Le sigh, PETA. Not again. I thought we went over how truly awful and fucked up it is to target kids based on their weight? I guess not! So, here we go again because shouting into the void obviously gets me off! This is definitely something to address in therapy!
1) Not all fat kids are unhealthy.
2) Not all skinny kids are healthy.
3) When you target people based on weight, it’s fucked up and cruel. Fat kids already get made fun of enough, so much so that a lot of them just kill themselves. Wait… maybe that’s your plan?? One less meat eater!
4) Campaigns like this actively encourages victim blaming. I know this is aimed towards parents, but so many kids will see it, and they don’t have the resources to respond in a way other than self blame, self hate, or shame. Like, imagine if this were a rape awareness campaign, and the picture was of a girl in a short skirt with the tag line: DON’T ASK FOR IT. WEAR PANTS. You know? Who exactly are you helping? I’m confused.
Yes, PETA, cutting down meat is great for your health, you can’t argue against that. I’m fat and my cholesterol is the best my doctor has seen all year! But this campaign has NOTHING to do with health, and everything to do with shame. It’s repugnant and depressing. I think PETA does lots of great work, I do, but it’s stuff like this that makes me want to holler, throw up both my hands! I encourage PETA (and really everyone ever) to read Health at Every Size, learn about our so-called “Obesity Epidemic”, and read up on the big business of fat hate. Or maybe PETA already knows that and they’re just capitalizing? Either way, it fucking sucks.
See? Other vegans hate them too. Who exactly PETAs speaking for, I don’t fucking know anymore.
