First and foremost, if you’re a curvy, thick, big-boned (or what have you) girl like me, you’re going to adore this week’s Youtuber Of The Week. In fact, after watching the video I’m about to talk about, you’re going to join the long line of women queuing to marry him. Now that that’s been said, let’s get right to it. Malis Tglr everybody! And, to be honest, I discovered him quite arbitrarily and completely by chance. I was in the middle of being traumatised by my first HowToBasic video (side note: I am in dire need of venting all of my raging emotions for the lawlessness of HowToBasic videos, but more on this later, I need a whole segment for that!) when I glanced at the sidebar and saw an intriguing title:
“I Love Me A Big Girl”
And before I even saw the video, no, before I even clicked on the video, I loved it. Yes, I know that’s somewhat narcissistic of me, but you’re gonna have to cut me some slack. My thick sisters and brothers: you feel me.
So, I clicked on the video. I watched it. I laughed. It ended. I pressed reply. I watched it again. I pressed replay. Wash, rinse and repeat this about five or six times. Let me tell you why I loved it so much and why Malis is my YouTuber of the Week.
1) He didn’t say the words “fat” & “thick” like they were curse words.
2) His laugh.
3) He gave multiple reasons for why he likes chubby girls when, in all honesty, he only needed to tell us one. I mean, I am pleasantly elated that he enlightened me that there’s a whole sea full of fish that go for the fish other fish swim away from. Did that analogy make any sense?
4) He was straightforward.
5) His laugh.
6) This phrase: “Are you f*cking retardedly stupidly dumb?” (you’ll get it when you watch the video)
7) His laugh.
8) This phrase: “A big girl will make you feel loved”
9) He didn’t skinny-shame.
10) He was genuinely funny.
Honestly, there are a few things he said that I don’t like, and I would specify but I don’t want to ruin the magic for you. It’s just nice to hear, from a man’s perspective, that us thicker girls aren’t the ugly, incompatible, cat-ladies we make ourselves out to be. And yes, I know this is just one man’s opinion. But if one person can have the capacity to feel and think this way, then it at least gives us hope that there are more out there kind of like him. I’d certainly like to think so.
As always, stay fresh.
