I just read a blog that really made me sad. A couple of months ago this blog was made a Blog of Note, and I have been following it ever since. The author is trying to lose weight (she started at 214 and is down to about 185). It had it's funny and witty moments.
However, yesterday she posted a blog about her recent experience at the airport, where she saw two very "large" ladies being pushed in wheelchairs. It made her "angry". They let themselves get so fat that their body couldnt handle the weight...you get the point. Now this blogger has over 1600 followers, so there were a lot of comments. And a majority of them said things like the "I am with you on hating the fat wheelchair people." It was full of fat bashing. I was surprised to find it on that blog...bc as a girl who has struggled with her weight...you would think she would understand that "pushing away from the table", isn't really the issue...or all it takes to lose weight.
And because the blogger world is a relatively free speech kinda place...she and everyone else has a right to their opinion. And so do I.
So I unsubscribed to her blog.
