Can't stand.

I was going to write a warm/fuzzy about you all, and my birthday and gratitude and all that. But, it'll have to wait. So Some dumb bitch named MAURA KELLY (I capitalize to remember, because I have to remember) over at Marie Claire wrote an "article". Not sure if it would be called an article, or an op/ed piece. To me, it's just crap. She wrote about her abject horror at the show "Mike and Molly", which, in her opinion, is a show about morbidly obese people doing things. Um. She actually says she cannot watch the show, because she can't see morbidly obese people not only making out, but doing anything. She did admit to having some "plump" friends, so that makes her NOT A SIZEIST. My guess? Her plump friends are about sizes 6 or 8. So, the normal people of the world rose up, and as we do now, wrote about a thousand (actual, not a made up number) comments - most calling for her to get fired etc. She printed an "apology". NOT AN APOLOGY when you say "yes, but" a bunch of times, and offer weight loss advice. You, MAURA KELLY, are not a registered nurse, or dietician, or um.....anything. We fatties are fat, NOT STUPID. The magazine itself - MARIE CLAIRE - has yet to issue an apology, or statement, or retraction, or whatever. HEY MARIE CLAIRE, YOU PUBLISHED THAT SHIT - YOU ARE EQUALLY CULPABLE. At the very least, they need to fire that ignorant, hateful bitch. At best, they need to give me her email/address/phone number. I would love to give her a piece of my fat mind, and then break some fat fingers on her smug, skinny, likely fugly face. It's people like her that make my life about a million times more difficult than it needs to be. So, using my bloggy for something good here - I'm calling for a boycott of Marie Claire - until they print an apology and fire Maura Kelly.

Preach it! I am definitely boycotting Marie Claire. No purchases of Marie Claire for me. I will not even look at its advertisements.

Kathleen said...

Amen!

I'm with you... I won't be buying Marie Claire magazine.

Also, the proper term is "famine resistant".

Von said...

LOL you guys....but you get my drift.
Famine resistant. I'm going to have to borrow that!!

mikey said...

I'm in. No Marie Claire for me.

In fact, no Marie anything.

No Virgin Marie.

No Marie and her little lamb.

No pie from Marie Callenders.

I won't buy, rent or borrow Marie Claire. Even in fishnets...

On the right day. Maybe I'll say it again tomorrow, so that yesterday will be balanced.

I am going back in time, to make sure i HAVE NEVER bought a copy.

Jennifer said...

I have never purchased, nor ever will purchase, a copy. However... I'm feeling a tad guilty for watching Project Runway... Marie Claire is one of the sponsors. It's the finale, Von! I'll stop after that. :)

I hope you had a good b-day, Von! I looked for you on the train, but alas, no Von. I'm sure I was on a much earlier one than you.

I felt the same way about Penthouse Forum after it describing the sexual exploits of men with large penises, like there was no hope for a man of average girthiness delivering a pizza to a sorority house.

I have destroyed all those copies of Marie Claire I bought before I knew better.

Well, not only will I not buy any copies of Marie Claire - I will also refrain from having intimate relations with Marie's mother. Witholding affection may be a seriously harsh move - but if anyone can get Marie to take responsibility for her actions, it`s Mrs. Claire.
