The Militant Baker

Alright alright alright ! Jes Baker, probably known to most of our readers here as “The Militant Baker” is coming to San Jose on July 23rd and we are having an extra special reception and event at Curvy Girl Lingerie featuring Jes.

CHANGE YOUR WORLD NOT YOUR BODY

RSVP HERE:  $25 includes wine and nibbles

(If you want to cut and past the link to RSVP, here is the actual link:   http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-militant-baker-meets-curvy-girl-723-hugs-body-love-selfies-more-tickets-12085031655  )

Jes will be giving a presentation along with the hugs, selfies, wine and fun.

“In “Change Your World, Not Your Body”: Baker explores the historical evolution behind our current idyllic body type, the stigma surrounding mental illness, and what we can do individually to reframe the way we perceive ourselves and others. She encourages each person to “change your world, not your body,” uses empirical data to explore the correlation between weight and health, and discusses the “Health At Every Size” movement. Come ready to challenge the notion that beauty is exclusive in this powerful, passionate and progressive presentation

It’s REAL fun.

And afterwards is the EXTRA fun part where y’all get to hug me, tell me your stories and then take selfies with me. I kinda love it.”

Jes is such an inspiration. If you don’t currently follow her, I highly recommend you add her Militant Baker fb page to your news feed.

We have limited seats for this event and I am having it catered, so please RSVP early to save your spot and guarantee you can join us that night. We will have wine, water and softdrinks available.

We will be outside on our back patio for this event, so be sure to be prepared for July 23rd type weather – which here in San Jose could mean it may be anywhere from 75 degrees to 100 degrees – who knows. So prepare accordingly, please. Folding chairs for everyone.

We’re NOT hiding anymore, Linda Kelsey. “Fatties” having fun!

"Fatties" at a concert! Gorgeous!

“Fatties” at a concert! Gorgeous!

As I posted on my FB page, today, this woman Linda Kelsey wins the “Asshole of the Year” award.  I am NOT linking to her hate filled article on the “Daily Mail Online” article, because I do not want to give them any more traffic and the article is filled with so much vitriol and just totally ignorant comments about some “fatties” as she calls them.

Basically her entire article picks apart all of the young “fatties” and other “fatties” she sees all around her. And she is just so grossed out and offended that fat women have the NERVE to act like we can exist.

The article includes the requisite dehumanizing pictures of fatties with their heads cut off as they innocently walk down a public street. Because you know, fatties should wear a tent to cover our rolls and “lumpen” bodies.

"Fatties" having fun in a swimming pool. SHOCKING I know. :)

Yes, she used the word “lumpen.” I mean, how are CURVY people even allowed to leave the house? I mean, gross, right? The NERVE of us fat people walking around, traveling, going out with our friends, wearing a bikini on the beach, taking vacations, wearing sun dresses and tank tops when it’s hot.  JUST STAY HOME “fatties” and hide out – don’t let the sunlight shine on your “billowing pillows of back and shoulder stuffing!”  (Yes, she used those exact words!)

"Fatties" hiking and in a tank top! GASP!

Honestly, when I first read the article I figure it was a piece of satire from The Salon or The Oatmeal.  NOPE. It’s a real life article about this woman’s HATE for any overweight human out living a life or having and fun.

Beware, if you have any fat goldfish, a chubby Chihuahua or a fluffy guinea pig at home – hide them from Linda. I am sure they are next on the list for a seriously mean and fat shaming diatribe from this Linda Kelsey wench.

So, here is my CHALLENGE, fat friends.  We want to see you in your tank tops, sun dresses, bikinis, at the beach, out in public “Flashing Your Flesh” as this hateful, mean woman put it in her article. Let’s show her how it’s done fatties of the world!

Another "Fattie" Not in hiding! Go Jessica.

Another “Fattie” Not in hiding! Go Jessica.

Share your picture here on our blog our on our Facebook page.  You can find us at www.Facebook.com/CurvyGirlInc and yes “Flash Your Flesh”!

(I am going to walk off this spike in my blood pressure from this crazy mean article and I will likely take a stroll through my neighborhood wearing a tank top and my cordless vibrating panties! Pics to come.)

Don’t have me because I am Curvy-ful,

Asking the Lingerie Designers for What We Want

plus-size-lingerieHi Curvy Girls and our Allies:

I was recently in NYC for Full Figure Fashion Week and was invited to be on a panel to discuss the word “Plus” and what it means to us Curvy women. We also discussed if there are other words we would prefer to be used instead of PLUS. There were many other important topics that we chatted about and it was a full panel with lots of amazing curvy girls and curvy models in the audience.

What came of that meeting / panel discussion was this idea that we should start a letter writing campaign to the designers and ask for exactly what we want.  Since I am in the plus size lingerie industry, I am going to start by writing a “template letter” that we can all cut and paste and mail ourselves. ( I will get email addresses, Twitter handles and FB pages, too.)

So, to make sure the letter is PERFECT, I wanted to ask you for our feedback here. One I get some of your comments on the blog here, below, I will add your “Wish List” items to the letter and then will write a blog with the “official” letter you can copy and paste. (And will share all of the addresses and social media info.)

Let’s use our voice! Collectively we are mighty!
