Recently, I was featured on Fashion Bomb. Now, I'm very aware of Fashion Bomb's readers and how they react to the plus size fashion bomb of the day. The audacity that a fat girl might love herself and try to show off in some cute outfits. But in the words of Beyonce: "I love haters."
A sense of humor is a good thing in life and in art, but with the advent of the internet, the proliferation of misinformation and the spreading of sometimes damaging untruths has become rampant, redundant and sometimes dangerous.
We've hidden behind the idea that "bullies will be bullies" or "they're just kids" for too long. Just because abuse takes place online does not mean that it's any less real, less harmful, or less fatal.
