Dressing in the Name of

This week has seen more troll activity than usual on the various clothing brand Facebook pages as well as some personal attack on one of my favourite bloggers Kathryn from Miss Kathryn's Misstakes.

I don't pretend to know the reason why people think that it is ok to insult others.  The rule of thumb is, or at least it should be, if you wouldn't say it to someone on the street, don't say it online.

I was reading Becky's post yesterday on the ace MrsBebeBlog talking about this very subject and one of the comments in response caught my eye.  T from UandMii said "I'm now in my mid forties and have the attitude, "Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me." 

This immediately made me think of the Rage Against the Machine song, "Killing in the Name of" 

(if you haven't heard it before, listen here as the rest of this post will then make sense, and if you don't like that sort of music, go straight to 4 mins 12)



I'm using part of that song and changing it up to what I actually want to shout at trolls, haters, people who tell you "you shouldn't/can't wear that", the people who want to keep you wearing a black tent, here is what I am singing when I see or hear these comments:

Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
Fuck you, I won't wear what you tell me.
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!!
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!!
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!!
FUCK YOU, I WON'T WEAR WHAT YOU TELL ME!!!


Viva the fucking revolution.

  1. What happened to Kathryn? I missed that but I hope she's OK. This week has been HELL for plus sized people. I think too many people are pissed off and looking to share it because it's a long 5 weeks to payday, the weather is crap and they want someone to take it out on. To think these trolls are grown women is shocking!

  2. Applause! This is why I avoid the FB threads of plus-size clothing companies like the plague!

  3. I can't understand why people insult. If you don't like a blogger, simply don't read her posts. Well, I hope this is good news for you. As I love your blog, I've nominated you for the Liebster award. This is the link to the nomination post http://www.forarealwoman.com/2014/01/liebster-award-nomination.html
