Beth Ditto: "I'm not an unhealthy person, and I feel like one of the most tiring parts of being fat and being proud of it is … you do a lot of proving yourself all the time. It's really interesting to me that people will look at a thin person and go, 'That's a healthy person.' I want to go, 'Come open my refrigerator and look, and then let's talk about what you think is so bad.' To be thin and to stay really thin, sometimes … some people literally do coke all the time. Some people smoke cigarettes instead of eating. That's crazy. But that's 'okay' because you look healthier." [Jezebel]
