Having struggled with my weight for almost my entire life, I understand how painful it can be when someone just assumes the following about you because you are overweight:

  • You are lazy
  • You are stupid
  • You are ugly
  • You have no self-control
  • You smell
  • You are worthless
  • You deserve no consideration or respect
  • You are not a human being

I’ve been the recipient of all of those misconceptions (well, maybe not the “smell” one), and it disgusts me when people make a snap judgment on someone just because they are not “skinny”.  So, when something like PETA’s latest “campaign” comes along, it just makes me want to SCREAM:

PETA
PETA's latest billboard campaign for vegetarianism

So, “whales”, huh?  Very nice.   A campaign against meat-eaters AND overweight people.  On behalf of myself and everyone else larger than the socially acceptable size 2:  PETA – you can go f*** yourselves.  You just continually reinforce the fact that you’re a bunch of media-whore morons.

ps – if the “whales” are so disgusting, why would you want to save them?
