I have fat arms and fatter thighs,
but that doesn't stop me from being slightly wise. 
"They're a part of me, a part of who I am",
oh! can someone, anyone hear my cries?
I think I'll wear a dress tonight.
A chipped tooth plus a crooked smile,
shouln't stop me from shining bright.
*If the fat one is going to wear it,
I'll too wear a dress too tight.
Tangled, frizzy, untamed hair,
don't stop me from dancing wild.
Some day this too will be a fad,
I say, to my child.
Just some crazy people famous for illicit things,
"Notorious", says the world.
One good thing they choose to do,
"fake", says the world.

- Ragini Zutshi Anand

*Not trying to hurt anyone here. I'm showing you how the girl from the first few lines, is confident and wears dresses, against the strong stereotype of fat girls not wearing dresses. So the girl with the chipped tooth is thinking that if the fat girl can where a dress, then why should she shy away?
