I’ve convinced myself right in my brain that it helps to take away the pain.
It’s Monday morning and I have to go to work and try teaching English to a bunch of devil 8 year olds. I hate children so much. The more I have to deal with this creatures, the less I want to be a mother (and I really don’t want to be a mother).

It’s funny how on TOW George Stephanopoulos Ross says that he told everybody (includind his sister, who even remembered the date - 10/20) about his first time with Carol (his first time ever) and on TOW the East German Laundry Detergent, the following episode, Monica is talking to Angela in the bathroom and mentions that her brother never even told her when he lost his virginity. Oopsie.
“You’re not fat. You have fat.”
I got a lot of messages like that when I called myself fat in a selfie I posted a few days ago. I appreciate the intention, but try as I might I can’t bring myself to care about the message simply because I don’t get it. What’s so wrong with using the adjective fat? Is it so bad that we have to skirt around the truth and structure sentences so we can distance ourselves from it as much as we can?
Fat is just a word. It’s an adjective and a noun. We all have fat but not all of us are fat, which is why saying I have fat is not the same as saying I am fat. I understand that the whole ‘you have fat’ idea is trying to achieve something positive, but I think it’s also contributing to our fixation on the word fat and reinforcing the negativity we have come to associate with it. Fat is not an insult, but in the end it’s up to you if you’ll take it as one. But here’s what I suggest: If you’re fat, be comfortable with saying you’re fat because I bet Dany’s dragons that it’s not the only thing you are. You’re smart, funny, talented, brave, thoughtful, kind, loyal, and a dozen other things that having a fat body won’t change.
P.S. Anyone who thinks fat=ugly clearly hasn’t seen Rebel Wilson in leather.
