Meme’s

I wanted to start this post off with saying “Yay! I thought of something to write” and I’m writing it in a hurry so hopefully I don’t get my English all mixed up!

Also though, when did a meme become a “fact” or a representative of a whole community? There are some good meme’s out there, I also know though in my mind that a meme doesn’t represent a community as as whole. So I have HUGE issue with the meme that is pictured below.

This meme tends to come up a lot when you see the fat vs skinny debate. I don’t know why people think this ONE meme represents an entire community, or that it’s some kind of evidence, because I know it’s not true. The majority of guys in my family, especially on my Dad’s side are all tall and skinny. My Dad’s nickname when he was younger was “Bones”. Now I get asked A LOT if my brother, cousins and Uncles are eating (generally by bigger people as well) BEHIND THEIR BACKS and through private messaging. So I know it DOES happen.

Also though and quiet frankly, someone SHOULD be talking to this guy. I don’t know why bragging how no one seems to care about your health is a good thing, or proves a point either? I would also be willingly to bet that people talk about it behind his back. He doesn’t mention as well though how everyone comments on how great he looks either.

As a society we are becoming bigger, it’s just a fact. Each person’s health will be different and it will depend on a lot of different factors. I’m not obese, but because of my families issues with high cholesterol. I do have high cholesterol, so I have to be aware of that all the time. So although I am not what people would call “obese” I know my body can become unhealthy very quickly. I do wonder though if people who do get so upset so quickly about their weight by strangers, might be feeling guilty? I always feel guilty when I eat bad food, because I know I probably shouldn’t.

It’s an interesting topic, I get called skinny by some and fat by others. Yet I never get upset about it. I don’t know why. I guess in some ways I know if I REALLY wanted to do something, I could. But it wont be because of someone else’s meme or opinion of me…Except for possibly my Doctors point of view,lol

*I still hope someone talks to this guy*
