While Carrie Fisher has spent the last month or so positively killing it in her Force Awakens press tour, there’s been a gross backlash to her resurgence. Because there’s a depressing number of people out there who still can’t look at a 59-year-old woman without being grossed out that she’s not still 19 and perpetually wearing a metal bikini. This public body shaming, and the need to state an opinion of how well a celebrity has or has not aged, is nothing new for Fisher. In 2011, when she was promoting her HBO special, she shared that she does, in fact, Google herself, and that it pretty much always sucks. One anonymous internet creep compared her to Elton John, and she responded on her blog with the drop dead perfect suggestion to “Blow my big bovine tiny dancer cock.”
Now that the debate over whether or not Fisher is attractive enough to be looked at by strangers is back in full swing, she’s back with more useful suggestions. And now that she’s on Twitter and has developed a unquenchable love affair with emojis, they are basically works of art.

Fisher has a relationship with her body that seems to be pretty utilitarian, with a nice “fuck you” spin.
My body is my brain bag, it hauls me around to those places & in front of faces where theres something to say or see pic.twitter.com/T2TXiEyl17— Carrie Fisher (@carrieffisher) December 29, 2015
You don’t like her body? Well it’s just a goddamn brain bag, so why the hell should she care?
