So I first learned about this article from a fellow blogger..
This article was recently published in the Marie Claire magazine.
No, I am not huge. Am I a little overweight? Yeah, most people are.
I may not be morbidly obese but I was still very offended by the article.
I struggle with my weight and so does my entire family.
Honestly, I have NO idea what this writer was thinking. I have never read such a demeaning article before in my life. Here are some of the worst quotes from the article-
In reference to the picture above, the author said:
"Hmm, being overweight is one thing — those people are downright obese!"
Another that I found really offending:
"So anyway, yes, I think I'd be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other ..."
Oh! And I was just going over the article and this one has got to be the worst:
"I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room"
I just don't understand. Seeing 2 obese people kiss is no different then seeing anyone else kiss; They are human beings just like everyone else.
I want to know what the point of the article was. It seems the point was to simply offend all obese or overweight people.
Oh, and just incase your wondering the author of the article is Maura Kelly.
I am not a Marie Claire subscriber but occasionally if I liked the cover story I would purchase a copy. Sorry Marie Claire, but I will not be purchasing a copy any time soon. I don't want to support a company that thinks it's ok to attack certain groups of people.
These are just my opinions, but I'd love to hear yours..
