9 Problems with Women’s Clothing
And the worst part is that clothing companies do it because they know we’ll still buy their products. But do we have much other choice?
and if you’re fat multiply these difficulties by 9000%
I hope that spiderman was daniel radcliffe
That is EXACTLY what I was thinking.
Too tall. Daniel Radcliffe is a teeny tiny thing.
when I admire the wonders of the sky, my soul expands. clouds come floating into my life, no longer to just carry rain or bring storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. experiencing life on this planet is beautiful and I’m just happy to be chosen to be here.

One day a GIANT stick bug fell out of my roof. How cool is that?! It climbed right back up the wall, except for a brief stint where I tried to pick it up. Did you know stick bugs have wings? I did not, and it sure did give me a start! They can’t really fly as their wings are disproportionately small to their bodies but it does let them glide or rather fall gracefully from predators or overly curious Peace Corps volunteers. After that I left it alone and it is probably still living in my roof. I mean, I can’t tell since it’s a stick bug and my roof is made of sticks but I don’t see why it would want to leave.
OH MAN, WHAT IF MY ROOF IS REALLY JUST MADE OF STICK BUGS AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW? Definitely a possibility.

"By far, one of the best scenes in the book is where Kaling writes about the photo shoot she and Office co-star Ellie Kemper did for People’s Most Beautiful issue. When the stylist brought a trailer full of size zero gowns, Kaling found herself crying in the children’s bathroom of the public school where the photo shoot was happening. In the bathroom stall, she discovered a smear of what looked like excrement and a child’s graffiti: “This school is bulls–t!” which made her a) laugh and b) demand that the stylist alter one of the gowns to fit her. In the end photo, she’s smiling in a gorgeous fuchsia dress that the stylist had to rip down the back and alter with canvas. Looking at beautiful Kaling, though, you’d never know. It’s a sweet moment of chubby girl victory.” (via afterellen)
This is the story that truly made her my hero.
Here’s the thing: why the FUCK would a stylist- who, on a shoot like this, would obviously be considered a “professional”- ONLY bring tiny-sized gowns?
Does this happen all the time? Seriously? Like… do they just not MAKE gowns that-
Time and time again, we know, we’re told, upscale designers actually ADMIT and are PROUD of the fact that they don’t make gowns for “plus-sized” women.
Mindy Kaling had to have the gown she wanted ripped down the back with canvas tacked onto it AT HER OWN FUCKING PHOTO SHOOT.
Melissa fucking McCarthy couldn’t find a SINGLE designer to fit her for a gown at her own fucking Oscars ceremony.
Hell, I can’t even decently priced off-the-rack REGULAR FUCKING CLOTHES that don’t look something my grandma would wear on a Norwegian cruiseliner.
Because apparently “fat” people don’t deserve to take pride in how they look.
And I actually AM fat. Mindy Kaling ISN’T EVEN.
This! This! ALLLLLLLLL of this!
One of my favorite things on TV is watching Tim Gunn berate the designers on Project Runway when they have the real person challenge and the designers complain about the clients size.
