Reading Big Fat Blog reminded me of something I observed in Austin while out at Polly Esthers. They are more excepting of the non-twig women. The ones with curvy figures. Here in Houston, any time I go to any club I feel ignored because I am not a size 2 and never will be. It’s quite demeaning. In Austin though, I noticed many other women my size (that would be somewhere between a 12 & a 16 depending on the brand of clothes) and larger who were being hit on, flirted with, and picked up. I felt like it was ok to be me. It was a good feeling, and reminded me once again why I am not a big fan of Houston.
