I was just going to post a quick video tonight because I’ve not been well for a couple of days (just a stupid head cold, somebody breathed their germs on me) but I came across this little bit of insanity and just had to share it.
It’s a blog post on a website called BBSize.com: Pure Fashion for Plus SizeWomen
Let’s hit you up with the link so you can go and have a look:
Ok, now you can take a few deep breaths, pick your jaw up off the ground and give yourself a good mental shake.
Can you believe it?
This is a blog that is supposed to be body positive, and all it does is post a whole pile of fat hatred, spouting how fatties should be dressing “slimming” and “flattering” and actually shames a whole bunch if innocent fatshionistas that they actually STOLE the photographs from. You heard it right – none of the women in the photographs listed as what fatties shouldn’t do in the name of fashion were asked permission to publish their photographs. Well, none that have come forward anyway, but I’m pretty sure it’s a safe bet. Not to mention that they’ve used photographs from various other catalogues and sites and there seems to be no permission on those either.
Yeah BBSize.com – fat women should be in black or navy shapeless sacks, hiding ourselves from the world because you don’t like seeing fat bodies. Fuck you BBSize.com, I say.
It would be good if you all left a comment over there stating just how wrong this kind of post is, and if any of your photos are on there, demand that they take them down and publish an apology (and know that you look fabulous, no matter what those douchebags say).
