You know…sometimes you can just NOT say things.

Via Huffington Post: Public Food-Shaming Is The Insidious Type Of Street Harassment No One Is Talking About20140724-110802-40082515.jpgI debated posting this, because SOMETIMES I wonder if all this hand-wringing about bullying/shaming is overkill and maybe we all just need to toughen up a bit.

At the same time…people are fucking awful and I can’t believe they say these things to another human being.

And I’m not gonna lie, I still remember my mother’s coworker asking “Why are you so fat?” when I was a kid, or a neighbor telling me I didn’t need another doughnut because I was “big enough.” I was like 10. Shit stays with you. (Yes, they were assholes, and their opinions don’t matter to me, and I’ll eat a goddamn doughnut now if I want to, LIKE AN ADULT. But…it stays with you.)

So… I don’t know. Maybe don’t be a dick? That’s sort of my point here.

P.S. I left the ad for Breyer’s Gelato in my screen grab of that image, because how hilariously perfect is that?
