Here Are The Reasons Why Plus-Size Women Don't Care That You Think We're Fat

Because you don't fucking know me.

1. Because you don't know us.

We could have a thyroid condition. We could have an autoimmune illness that makes it difficult to get out of bed and require the use of steroids that can cause weight gain. Or we could just love to eat. The point is, you don't know what it is we're going through, so saying "you're fat and need to lose weight" is really not helping anything.

4. Because you keep going and going and...going.

OK, you're worried about us — thank you! If we politely say everything's good and we're feeling solid at this weight, why do you keep pestering us about it? Let it goooooooo.

9. Because every time you say "But skinny people have it worse," a baby penguin dies.

Can we just agree that it's shitty to talk about someone else's weight no matter if they're "too small" or "too big"? Can't we just... be?

10. And because you say plus-size women being comfortable with their bodies "glorifies" obesity. Seriously, why do people feel the need to say this?

What if plus-size women loving themselves just meant that it was OK to feel wanted, beautiful, confident, strong, in your own skin — no matter your size?

12. Because if you were actually worried about us, you would respect the fact that we get pissed off and hurt when you make comments about our weight.

13. Because it's so easy to say that we're being oversensitive or if we're upset about people's comments, we should just "lose the weight."

OR people could treat us well enough to try and not hurt our feelings and then blame us for being upset?
