I totally owe you an apology. I came out swinging, because anonymous usually = Shitwizard, and usually concern about the effects of weight on one’s health is the stealth bomb for trying to make someone feel bad. So, I was a jerk.
Rather than totally take over someone’s blog with what could be a really good and informative discussion, you can shoot me any questions you want at my tumblr - and that way, if Corie wants to re-blog it, she can. :)
I will say that this wasn’t the result of a few seconds of google searching to validate a pre-existing viewpoint - just as I shouldn’t have assumed you were being Jerky McJerkerson right out of the gate, please don’t assume that I was pulling information out of my posterior to rush to someone’s defense. Those are valid articles, and being someone who falls under the BMI definition of obese, I’ve worked closely with my last two doctors to approach things from the HAES (Health At Every Size) angle. And really, BMI is BS - and the assumption that skinny=happier is patently false, and actually spectacularly offensive, which had a lot to do with why I responded the way I did.
I would recommend actually going through those URL’s. There’s a lot of “food for thought”.
PS: I use the term fattie for myself, so stigma is where you find it. :)
Why don't you measure yourself and order a bra online? It's the only way you're gonna get the proper size, If you don't know the websites I do carebear.
All bras have different fits. I don’t like ordering online because even bras from the same brand can fit differently. I’ll take a trip to Minneapolis or something and go to a store that carries larger sizes.
If I took an Art class, like painting or sculpture, I would so love for you to be the model. That would be fun.
Then later on Tumblr I'd be like, "You were a great model for my class today". Just to see how you'd react to someone who you know from Tumblr got to see you in person.
I have never done anything like that. I would be nervous to be naked in front of a room full of people. All my pictures are self-shot so even having someone else take my photo can be uncomfortable.
Boobilanche is now my new favorite word thanks to "knifetoagunfight". That is what I want to be trapped under someday, not an avalanche. I could then die happy.
Someone should start a new porn genre and call it that. Consisting of men or women being covered, on a bed, by women with large breast such as yourself. I would LOVE to see that.
Lol, that is an interesting term. I’m sure porn exists like that somewhere. It’s probably just under a different name.
Ugh, tell me about it. It's near impossible to find my size, and I spent years wearing the wrong size. I'm terrified to get measured again because that means there's only one place that carries my size and they charge so much >.<
Still, it's worth it in your case. DDD is insulting to them =P
I’ll make a special trip to one of the stores I know carries larger sizes.
Yeah, the whole thing with larger bands and smaller cups is ridiculous. I'm a G/H and you look about the same size as me. Go get fitted somewhere nice =3
(Sometimes they dislike giving big cup measurements...)
I think she just wanted to sell something. The store didn’t carry anything over DDD. I would have had to order online from them to get it. I didn’t buy anything from her, I went back later. I keep meaning to get fitted again, but bras are so expensive. I need to wait until I have money to buy one. Or 3. :D
i think you might be a F or G cup. my wife is a i or H. you're not far behind in the boobilanche.
I’ll keep that in mind. Last time I went to get sized, the woman made me cry. She kept trying to push larger bands on me and making the cup smaller. She wouldn’t listen when I told her they weren’t working.
i love your pics very innocent looking face.i want to ask why do u pose nude
Thank you. I like seeing myself as desirable. Like many women, I grew up thinking I was ugly and no one liked me. I was a nerd. Guys would ask to cheat off me, but not on dates. They even asked me to dances as jokes in high school. I went to college thinking I was unattractive.
A friend introduced me to the website www.suicidegirls.com. At first I just used the site to look at pictures and use them as examples for drawing nudes. Then I started exploring the community.
There’s a group called Plus Sized Women there. It’s full of bigger girls who love themselves and post picture sets. They don’t have to be nude, but most are. I waited a while before joining them. My first few sets weren’t nude, but they received positive feedback. As time went on, I became more bold and took a little off at a time.
Now I’m pretty comfortable being naked for my pictures. I like the way they look, and I don’t think there’s a problem with being nude. I liked seeing myself differently from how I think I look. In my mind, my face isn’t pretty and my body is gross. When I see pictures of myself, I’m often surprised.
