Ragen wrote about something that is very very pertinent to a lot of fat women (well, she often does that :) I am talking here about being invisible.
It is rather ironic. I mean, there are 69 inches of me, and a fair amount of body on them. How could I possibly be invisible?
And yet that is what seems to happen. Especially lately. Maybe it also has to do with the fact that I am growing older. In that case, it is sort of a relief. I really don't need people commenting on my body as if they have the right to do so.
But I have a theory about this. I think that because so many people use the net a lot, they tend to click on and register mentally either people who look like them or people they would like to look like. Confirmation of identity. And at least for now, older fat women just don't cut it.
In any case, in FatLand, no citizen goes unnoticed or turns invisible. DAMN IT, I wish FatLand really existed. Besides being fat in peace and harmony, people of all ages co-exist in harmony.
What a blessed idea and what a blessed realm...
