25 Things Fat People Shouldn't Do is an unabashed middle finger to the preposterous idea that any human who weighs more than the status quo does not deserve to live a full and well rounded (ahem) life. The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. Feel free to join in on the fun, and if you do, link at the bottom so I can share. May the Chub Club live long and prosper!

This isn't technically an ironic shirt, but it makes the exact same point when worn with confidence. The second I saw this fat shaming shirt (and there are a million more where that came from) I knew the words I wanted to use for this post. And it was a HUGE (ha!) success.

Hell yeah I have a burrito bump! Tucson is the most delicious burrito capital of the United States! That's actually probably the truth. No shame. I love burritos more than your opinion of my body.

I wore this kick ass shirt all day while I ran errands around town. I felt like a sexy bitch, and the reactions were overwhelmingly positive whether I was at the market, shmancy restaurant, or alternative bookstore. More compliments and smiles than ever before.

A picture for the haters:

And that's all I gotta say about that.

Your challenge: Rock the hell out of a cheeky fat positive shirt! Anyone (no size exclusions!) can join in... just provide a link to your post below! You can always contribute to the 25 things that I've already done. The link up will be open until the 25 are completed, so go back and do them all!


  1. heck yeah! You're rocking my world so hard in that shirt!!!

  2. Oh how I love this -- and I feel it would be particular wonderful here in Utah :)

  3. I love it! That top is so amazing and you, by the way, are a gorgeous, gorgeous lady!


  4. Hahaha this is SO Great, what an amazing shirt!


  5. And JESUS my legs are so sexy.

    Jaw dropping sexy.

  6. I so need a t-shirt like this for the underground! I've been offered a seat several times, and while I do certainly encourage people to do that, it usually ends in me barking at the polite person and feeling ashamed of myself after. I think maybe I should just gracefully accept the offer next time...

  7. WTF - seriously the internet sometimes?! You cant be too big, too skinny, or really anything. I swears. I love that you are just throwing it up to them - and I love this. Who wears (an a really ugly one at that) a shirt like that one you linked to? Ugh. Not cute! At least you look like you're having a good time.

    OH and Tucson! I wanna visit - and might be in July! :D

  8. Ha ha... this is great! New story to tell you :D

    I've had a sleeve surgery (yes to help me loose the extreme overweight). When I went in to the hospital my sister came along with me. She's a chubby-fantastic girl as well... We both have the most brilliant sense of humour (of course!!!) and what did she wear when she came to take me home afterwards? A t-short that hugged her huge boobs and her round lovely belly, that said "fat people are harder to kidnap".... Love her!!! :D

    Some people might not have found it funny, in the setting and all... but man did we laugh all the way home!

    btw, still chubby chubby 1 year after, but no longer afraid for my life ;)

  9. Where did you get the shirt??

  10. I love this. Thank you! Jo x

  11. lady, you are the cutest thing I've ever seen.

  12. Wow! That sure took a lot of guts! Honestly, you're the first person that I have ever seen to wear such ironic stuff. O . O I need one of those shirts!

    Little story:
    My long time crush and I (yep, just the two of us) went to a local amusement park recently because we have vouchers. After the lady at the counter attached my RAYC wrist band thing, she told me "Pregnant women are not allowed to ride certain rides.". I was shocked by this, a bit of shamed, (because being single and pregnant is not acceptable in my country unless the girl was raped) and was holding my laugh back. Me and my crush where like "What?" as we looked at each other, holding back our laughter. Then the lady realized that I wasn't pregnant, just fat, and she told us "Just saying.". But we know that she mistook me for a pregnant woman because she looked at me again and again to check if I was really pregnant.

    When I saw that fat shaming shirt, I remembered that experience.
