Our Children Are Colourblind (and we should ABSOLUTELY try to keep them that way).

Our Children Are Colourblind (and we should ABSOLUTELY try to keep them that way).

Sometimes when I can’t sleep, I’ll be watching YouTube videos and eventually gravitate towards some of my old favourites. This evening/early morning, it was the React videos, by the Fine Bros. After watching YouTubers react to Best Song Ever, Teens React to Blurred Lines and Kids React to The Beatles, I got to Kids React to Controversial Cheerios Commercial.

I have a domain now! And also, a video!

Greetings, Fatshion Hustlings readers!

It’s been a seriously long while, and I do apologise for that. However I can hopefully assure you all that there will be more blogging (and certainly more STRUCTURED blogging) soon, because a) I now have a beautiful domain name! And this blog can henceforth be accessed at http://www.fatshionhustlings.com, and b) Within the next few weeks, I will be starting my Marketing dissertation, which is to be on marketing in the plus-size fashion industry. Since this will hopefully ultimately be a size-ist, femininst, and other assorted -ist-y blog, what I discover in my research should be of interest.

Alternatively this blog might go viral if I start angrily reviewing the next 50-Shades-esque book to hit the market, in which case it will become more about that. But either way, more blogging will happen. Soon. And I might even change the design of this thing *looks around. is unimpressed*

Anyway, to the more exciting part! I was in a short video as part of body image awareness week last week at my university. The Women’s Officer was on the prowl for people who have experience with eating disorders, and since the camera absolutely loves me I immediately put my hand up. Even if camera-whoring hadn’t been an option, I would probably have been keen to do this, because I represent a type of eating-disorder-sufferer that is not often seen, I think. There were some other very interesting participants, I have to say. It’s well worth watching, but since eating disorders are talked about, I officially issue a trigger warning.

 

Why I’m doing Armpits4August

So we all know what Movember is, don’t we? It’s been going on for some time, they do great things, it’s really cool, etc.

So now it’s the ladies’ turn, and during the month of August some of us are going to say a fond farewell and fuck you to our razors and grow out our armpit hair and any other body hair we grow to raise money for Verity; a charity that supports people with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