Every time someone finds something distasteful, there’s another who sees it differently. Don’t judge what someone chooses to do something just because you wouldn’t do it yourself.
see! there it is! the tits and the lip biting say, "i'm a sex goddess!" but the shifty wide eyes and the slight smirk say, "this is silly. they're all so silly."
Lol, I do bite my lip a lot. I do it in person, too. Sometimes when I smile.
From your nutritionist friend,
A few points...
1.) Why on earth did I spend all the time and money going to school when I could have done a google search like you and become an authority on the matter? Man, what was I thinking? On this lovely internet, you can find viewpoints to match any belief you may have. There are even people who will fight against the validity of dinosaurs' existence. Doesn't make them right. BMI is a staple. And it is so for a reason.
2.) Why do I care if you're a "fattie"? Well, for one, I didn't use such a derogatory term as that, but rather the scientific term of obese, and more specifically morbidly obese, which you are. But why do I care? Simply because I don't like seeing anyone hurt themselves over something as silly as overeating. You would still be perceived as attractive 50 lbs lighter, and you'd be happier and healthier too.
3.) Why ask anonymously? I don't have a tumblr account. A friend pointed me in your direction. I do have a professional page, but seeing your profanity in your response, I'm guessing your maturity is suffering almost as much as your weight. I don't need sophomoric angry emails left and right from you or your fan club.
I’m sorry if you thought my response was profane. I don’t swear so I’m not sure which part was upsetting. I did try to keep it less “smarmy” than usual, per your request.
Wait- I reread your message and realized this wasn’t directed at me, but at someone who had commented. Thanks for clarifying why I upset you enough to comment. If you want to give me advice, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. :)
you'll find out very quickly this isn't a question. i just read through your whole blog, and i really like you. you're awful neat. your face is gorgeous! it's like equal parts seductress, innocence, and kind of a sarcastic bemusement. you always have this sexy smirk on your face that makes it look like nothing's worth taking too seriously.
anyway, that's all i got. you're a cool kid.
Thanks. You made me blush and smile like an idiot. :D
You’re pedaling quackery if you’re using the BMI as a data point for determining someone’s health. And be honest: “I’m just concerned about you health” is still fat-phobic bullshit… weapons-grade bullshit, as a matter of fact.
I’ve said this elsewhere, and I’ll say it here… I often see 2 types of people hating on fatties: The type that have bought into the bullshit that it’s uniformly hideous and are starving themselves miserable trying to adhere to an unnatural body archetype, and then there are those that are attracted to fat people but can’t reconcile it against what they’ve been told all their lives - so they hate on the thing that gives them a boner of shame (and the shame is theirs, but I think you, Corie, can take credit for the boner). Really, I’d bet at least 2/3 of the anon haters out there have secretly rubbed one out while thinking of you.
And finally… anonymous? Really? Have the courage of your fucking convictions, because if you can’t stand up behind your own profession, then you don’t deserve the title.
So I've come to the conclusion that you've got probably the cutest lip bite on the interwebz. Is there a way we can harness that to take over the world? I'll share, as long as I get Paris.
Lol, I don’t know if I can share. I’ve never been to Paris. What if I love it? :D
Wow, I can't help but sound like any regular Joe when I say that you really have a yummy looking ass. The fact that I'm an ass man doesn't help here either...technically a Breast man too but you get my meaning.
thanks for finally posting another ass picture. the world needs more of them. you're delightfully thick. i'd die a happy death being smothered by that big white ass ... even if it would mean you were committing a hate crime. :)
Lol, I’ve never tried smothering anyone with it. I did read an erotic story along those lines, though. :D
that anon was a fucking moron. if you have the balls to say something like that you say it with your identity.
i don't know if it makes you feel better or not,but i think you have a great body and are very attractive :D which is why i watch you!
On a serious note, how many years do you think you've stripped off of your own life because of your own morbid obesity? I know you use the terms curvy, chubby, and full figured, but as a nutritionist, I'd guess your BMI is at least 40, probably upwards to upper 40s, making you, scientifically speaking, morbidly obese. I look forward to reading the smarmy remark you have to this.
You forgot to mention the other terms I’ve used; including fat and blubber.
How about instead of making mean, anonymous remarks, you actually submit something real? If you were concerned with my health, you could give me advice rather than poke fun at me. You have no idea what sort of lifestyle I lead.
