I, legit, have a new favorite TikTok personality, and that person is, Body Positivity Advocate, Ms. Mary Fran Donnelly — have you heard of her?
She is a social studies teacher with a bit of a potty mouth (be warned if you have kiddos around).
She is completely relatable, has an infectious personality, and she is someone I could totally hang with on a regular basis.
Mary has been posting her body-positive love-yourself messages on TikTok for about a year, but she just got noticed for her series of videos on traveling as a fat person.
Good Lord, I can relate, and she is SPOT ON when it comes to EVERYTHING for fluffy people things like sitting in an airplane, trying to shower, and even — the dreaded — chairs that you are afraid will crumble underneath your weight.
She makes light of the situation, because that’s what we have to do sometimes — the alternative is crying, which just might add a layer of ruin to the circumstances.
I cope through humor. I was making light of a situation that is a very real stress for fat, plus-size people… my sister and I could only laugh at how absurd it was.Mary Fran Donnelly via Buzzfeed
In one of the hilarious videos, Mary Fran (as she calls herself) takes us on a tour of her hotel bathroom, including the toilet, which was obviously designed by a skinny-minnie.
Don’t worry — you’ll barely fit.Mary Fran Donnelly
And, let’s talk about those hotel bath towels, which aren’t even big enough to properly cover your lady bits!
If you’ve ever been on this side of 200 pounds, you will totally get where she’s coming from — and you just might laugh so hard you’ll snort. LOL!
I don’t travel alone because I worry about strangers being upset about sitting next to me on a plane. Will the seat be uncomfortable? Will the seat belt fit? Will the towel fit at the hotel? Will the chairs at the pool hold me? Will the tables at the hotel restaurant be comfortable?”Mary Fran Donnelly via Buzzfeed
This is why you will hear her sister snort-laughing behind the camera — she gets it!
MF — as she has named herself — is totally just like all of us fluffier figures, and you HAVE to go check out her TikTok page — but make sure you have at least an hour, because you won’t want to leave!!
