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:
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?
