ordering salads while skinny girls inhale burgers and fries.

*Don’t tell me what the f*** to eat!

I am sick of pulling my shirts down all day to hide my foopah.

I am sick of being told to “suck it in” every time I take a picture.

I am sick of feeling insecure around anyone smaller than me. 

I am sick of brands who make cute clothes for juniors and wack shit for plus-size women. 

*Really? I can’t look cute because I’m plus-size?

I am sick of hiding from mirrors because I don’t want to see my cellulite.

I am sick of wearing waist trimmers. 

*SCREAMING “THEY HURT!”

I am sick covering my stretch marks with foundation and concealer. (smdh)

I am sick of body-shaming myself out of going where I want and wearing what I want.
