Silly Quick Hit

The fat haters seem to have put their foot on the accelerator this week and at time the hate and shame has bordered on overwhelming. I'm not linking to any of it because I don't want to ruin your day. It struck me that there's a solution that sounds pretty good for both fat people and fat haters.

Ship all the fatties to the moon.

For starters we'll all weigh less on there, which should ease the minds of the haters. For another thing we'll all be on the moon and they won't have to look at us any more.

But it's actually a sweet deal for us fatties too because we won't have to deal with any of their crap. We can concentrate on building a rad fatty colony on the moon. We could even rename the moon the Fatosphere*! How cool would that be?

Now we could start off with just rad fatties on the moon, but no one would be excluded. Thin fat allies would be more than welcome. And we could invite every oppressed person in the world to join us in building an awesome colony on the moon where people are treated as people. We could have an awesome time playing with the reduced gravity and eat moon cheese all day.

So come on fat haters; start using all that hate and anger productively. Channel it into building the technology we'd need to live on the moon and we could get there no problem.

I want my rad fatty colony on the moon. And I'd kinda like it sooner rather than later.

*I have to admit, that wasn't my idea. Props go to my boyfriend Sam for that little bit of awesomeness.

Quick Hit: Just think about it for a second.

So I made the mistake of reading the comments over at this awesome post.

Dear Fat-Haters, trolls, and anyone who believes people can lose weight "easily if only they would try"; if it's so easy to lose weight then why are there so many diet companies and plans?. Surely if it was so damn easy to lose weight we would have found the one magic way to make everyone thin and stuck to it? And if that were the case wouldn't everyone be thin already?

And another things; hate and shame is never going to make people thin. If it did I promise you there wouldn't be a thin person on the planet. There is enough vitriol spouted daily that fate shame and hatred has reached such a concentration in our atmosphere that fat people in remote locations away from western media would have been made thin already. Hate does not make a person thin, and it certainly doesn't make them healthy. All it does is make their lives more miserable.

Angry making comments made me angry,
