I posted on one of my blogs some of self-portraits by Jen Davis. I really like this project, for both its artistic and social value.
One person asked me if I could fall in love with Jen or  aperson looking like this. I said that it is possible. Then the same persone asked if my female partner (the word is gendered in Russian) is thin. Because I could lie about liking a fat woman while having a thin partner.
I told this person to fuck off. But now I'm angry and want to vent.

Can I count how much is wrong with this question? Starting with the fact that it was actually asked? My private life is nobosy's business. My partner's looks is nobody's business. My partner's gender is nobody's business and not up for assumption. As well as the assumption that I have a partner at all, or that I have only one partner. Actually, even my personal preferences and my own body shape had nothing to do with me liking that project and the idea of fat acceptance that it embodies.

...ugh.
Dead Universe, make all stupid people clever right now, please?
