I started hating myself/my body at five. FIVE YEARS OLD. I was bullied all throughout kindergarten. I was teased in pre-school ballet and tap dance and hockey but I remember actual physical bullying starting at five.
That’s ridiculous, man.
honestly though that scooby doo thing is appalling
- give little girls even more fuel to hate themselves at a young age and start a lifelong habit of body policing and body shame
- imply that size 8 is somehow unhealthy like that’s below the american average for women and not to mention thinner than I’ve ever been in my life, I would be blessed to ever reach a size 8
- make the very sexist choice to make Daphne vain enough to have her ULTIMATE WORST FEAR becoming “fat”
- depicting fat as a negative
gross. this is the exact kind of thing that starts eating into your brain at a super young age and stays with you forever.
this is the proudest day of my life I’m rubbing off on my mom
me and my mom are both big ladies and for a long time growing up my mom preached that she wanted me to be healthy so that I didn’t go through what she went through as a fat girl growing up and unintentionally made me feel pretty bad every now and then for it (mom doesn’t want me to be fat I’m fat! etc)
but apparently my body positivity I’ve been casually putting out around the house has rubbed off on her because she just sent me an e-mail:
what? mom is boycotting scooby doo? what on earth?
MOM IS ANGRY ABOUT FAT BEING DEPICTED AS A NEGATIVE?
YES MOM YES
FUCK SCOOBY DOO!

oh ok, thanks! I know potter puppet pals.
it’s just nice to see someone jontron apparently respects (not a fan, that is, and not a woman, ha) respond to him frankly about his dismissive/abrasive beahvior
