What really? What did they say, I've never heard this!

Remember her friend made a video saying people were assuming that the girl really was insecure about her skin tone but supposedly it wasn't true and the reason was she was grieving over the loss of her mother. Also Tommy Sotomayor made a video and of course he had to inject all of his insecurities into the situation.

Wow, I guess her friend really thought she was ugly after-all but liked how confident she was about it. 

And about Tommy Sotomayor, Eff him to the power of tenth. Once I found out that wasn't his real name and that he has been to jail 3 times. Everything he says is rubbish, well it's been rubbish but now it is rubbish sprinkled with a little nonsense.

No f8, Karyn's friend was defending her against those accusations and saying her suicide had nothing to do with insecurity over her skin tone. But a lot of people in the blogosphere or whatever were making those assumptions that Karyn suffered from low self esteem deep down despite her strong facade and that was the reason she killed herself.

Oh okay thx I misunderstood. Why the hell would people think that. I actually thought the opposite with my shallow azz. I thought how could someone so pretty do that. Then I thought man pretty kill themselves all the time.

reminds me of:

Please Don't Ask Mindy Kaling Where Her Confidence Comes From


Please Dont Ask Mindy Kaling Where Her Confidence Comes From1Expand

Mindy Kaling landed the new cover of Parade magazine, and in an interview, she talks about the attention paid to her appearance:

“I always get asked, ‘Where do you get your confidence?’ I think people are well meaning, but it’s pretty insulting. Because what it means to me is, ‘You, Mindy Kaling, have all the trappings of a very marginalized person. You’re not skinny, you’re not white, you’re a woman. Why on earth would you feel like you’re worth anything?’

And some more thoughts on othering:

“There are little Indian girls out there who look up to me, and I never want to belittle the honor of being an inspiration to them. But while I’m talking about why I’m so different, white male show runners get to talk about their art.”

Yep, that's the problem.

If she was siting around feeling bad about herself and working some job out of the spotlight - people would be fine with it. But because she's OUT THERE, has fun, meets people etc ... people feel they have the right to talk about her weight and skin color and put her down.

People saying they are concerned about her health ... is crap. I don't believe it they really care about her health ... she just doesn't 'look right'.

I know women that have much more of an 'acceptable' appearance and they don't have the confidence Gaby has in her index finger.

I've said it before - it's alllll about how you genuinely feel about yourself.

So being a white male who is fit is the only one worthy of confidence? Humans are disgusting and I love Gabby in AHS and Mindy is helluva attractive!

None of that sounded confident to me. She strikes me as the fat person who makes fun of them self before anyone else can. Sounds like she deals with being fat, not that she's super confident.

My speculation.

And people question her because she's fat and ugly to most people. If beyonce was fat and ugly, they'd ask her too. Actually, I think many people get asked this question. Gabby isn't the first.
