Why is female flesh so fearsome? Why do the Overweight Haters think it's ok to distribute Fat Cards to women on the London Underground? Why is the worst insult a rejected man on Tinder can throw at a woman is 'ur fat and ugly anyway'? They know it strikes at the fear in the very centre of our being.
Before adopting a vegetarian diet a year ago I had a number of concerns. Would I be getting the right vitamins? Would I get bored of eating the same things? Would I always be hungry? Would I be judged by others? The journey has been interesting and rewarding. Here are some of the things I have learned along the way.
In 2016, I will be continuing to trundle along much as I did in 2015. I will face the cold, and the gloom, and the irritation of other people's New Year's Resolutions with humour, and forbearance and wine. Lots of wine. In fact, I might just pop back into Enoteca Rabezzana, which is an Italian wine and tapas bar in the Barbican.
Of course, here at Loose Debra we believe that big breasts, saggy breasts, small breasts and no-breast chests are all intrinsically beautiful and don't need to change - it's all about attitude. I was a bit sad that the woman had felt the need for augmentation, though not unsympathetic as we all live with the social pressure to be valued according to what society says is valuable.
