MissRepresentation

Please stop telling me I'm pretty Please stop telling me I'm fat
Please stop telling me I'm crazy Just cause I love every cat
Please stop calling me a spinster Just cause I wont lie with you
I know you'd be calling me a whore If I went home with you

Don't tell me I need protecting Don't say I need to be saved
Don't tell me I'm PMSing If your mindless ignorance sends me into a rage.

If I'm a liberated equal Just as accomplished as a man
Just as worthwhile and smart and kind and good and rational Why won't you represent me as I am?

Please stop telling me I'm lonely Cause I've never found a man
Who doesn't kneel before me Or try to keep me down
Don't try to put my value In the value of my face
Standing with your dollybirds Will never be my place

Don't assume I have a special Bond with every other woman,
That I don't get what you're saying Or understand just what you're doing
Don't tell me it's fine Cause I can fall back on my looks
I'd rather leave my husband Than ever leave my books

If I'm a liberated equal Just as accomplished as a man
Just as worthwhile and smart and kind and good and rational Why won't you represent me as I am?

The awful thing about the media the thing that makes me really pissed
Is there are millions of real women out there But they're writing about dolls when they should focus more on us.

If I'm a liberated equal Just as accomplished as a man
Just as worthwhile and smart and kind and good and rational Why won't you represent me as I am?

Fat is a feminist Issue

Das gesellschaftlich vorherrschende Schönheitsideal ist scheiße, darüber sind sich alle einig. Demzufolge dürfte es der näheren Betrachtung nicht – oder?

And it doesn't help much when my friends and family, who all know how I feel about this, continue to make anti-fat statements and bitch about how fat they feel and mention new diets they've heard about and are just dying to try. "I'm shaped like a watermelon." "Wow, I'm so happy, I now wear a size seven instead of a size nine." "I like this mirror because it makes me look thinner."

I can't understand how they could still think these things when I'm constantly talking about these issues, and I can't believe that they would think that these are okay things to talk about in front of me. And it's not like I want them to censor their conversations around me... I just want them not to think it. I know that most of this is just a reflection of how they think about themselves and isn't intended as an attack on me or an invalidation of my work, but it makes it that much harder for me. It puts all those thoughts inside me. Today I was standing outside of work and I caught a glimpse of myself in the window and thought, "Hey, I don't look that fat!" And I immediately realized how fucked up that was, but that didn't stop me from feeling more attractive because of it.

I want this out of me. This is not a part of me, and theoretically I can separate it all out and throw away the shit, but it's never really gone.
