You already know what I am talking about. We have heard this many times in our lives as fatties. "You have such a pretty face"...
And for most of us...we wanted to be MORE than "just a pretty face".
Well, dating and loving a woman has many fun facets to it that you don't get to enjoy if you are dating a man. One such "fun facet" is that when you are dating a man...you never have to worry about him stealing and using all the tampons in the house...leaving you with none when you start your period...causing you to have to harken back to the dark ages and make some sort of contraption to stuff in your underwear until you get to the damn store...
But I digress.
Another thing that is different is that because Heather is a woman..and I am a woman...we talk a lot more about bodies, diets, etc...than you would with a normal man partner...
So we were watching The Voice several weeks ago and Frenchie is on. For those of you who watched American Idol years ago, you know Frenchie. Anywhoozle, she is a big gal who has a beautiful complexion, self confidence...and yes...a very pretty face.
And Heather said as much. She said "She has such a pretty face".
And I said...fat girls don't like hearing that.
And she honestly did not understand where I was coming from. Bless her thin girl heart.
"But it's a compliment", she said.
Yes, I told her. But when you see a thin person, you never say "She has such a pretty FACE." You just say "She is pretty". But people say "such a pretty face" and it insinuates that her FACE is pretty...even though her body is not.
It was just funny to me that it had never occurred to Heather...and I bet a lot of people who have never been identified by one feature because there others are less than desirable.
Just food for thought.
