Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Fat bias.]

"When I go shopping, most of the time I'm disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers—very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people—and they all said no."Melissa McCarthy, who is starting her own fashion line for fat ladies.

I love, ahem, how you can be Melissa fucking McCarthy, but designers still won't design for you if you're fat. Because your fat might be bad for their business.

Know what's bad for your business, fashion designers? When you're incapable of designing clothes that look good on fat women.
