Sharper than a Sword

I’ve never had body image issues.

Today, for the first time, someone shouted “she’s fat” across the playground as we were leaving.

The altercation left some stranger judging me when in actuality, if the two women minded their own business, there wouldn’t have been any problem.

I then walked out of the play area as a group of ten year old thugs (yes… young thugs) called me “Karen”…

Because I’m white? As if they understood ANY of what these riots where about? As if they understood the use of the term “Karen” towards someone.

The thickness of disrespect and hate in that area could have cut anyone’s circulation…

I’m feeling all sorts of things about this crap of today!!

  1. I was raised to pick on people’s ideas and actions, if frustrated or irritated by them, and not on things someone can’t change, like their appearance. I really dislike our current bully culture.

    • The hypocrisy is just as toxic! If you don’t want bullied, don’t do it to others. I know that’s not a hard concept… but, little of our youth understand basic common curtesy.

  2. My own remark to such ill mannered louts was to say “Maybe I’m fat, but you’re ugly and I can lose weight!” Yeah, it was probably wiser to keep your opinion to yourself, especially if there were violence implied. But today is a fresh day – let it go and feel sorry for them. They have big problems apparently.
