Some of you might saw it on Twitter or on Fat-Nurse's blog, there has been an issue with an fat-hating group on facebook and some pictures of her and also myself. She twittered about finding a picture of her at the group called: Save the planet from fat girls in leggings . I browsed through the pictures and suddenly was speechless and shocked. My mum was in the room too and she looked at me. I felt like someone had hit my in the face and tears came to my eyes immediately. I began to cry and said: "OMG I just found a picture of me in a facebook group!"
I cried for about 2 or 3 minutes, and ask my mum and myself how people can be so cruel and stupid. Than I realised that in this moment one of my greatest fears came true. And actually it hasn't changed anything in my live. Of cause it made me feel bad for a moment, but actually if you just forget for a moment how unbelievable cruel and disgusting the whole group is, it doesn't impact my life in any way. It doesn't matter at all if somewhere in this huge universe some people with the IQ of a untoasted slice of toast think that I shouldn't wear leggings, loose 15kg to look good or aren't allowed to wear flat peep toes, cause that is something fat girls should never, ever to (WTF??).
Of cause I thought about reporting it, getting angry with the one who founded the group, the girl who I doesn't know, posted the picture to their group and to tell all the people that they should fuck themselves. But than I decided that this actually is what they would like to see, that I feel hurt by their behavior. So I turned around, entered the group, shared my pictured in their group on my profil so everyone I am friends with sees how stupid some others are, I also commented under the pictured and thanked all the one who left quite nice comments about how cute I am and told everyone else to go and fuck themselves.
Yes groups like this are disgusting, mean and more than just stupid. They are degrading. It doesn't matter if it is a group about how much someones hates fat girls, red hairs, people with glasses, short ones, tall ones , black ones or everyone who believes in jesus. It is always a sign of how unsure people who subscribe to groups like this, are about themselves. On one hand I think groups like this should be reported and closed, they are so hateful and put a huge pressure on people. On the other hand I would love if every girl of the fatshion community enters a group like this is spams so many pictures of herself in leggings and tights that people will die because of their overload of hate they will feel when they see it.
I believe that being against something never leads to a satisfied solution. I also believe that hate just attracts more hate. So hate of anti-fat people attracts the hate of fat people what attracts the hate of anti-fat people again. Somewhen this circle has to be stopped. So I don't hate the people who put up a picture about me. I forgive them for being so poor and stupid and I just hope that some day they will see what is going wrong in their head.
We should stand up and be proud, we should say out loud what we want and not what we hate. We should just spread love and tolerance. I really think that everything you fear is coming to you sooner or later and that is what just happened to me. So if the 60.000 people of this anti-fat-girls-in-leggins groups fears the most that more fat girls wear leggings, we should just fulfill their fear and show them who fucking awesome we look in it!
And now something totally different: A snapshot of my new hair color <3 yay!
