OMG, the wonderful world of interwebs and it's people has yet again managed to "brighten" my day. This time it's because a fat girl got a modelling contract, and the world is now screaming how she is apparently promoting obesity. WTF.
Common sense truly is disappearing. I've looked at pictures of skeletal junkie models most of my life, but has it never occurred to me that THEY have been promoting LIFESTYLE. I just thought they were skinny ladies walking as clothes horses.
This statement makes no logic. If someone thinks that pic of a lady with larger lumps might sell their products, then, that would be their choice. In no way do I see that it automatically means that this is somehow promoting obesity, or make me wanna go gorge myself into the size of a mountain, just 'cos I saw a pic.
These people who use this logic better stop watching Jeremy Kyle, as it promotes chav-lifestyle, or Jerry Springer Show, as it promotes having sex with transsexuals and their gay/straight friends and siblings, then having a punch up. Or watching Dexter promoting killing criminals.
I find it rather patronising, and also makes you wonder have these people never taken personal responsibility over their actions.....
Fat people have existed even in history, and will exist.
Thin people get sick and die too, it's not just for fatties. I know skinny people with diabetes, heart problems etc etc.....
We need to learn to tolerate others, and most of all, mind our own business. It is not taking anything away from anyone, if a lady happens to like her lumps, or *gasp* have confidence when bigger size....
