Dear Maura Kelly,
I would really love to know how you could get away with writing this piece of shit
. I just read the original article *and* the update and I must say that YOU MAKE ME SICK! What the fuck were you thinking in even writing that article?! It is NOT OK.
I have been overweight/obese most of my life (started getting pudgy in 4th grade...) and I have struggled with it. In recent years, I actually lost 50 lbs (yea, go me!) but I still have a looooong way to go. I'll have you know that I am part of a community on LJ for people like me, and for you to tell us that we are not healthy is just appalling. There are people in that community who have run 5K's and done Triathlons. Have *you* done that? Probably not.
So FUCK YOU for saying we're not healthy. Yes, a good chunk of us might not healthy... but neither are the people who are in what's considered "normal" weight ranges!
As for you being grossed out at the sight of two fat people kissing, if you don't like it, don't watch!
I wonder what would happen if you changed the word overweight to, say, lesbian, or black? (Thank you to Amanda Marsh
for this thought) Would you have still written the article?
In response to your "apology" You have dug yourself so far into a hole that there is NO WAY TO COME OUT OF IT! You are forever stuck in that hole and I will *never* help you out of it.
