I would say that I'm sorry for exposing you to what you will find by following the link, but I'm not.

WHY DO I ALWAYS CLICK THE LINK?????

"Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them."
---Margaret Atwood

College Senior Is Sexually Assaulted While Group Of Dudes Cheer.
(This is a link to the discussion on Jezebel; Feministing's comments are here.)

The comments are what simultaneously break my heart and make me want to KILL.  Women saying that they're glad they didn't come forward when they were assaulted because of the way this woman is being verbally abused, and my favorite, men saying that she wasn't attractive enough to assault.

Did you read that?  SHE WAS NOT "ATTRACTIVE ENOUGH" TO ASSAULT.

OMGWTFBBQ.

(And while I was writing this, I saw this one on CNN: Teen sexually assaulted girl on school bus.)

Before I say anything else, ANYTHING, I want say this:  I AM FAT.  I am going to say the word fat a lot in this post, so if you're afraid of it, don't read any further.

FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT FAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been fat since I was a kid.  I was a fat teenager.  I am a fat adult.

Having said that, I am tired of other fat people.  Not all fat people, mind you.  Just the fat people who are constantly jockeying for a table at the oppression olympics.

To those fat people:

You're fat.  I get it.  Move along.  Your fat, and your issues surrounding your fat, do not give you the right to accost other people.  Just like people do not have the right to get up in your face to tell you that you're fat and you're going to drop dead tomorrow of a heart attack, you do not have the right to get up in their faces about being thin, wanting to lose weight, or anything else.

If people want to lose weight, it is not about you.  Unless they actually walk up to you and tell you the song really IS about you, it's not.  Even if someone wants to lose weight because he or she doesn't feel attractive, it still isn't about you.  It's about them.

Now for those thin people who are reading this and thinking, "Ha ha!  Take that, fatties!":

Reread this post with the word "fat" replaced by "thin."  Get the picture?  You can move right the fuck along too.

Love and cupcakes,

Lex
