How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!
Um, yes. I will be doing this.
Yes. I support this movement!!!!!
Ah yes, the German floofkätzchen bier.
Very light and refreshing, a good summer beer.
Basically it and the related starseed/star child bullshit (and crystal children which I think is just a synonym for starseed) started with parents who were unable to accept that their child was mentally ill or neuroatypical (Indigo is usually ADD or depression, starseed is generally autism). So they started claiming that they aren’t MI/NA, they’re just SPECIAL and not of this world. And then you get the special snowflake teens who subscribe to it because “my mommy said I was special”. Indigos usually claim to be “old souls” and generally the starseed claim is alien babies. Yeah.
Anyway the problems are
- obviously an inherently unhealthy claim
- parents (and the people themselves) use it as an excuse to not seek out psychological treatment because “there’s nothing wrong with them they’re just SPECIAL”
- it regularly outright denies the existence of mental illnesses or autism and instead claims they’re just misdiagnosed and they’re really indigo children
- it’s fucking idiotic
The fact that this started with dingbat PARENTS preventing their children from getting good medical care is what really shocks me. Making up a special snowflake story about yourself is one thing, but doing that to your KID…geez, people.
Why do people think that when a guy puts on a skirt and gets long hair, they are automatically a girl? The lack of intelligence of some people is just baffling. Have they never heard of chromosomes? It’s basic biology, people. If you were born with a dick, you will always be a guy, no exceptions. That too hard to understand?
"Too hard to understand" seems like the wrong term. It’s obviously very easy to understand, but that doesn’t make it right. I think the problem is that reality is more complicated — and "too hard to understand".
I’ll give you a starting hint: “Chromosomes” and “born with a dick” are two separate things. XY chromosomes do not imply “born with a dick”. If you’re going to assert that there is one utterly unambiguous, simple, test of whether someone is male or not, you are going to need to pick which one it is. And whichever answer you pick, other people who want the world to be simple will have picked the other one, and will think you are wrong, and ask you whether their simplistic answer is “too hard to understand”.
I think that all the female athletes who were forced to have internal testicles removed or otherwise undergo surgery or hormone treatments before they could return to competition, because they had XY chromosomes, might want to have a few words with the OP…

uuuugh, skye no. get off the libertarian, he’s not good enough for you.
On a side note I do really like the how the MCU’s stance seems to be “government spying is evil, but some secrets exist for a reason. And sometimes that reason is so they can’t be exploited by douchebag libertarians.”
The bad guy from the gravity example is a good example of what I’m talking about. Fuck that guy.
