Crowdsourcing: Responses to #fatpeoplenightmares

I have been following people on Twitter counteracting the heinous hashtag #fatpeoplenightmares, which was apparently being used to spew fat hate (I'll be honest, I haven't had enough sanity points to look at the collective tweets). I have also come across a few responses, including Megan Tonjes' vlog rant.


But I thought I'd do some crowdsourcing and see what responses (tweets, videos, blog posts, etc.) you've come across (or created!) in response to #fatpeoplenightmares over the last few days.

I took a quick look at it but found it really hard to plow through. All the jokes are moronic ("fat people eat KFC all the time! fat people can't climb stairs! Hardy-har-har!"), and most of the participants seem semi-literate. I don't know. It's hard to be offended by people who are so obviously not a threat.

That said, Stacy Bias has a couple of choice responses.

According to all of the people on this trending topic, I should be eating nothing but McDonald's and KFC, funny how I can't eat those things unless I want to get violently ill. It seems to be mostly mindless ignorant garbage. Though one stuck out that said she doesn't know what it would be because she doesn't socialize with "their kind"...that stung a bit.

My favorite responses are just the ones that post what their actual nightmares are, not acknowledging the haters and calling them out. I don't feel like that helps. People don't care if they are bigots or hurt you, they want to do that, as I see it, so I've quit trying to have heart to hearts with people, telling them how they've upset me. It's a losing game.

There is also a #thinpeoplenightmares as well. Maybe it was developed in response, I don't know.
