Nocturnal Animals & the metaphor of fat women.
Your Fat Friend

I live in a Texas town like most Texas towns — the vast majority of available women to date are obese yet if I prefer a woman who cares about her fitness and health, both emotionally and physically I am derided for being a fat hater. Anyone here who comments “I love my fat body” is a hypocrite because they would trade their body in a second for someone with the body of Scarlett Johansson. Being fat carries with it more than an inability to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. There are ticking time bombs of poor health, mental weakness, self-loathing, selfishness, environmental destruction and low self-esteem that are waiting to blow up in someone’s face.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
