I read an article on the Vine recently about a woman and her natural large breasts. They are in the Guiness Book of World Record as being the largest in the world. She talks about being picked on, called names as a child, being the object of ridicule all her life. Many of the posts below this article suggested that she brought it on herself. That she should have gotten breast reduction surgery. That she should have learned to “toughen up” and take it. That because she did porn later in life, she deserved all the ridicule she got.
Another article about a woman being refused a seat on an airline because of her size. The opinions of the majority were ugly. They included "Don't sit that b*tch by me. I don't want her oozing all over me", "she got what she deserved, she shouldn't be allowed to fly", "why do fat people think they deserve anything better"?
I have a question. When is it okay to bully someone? When it is okay to belittle and demean? When is it okay to treat someone as less than human?
Is it okay when someone is born with a disfigurement? Is it okay when someone is born with something out of the ordinary? Such as Siamese twins? Dwarfism?
Is it okay to belittle another human being when they feel they are born in the wrong gender body? Born gay? Is it OK then?
Is it okay to treat someone as less than because they are born with an IQ of less than 100? Or is 75 the cutoff? Is there a magic number that makes it OK?
Is it okay to bully another human if they are overweight? Can’t gain weight? Have a large nose? Small eyes? Myopic? Is it OK then?
Tell me Newsviners. When is it OK to treat another human being like a piece of waste byproduct? When it makes YOU feel better about yourself? Does that make it OK?
Talk to me please? Tell me truly. When it is OK to treat our fellow human beings in such a callous manner? Then tell me why.
