Keep Doing!

Fixed it for you:

If you like a style of clothing, why in the world would you ever make yourself wait before wearing it? Put on those shorts right now! You don’t have to be skinny in order to dress the way that you want to dress. 
Stop saying: “Only thin people are allowed to show off their bodies and be fashionable.” And start saying “Everyone has the right to dress how they want, so let’s stop acting like certain clothing has a size limit.”

While I whole-heartedly agree with the sentiment here and think that anyone should be able to wear anything they wish and that this meme is definitely problematic, I feel like you’re ignoring a reality of this situation. This problematic bs is backed up by the fact that clothing does have size limits and the manufactures aren’t making clothes for bigger girls. We do need to work to normalize all body shapes, but let’s not pretend they make those shorts in an 18. Because they don’t.I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying it’s a fact.

I think that’s a very important aspect of this discussion - Once you reach a larger size, clothing options are absolutely limited. Availability, cost and even the harassment amassed by dressing this way in public can all be things that stop people from wearing what they want.
But none of that means that weight-loss should be advertised as the solution to these problems.
I completely agree with you as well, so please don’t think that I’m arguing here. It’s just important to note that it’s not clothing and styles themselves that have a size limit. It’s a messed up cultural fear of fat that’s preventing people from wearing what they want and providing clothing styles in all sizes. It’s the weight loss industry that’s to blame, not your body. Never your body. You shouldn’t (and you don’t) have to change yourself in order to solve these issues.
And just a note: If anyone actually is interested in those shorts, you can find similar plus-size versions here:
Jeansonly on Etsy (up to size XXL)
KamiShade (up to size 24)
KamiShade (up to size 24)
Amazon (up to size XXXL)
SilverJeans (up to size 26+)
JudyBlue (up to size XXXL)
Wantdo Denim (up to size 30)
It still takes a ridiculous amount of searching to find plus-size versions of straight size clothing, I know, but there’s hope. Don’t feel like your body is responsible for the messed up values of clothing designers!

A lot of people like to explain consent in sexual encounters as “No means no.” This is true, but doesn’t capture as many crucial parts of happy fun sex and experiences as “Yes means yes!” Consent should always be informed and enthusiastic, never coerced, and you and your partner should be looking for consent continuously. Stay safe, stay happy, and have fun!

Consent can look different for different people, but that’s why communication between partners is so important. No matter what it looks like though, consent should not hinge on any fear, discomfort, or pressure.
