Look at me really look at me I bet that 9/10 of you hate me don’t like me or are disgusted by me. Society has taught you and everyone to hate fat people simply like that as of begin a queer Xicano isn’t hard enough in the gay community try adding a few 100 pounds to the problem. The media has not only brainwashed you to believe that all gay men are white and young, but that we have these artificial bodies with six pack abs and muscles that grow on muscles, truth is we are not because of societies fat hate towards me I grow up hating my body. Although my family never focused on body image, I did they told me that people are all made up of different shape sizes and colors.
Dating was hard every gay men even gay men of color expect that gay men society came up, with until one day I meet this guy on an online website we talked for days and weeks he lived in pueblo and I in Denver he told me that he liked me and couldn’t wait to hold me and have me in his arms finally I told myself someone for me, this all aged when we meet up things went down he had expected something different thinner and lighter. I don’t know where he got that idea from I clearly described my self to him and I sent him a fucking a picture. After this incident I hated myself and him hate was my new religion and I self practiced.
It wasn’t until I met Irene or Phat gurl as we call her that I changed my life she taught me that fat does not equal ugly and if I stopped believing so would the world with this new mind set I changed my way of thinking; by me thinking and projecting that I am FAT FIERCE AND FABULOUS so would everyone else the truth is my body does not weight me down I can dance, laugh and have fun just like everyone else
