[ TW: Fat Hate]

I have just come home from Download festival which was, mostly, a brilliant experience. I’ve been several times and I’ve always had a great time. I was with a large group of friends, some I’d not seen for a few years, we caught up, had some drinks and were looking forward to seeing our favourite bands.

The whole thing was ruined, however, by the hateful attitude some people have towards fat people (especially fat women) in a public space.

I am fat, I’m a UK size 24/26 and I was in the crowd to see Slipknot with  a friend who is larger than I am, so we’re pretty visible. The crowd was rowdy but it was a fun party atmosphere so we were laughing and joining in with singing along to the music on the PA. Suddenly we hear some drunk guys laughing behind us and various comments about our weight being made. We didn’t really mind as we’re used to it and they went quiet after being ignored.

Then suddenly, one of them shouts “FAT BITCH, YOU NEED A SHOWER!” and dumps a pint glass full of piss over my friend’s head and then they simply turned and wandered away laughing to the bar.

A pint glass of piss.

Please do not try to tell me that a “Skinny bitch” would receive the same treatment if she was out having fun at a festival.
