Fat women are lazy and discussting

No the final word in my title is not one of my typos, “discussting” is a word, well apparently it is if you are an ignorant, coward of an internet troll, one who takes the time to leave a comment on my blog. Over the years I have had a few rude messages left on … Continue reading

Welcome to the Matrix
