As fat women, we're forced to develop a thick skin because people already feel that it's their right to say anything to us.We're tough enough to handle it, but some men's egos are just too fragile, and they crumble.MANY years before I got together with my boyfriend, I had a sex thing with this guy that I thought was relationship-material.
You're not only datable, you're loveable, and worthy of being treated with respect and love.
I regret not standing up for myself when I discovered that the athletic guy was only using me for sex.
Fat women are just as hot and sexually gifted as women of other shapes, sizes, and abilities.
Being fat doesn't mean we're so hungry for attention that we'll put our own needs aside and do whatever we can to rock your world.
But at least I learned, as we all should learn, that I'm responsible for being my biggest advocate and to never accepting anything less than what I need.

If you're with someone who doesn't make you feel beautiful or who isn't proud to have you on their arm, you need to dump their a**.
Being alone is far better than compromising on what you deserve or being made to feel as if you're someone's big dirty secret.
He needed to keep our relationship on the down low so that no one would ever suspect that he enjoyed spending time with me … He was super fit, so obviously that's the kind of woman that he wanted to be associated with, the kind he could be seen with at the Indian place.
When I realised that he was ashamed of being seen with me, I felt as if I had been punched in the stomach - a place where much of my pain already resided.
I had hoped that now, in this day and age of body positivity and acceptance, that men no longer need to hide their desires, and that being labelled as someone who likes fat women isn't the worst thing in the world. Recently, Model and Fat Activist Tess Holliday posted on Instagram, "Y'all wanna have sex with a fat girl AND enjoy it … BUT YALL DON'T WANNA DATE A Fat woman." With over 1100 comments, Tess's followers confirmed that the bigotry, misogyny, and fear of fat-shaming by association was still happening.
