Say "NO WAY" to ageism and fatphobia!
This is a response to a post by Ragen Chastain regarding comebacks for fatphobic bullshit.
“You’re not fat! Don’t talk about yourself like that, it makes me uncomfortable.”
My blogger handle is The Ornery Old Lady.
I had a person comment on one of my posts “you’re not old, you’re young at heart!”
I had to laugh because if there is one thing I’ve never been, it’s young at heart. I’ve had kind of a tough go of things.
Two of society’s biggest prejudices, especially when it comes to women, are age and size. I’m middle-aged and fat. And I want to know why my saying that should make anyone uncomfortable.
The Ornery Middle-Aged Lady just doesn’t have the same impact as The Ornery Old Lady, though.
