If nothing else, Jen (aka Miss PC) gives me fodder for my blogs. I thought it’d check out her site, since I haven’t visited since winter, and I was wondering if she had thrown in the towel and shut her site down. I know, wishful thinking.
It was still there, so I scrolled through a few of her pathetic reviews and unattractive photos of herself and found this gem (of course I had to do a search, since she had a “donotlink” url in a pitiful attempt to lower the hits on said article):
I doubt I would even have found this article without Miss PC’s help, but the gist of it is that Linda Kelsey does not like fat people. Honestly, who really does? And I’m not talking about normal fat. I’m talking obese, since a little fat is not unhealthy. I have had a weight problem for most of my life, and I’ve always been relatively healthy. My doctors are always impressed with my cholesterol levels. But I think people confuse fat with obese. No one, and I really mean no one, wants to see an obese woman wearing some of the clothing that Linda describes in her article. It truly can make you lose your appetite to see fat rolls upon fat rolls. If you have that much extra, cover it up. And no, you don’t have to wear a burlap bag, as many of the snide comments, as well as Miss PC, mocked, but clothes that fit your body and might even complement the extra weight. You’re not doing yourself (or anyone else) any favors by wearing something that makes other people either laugh or retch.
Miss PC then went on about how she posted a pic of herself in a bikini and the world kept spinning. All I could think of is that she must be really conceited to think that the world revolves around her and that if she did something so shocking like wearing a bikini, everyone would stop what they were doing and stare. I looked at the photo, expecting the worst. What I saw was a smiling fat woman with bad hair, wearing a modest two piece bathing suit. Most of her rolls were covered, with only her cellulite obvious. I guess she doesn’t realize that a bikini is not the same thing as a two piece. Pretty much the definition of a bikini is small scraps of material designed to only cover your nipples, crotch and ass. Now, had she been sporting a thong and were morbidly obese, I’m sure she would have gotten reactions a bit closer to what she feared (or expected). I searched for a photo to illustrate my point but couldn’t find one hideous enough.
Last year, Miss PC jumped my shit about this topic, assuming that since I made one negative remark to an unhealthy but proud obese woman that I must hate all fat people. There might be people out there who would call me fat, so naturally it doesn’t mean I hate all fat people. But I am disgusted by all obese people, especially if those people are proud of their sizes and have no interest in dropping any of that poundage. It doesn’t matter who you are, obese IS unhealthy, and it’s ugly. No amount of politically correct bullshit is going to change that fact.
You keep being a fattist, Linda. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll have an impact on some obese girls out there who dress like hookers. Maybe they’ll make a positive change in their lives…or at the very least cover up a bit of that fat flesh.
