I am having some epic stomach problems lately.
I can deal with a lot of various ills and pains but when something is wrong in the state of my digestion I get freaked out. I'm finally feeling better but ugh.
So right oh.
I got a random ass note about this entry from quite awhile back.
Now either this person hadn't read my blog before or something but I have been informed that the pictures there (and on my flickr) are absolute proof positive that I am "not fat at all" and should summarily be removed from all fat feeds etc.
First of all I take you way less seriously being that you did not give a name, a real email address nor did you make a comment publicly.
I do hope if you have been reading for awhile (and let me note here that I do see that you spent an awful lot of time reading here recently) let's clear up a couple of things.
You whomever you are not the arbiter of who is or isn't fat.
I don't fucking know you.
And I don't have to be fucking nice to you.
Quite frankly if you feel so strongly go complain to those who build the feeds. No go ahead I'll wait.
While you're off doing that let's get a few other things straight.
If you are going to make a visual judgment let's take a few things into account.
I am overall a kinda small person. I am 5'3" or so, short legged, I have small hands, wrists and feet, small ankles. Parts of me are built rather daintily and always have been. I have chubby little toes, chubby knees and round chubby arms.
On the other hand parts of me are built more robustly.
I have broad shoulders, large collarbones (which I will return to in a minute) and big thighs.
Now the collarbones thing.
That was one of the things you Anonymous Crabbypants pointed to as proof of just how not fat I am.
My collarbones are big. Even with probably another twenty pounds on my frame you can still make them out fairly well and when I am thinner, holy whoa collar bones.
That's just how my particular body is made.
Now as I'm looking at some pictures of myself and yeah, I'm a fatty.
Am I upset that you don't think I'm really fat?
The fact is no matter how anti smaller fatty you are, fat bodies come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
I would suggest that you get over yourself.
Now if y'all will excuse me I need to eat.
I'm also ruminating on some of the stuff Marianne and Lesley talked about on Fatcast. Go listen we'll talk about it later.
