I was reading that post earlier today about this woman (who’s like a size 2 or whatever) who goes to op-shops and buys cheap “ugly” (aka fat people’s) clothes and “re-fashions” them to fit her. If you haven’t seen the post yet I’m sure you will soon!  I’m on board with the whole sustainable reduce/reuse shit but there are literally thousands and thousands of options for thin people to buy clothes, and op shops are full to the brim with clothes in smaller sizes.  Many fat people struggle to find nice/cheap clothes as it is (especially in second hand stores), we don’t need thin people buying us out of the few options we have! Anyways after reading this I angrily went op-shopping and bought every thin-person piece of clothing that I could see potential in. Tonight I successfully fat-hacked this size 10 ~vintage~ dress (from the 80’s) and I hope some thin people get mad when I start buying all the good clothes in their sizes and destroying them

Here for this.

THANK JESUS SOMEONE ELSE UNDERSTANDS MY RIGHTEOUS FURY OVER THIS MOVEMENT DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS FOR ME TO FIND GOOD CLOTHES AT THRIFT STORES EVEN LIKE STOP JUST STOP BUY THINGS CLOSE TO YOUR SIZE CHRIST
also I’m going to start fat-hacking clothes

and while we’re on the topic: if you’re thin, please stop buying plus size sweaters because you think it’s more ~*~ fashionable~*~ to wear sweaters that are baggy on you. it’s not cute and we don’t appreciate it, plus they literally already make “baggy” sweaters for thin people

Literally why the fuck do you care what other people wear?If you want to buy clothes and change them around to suit you better, more power to you. But stop telling people what or what not to wear because you don’t like it. It’s NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

^^^^^ that. it does not directly harm you. seriously, stop shaming people for doing what they like, it’s not cool at all.

It’s not shaming people for doing what they like, it’s getting fed up with there already being a small amount of clothes in our sizes and then other people - who already have an abundance of clothes in their sizes - going and buying them.
If you don’t see how irritating that is then you’ve obviously never have had to go to special stores just to fine clothes in your size.

K so I am like a size -00 and I can’t go into a thrift store and buy something that is going to probably be way to big for me and tailor it? That’s fucking dummmb sorrrrry

… like…. just don’t buy like XL and upwards?? pls go shopping with a plus size friend and see the annoyance/disappointment or just like… idk talk to a plus size friend… idk like maybe also have some empathy idk idk

Seriously, especially if you live in a place where clothing size XL or above is relatively scarce or are shopping somewhere that stocks comparatively little clothing in larger sizes, please don’t do this! You have SO MANY CHEAP CLOTHING OPTIONS- as a person who used to be a 8/10/12 and is now more like 18/20/22, I could sometimes cry about how much easier it was for me to find cute clothing that fit and made me feel comfortable.
Some of this is because I live in New York, which is a particularly rough place to be a fat person, and I know other places have less scarcity of quality second-hand plus-sized clothing, and if you live in one of those places, maybe this isn’t as urgent?
But at the very least, like, before you buy some clothing made for a fat person, consider if it’s something hard to find (say, vintage, higher-end, goth/punk/subcultural, or formal/professional clothing) or not before you grab it; if so, leave it on the rack and maybe come back to visit it a couple of times, or text your friends who might be able to get use out of it about it? Be generous when thrifting, there’s definitely going to be somebody else who needs any given item at least as much as you do!

Yalith told me last night that the pajama pants I wore out to dinner & errands with her (because I was like, fuck it, it’s after 9pm & I’m in pain & also cold & this cute skirt isn’t cutting it for warmth/comfort) looked not only like actual legit pants, but like actual legit *fancy* pants.

This is very dangerous.

Because basically 50% of my fashion is:
- LQQKZ
- Let’s get ready to look SOOO GOOOD!
(Frankly, if I am trying to impress, bang, &/or date you, I am way more likely to BRING IT with the fashion.)

But the other 50% is:
- Cripple femme who just rolled outta bed & eschews bras, anything tight, anything uncomfortable, & any garment that requires a lot of adjusting.

Here’s hoping my lqqkz don’t suffer as a result of this dangerous information.
This outfit, though!

This outfit, though!

FAT MERMAID DRESS: NEED!

nemesissy:

That feeling when you come up with a killer outfit, miss the occasion you were originally going to wear it on, and then when you try and work out how to make it day-wearable, you realise that that’s not possible, because jfc, the street hassle will be so intense

Like, how do you queens who don’t live in parts of cities where hardly anyone gives a fuck what you wear and are not continually zonked-out on various substances manage?

