The Everyday Abuse You Endure as a Fat Woman
Aly Semigran

I needed this so much. This past week has been especially bad with regards to people making comments and giving unwarranted ‘advice’ on how I can lose weight. I don’t know whether it is something to do with the couple of days of summer (the bane of my existence) we have been allowed in London this week or because in the heat my weight is ever more noticeable but I am so sick of it. Sick of making excuses and apologising for my body. How is it fair that people make comments about my skirt that sits just above my knee being short but a thin girl wearing a see-through top that exposes her entire bra and stomach is completely OK and passes by without comment?
