To start off, I want to say that I’m grateful for those of you who have been sharing your opinions and thoughts.
So, as much as I am trying to be sympathetic to the responses that people are making to my post on “Fat Teens Can’t Hunt” I think that it’s gotten to a point where I need to address and clarify where I’m coming from so people stop thinking I’m some stupid tart having a good laugh at the expense of overweight people.
I’ve definitely fallen to pressure before, I think we all have at some point in our lives, and you know what – it sucks to be made to feel different (albeit, probably for some stupid reason), but I think that if you’re able to accept yourself and feel comfortable in your own skin, then why should you care what other people see you for?
First off, I’m not trying to criticize anyone for wanting to go on the show, I’m just saying that in a holistic approach, the show just sounds like a shitty way to make fun of overweight people. Second, if you’re going to make an argument that you’re going on the show to ‘experience’ a different culture, I somehow can’t help but think that this is not the way to go about doing that. Worst part about the show is millions of people will watch as you starve to the point where anything looks good enough to eat…
Why would you even put yourself through that? So you can lose a couple pounds? What will you really walk away with? Are you going to feel proud that you’ve actually proven the title wrong and that you indeed CAN hunt? It absolutely astounds me what is considered entertainment anymore, and even more so the people who are willing to put it all out there, and for what? Vanity? Fame? Revenge?… have you no humility?
I’m not asking that you to agree with me, but I’m asking that you do understand where I’m coming from.
