Fat-shaming, unfortunately, is pervasive, especially online. Fat-shamers are notorious for expressing concerns about the health of the people they shame, but we all know it’s a load of bull. How concerned are we really about the health of complete strangers?
Self-described singer-rapper song writer, Dank Demoss, challenged this viewpoint with a single, and now viral, photo and caption:
They tried to break me ! They tried to be friend me because of who I am ! They tried to drive me in sane ! They want me in that whole again !!! They want me to hate myself !!! They think I shouldn’t be here because according to their. Books I’m FAT AND IM SLOPPY ! What if i was 150 lbs and I took this picture would I get negative or positive ? What if I had the body of a goddess ? Those pple still don’t have as much confidence as I do !! I took this picture bc I want everyone to know that they are beautiful !!! Y’all have purpose ! Y’all can change the world you are great you are powerful u are smart you are intelligent MOST OF ALL YOU ARE DIFFERENT !!! I know I’m going to get a lot of negativity from my picture but I don’t. Care man !!! Because y’all will never ever take me back to that dark place again !!!

Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
