I cannot say how much I hate this statement. People keep going on and on about how people need to love "big" people, and how bullied they are, then they throw in this statement. They fail to realize the consequences of this statement as well. There are so many people out there that are naturally skinny, that feel the sting of these words. Just because they are skinny doesn't mean they should be criticized for their body either. Much of the criticism of skinny people is just as nasty and cruel, but people don't generally discuss the topic in the same way as they discuss the "fat people" subject. People may argue, "well skinny people don't have the public shame, or the bullying that fat people do so it doesn't matter." But that, to put it plainly, is stupid. So private shame is better? Keeping it all internal is worse? And the bullying does happen, just not in an as open way. I don't know, it just bothers me, all shapes and sizes are beautiful. Opinions?
