When news of Usher’s latest accuser broke, and her picture was circulated across social media, it didn’t take long for people to start criticizing her appearance and expressing disbelief that Usher would ever have sex with her.
I am always baffled by people who believe fat women are incapable of finding willing sex partners. It is the weirdest thing. I wrote about my feelings on the issue for The Root.
Every day, no matter what topic I am writing about or discussing, it is inevitable that detractors will come along and try to fight me. They realize very quickly that they are not going to be able to successfully argue with me on the merits of my points, so when all else fails, they fall into fat insults. It happens every time.Never mind that in my profile on every social network and here on Kinja, I am wearing a shirt that proclaims my chubby physique proudly. Never mind that I’m actually mostly just top heavy with a pudgy belly. Never mind that they know nothing about my personal physical health; they want to attack it every time. I am used to it by now; it’s par for the course.
