LONG CAPTION AHEAD;
Now, with the whole Xiaxue and her views on obesity and supposed “fat-shaming”. My thoughts on this is everything you say online, there will always be a group who will get offended. I definitely felt very insulted by what she had to say in the beginning but reading on, I get it as well. Being morbidly obese isn’t great for your health and especially if it came from overeating. However, it is pretty screwed up not to consider the other factors. For example, there is such a condition called Body Dysmorphia Disorder, where they either feel that they are too fat or too thin. It goes both ways. Being harsh and aggressive isn’t the way to bring light to issues. The tone that Xiaxue had was pretty.....Well, to me it was tactless and arrogant. However, you really can’t deny some of the points she brought up in it as well. In every write up, you get both sides to the topic. I guess what got to me is the way she handles the aftermath, where she takes the DMs as “haters being haters” and relishing in the attention. It’s kind of gross seeing how a Pioneer of blogging hasn’t changed her attitude much and will take whatever attention she can get. It’s a pity, if she could tweak her tone a little more, I do believe people would see the good points she brought up. Instead, she decides to photoshop a photo of herself to be obese and aggressively defends herself. Oh wells, that’s that.
