‘“Fat” is usually the first insult a girl throws at another girl when she wants to hurt her
I mean, is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me; but then, you might retort, what do I know about the pressure to be skinny? I’m not in the business of being judged on my looks, what with being a writer and earning my living by using my brain…
I went to the British Book Awards that evening. After the award ceremony I bumped into a woman I hadn’t seen for nearly three years. The first thing she said to me? ‘You’ve lost a lot of weight since the last time I saw you!’
‘Well,’ I said, slightly nonplussed, ‘the last time you saw me I’d just had a baby.’
What I felt like saying was, ‘I’ve produced my third child and my sixth novel since I last saw you. Aren’t either of those things more important, more interesting, than my size?’ But no – my waist looked smaller! Forget the kid and the book: finally, something to celebrate!
I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons.
Screw High School… Ya I don’t look like a model and may not be the most beautiful girl on the planet, I may be smart and actually interested in getting good grades and ya maybe I’m not in the “in” crowd but that doesn’t give you a fucken right to be an asswipe. Get over yourself.
All you who think that it’s funny to play “rape” tag it’s not. It’s not funny to joke about something so serious as rape. It honestly pisses me off. People who do that are being inconsiderate for a few reasons. One: because for all they know, someone who actually has been raped in real life and been a victim could be right there hearing you call out “Let’s play rape tag!” or “Now it’s my turn to rape you” and Two: That is being disrespectful. Rape is by definition: The crime, committed by a man or woman, of forcing another person to have sexual intercourse with him or her, esp. by the threat or use of violence. So explain to me how this is funny because I don’t understand how you can joke about something so serious. If you were raped you would understand it’s not something that you would joke about. Can someone please try to explain to me how this game came to be and why so many think it’s funny? For the United States it is shown that roughly 84,767 people are raped a year. Only five percent of those rapists see jail. 778,901 are assaulted (aggravate). 1,246,248 are Violent. This was taken last year 2010 and these crimes are continuing to grow. Are you laughing now?
I want to swim away but don’t know how Sometimes it feels just like I’m falling in the ocean Let the waves up take me down Let the hurricane set in motion… yeah Let the rain of what I feel right now…come down … Let the rain come down
