"But the message is clear: in order to be considered 'sexy,' Ursula has to slim down a lot."
And the problem is? Additionaly, is their really a huge demand for "full figured" sized costumes that show of a lot of skin?
I can see it now. "Lets make a bunch of fat sexy cinderella costumes just to give the large ladies an option most of them would not choose anyway. It won't sell, but hey, that's not our goal. Our goal is to include everyone."
They have an option: MAKE THEIR OWN DAMN COSTUME.

Good point, I didn't even notice that.

Pelly, if it wasn't you, sorry!

Ugh, as one who lives in a college town in a time and place when people are fatter than ever, YES, there is a demand for slutty plus size costumes.

Heh, on Pinterest I saw this pic of these two girls with sheets over their heads and bikinis over the sheets. Slutty ghosts. I thought that was funny.

It was delightful. I learned today that if you ask for a chocolate banana side-by-side shake, you get fake banana. Still good, but today I asked for just a chocolate banana shake, you get *real* banana. Like, straw cloggingly big pieces. Nom.

Thanks Jess.
PEllen, I'm sure you were just trying to be funny, but that was a pretty messed up comment.
My friend A doesn't need a new man to rescue her from this... she needs to recognize her own self-worth and not put up with being treated poorly for another second.
Sorry. It came from a good place but was clearly misguided

*I* still love ya, Pe. You were just ill-timed and too soon. That's why I'm trying not to post about my two girlfriends while jam's going through a break-up. But her low self-esteem friend is reminding her why it's not so bad to be single.
