To clarify my Twitter rant:
I think it’s deplorable that the media portrays grossly overweight actresses as positive role models for young girls for being “comfortable with their bodies” when this country has the highest obesity rate in the world, and growing.
This is not an attack on people who are overweight. This is a statement about our culture and the way the media covers itself for being accused so often of setting unrealistic expectations for women.
While I find the push to be unhealthily skinny to be a horrible thing, I doubt the answer is to push the agenda in the opposite direction, which is to say that it’s okay to eat an entire submarine sandwich in bed, so long as it looks funny on camera.
The radical idea of “eating healthy” and “exercising” is apparently too terrifying to grasp.
Best of luck, Michelle Obama.
Certainly, this was intended to be more light-hearted than the way it came off, so I will apologize to anyone who took it the wrong way, but also say, “Piss off. It was written as a joke, and only took a more serious turn once I had to defend myself to you fucking hobgoblin creature fucks.”
That is all.
