Low self-esteem abounds

Reading the comments after an interview with Marianne and Kate regarding their new anthology . What's striking is just how singularly favourable the fat fighting views are to those who hold them.

According to them they eat perfectly, are self-controlled even in the midst of great temptation, are moderate, responsible, wise, judicious, moral, etc etc, the list goes on and on.

Fat people on the other hand are the epitome of all that is rotten about humanity etc, etc, the list is pretty long there too.

And yet, they're never satisfied and are often angry, to the point of being full of hate.

What this shows how the privilege of thin is a twisty mirage, and ultimately that pursuing too much self esteem and too little, ultimately end up at the same place.
