There's one thing that has bugged me a lot since yesterday. There is a Facebook page that is stealing photos of plus size women as a way to make fun of them. A few of my friends photos have been stolen and put onto this Facebook page that truly is a hate page. I know that it has been reported many many times from myself included and Facebook responds back saying that the page isn't hate speech and the content has not been removed. I just don't understand the logic behind their decision but several in the plus size community on Facebook are pissed off and I am too. Just because we are bigger does not mean we have no rights and that we shouldn't be a protected class like age, sex, religion, sexual orientation... why should weight/size not be included in that? I'm sick and tired of being judged based solely on my weight. It's not right nor is it fair. I am big but I don't deserve to be treated so poorly because of my weight or the way that I look. I think it is downright disgusting that the admin of this Facebook page is doing this to these women... spreading so much hate because they are either bored, really hateful, have no heart, or because they themselves are a plus sized woman with no self-esteem.
