Fuck You Maura Kelly And Fuck You Marie Claire!
Take a good look at her folks. That is the face of hatred and self-loathing you’re looking at. Maura confesses in the half-assed apology tagged to the end of her original hate inspired speech, that she is an anorexic and that her own eating disorder and body issues were possibly to blame for all the mean things she said about fat people in her blog. To top it off, Marie Claire had the audacity to actually push this thing live on their site and plaster their name across the top of this hate filled message.
This is the face of a woman with an eating disorder. An aging anorexic dating-blogger who, in a desperate attempt to get hits, and somehow seem relevant to society, perpetrated what amounts to a public hate crime against the morbidly obese and over weight people of America. Which means pretty much all of us.
I’ll let Maura tell you what she thinks of you in her own words. In this quote Maura’s talking about the TV show Mike and Molly where two “fatties” (Maura’s word, not mine) fall in love in an Over Eaters Anonymous meeting.
“So anyway, yes, I think I’d be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other … because I’d be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything. To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room — just like I’d find it distressing if I saw a very drunk person stumbling across a bar or a heroine addict slumping in a chair.” (Note spelling of heroin.)
In typical know-nothing fashion she wrapped things up with, “I think obesity is something that most people have a ton of control over. It’s something they can change, if only they put their minds to it.”
This is a woman who spends her time coming up with articles like, “5 Ways To Feel Hot At Any Age” and “The 30 Year Old Orgasm Virgin.”
Maura Kelly even went to Dartmouth and majored in Psychology.
An Ivy League education doesn’t buy you compassion I guess.
