Who in the Sam Hill approved this guanofest of an ‘article’, and how soon will that person be in an unemployment line?
You see, Laura Day of Oprah.com was given precious web space to say on an otherwise usually reasonably respectable news source that if you’re fat, it’s because you’re self-medicating with food for someone else’s emotional problems. And it’s true! Because she says it is! And because she uses lots and lots of exclamation points!
It’s an unquestionable fact(!) that other peoples’ emotional issues are germs that lie in wait for us all, like athlete’s foot in a shower. That’s why so many fat people have thin spouses. The fat one is eating the thin partner’s emotional problems.
I guess the good news is that fat people have no emotional problems at all. It’s all the thin people who are emotionally scrambled! But being fat is still our fault because we haven’t placed sufficient boundaries around ourselves to keep from overeating for other, more screwed-up people.
Seriously, this sort of twaddle ought never to be published by any vaguely respectable source save as a target for the most rigorous ridicule.
For publishing this nauseating pile of steaming horse hockey, suck it, CNN!
