I Wore a Bikini and Nothing Happened

I found this article interesting because so many people are so anal retentive that few if any women from here would wear a two piece bathing suit if they were even a few pounds overweight. This shouldn’t even be an article but it was because people in this country are incredibly hung up on their looks. Otto
This year, I made a New Year's resolution that confused some people. By confuse, I mean conversations about it usually went like this:
Me: "Next summer, I'm going to wear a bikini."
Them: "What a great goal! What are you doing? Weight Watchers? Jenny Craig? Are you going vegan? Paleo? Are you having the surgery?"
Me: "I said I was going to wear a bikini. I didn't say I was going to lose weight."
Them: Face melts off like they're staring into the Arc of The Covenant.
I didn't understand why this was so hard to grasp. By now, everyone on the Internet has heard the saying, "How to get a bikini body: Put a bikini on your body." The "fatkini" was news last summer, and in such demand that finding one, even through the powers of the Internet, was difficult. This year, I was prepared; I ordered mine in March.
No one I had the above conversation with had the audacity to tell me directly that I shouldn't wear a bikini because my fatness would offend their eyes. Not one person would admit that they didn't want me to wear a bikini because of their aesthetic preference -- a preference that is shaped by our cultural perceptions of what is and isn't beautiful. But that wasn't the reason these people didn't want me to wear a bikini. Of course, it could never be as shallow as that.
The most common concern was my health. Presumably.
