Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”
The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.
I once had a nurse practitioner say the exact same thing as the last gif.
They hit the nail on the head every single time.
This is the most successful gifset that has come up from the show. Look at the notes, is crazy! It’s bittersweet moment, a triumph for this amazing show but the sad reflection of society’s double standards.
I went to do my daughter’s hair (condition, comb, curl, etc). It’s a regular thing and when we went to do it she said “I’m not happy with this anymore”. I asked her why and she said she was done being a girl. She hated it, and wasn’t happy. She then asked me if she could get some new clothes, boy clothes. We talked and discussed why she wanted this and what made her decide this. She said she doesn’t like girl stuff. She likes motorcycles, monster trucks, superheroes and football. So you know what we did? She and I cut her butt-length hair and went shopping. $60 later and she has a slew of new “boy” outfits.
When I asked her if she was prepared to face the kids at school that will make fun of her because they don’t understand she said “Yeah, I will tell them that I’m happy and their opinion doesn’t matter to me”.
Oh yeah…she’s 7.
Wow the support…she’s going to love this when she wakes up tomorrow. Thank you guys.
