Why Mermaid Girl Was Awesome

It's been a few days, and I'm finally ready to talk about this. Mermaid Girl was a personal hero of mine. She was so brave, funny, and inspiring. Mermaid Girl was in one word: awesome.

  • She was wise beyond her years

    My favorite Shiloh-ism: "Some people are short, some people are tall, some people have two legs and I don't."

  • She didn't have a vagina/rectum

    How many people can say that?

  • She was a bitch to Oprah

    Shiloh never let "the fame" get to her.

  • Her smile lit up the room


  • She had spunk

    Yeah, girl! Preach.

  • Her TLC Specials Were The BEST

    If you haven't seen both Mermaid Girl specials, GET ON IT.

  • She didn't let her disability get her down

    "It feels pretty good."

  • She was a mermaid, duh

    And damn proud of it!
