I’m in love with the “FU” Fairy!
Note: I have no problem saying (or writing) the “cuss” words, but I want to keep this a clean blog, so please forgive my abreviation.
This article was in my FB feed. I love this article. Not just about saying “FU” (sometimes politely) to people who fat-shame, but to remember that we have the right to say “FU” (firmly, but without cussing) to anybody who has the temerity to overstep:
- Is that all your eating? or Are you eating all that? – FU
- You’ll meet someone when you stop looking – FU
- When are you going to have kids? – FU (for my sister)
- You look really tired. – FU
- Pretty much any sentence that starts with “You should…” and ends with unsolicited advice. – FU
- You should/shouldn’t give your child that medication. (usually related to behavior) – FU
- If that were my kid…. – FU
I had a long conversation with my daughter last night. I don’t want her to wait until she’s thirty (or forty-something) to find her “FU” Fairy. She came up with a few of her own:
- Anything talking about her genetalia. – FU
- How do you know you are gay? Aren’t you really bi? – FU
- “You would be beautiful if you lost a few pounds/changed your clothes, dressed more like a girl, etc. – FU
I’m so proud!
When do you need your FU Fairy?
