“I stay fat because it just wouldn’t be fair to all the thin people if I were this good looking, intelligent, funny and thin. It’s a public service really.”

“I felt really bad for someone who is swimming in so much hate. I just thought, that’s someone who’s in a really bad spot, and I am in such a happy spot. I laugh my head off every day with my husband and my kids who are mooning me and singing me songs.”

Adele

“Why does me being fat offend so many people? Is it because I’m confident and I’m fly and I’m sexy? Do my thighs offend? Does my stomach offend? Does my big juicy ass offend? Why? Why? Let my big ass live!”

“Just because we’re plus size, doesn’t mean we have to prove that we’re healthy, just as someone who is smaller than us or average size doesn’t have to prove they are healthy.
We should be able to exist in our bodies. I am technically healthy but my body is no more valid than someone’s who isn’t. ”

Gabourey Sidibe

“I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime television, I’m very proud of the work we all did to make that scene a great opening for the episode. I keep hearing that people are “hating” on it. I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway.”

Kelly Clarkson

“She doesn’t know me. It’d doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. I’ve just never cared what people think. It’s more if I’m happy and confident and feeling good, that’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family – I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”
