I guess I’m in the minority on Star Trek. Which in a way makes me glad because I’m glad that a Star Trek movie is doing well at the box office. (Yes, I can be of two minds. I’m a May Baby.)
I must also be in the minority for wanting Kirstie Alley to just go be fat in private, seeing as how she’s on every tv show and magazine in the country. I’m befuddled because she’s actually admitting what Fat Acceptence folks like me have been saying for years. Everyone does gain the weight back and most people who keep it off can only do so under extreme conditions such as being paid to do so and being monitored on it extensively by the same people who prepare their food for them, etc.
Yet she’s still shaming herself and every other fat person by making it sound like a personal failing instead of what is for most people in this country the natural state of being.
But it makes her money and gives her the best currency an actor can have–continued publicity. In fact I’m kind of mad at myself for blogging about it but I needed to write about something before I dissappear for a few days. OOops. I’m not supposed to tell readers I’ll be disappearing. But I will. Until Thursday or Friday. In fact, that’ll probably be the pattern from here on out.
