Delusional Sea Cow

BUY PRINT

Dear Person On The Internet That Continually Calls Me A Delusional Sea Cow,

Is that really all you got? Am I supposed to be insulted? Because when you say sea cow, I think of a cute, squishy ocean animal with adorable little fins and forgiving eyes. I think of the manatees I sponsored in kindergarten, the one I went home and cried about when the teacher told me that they were being hit by boats. The sweethearts of the water that are so friendly they get too close to what is most dangerous to them.

I know you are trying to make me feel like I have no right to my feelings and that you know better. That you think that I am going to drop dead tomorrow unless I change my ways even though you have no facts about my health or habits to back up your claims. You are trying to degrade me. But I think you failed. Because I just keep picturing this femme floating through the water with a flower crown and rosey cheeks. She is sassy and self-assured but maybe a little confused. See, she is delusional because she believes that people want to treat other people with respect. She falsely assumes that she is safe from fucking idiots like you.

Yours, Delusional Sea Cow

Claire said...

EFF YEAH!

Gi Csome said...

That delusional sea cow is the sweetest! I hope that the fucking idiot that keeps attacking you reads this and come to his senses, but I seriously doubt it. That kind of person can´t deal with real confrontation.

Hannah Gabrielle Gibson said...

Thank you for addressing this! I saw this type of post with your photo and their message addressed to you on Imgur and was really upset by it. I'm glad that you can deal with it without stooping to their level and that you are confident enough in yourself to not let it bother you! Thanks for being an inspiration!

EF said...

You really are the greatest.

whitejenna said...

Omg! I love manatees! And sea turtles,sooooo not really so bad. People are morons...Love the fatty dipping pic on fb too,btw! You have a lovely outlook.

La'Shawn said...

Hell yeah! I kinda fell in love with you just now! Beautiful manatee! Love this!!

Lynn Gardner said...

Could we get that on a shirt, too? I'd love to wear it while I do my fitness routine (clearly, I am a delusional manatee because fat people can't be fit blahblahblah).

Kristin Wilson said...

Beautifully done!

Sarah Springer said...

The doodle! The message! Everything here has just warmed the cockles of my little heart.

Becky Bedbug said...

What? Sea cow? Is this an American thing because I have NO IDEA what a sea cow is and it makes no sense to me!


Let me tell you, you're the most awesome Delusional Sea Cow I've ever seen!

Becky

Nessbow said...

Ahaha! This is awesome!

Katherine said...

That would be so awesome!

Katherine said...

I love this and I love the way you've handled it. You (and sea cows) are awesome and a class act. :) I look at the sea cow and want to give her a high five and a hug cos she rocks.

Patsy Nevins said...

That picture is adorable. You & the manatee both rock.

Nicole said...

another vote for this design on a shirt! I'd love to wear it!

Gemma Norris said...

Oh god, this is all so beautiful. Your pictures and words recently have really touched my heart xx

Here's a book about a naked manatee in a Florida mystery novel.

Allison Kennedy said...

I had no idea my hero was a beautiful, smart, intelligent and witty...but also a sea cow!?!?! Hell yes.

Eartha said...

I LOOOOOOOVE sea cows. I'm pretty sure that if you *did* (heaven forbid) drop dead tomorrow for some reason, you'd have lived a more joyous life than whoever sent you that email.

Red said...

Kick Ass, Sea Bass! Its always amazing how brave people are when they are shielded by the anonymity of the internet! It takes an amazing person to give zero fucks about what they think. It can be hard to remember that you are amazing and dont need to waste any energy, good or bad, on these people. I admire you, Miss Lady, and think you are the JAM!

Susie_q said...

I find it so disturbing that someone would go so far out of their way to *try* to infringe on your beautifully cultivated self-esteem. I am of the opinion that when a person deals with the issues they *want* to deal with instead of the issues society *thinks* they should address then it's a win for humanity. Keep winning!!

