Pet peeves are a funny things aren't they? They can be anything to anyone. You want to know mine?
Let me tell you about it.
People are throwing their opinions around like a bad case of genital crabs. I don't know why a hateful opinion about another persons body needs to be voiced so strongly and have such a strong effect on society. For example: dropping a girl out of a talent competition because of her body size is ridiculous and sad that it is actually acceptable by so many especially in today's world. Our society has come so far in terms of intelligence yet we are still so stupid to judge someone by their appearance and body size.
We voice hateful opinions and destroy someones self worth without even thinking about it. These kind of acts and opinions aren't creating an idol or superstar, they're creating a fuel for the fire.
Hasn't it occurred to anyone that what others do with their body is THEIR choice? A choice we ALL need to and should accept. It's to be respected and not judged. So what if someone is living an unhealthy life? It's their life, their choice, what's it to you? You can still go on and eat your salads and go on to win the award for most known facts about edible grass, you still need to respect the fact that the "unhealthy" person is making a choice and it's none of mine, yours or anyone's business. For all you know that fat girl or guy you just made a stupid remark about has been working on trying to get into shape and has even lost a few pounds, and that stupid, careless comment you made has just destroyed all of his or her hard work and motivation being replaced with an all too familiar feeling of self-hate and discouragement.
Fat people know we are fat. There is no need to point it out, it's been pointed out to us most of our lives, everyday by friends, family, random strangers. We also have lives, families, jobs, responsibilities, it's not easy being pushed down by society everywhere! we can't concentrate on losing weight and being skinny with everything else on our plate. Hasn't it occurred to anyone that if negative and hateful comments about body size would work, there would be no fat people in the world, anywhere? Think about that for a minute.
Over and out,
