Please let it be known that “you look better without all that makeup on” is not a compliment. Why you may ask? Because I don’t wear makeup so I can look better in your eyes because Lord knows someone else will turn around and say that I look like a goat without makeup. So really, #idgaf, #IDoWhatIWant. I wear makeup because I love it, it’s my art, it’s how I express myself. If you want to tell me that you think I have a lot of natural beauty, say exactly that. But I don’t put this shit on for anybody and I sure as hell am not gonna take it off for anyone either.

Where are the Disney Channel Original movies like this? It seems like Disney Channel is gong WAY backwards. The Cheetah girls, especially the first one, was all about girl power and making your dreams come true. It was about not depending on guys but on your sisters and not letting anyone equate female to inferiority. Songs like “Girl Power” and “Cinderella” with lyrics like “At times life may get you down but you better hold your frown, can’t nobody live your life but you. Stay true to who you are and always follow your heart.” And, “I can slay my own dragons, I can dream my own dreams, my night in shining armor is me, so I’m gonna set me free!” The song Cinderella is actually the very first thing that made me question the message of all the Disney Princess movies I loved (which is why I moved on to Mulan). Now Disney’s latest original movie was called “Zapped” and it was about an app that could control boys, not kidding. And Disney has one on the way called “How to Build a Better Boy”. Really? Not only are these movies teaching girls that their whole lives should revolve around boys, they’re also full of misandry. Usually in movies with female leads we don’t focus on the depiction of men (or boys as the case may be) but the idea of masculinity they had was rude, dirty, and stupid basically which isn’t fair to guys either, and I imagine that’s the reason why Disney wants to teach pre - adolescents how to build a “better” boy. It’s madness really. Girls need to have aspirations outside of a relationships and popularity and boys need to have depth to be given credit for being capable human beings. Bring back movies like the Cheetah Girls otherwise my kids will never watch Disney ever cause this shit is poison.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I’m a body positive activist, which means I’m anti body-shaming, not just anti fat-shaming. Although fat is used both in the literal sense and for my metaphor, SKINNY/THIN IS ONLY USED METAPHORICALLY, by no means am I trying to skinny-shame anyone. A fat girl is any girl who makes her presence known and dares to take up space in a society that claims they have no room for her. Hope you enjoy it.

The with problem fat girls is that

They are so angry

So maybe you’ll bone a fat girl

But you’ll marry the tiny one

She doesn’t have a side of the bed

She has a corner  

She doesn’t take up space 

So it’s easier to own her

The problem with fat girls is that

They are so angry

And maybe it’s got nothing to with categorizing girls as fat and pretty…

But thin girls are nice

And they fit so perfectly on your arm

Instead of walking on their own two feet

You can carry them like a purse

You’re a bracelet, she’s a charm     

The problem with fat girls is that

They are so angry…and loud

Have you ever heard a fat girl walk into a room? 

Her thighs touch

They rub together creating the heat that sparks the fire of a revolution

Every time her feet touch the ground

Each pound settles like a scream

And you all turn around and look  

And you think those screams are a skinny girl trying to get out

When in fact it’s the skinny girl she’s trying to keep in

The skinny girl that enters the room like the wind

And gracefully takes her place in her designate space

But a fat girl has no place

A fat girl decides where and when and how

She’s going to take up space

She’s going to take up space

The problem with fat girls is that

They are so damn angry

Because everyone keeps saying society is a mirror

But society is not her reflection

Society is a projection

Of ages and ages of male-dominated oppression     

That keeps women in their cages

So they can store us where they please

In tiny, dark, cramped spaces 

But a fat girl has the key

And she’s dared to grow out

And she’s dared to speak up

Her rolls jiggle like a shout

While you’re still caught in a bout of anxiety, 

Wondering, trying to figure out

How it got so far out of your control

And where you will put her now

At fat girl is angry     

Because every time she hears you obsessing over the inches of her waist

She hears “Woman, how dare you take up space?”  

Yes she’s fat, she’s wide

Too wide for your narrow mind  

Too wide to hide behind the overbearing shadow of this patriarchal reprise

To wide to fall into the cracks of your fragile male ego 

Too heavy to be the balloon that goes wherever the wind blows

She stepped on the scale and broke the status quo

She’s too fat

Too thick

Too wide

Too heavy

Too angry

To be denied

The pride she’s able to find

In daring to take up space
