Angry Rant About Tumblr - November 12th 2015, 08:31 PM

So I've noticed that there has been a trend going on throughout the internet (but especially on Tumblr) where people get mad at other people for trying to be healthy. I must confess that I don't quite understand it. (It's ironic because I don't eat particularly healthy foods. Just sort of average.)
I can't wrap my head around how someone eating a salad = being a bad person. However, I just left confused and didn't get angry. This was a few weeks ago.
Today, I looked at my dashboard and saw this picture:

Am I the only one who realises how stupid this is? Someone ordered a f**king diet coke! Why are you so upset by this that you have to change their order? I for one drink diet coke. Not because I'm being pretentious, but because I know that obesity problems run in my family and I am trying to avoid them. What if that person was diabetic? You could be responsible for their injury or death! I saw a girl post that she has problems digesting lactose and had to go to the hospital because some bitch at Starbucks gave her a latte with regular milk instead of soy like she asked for!
And don't even get me started on the label "skinny bitches". Here's what people don't seem to get: I have two friends, one who is overweight (let's call her Jessica) and one who is underweight (let's call her Danielle). Both of them have medical conditions that cause them. Jessica doesn't eat McDonald's every day and Danielle doesn't have an eating disorder. Jessica is completely comfortable in her skin and when someone makes fun of her, she tells them to f**k off. Danielle, on the other hand, is extremely self-conscious about her weight and refuses to wear anything revealing because she claims that she "looks like a skeleton". For some reason, though, the same people that get all defensive over "fat shaming" don't even acknowledge "skinny shaming" as a thing because they "deserve to be made fun of" or something.

You should probably take everything mentioned on tumblr with a pinch of salt.

That picture looks like it originally came off Whisper or the old PostSecret app. Jesus Christ is right about Tumblr. I would also like to point out that Diet Coke is really not much healthier than regular Coke, it may not have the same sugar but it does have other things. But you're right, no one should change an order just because they think it's someone being pretentious. There's nothing wrong with eating healthy, as long as you don't shove it on other people.

Tumblr is a place where plus size models etc are popular and they put down anything that's 'skinny' because if you're skinny, you're fat shamming and that's wrong. If you have a healthy lifestyle, that's oppressive to people that are obese and that's not fair to them because they don't look after themselves etc.

The place is just a bunch of hypocrisy.
