Dear fellow human beings...

Dear fellow human beings,

Yes, I know I am fat.  No, it is not necessary to point this out to me or make snide and condescending comments as I pass by – I’m fat, not deaf.  I don’t ask for any special privileges or do anything to hurt you (besides exist in your world).  If you could just treat me like a fellow human being who has feelings, that would be great – I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

Much obliged,

Fat chick

P.S.  Yes, I know it is unhealthy to be fat. Yes, I am trying to do something about it and am making slow and steady progress.  Please note, however, that every time someone decides to verbally (or visually) show how much my existence disgusts them it just makes the process even harder as an emotional eater.  So congratulations, you just could have contributed to my being fat even longer (except you won’t because I won’t let you have that power over me.)  So there.

4/9 - Due to the necessity of some people to be complete jerks (all the more proving my point) I have disabled comments on this entry.  People have a right to their option, ie. this post was because "I have a desperate need for attention"... (um, hello - the whole point of this is that I don't want the extra attention!) however the main reason for even writing this post in the first place was simply to be a voice for the other people out there like me who are treated like lesser class citizens just because of how we look and either are afraid to speak up (and who could blame them?) or don't have a medium to do so in. End of story.
