I am not a very large woman (US Size 6) so I can’t say I’ve experienced the same type of issues I frequently see on here. However, the disturbing issue where people comment on the weight of strangers… I don’t get it.
When I was in college and a bit smaller (US Size 3) I had a number of occasions when larger people would make jokes about my weight. At my current size I’m thick enough where that doesn’t happen anymore, but it is just as hurtful and offensive to say I’m sick with an eating disorder when it is obvious that I don’t have one. People need to stop worrying about what other people look like.
We can insert all the commentary we want about “it’s bad for you” to be fat. If we do, we also have to say the same about smoking, fiber intake, alcohol consumption, etc… there are lots of things that make people less healthy than our (mostly) imaginary ideal. I don’t think I get why the weight issue seems to predominate our perception of health. Why do some people get so personally offended at the way others look?
My boyfriend and I have talked about baby names for our kids..
Boy: Gabriel, Isaac,Noah
Female : Apollonia, Penelope
I like them. Your daughter should be a Greek goddess or something.
Beautiful names. I’ve always loved the name Noah, but the obvious religious connotations put me off :-(. But Apollonia- how cool is that! Great choice!
I recently stumbled on your blog and fell in love. You mention women having centaur bodies and it instantly made me think of this picture:
I thought you might enjoy it. :)
That’s actually really pretty. :) Centaur women done right!
