TW; FAT SHAMING


The media isn’t corrupt you say?

The media doesn’t fat shame you say?

There’s no patriarchy you say?

I don’t need feminism you say?

Who wants to guess how fun it was to see that photo of myself on a full page new york newspaper just 2 days before my BIRTHDAY?!?! (top image)

But please… tell me more about how it’s fat people just making mountains out of mole hills… and that it’s not really that bad.

“I always doubted auditioning because of my weight. I’ve always acted and pursued theater – it was something I had always wanted to do when I was young. But I felt I would be rejected because of my physical appearance. 
[Orange is the New Black] has given me the opportunity to show that I have curves and I have talent too. It’s been a battle, you know, because I’ve never been skinny. But I’ve embraced it. Now I have the opportunity to show everyone that this is sexy. I can dress in the same attire as someone else and carry myself in a sexy manner, a beautiful manner and a prideful manner. What matters is how I play the role – not my size.”
