Gloria the Hippo

Lets face it, it sucks being a woman in a world like this.There are a thousand ways to let us know how we are not good enough(cheating ex boyfriends,fashion magazines,annoying tailors,nosy aunts).Little wonder then that I am surrounded with women who are good,beautiful,strong minded and suffering from a mysterious sense of inferiority(I am thankfully not one of them because chocolates keep me happy.fat.but happy).To these lovably idiotic women I present a steaming hot feminist icon-Gloria the hippo.

 She gets male attention because she is "big".She stands by her friends no matter what.She is cheerful during the toughest situations.She speaks her mind.And she chooses the better man in the end.

Way to go Glo!To you i dedicate the most eloquent words in the History of music-I like big butts and I cannot lie.

Why is so much of Feminism exclusive of petite women? Why is being big always subtly equated with being 'real' women - I suppose it's understandable, but it gets annoying after a while.

absolutely not the case.Take Shakira,take Sushmita Sen.I love them i said,Gloria is a real woman because she can hold her own.she trusts hersself,she loves herself for being who she is.thats about more no less:)

I agree, looks don't have (or shouldn't have) any bearing when it comes to who a person truly is. Trying to fit into an image is only doing your inner self an injustice. Feminism is something I've always felt very strongly about, and it's refreshing to read your posts. I will definitely keep reading!

I've read your blog three or four times and you definitely have a message. But I feel there is an inside person trying to get out and explain to the world about an 'issue' other than Feminism and size.

But I'm stuck on what it is. Your opening line 'a world like this' means something deep to you, possibly a secret or a desire and you're not letting it go easily. Keep it going it's excellant. Mart.

Eleanor Roosevelt said, "No one can make you feel inferior unless you allow it."

I was brought up in the South where women are taught to please their men...(actually, we were taught we had to please everyone). And I have learned over time that isn't possible.

So I have come to accept that I have to be true to who I am and let everyone else decide for themselves if they want to be part of my life. It's all I can do. It's the best I can do.

I love Gloria the Hippo. I embrace her! And we, as women, must stand true to who we are. We owe ourselves that much...and more! ... Hugs!
