Melissa McCarthy is on a crusade to make sure her daughters never feel bad about their bodies. She could suggest a healthier diet and athletic regimen than her own, but instead she’s gone for lectures on body image and shaming and feeling comfortable with yourself in comparison to nobody else.
Feeling bad is evolution’s mechanism for telling you something is fucked up. No bad feelings, doesn’t result in utopia. It leads to an overpopulated world of the least fit, least resourceful, over-sensitive turds who think they’re always right. Society crumbles. The most successful people are the result of bullying. Or nepotism. Often both. McCarthy noted in relation to her fat person clothing line which is why she brought up the story about her girls in the first place:
“A good portion of women in America are size 14 and higher. I just try to make clothing that’ll make all women feel really good. When I feel good about my clothes, I’m more patient with my kids.”
If you’re a size 14, you shouldn’t feel comfortable. Unless you’re 6’8″. That bad feeling about how your constrictive clothes fit is evolution telling you you’re going to die from gravy-clogged arteries. Great parenting has always been associated with superior wardrobe choices. Loosen your belt and let the kids stay up half an hour late. You can beat them tomorrow with the rings that no longer fit.
