    I say screw to hell with any dumb-ass that would ever spend the time to think or mention it.

Except they're your friends.

And they're your family.

And they're doing it out of love.

And they're doing it out of concern.

And they want to know why you can't be normal.

And they want to know why you can't look like them.

I mean, listen to yourself. Here in the midst of solidarity you go on an anti-dairy rant - despite it all, you can't help but give dietary advice based on your experience. Three spare sentences separate "eat for health and happiness" and "Also, I lay off the cheese and dairy."

My cousin (150lb overweight) has been shunned by her sister (100lb overweight) and her aunt (75lb overweight) because she started posting body-acceptance images on Facebook. The 100lb-overweight cousin posted this and the 150lb overweight one - her big sister - replied "I was going to post this but I was too busy eating twinkies."

The psychology is so deep most people can't even see it even when we're talking about it.

Only person on my feed who didn't argue with it? And keep in mind, I didn't post it - is the former counselor at an eating disorder clinic.
