I just saw a commercial that said “teach your kids to be more than bystanders” um how about you teach your 10 year old child not to bully other children??

I found this great blog today and had to share it :D
Refashionista is an amazing seamstress who refashions awful thrift-store finds into new clothes and some of these results are so amazing?? Check her out! :D
she is a goddess
So she’s taking plus sized clothing and making it into hipster wear for people who aren’t fat? Ok.
looks ten times better on her anyways
that is besides the point. She’s taking resources from plus sized people who likely need it more than she does. If she was really any good at her refashioning, she could use clothing that was her size(or close to it) and make her hipster monstrosities that way.
She’s not just taking plus sized clothing. She’s taking plus sized clothing for people who don’t have even have the option to buy into the monopolized world of plus size shops. I have friends who get 90% of their clothes from thrift stores. I get this is just one person, but fuck, you don’t need to be getting thrifted clothes that are more than twice your fucking size to repurpose them.
YOU ESPECIALLY DON’T NEED TO MAKE HUMILIATING CARICATURE-LIKE STANCES IN EVERY BEFORE PICTURE THAT MOCKS THE STANCE/POSTURING/AND SIMPLY THE SPACE FAT PEOPLE EXIST IN.
like how much do you have to hate fat people to do this.
As a fat person… I dont see… Anything wrong;;;;
Thrift stores are first come first serve. Thats life. If she wants to buy big clothes to repurpose, w/e. I live in thrift stores. Some days are good, some are not. Its the gamble you take.
Also if i was wearing ill fitting clothing i’d make faces too!
Also a lot of these are extremely dated anyway and were in need of a refresh. I think what she’s doing is incredibly innovative! It gives the clothing a second life. :) And other people are more than welcome to do that as well.
if you ever think about sending me an ask and decide not to cause “oh she doesn’t care” or “oh I don’t want to bother her” literally I’m the loneliest piece of shit you can find and would still love you if you sent me the word nuzzle over and over again
help me, i am trapped
