Still I Rise
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?

Hi Stephanie ~-My name is Ali, I live in Cincinnati. I just discovered you VLOG and want to tell you how much I appreciate your open and honest opinion.
I also happen to agree with you 100% :
It would be great if everyone in the world simply accepted people for who they are as a whole person and not simply focus on the unfounded beliefs one has about a persons' form.
But just like there are social rules for applying for work, and dressing a certain way for an interview - there seems to be a number of "unwritten" rules these days regarding how that person LOOKS in that interview suit.
Employers are Now permitted to openly considering a persons' health prior to employment. Corporations do not want to be financially burdened with an employee who smokes for liability reasons. The law permits a person to be denied a job, an apartment, or life saving surgeries because he/she has the (legal) habit of smoking. The same applies to people who are overweight.
It may not be openly advertised in the employers Want Ad (i.e. "This is a Non-Smoking Facility = Smokers need not apply") but hidden messages such as "A person must be able to stand on their feet for 8 hour days" or "Applicant must be able to wear the uniform provided by the corporate office." Clearly means, "Overweight or Obese Persons don't bother".
I don't know whether such things are ethically correct or not. I am a lawyer and I understand that we live in a free market society and therefore Corporations must compete.
Civil Rights protect against discrimination for sex, religion or race. But there is no protection against being discriminated against for what is considered a "Health Problem" (i.e being overweight). Until there is uniform medical wellness care provided to all people. Discrimination against overweight persons will continue.
Keep Up the Good Work Stephanie, Best ~ Ali ~

Ughhhh! Today is a tough day for me. I am not an emotional eater, I'm a bored eater. And I'm off today and bored. Danger zone! Trying to stay away from my fridge. I find myself wandering over there and staring at its contents without even realizing it.
