So, I saw a commercial for the Tyra Show the other day when I friend and I were flipping through the channels. On the screen was an advertisement for a possible show. It said something to this effect...
"Do you know someone who was passed up for a promotion or job because of their weight? Or do you think people shouldn't be in high ranking/important jobs because they are overweight? If so you could be on the Tyra Show."
I kind of made a nasty face while we were reading that. I said, "I hope that's not always true, but I sometimes think nasty things like that." I'm not perfect, in fact I'm no where near perfect. I'll admit it; I've always been judgmental of people that are overweight. Maybe it's because I've been lumped into that group for so long and I never wanted to be there. (I mean, I should have just gotten off my ass years ago and taken care of the problem, but I was too lazy.)
Anyway, I know that overweight people aren't lazy. I know there are many reasons for people to be overweight, and I'm not a totally hateful b*tch, but I think awful thoughts about people from time to time.
So we kind of got into a discussion with my friend about our different views about over weight people and if they are lazy or have a medical issue....etc, etc. I really can't share what we were saying because we are both incredibly foul mouthed and the whole conversation would be asteriks!
Anyway, it really just got me thinking about what other people thought. I don't think it's right for someone to be passed up for a job because of size or any feature, color, etc. I just wonder what other people think. Don't worry. I won't be offended. Anything you could say, I've probably thought at one point in my life!
