To the Editor:
It is one thing to think fat people who eat fast food are contributing to their own demise, but it is something separate to publish that opinion in a paper read by thousands of people who are either fat, or have eating disorders because of the negative opinion of fat people.
Why is it acceptable to see a 90-pound girl enjoy a double Big Mac and super-sized fries, while it isn’t OK to see a 300-pound guy mow the same shit down? It seems that as long as you LOOK ideal, you can act in ways that are otherwise seen as socially disgusting.
Eating is part of an individual’s lifestyle, and has nothing to do with other people. Were these alleged fatties wearing T-shirts that said “PITY ME, I’M FAT?” If not, I doubt they were looking for sympathy.
Quality of food was mentioned as a problem for said writer as well. High in satiety or not, who fucking cares? If a fat girl was eating salad, you’d probably think, “Haha, I’ll bet she’s got a Snickers in her pocket.”
It is opinions like this that promote eating disorders and depression in people and these factors are direct links to the weight problems our society faces today.
The 90-pound girl eating that Big Mac probably just purged in the bathroom by the Cardio Annex. How’s that for satiety?