Susie_q said...

I feel like I need to clarify. What I mean is that if you don't think your weight is an issue then who am I, that person, or anyone else in this world to tell you that you that it is, in fact, an issue. You are happy with who you are and THAT definitely is a win for humanity.

Heidi said...

i love this! You go girl! People are so rude!!!

thirties girl said...

Yes, exactly this. Excellent way to reclaim someone's negativity and fat hate and turn it into something wonderful.

Stephanie said...

LOVE IT !!!

erin said...

i fucking love this! your DSC is just as adorbz as i imagined.

Kerri Timberlake Haire said...

You are wonderful! Love your blog! Best sea cow ever!!

Amber said...

What a cute little sea cow! I love the flower wreath lol.

Some people are just really fucking jealous that they aren't as happy with their bodies, big or small, as you are. Fuck them. You're fabulous, you're inspiring, and you help others gain confidence in their bodies (like myself, so thank you!).

Also, I see Delusional Sea Cow and think "HEY! GREAT BLOG NAME!" lol.

And manatees are the sweetest.

Lorna said...

I actually saw this on imgur too and I quit imgur because of it. It's not the first instance of fat hate/ disgusting sexism I've seen on there, but seeing so many people agree with it made me sick to my stomach. It's also good to know other people got upset too, because I'm often accused of being too sensitive.

B Ha said...

well done!

Stephanie Ann said...

Preach!


This person is obviously delusional for calling you that.


I love the print :)


And I love you too!

Just Me Leah said...

BOOYAKASHA! Preach! You are the fucking raddest and I love you.

Pretty Penny Mae said...

What kind of insult is that? Manatees a ADORABLE!!! Who doesn't love manatees? That is the sweetest gal I've ever seen. I'm with Lynn Gardner, this would be one kick ass shirt!

Beatrice Im said...

You are Awesome! Best ever I need to write my mil a letter and I so wish to come across as sweet. Lets see in her eyes I am lazy dirty and underprivileged...Possible a sloth.

Rachele said...

Ooo you could draw a lovely sloth! They are adorable too!

Rachele said...

Man, I have to figure out this shirt thing. Such a good idea!

Rachele said...

I don't know what that means but thank you. ;)

Rachele said...

Aw thank you!

Rachele said...

Thanks!

Rachele said...

Don't tempt me! It would be a great blog name.

Rachele said...

She is a beauty! Thanks!

Rachele said...

It is exactly as I imagined too! Troll fail!

Rachele said...

Thanks!

Rachele said...

Sort of my thing I guess. Keep it coming haters!

Rachele said...

They are! I should ask them next time if they would say that to someone in front of their mother.

Rachele said...

Dude, the internet is full of those people! But I agree with you!

Rachele said...

Ha! Kick ass sea bass! You are THE best.

Rachele said...

Knock on wood! <3

Rachele said...

She needs a little cape. And a comic book. And a TV show.

Rachele said...

What?!?! That sound amazing.

Rachele said...

Thanks lady! You are beautiful!

Rachele said...

Thank you!

Rachele said...

I don't think her fin will reach that high :( Maybe a low five!

Rachele said...

Thanks dear!

Rachele said...

Manatee or dugong ring any bells? People call them different things.

Rachele said...

Yay! Sometimes I think I am a little cooky and nobody will get it. I am glad that it makes you as happy as it did me!

Rachele said...

Thanks Kristin!

Rachele said...

I am gonna look into it!

Rachele said...

Aw shucks!

Rachele said...

I am glad you are liking my doodles!

Rachele said...

Thank so much!

Rachele said...

That is the image that made me want to draw this, as well as numerous youtube and blog comments calling me a delusional sea cow. I also had the imgur removed because for copyright stuff. I think it was originally on Tumblr and I had that removed too. Don't mess with me haha!

Rachele said...

It was gross. It's gone now though! I had the image deleted.

Rachele said...

