Die Pink Patch Die

August 14, 2008

I am so sick of seeing the PinkPatch adverts, on my email, Facebook and other websites. I don’t want to look at a skinny torso in cheap underwear. It irritates me. This is a part of my body I store under an array of delightful clothing, occasionally displayed to people who know me well enough to judge me on my personal qualities. I resent being encouraged to compare my torso and find it wanting. I resent the glaring implications. Is my abdomen this flat? Can I see my hip bones? Are the only curves on my body the ones that curve inward?

No. But I don’t hate my body. Fuck off PinkPatch for implying I should.

I know this is old news but godfuckingdamnit when will the damn thing fuck off.
