And speaking of party dresses…
Whenever you put on a piece of clothing, look in the mirror, and think, “Is that MY body? GodDAMN, I want to have sex with myself!”, you need that garment in your life.
Perfect mindset for tonight’s family party, no? (Hush, there’ll be other people there.)
Earlier I wondered if I’m walking around all Bitchface McIrritable at work today because I have PMS.
And then I saw this, got viciously angry, then weepy-sad, so… that answers that.
My body image has been hovering around decent lately, so I’m pissed this got to me, but Christ, this is what *I* look like, just shorter. People are fucking awful.
But then…Hm, I still think she’s hot, so I must be hot, too.
Right, then. Done and done. Good work, Brain.

I just finished reading a book called Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls, and the author, Jes Baker, points out that you rarely see “larger” women paired with thinner men in advertising or pop culture. I hadn’t really noticed that before, but…yeah.
Generally, I’m not attracted to men who weigh less than I do. That may well be years of indoctrinated body anxiety, but I don’t want to look like I ATE my Person. Logically I know it’s not true, but I feel like I’d break a thinner man in half — I want a dude who looks like he can TAKE me, even if, again, I understand a thinner man could.
