"Although your bright hair diverts our eyes from the rest of your body being stuffed and jammed into those corsets, sadly it’s only a temporary distraction."

*sigh* The caption for this picture is copied verbatim from the website I originally saw it on. That’s (I hope obviously) not MY thoughts on the picture.

Granted, I’m not overly fond of the acid-colored dreds, but IT IS THEIR HAIR and they are entitled to do whatever they wish with it. It’s the “rest of your body being stuffed and jammed into those corsets” comment that really bothers me here. So what? Because these women are not reed-thin they aren’t allowed to wear whatever they wish? Because they are not Twiggy, they aren’t allowed to wear something that makes them feel attractive and sexy? WRONG!

How many times do we have to say it before we get it through the thick skulls of the general public: NOBODY was placed on this Earth with a mandate to decorate your world!!! Get over it! If you don’t like the way someone looks, look the other direction. These are living, breathing, feeling, probably caring human beings who have the same rights and privileges as everyone else in the world! For the time being, at least, there are no laws stating that fat people aren’t equal to thin people.

Personally, I am NOT AT ALL fond of the current trend for young men to be walking around in jeans that sag below their ass so that their underpants show. That doesn’t give me the right harass them or to invade their privacy by taking their picture, without permission, and post it on the web, again without permission.

Aarrgghh! Can’t we just let people be?

So, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been gone. For a while. I just seemed to lose my muse for a while. Not really sure why. Anyway, now I’m back with a vengeance! LOL

It seems like everywhere I turn lately, there are examples of fat prejudice and it pisses me off! A prime example, “Greasy Bear” (Brandon Davis) tweeting that his ex, Mischa Barton is now “the fattest person on the planet!” Now, to be totally fair here, Mr. Bear claims that it was a false account and HE wasn’t the one that posted those hateful comments. BUT! Paris Hilton (who’s Twitter account is confirmed as being real and is a friend of “Greasy Bear”) claimed at one point that it WAS real, AND given his penchant for nasty comments about people (women in particular), and the fact that those tweets were deleted from the “fake” account, I just don’t know whether I believe him or not. Something definitely smells rotten in Denmark, yanno? I don’t know if it really is his account or not, and really his tweets are just a jumping off point for this post anyway.

So. Waif-thin Mischa Barton has turned into “Mischa the Hefer…” I don’t see it. Seriously, she doesn’t look fat to me. A little “thicker” than she was before, yeah; but as thin as she was, she had room to gain without being anywhere near overweight. If you google “Mischa Barton fat,” you get one or two pictures of her looking a little less-than-reed-thin when compared to her OC days, but the vast majority of the pictures are of her looking pretty much as thin as ever and are concentrating on the cellulite on her thighs. As if a little cellulite is some sort of crime! Please! If that’s the case, 90% of the women in America, including some of the “normal weight” and “underweight” women, are guilty. Sheesh. Does NOBODY remember the pictures of size-2 Jennifer Love Hewitt with cellulite?

Does Ms. Barton NOT deserve a break from the killer weight-loss-diet-and-exercise routine she must have maintained when she was starring in The OC? If she’s not working RIGHT NOW, or preparing for a role, do we really have ANY right to criticize her for “letting herself go?” Of course, I don’t think we have any right to criticize anyone’s body. It’s their body. If they don’t want to starve themselves thin, it’s up to them. And yes, IMHO, that includes those that have chosen careers in the public eye!! I don’t care if it is Britney SpearsJessica Simpson, Kelly Clarkson, Mischa Barton, Kirsty Alley, or Oprah. Even Brandon Davis! I don’t care who it is, if you look, you can find less-than-flattering pictures of every celebrity out there!
