finally am able to make myself go to the doctor for some x rays, and what do I get? a 25 (possibly 30, depending on if they do bill me for two useless ace bandages) dollar fat-shaming, terrorizing speech on how I’m not going to live a full life. fuck the entire world.
OK. it’s now 4:30 AM and i’m sufficiently stalked all of my ex’s tumblrs so i should probably start my laundry and get some life stuff goin.
its like 4AM and I’ve done nothing but watch two episodes of the fosters one episode of my mad fat diary and made a grocery list for spring break
another sunday night of staying up too late avoiding stuff only to probably miss class the next morning.
HEY! do you love hermione granger? are you pissed at jk rowling for that interview? do you think hermione deserves better than ron OR harry? if you write fanfic or want to write fanfic where hermione ends up with anyone but harry or ron, especially if she ends up in a queer relationship or alone, please consider submitting to my new zine “hermione granger deserves better.” i’m working on a really good hermione/ginny fic which will be the main part of issue 1. my email is strongstrawberry @ gmail.com (no spaces obvi) and you can send submissions there, just include “hermione” in the subject line.
ETA: if your submission includes anything racist, sexist, homophobic, ableist, classist, etc, except as an example of a bad thing to do (ie: the antagonist of your story) we/i refuse the right not to include it or explain to you why i didn’t, SORRYNOTSORRY
what i want: a southern gothic narrative about queer witches
You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in.
Retta finally getting her much deserved picture in the opening credits:
i dont think you fucking understand. my mad fat diary is not for you, skinny bbs. it is not for you, chubby bbs. i don’t care if we all have body issues i don’t care if you identify with rae because you have/had a bad relationship with food i don’t care i dont care this one’s for fat girls girls who cant hide but feel hidden girls who cant fit into booths girls who understand that literally every single interaction that they have with any other human being is different and altered because they are fat and sometimes they are nothing else and i’m so
of seeing these people on facebook twitter tumblr talking about how wonderful earth shattering life changing hits-so-close-to-home my mad fat diary is who walk around my campus knowing that people will smile back people will respect them on principle they have options they can walk to the back of the classroom without everyone they pass rolling their eyes they can sit next to a friend without feeling like a mountain sit in a desk and feel comfortable enough to learn
these people, my friends, talking about how they identify with rae,
how similar they feel,
and i just want to shake them and make sure they know that they will never know what its like to have their body be public domain, they will never understand the heavy mental armor required to exist as a fat person in this society, they will never understand what fat girls do because they aren’t.
my mad fat diary is for fat girls. that’s it.
