A Letter to the Editor: Dear Chrystal

The Laughing Lesbian has hit a milestone! We have hit one year and what a year it has been. When I first launched our small online magazine I had no idea what I was doing. And if we are being honest, I still donai??i??t. I had a good idea of what I wanted and I had some big dreams, but in reality I threw myself into the ocean without learning how to swim.

Interview with Model Madeline Stuart

Chrystal and Emily from The Laughing Lesbian got an opportunity to have a chat with Madeline Stuart, the beautiful young girl from Australia who is taking the world by storm. Madeline has Downs Syndrome, but it hasnai??i??t held her back from reaching her goals. Madeline wanted to be a model, and with determination, hard work and support from her wonderful mother, she became just that and more! She has become an inspiration to people all around the world and believes that everyone is beautiful and everyone has the ability to make their dreams a reality.

Interview With Harnaam Kaur: The Bearded Dame

The Laughing Lesbian has a pretty simple motto: "Empowered Women Empowering Women." We are always on the look out for diverse and brave women who are willing to share their story with us. When I found Harnaam though Instagram I knew we had to interview her. This young woman is everything we hold sacred. She is beautiful, brave, inspiring and most of all she is empowering of others. Harnaam struggled throughout her life, dealing with bulling about her facial hair and self harm due to horrible depression. But like a Phoenix (check out her gorgeous phoenix tattoo!) she rose from the ashes and has become a woman we can all admire. Chrystal and I are so honored to get to speak with Harnaam and we are so excited to share her with you! Recently Harnaam did a photo shoot (just for fun, Harnaam isn't getting married just yet!) with Urban Bridesmaid Photography to show the world just how beautiful she really is. We hope you enjoy this interview as much as we enjoyed speaking with Harnaam.

Fat is Not the New Sexy

We have all seen it: the new ad campaigns featuring plus size women, the expensive new bathing suits that accentuate the good features and hide the bad. Its all the rage: fat is the new sexy. And as much as I should be thrilled by this new mentality- I am not. Fat isnai??i??t the new sexy.

Fat has always been sexy.

Who the hell gets to dictate what is sexy and isnai??i??t? Since when isnai??i??t a curvaceous woman beautiful? Why are we just now realizing that ALL women of all shapes and sizes are beautiful? So you have a thigh gap! Thatai??i??s great! You are beautiful. I donai??i??t have a thigh gap. In reality I spend more money on jeans because of chub rub than I care to admit but I really donai??i??t think that makes me any more or any less sexy. While I do appreciate the stance in singling out a body type that has been shamed, it is in fact doing the same thing to other body types. If fat is the new sexy then what happens to the skinny girls? Are skinny girls still sexy?

Body shaming is real and its victims are not just fat girls, they are skinny, short, tall, freckled, pale, colored and in reality, anything that is not text book ai???perfect.ai??? Women are perfect just because of who we are. We are diverse, we are unique and every type of women should be celebrated because that type of woman is beautiful.

So no, I do not think fat is the new sexy, fat has always been sexy just like every other type of body. Can we just celebrate women in general instead of picking a “body type of the week?” Women are sexy. Period.
