A Taste Of Their Own Medicine, a poem by Autumn Stanislawski
The message of the fashion industry was loud and clear, Why should I, a fat person wish to have nice clothes? Or how dare I have the audacity to want to feel confident and beautiful in them.
Has anyone else noticed this weird trend of brands' “fat-washing”? The amount of times I’ve seen an ad featuring a plus size person, or advertising inclusive sizing only to disappointedly find out they barely offer a size 20 is getting silly.
“You just won’t get it unless you are fat”. This phrase many have repeated for a number of reasons, usually when trying to explain how important it is that size inclusivity exists.
