Okay! i love Marie Claire Just like the next girl but when they start Slamming people for the way they Look or how Fat they are is crossing the line thats exactly what….”Maura Kelly” Did! she crossed the line and Marie Claire Editors Condoned her hateful speech because they allowed her to post her Rant!. she is basically saying in her article that Obese People do not have the right to Love or Make-Out with each other because they have Rolls!!!
she thinks that because she was Anorexic she can make these hateful Comments! But that does not make it OK! I feel bad for Maura Kelly Really i do. Cuz do u know how many Plump Coworkers she has!? they will not respect her and even look her way because of what she said she wrote in the heat of the Moment! SMH!
Judge for yourself. Here are some highlights:
“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.”
But don’t worry guys, she’s got nothing against fat people! See:
Now, don’t go getting the wrong impression: I have a few friends who could be called plump. I’m not some size-ist jerk. And I also know how tough it can be for truly heavy people to psych themselves up for the long process of slimming down. (For instance, the overweight maintenance guy at my gym has talked to me a little bit about how it seems worthless for him to even try working out, because he’s been heavy for as long as he can remember.)
Because really, if you’re overweight, it’s clearly your fault:
But … 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.
Shame on not only Maura Kelly, but the editor of Marie Claire for allowing this ridiculously pompous article to be published. If more women’s magazines (Marie Claire included) were more about giving women confidence regarding our inner beauty, we might just unite as a sex and work together instead of against each other – as you and I both know, women often do. It’s time women’s magazines step up to the plate and do just that. Because, for now, they aren’t really “women’s magazines” at all. They are simply catalogs likened to the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, aren’t they?! here are some of the Comments that Readers Submitted on the site ^.^
One commentor writes:
seriously? you are toxic. and marie claire has just alienated a huge portion of their readership for allowing this insensitive and ridiculous drivel to be published. i hope you, and the editors who let this be published, are fired. you’re not talking about health issues here – you’re using them as an excuse to slam people you don’t like. basically, for you, the bottom line seems to be that overweight people are unlovable and not entitled to be affectionate in public, lest they offend your oh-so-delicate sensibilities. no wonder you’ve never been in love. and, good luck with that NOW that you’ve opened your ignorant, shallow mouth.

I couldn’t even get past the first few paragraphs. I’m sorry you are disgusted by fat people. Sounds like you need to poke your eyes out. That way you won’t have to be “forced” to see things that displease you. You also may need to look up vapid. It’s a pretty accurate description for the little bit of your article I managed to stomach. It’s really not something one should strive for.. How did this ever get past an editor?? I will never buy Marie Claire again. That’s a promise.
I can so relate with the comments above i felt the same way. i Personally think they should Remove the Per say Person and Get a New writer cuz clearly the one they Hired is an Hateful person…. Here is a Song Maura kelly should be Listening to! Love just Appreciate the Curves dont hate!
Update: The Editors of Marie Claire Decided to post a new Blog about loving people of size SMH! it doesnt matter the damage is done. Like BP the mess has happened you can try to clean it up put as many PSA’s as u want but at the end of the day,everyone will still know its there and that it still Happened. here is the link on what they wrote.
Here is a quotePublic opinion, a vulgar, impertinent, anonymous tyrant who deliberately makes life unpleasant for anyone who is not content to be the average man.
