Here is why Torrid’s rebranding has put them on my shitlist.
This, right here, is the reason I’m looking for new employment. Because the things my store manager has told me are being backed up by corporate. Because I’ve been told shorts I was wearing to work shouldn’t be sold in all the sizes Torrid sells and I couldn’t wear them any more. Because I’ve been told that fat visibility is offensive to plus size women and gives them a bad name. Granted, these are things my store manager has told me, and they are her personal opinions. But I know she would be backed up by corporate if I said anything. I’m tired of being told what I should look like, especially by a company where I once felt comfortable being myself. As my other manager and I were saying yesterday, Torrid’s shrunk the size of the mannequins from a 16 to a 12. I have yet to meet a person from corporate who was actually plus size, and I think that’s the problem. I don’t feel like Torrid and I are on the same level anymore.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT RESPONSE MY ARTICLE HAS GOTTEN.
Would you mind if I posted this on other places? Inbox me!

This is really important.
I’m definitely going to go spend the $60 I was planning on dropping on the one dress I really liked on Torrid’s website somewhere else. Somewhere more friendly to actual fat people, with actual fat models and actual fat mannequins. Fuck their bullshit.
Welp, good thing I haven’t touched their shit in years.
“I suppose earlier generations had to sit through all this huffing and puffing with the invention of television, the phone, cinema, radio, the car, the bicycle, printing, the wheel and so on, but you would think we would learn the way these things work, which is this:
1) everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal;
2) anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it;
3) anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it until it’s been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really.
Apply this list to movies, rock music, word processors and mobile phones to work out how old you are.”—
Seriously. I am so fucking over this “The lesbian thinks the guy/ting the guy(s) did was hot, so that means it’s really hot. The guy is just that good that he can even almost turn a lesbian.” Especially since she can’t actually fucking do anything or show anything for fucking women except every once in a blue moon. It’s fucking ridiculous.
Also, since apparently we’re watching different shows, this was not single Kurt out living it up as a single dude in NYC. He got crazy drunk/high, taken advantage of, TIED UP AGAINST HIS WILL, and then robbed. He felt terrible about it afterwards, and shamed. How is this what people want for Kurt?
Oh god is this what happened? I don’t think I can watch this fucking episode.
I’ll be honest, ya’ll. I haven’t seen then last four or five episodes yet. I remember when I used to look forward to it every week, when I was in such a bad place that the show kept me going, helped me not give up.
Can we just like imagine queer students using Lee Jordan to come out like "AND GRYFFINDOR SCORES A POINT! BY THE WAY PADMA PATIL IS A LESBIAN AND SHE'S READY TO MINGLE" and padma is like ayyyyyyyyyyy step right up ladies

Can you honestly not see how childish your resentment and mocking of white, cishet, males is?
but what if you became a famous actor or actress and then you were asked to do a film and you accepted but then your costar was your celebrity crush that you used to blog about at 3am and you used to cry over their face and their general life decisions
And then you find out there’s a sex scene between the two characters
And then there are gifs of those sex scenes. You become someone’s otp..
