So I was browsing clothes online, as you do, when I came across the plus size range from George at Asda.
Now I think this is new? I can’t say I’ve ever noticed them doing a specifically plus size range before, but yes.. shapeless printed shirts and leggings. Thank you Asda, this is just what the plus size clothing world needed more of.
Being fat is a choice. Its a choice that limits what kind of clothing looks good, or even fits you. The fact that people dont specifically go out of their way to cater to your choice in the exact way you would like, is not a good reason for complaint.
I chose to be fat just as much as you chose to be a complete moron. please be quiet.
1. I’d look got in a burlap sack, fact.
2. not having the same choice in clothes because of the terrible crime that is having a tummy is a perfectly good reason to complain.
Yes, you being fat is a choice. The consequences of that personal choice are yours to bear and should be tolerated. If you want to not be hindered in choice of clothing then you should consider a healthy weight.
Why would you even say you would look good in a burlap sack? Being exaggeratedly vain will not convince me that you are attractive. Confidence is not generally this aggressive or assertive when its actually genuine.
You have the exact same choice of clothes as everyone else. Your choice is not in the least way restricted, you are just not being specifically catered for because of your personal choice. You must accept the consequences of that choice.
I am poor, my choice of clothing is restricted as fuck, and being poor was not a choice so please check your privilege. If i could pull myself out of poverty just as easy as you could lose weight i would be god damn thankful. and yet i still dont complain about the fact that poor peoples clothing isn’t fashionable.
Okay don’t even talk to me about being poor and you can seriously think again in you think this is a choice for me.
I am disabled and live on benefits, just barely enough to pay the bills. ALL of my clothes are second hand, sale buys or gifts.
I’m disabled to the point that exercising enough to make any sort of difference would cripple me.
I eat less than 1,700 calories a day
You don’t know shit.
I’m not going to apologise for being pissed off that clothing for my size sucks, I’m not going to apologise for wanting to look good when it’s about all I have that actually brings me any joy.
Making myself look good makes me feel good on the inside which is super important considering I’m in constant pain.
But you already said you believe you being fat is your choice. Why would you suddenly go back on that idea?
1700 calories does not maintain an obese body. You are either defying physics or you are underestimating the amount you eat. You dont need to exercise to lose weight. Being disabled wont force you to eat more than your body needs. You are poor and on benefits but you are capable of purchasing so much food that you can maintain obesity?
You dont have to apologize for being annoyed, im just saing that expecting companies to cater to you to the extreme is very entitled and unjustified. If you cant fit into regular clothing you dont get to pretend its that companies fault that they dont make the exact clothing that you specifically like. Its not their fault, its your fault.
At what point did I say I believe this is a choice?!
Do you want to add me on myfitness pal and instagram so you can see exactly what I eat because I can promise you I’ve had one day in the past month where I’ve gone even just a little over 1700, I was on my period and pissed off so I had some ice-cream. that’s it. one ice-cream a month (not even that, I can’t afford ice-cream usually I had some vouchers and got lucky) isn’t making me fat.
I spend £50 a week on food for myself and my husband, I cook from scratch every single day. if it comes pre-made or in mix form I won’t put it in my body.
You can tell me this is my fault as much as you please but you’ve not lived my life, you don’t know my experiences.
You don’t know that I was damn near hospitalized by a diet/exercise programme that a doctor put me on, you don’t know that the reason my disability has gotten so bad is because of how much I forced myself to be active.
You don’t know that I spent years off my life trying to lose weight because I was told that it would make me healthy.
it didn’t, dieting and exercising more than my body could handle landed me using a wheelchair 90% of the time I leave the house.
I am unhealthy yes but I do not have a single weight related issue.
but yes, I am entitled to the same clothing choices as straight sized people. Being fat doesn’t make me undeserving of anything.
