Famous Quotes By Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 237710

Side note: is anyone else grateful social media wasn't a thing when they were a teenager? It's like Draco Malfoy and all three Heathers smooshed into one invisible organism that thrives on Internet memes and passive aggression. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1423332

First things first, I'm going to tell you why I'm fat, because I actually get this question a lot, much in the way people are asked how they got into live-action role playing or funeral home cosmetology. The answer I'd like to give to people who ask me that question is that God made us all different, and she made some people round-shaped, like me, and some people asshole-shaped, like you. Too direct? Fine, here's the deal.

Most kids inherit their best qualities from their parents. I inherited mental illness and fat thighs. Oh, and astigmatism and course body hair. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 2050005

Seeing color doesn't mean you're a racist. It means your eyes work, but that you are hopefully able to see color not for a discrepancy in normal, but as a beautiful component of diversity. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1818821

We aren't fetishes or last resorts, but we were being treated that way in the media. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 331401

I stopped glorifying women as beautiful only if they were also thin. In fact, beautiful was the very last thing I decided I would tell Gigi she was each day, after brilliant, hilarious, curious, creative, and daring. There are so many important things to be in this world, it's unfair to devote so much of what describes us to our body size. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 670610

You are going to fail at a lot of things, so when you do, do it on such a grand scale that half the room gives you a standing ovation, and the other half gives you the middle finger. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1113839

You don't get to legislate the parameters of my confidence. I get to feel good about myself because I am a person; my size has nothing to do with it. IN — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 2260088

You aren't attractive; you're basically a fat fetish." — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 207714

I tried to explain to him why I was self-conscious, and then he asked why telling me how pretty I was wasn't enough for me to get over it, and I felt like a horrible, horrible asshole. Becoming — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 2251020

I've actually long suspected there was a skinny girl inside me, but not in a metaphysical way. More like I probably had a twin, but I ate her. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1641512

Well, unless I'm sitting atop you, what I weigh is really none of your business. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1593905

...the thing about dieting is that it's really horrible and boring for a longer period of time than feeling pretty in small jeans feels. That's just basic math. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1513692

Instead, I realized that people are allowed to say whatever they want to me about my weight, but it's entirely up to me how much power I let those words have over me. I'm not obligated or required to accept negative commentary about my looks. I'm not less confident or honest for ignoring that it's there. I'm just confident enough to know it's not true. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1243541

I envision my mind as a plot of grass full of sheep surrounded by a perimeter of electric fence. If I'm not constantly vigilant and aware of my thoughts, the electric fence shuts off, the sheep jump out, and my panic gets away from me. The chance for an attack is especially bad just before bed or when I'm distracted or lost in thought in the car, causing me to slap myself in the face as hard as I can or bite the inside of my upper arm. If I can feel the pain, then I am still alive and can begin to focus on rounding up the sheep again. See? This makes perfect sense in my head. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1234853

There is no greater species better crafted for emotional terrorism than women. We slice away at the Achilles until our victims are left feeling completely devoid of value and unfit for love, friendship, and in extreme cases, air. We've been bred to see others' successes as a direct assault to our own, and this is especially true when it comes to weight. Seeing someone who is heavier than us viewing themselves in a positive light is detrimental to our own self-esteem. So we attack and tear down until eventually that person feels as bad about herself as we do about ourselves. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 1002446

Hemorrhoids Go big or go home! That was my mental response to childbirth. You want me to push? Okay, awesome. I'm going to push so hard that I not only eject this baby from me, but I'm also going to turn my butthole inside out. When I explained the issue to my OB, she insisted hemorrhoids were totally normal, and if they didn't go away, I could get a quick surgery to correct them, a suggestion that I met with a resounding "Nope!" I had already spent a month in elementary school sitting on a blowup pillow, and I'm not pulling my pants down as an adult to have surgery in my butt. So, here I am, five years out from my last birth and sitting in my chair a quarter of an inch taller. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 762933

Just remember this: college is the most expensive place to be confused in the whole entire world. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 566147

I like to put good food in my mouth, and while I am aware of the calories I ingest, instead of cutting them I make them count. I have a full-on love affair with food, appreciating the different cultures and processes within it. — Brittany Gibbons

Brittany Gibbons Quotes 275328

You are allowed to float around having no damned idea what you want to do with yourself with no actual time frame in which you need to figure it out. — Brittany Gibbons
