some of this is important, but mostly it's just my brain.

Is it okay to not be sexually attracted to people because they're really big? I can't work out if this makes me a bad person.

Perhaps not a bad person intentionally, but you are clearly privileged if you think you have the right to choose one body type over another. You are - without being aware of it - oppressing other body types by purposely going out of your way to not date and/or have sex with them. I know you’re probably not going to like what I’m saying, but it’s the truth. 

I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with women who are skinny, but I do have to question the attraction the men claim to have. I believe many of these men are closet homosexuals, fatophobes, and in some cases; pedophiles. i say this because, there is no way on god’s green earth, that a sane grown-ass man would want anything to do with a woman who does not have hips, ass, or tits. It’s either you think she looks like a little girl, or you think she looks like a boy. Other times men are just so hateful and afraid of big beautiful women, that they will punish themselves before admitting that we are sexy. This is really no different than if I were to not have sex with a black man, because I “didn’t find him attractive.” That’s like saying “you don’t appeal to me because you aren’t human.” Do you know how racist that is, and wrong? It’s disgusting. By choosing one person over another, for whatever reason it may be, you are insulting the oppressed. Every time you walk around town with a thin woman, you are insulting fat women. 

I think because you asked this, you are willing to change. You know that what you’re doing is wrong. I have some news for you though: We are here, we’re growing in numbers and in weight, and 10 years from now we will be the norm. Nobody except perverts, liars, and fetishists are going to want to be with skin and bones. I sincerely hope you find yourself before that happens.

By choosing one person over another, for whatever reason it may be, you are insulting the oppressed. Every time you walk around town with a thin woman, you are insulting fat women. 

*gestures helplessly*

every time you are attracted to someone, you are oppressing all the people you are not attracted to

I wanted to make a strong mother character. The portrayal of women in epic fantasy has been problematical for a long time. These books are largely written by men but women also read them in great, great numbers. And the women in fantasy tend to be very atypical women… They tend to be the woman warrior or the spunky princess who wouldn’t accept what her father lays down, and I have those archetypes in my books as well. However, with Catelyn there is something reset for the Eleanor of Aquitaine, the figure of the woman who accepted her role and functions with a narrow society and, nonetheless, achieves considerable influence and power and authority despite accepting the risks and limitations of this society. - GRRM on Catelyn Stark

To the creepy fashion blog that just followed me ( yes, you the never-ending listicle of indistinguishable, emaciated, dead-eyed young white women in white dresses ) this is how I feel about you and everything you have to offer.