Probably not but I had my fun with it, which was probably not their goal! I usually just delete that stuff and don't bother responding or arguing. Not worth it!

Rachele said...

Amen!

Rachele said...

I love it too! Am I allowed to say I love my own stuff? Haha!

Rachele said...

Thanks Mandy!

Rachele said...

Amen!

Rachele said...

Thanks!

Jane Eccles said...

brilliant ! and I love sea cows

Kelly said...

Perhaps someone has mentioned it, but in case not- http://calmingmanatee.com/
A dose of manatee sweetness whenever it's needed.

Just Me Leah said...

Booyakasha is from Ali G (Sasha Baron Cohen) and means awesome.

Liaflower said...

Hell yes, you are :)

Buttercup Rocks said...

An admirable riposte. And the cutest drawing evah!

Unfortunately I was already aware.

Jackie Jardine said...

It's a damn shame that someone has taken your strength, bravery and pride and tried to turn it against you. I just cannot fathom why someone would take time out of their day to be such a horrible person...when you're so dedicated to spreading love and acceptance. Kudos for turning the whole thing around. No one has a right to do that to you, and you've certainly proved that!

Becky Bedbug said...

Ah yeah, manatee makes sense! They're cute... like you!

PrincessEatsPeaSoup said...

Some people just come from a place of anger and hate I guess. That shit will make you sick because wellbeing is made up of more than just the stuff you see. Bravo Rachel!

Megan Williams said...

This illustration and your reaction to the haters ('cause, they gonna hate) has brightened my day! You are my internet, blog, and overall life inspiration for radical acceptance and joy. Keep on keepin' on! You've got a loud, fattie cheerleader in me!

I want to make a sign for my front door for when she comes over. :)

Ragnar Almighty said...

Yeeeah ... ignore all those valid health risks and focus on a half-assed insult. You really are delusional.

Richard Willow said...

You do have a point sea cow, I'm a daily heroin and alcohol user and often people judge me for it. But I say fuck them, I am actually very healthy, I was born with a condition that makes me more prone to consuming these drugs and this is the way I am. In fact I implore other drug addicts to reject society's pressure to seek treatment and continue living their lives however their bodies tell them too.

stia said...

This post really speaks for itself, you are a fat delusional seacow.

eugenio said...

LMAO at your life

kindly yours said...

Emphasis on the word delusional. You claim that 'there is not a thin person inside me', where we can obviously see from the x-ray of the obese person that the excess fat is really squishing the thin person (skeleton, organs) inside.

They are offensive, it's inappropriate, but you still did not back up your claims or justify your opinion of 'not having a thin person inside' at all, and you might ask 'why would I have to', and the reason is simple as follows; It's a bold claim and evidence is against it.

Sarah Mills said...

It turned out amazing! I love it! :)

unitedstatesofbecky said...

Dude, I do not even get how or why some random person would be like "I do not agree with what this person says; I should try to make them feel bad." That is seriously weird. I think this person - whoever they are - probably has some unfortunate body issues her (or him) self. But dude, sea cows are awesome and so adorable and lovable and well...you want to hug them, right? :)

Mrs.AshleyL said...

This blog is amazing! I have never liked blogs but I can't seem to go a day without check'n out what Rachele's up to. I'm not as overweight and I know that doesn't matter but I'm still chubby and not a perfect super model. But guess what, I have a wonderfully charmed life and Rachele helps me realize that. She makes me finally get daring with my style like I knew I always should of done. I am a Vet Tech (Animal Nurse) so I'm so in love with animals, everything from cats to sea cows. Rachele is a blessing and I'm so glad I found her blog :)

Nicole said...

so I got called a delusional fatty tonight and of course smiled and thought of this. it makes me happy. I wish it came in t-shirt form. :)

Anonymous said...

A "sea cow" or manatee is not the same as a dugong, though I see how you would be confused. They are very similar.

Laura said...

Probably my favourite post on the internet, ever. xx
