I love Ellen <3
… I love Ellen, but that kind of hurt. I am stuck with wearing double 0 for all my life. When I was a kid we had to place pins or ask my grandmother to fix shirts or pants because no matter what they where to big. I have a high metabolism, I eat three meals a day with snacks in between. I am always eating.
I finally manage to get to size 0, does that mean that I am no one still?
Oh look, one of the rare things I take major issue with. Seriously, almost every day I see posts, messages, pictures, posters, whatever about how being a large person does not make someone unhealthy, that they should feel comfortable in their bodies, have confidence, etc. But as soon that someone’s a size 0 oh boy, there’s no way they’re healthy, they must be starving, they should eat some fast food, the list goes on. The ones that bothers me the most are the assumptions that they’re anorexic or bulimic. It really hurts me to know that people like Steph, my best friend, have to put up with all these assumptions because it’s ‘okay’ to assume all these things. Please people, remember that there are some people out there that can’t help being small just like there’s some people out there who can’t help being big. Making fun of, disrespecting, and making assumptions about either of them ain’t cool.
Yeah this was kind of a tangent from the original gif set but hey, seriously this shit ain’t cool. :I
Maybe it’s just me, but I think the thing that’s ridiculous (and what Ellen is making fun of) isn’t the size you are, but the fact that they call it “size 0”. That to me doesn’t make sense. Like, I dunno, maybe update your sizing conventions a bit so people fall into sizes 1 and above?
