“Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls” except for me

My favorite line was, “Fat is not a bad word… it’s an adjective.  It’s a benign descriptor of size.  Saying, ‘I’m fat’ is and should be like saying, ‘my shoes are black,’ ‘the clouds are fluffy,’ and ‘Bob Saget is tall.'”

Uh not quite. It’s more like saying, “Your shirt is the color of dogshit.”  Sure, it’s just a fact, describing something as it is.  But it also means your shirt is fucking gross.

I also don’t think diabetes and heart disease care that you’re not ashamed of your body. As Jerry said, “That’s your problem. You should be.”
