I thought about how unfair women's sizes are to men's sizes. I do not wear anything that is considered a large. No one makes comments about my size anymore. I have not ripped or gone through a pair of pants in years. Yet if I was a women I would have to shop at "plus-size" stores.
Before I was a plus-size woman, I was a plus-size teen and before that I was a pleasantly plump little girl. Growing up, my shopping sprees were reduced to the women's department because retailers had not grasped the concept of age-appropriate plus-size clothing.
It is assumed that the reason that plus-size women are often BFFs with gay men is that they can't get affection from other men, or even get dates, and that gay men pity them and are using them, giving nothing back. Well, I am one of these women, and those assumptions just don't fit.
