(USA TODAY) – A Fargo, N.D., woman says she will give trick-or-treaters that she deems ‘moderately obese’ a letter instead of candy this Halloween.
“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it,” the woman said in a morning radio interview with Y-24. She wouldn’t identify herself.
In the first place, USA TODAY, why are you giving real estate to some whackjob who calls in to a radio show? This isn’t a story.
In the second place, oh just fuck you. Should kids not eat a lot of candy? Sure. But this isn’t about the general health of the population. This isn’t about encouraging stores to stop carrying certain products or talking about the marketing of sugary treats on kids’ shows or lobbying Congress to stop subsidizing the shit out of corn.
This is about you using a fun holiday to get a holier-than-thou power trip going so you can feel suprerior to fat kids and their parents. This is about you pointing out to everyone else on the planet how much better than everyone else YOU are. This is about showing off, and kicking down, and you’re no better than the playground bully you probably used to be.
