Recently, Maura Kelly, a blogger at Marie Claire, wrote a post about the new TV show Mike & Molly where she said, in part:
I think I'd be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other
To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically
displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room
Ouch! [Insert guttural animal noises]
You can read the post here, as well as Kelly's apology and admission that she suffers from her own body issues, including a previous bout with anorexia.
Today, I am grateful ~
1/ For my healthy relationship with food. At some points, I may have painted a picture of myself eating Sprinkles cupcakes in a dark corner while washing them down with red wine but I was joking. I only drink white wine. (Kidding!)
2/ That I don't live near Maura Kelly. I might not be fat but I did gain a few post-wedding pounds and I wouldn't want her judging me as I, G0d forbid, walked across the room.
3/ That, while I might have been taken aback by Maura Kelly's blog post, she's allowed to voice her opinion. G0d Bless America and G0d Bless Blogs!
