Getting my feelings hurt.
So I really got my feelings hurt tonight. Tears and all, and I had kind of forgotten what it was like to get my feelings really hurt. The cause of this can be foundhere, where someone, who I don’t know and who did not share their real e-mail so I could respond to them more or less unleashed a fatphobic diatribe on my blog including pulling a photo of me off my facebook and making references about me eating everyone/thing.
I have to be honest. I’m so sincerely hurt right now, it’s not anger, it’s not rage, it’s not frustration with structural inequalities, I’m just really hurt. In the midst of such an amazing week for me with such good news I feel like this was unnecessary. I am leaving the comments up against my better judgement. I just forgot what it felt like to be teased for being the fat kid. All of those emotions came rushing back when I read the hateful things being said about me.
It also makes me really rethink this whole blog idea. I can’t really do this whole getting my feelings hurt thing.