Because my outfit game is so much better in the safety of my own home than when I go out, and that’s because the amount of street hassle, both good-natured and otherwise, that I get when not in the Village or something is just too much to handle for a nice stroll around town.

oh, do i KNOW this feel! and i live in a place where people largely don’t give a fuck what other people wear. (less so than in new york, though, i think. the utter daringness and attention to detail in a lot of peoples’ fashion in nyc continually astounds/inspires me. i thought the bay area was a lqqkz-conscious place, but whenever i visit nyc i’m like DAMN, EVERYONE’S OUTFIT IS SO PUT TOGETHER. i’m not sure what it is. that y’all have harsher weather? that a combo of baby boomers & schlubby tech industry dudes means the slacker look is for some reason perpetually “in” in sf? i dunno!)

any way: i am a fan of things like baggy pants + a hoodie over an outfit, or just a giant-ass coat over an outfit when it is cold. or a baggy/less slutty dress (or a shirt, sometimes, if i’m showing a lot of tit but maybe not a lot of gam or ass) worn over a slutty dress.

but mostly, honestly, i just accept that a certain amount of street harrassment comes with the territory of being me & dressing the way i do.

if i was skinnier and i didn’t (mostly) walk with a cane, i would probably get way less shit. or, like, i’m sure i’d get street harrassment, but i am venturing to guess it’d be of the “hey baby nice tits wanna fuck?” variety versus the “FAT SLUT FAT SLUT FAT SLUT!” variety. being Out In Public & Interacting With Strangers is generally about a 40/60 split btwn each of those categories, respectively. which can suck, but also, being white and usually being able to pass as cis (unless i am dressed in an esp. genderfucky way) and being able to pass as middle-class and also being on the smaller end of fat/chubby (and hence, often though not always basically being perceived as The Nice White Lady) also mitigates it.

frankly, how much i am on the town council also has an impact. like, some days i feel like i can slut strut all around the damn city (and i usually still get harrassed, but for whatever reason, it just doesn’t get to me as much). and other days i’m like “god, i feel like i have no skin and i can’t handle the outside world hating me for existing right now, so if i go out, i’m gonna show less of my body.”

for me, it’s always a bit of a dance between my pride and my desire and my fear, and how much energy i have to hustle with street hassle. there’s no perfect or simple or out-the-box way to do it, is my point.

scores from erranding

  • $6 purple boxer briefs with a white band. adorable & super-comfortable. i usually have bad luck with underwear “for men,” so i am extremely pleased about this find. (and now i know where to find cute boxer briefs that actually fit my hips & ass, woo!)
  • a fuzzy fuchsia bathrobe that might as well be labelled GINA ROBE FOR GINAS ONLY. it is basically what The Dude from The Big Lebowski would wear if The Dude was a drag queen? also it is my first bathrobe in a decade. i am probably over-excited about this.
  • new drinking glasses & new plates & 2 shot glasses, a dollar each.

Ivy: That is a fucking awesome outfit! I love everything about it!
Me: Thank you, it’s an experiment for me? I feel like it’s kinda Faggot Hustler Meets Liza Minelli in Cabaret?
Ivy: Oh, WORD!
Me: The bowtie isn’t bad?
Ivy: Are you kidding? The bowtie is amazing!
Me: No, I just feel like bowties flag TRANSMASCULINE DOUCHEBAG like 98% of the time, and I am trying to avoid that…
Ivy: No, I know what you mean, but it’s just so… you. Also, it’s really femme. And like, how do I say this? It’s silly, but it’s silly in a great way.
Me: Ha! It’s silly in a way that is aware of its silliness!

BOYCOTT FOREVER 21Retail company Forever 21 sent this letter to all full time/non-management employees informing them that they will be demoted to part time, they and their families will lose their health and dental benefits, and they will no longer qualify for paid time off. Employees believe the company is punishing them to retaliate against Obamacare.We were asked to share this by one of our fans, and now we are asking you to do the same. Don’t underestimate the power of your SHARE. Two weeks ago, US Uncut was the first place to widely publish McDonald’s now notorious budget, and it went viral across mainstream media. Thank you.MAKE IT VIRAL 

Not that most corporations aren’t evil, but dang. I pretty much only get my (new) clothes from the Forever 21 plus section & clothing swaps, so this makes me especially grumpy.

Not pictured because taking photobooth pix of an outfit head-to-toe is surprisingly difficult in a tiny office: Black lace tights & beloved pink Docs.
