You Say You Want a Revolution…

1 Mar

I am so sick of having the word epidemic shoved down my throat!  Who decided what an epidemic is anyways?  And who decided that the word epidemic should have such a negative connotation?  These days it seems like everything is an epidemic.  Personally I think people are making a mountain out of a molehill!

In the news recently there has been an insurgence of words like “fatshaming” and our favorite, “epidemic”.  It’s enough to make me want to pull my hair!  Why can’t we just all get along?  What is so wrong with everyone just minding their own beeswax and leaving everyone else alone?

Oh, Disney, you seem to be the latest to jump on the epidemic bandwagon.  “Habit Heros”? Really!  What happened to the days when a kid could come to the Magic Kingdom and ride the tea cups and play with the Mad Hatter and be a kid for pity sake?  When did it become necessary that there be a lesson behind everything that we do?  You just couldn’t leave well enough alone could you?  Riddle me this?  Why is it that all your villains are fat?  Snacker, and Glutton and Lead Bottom?  Really?  Way to tell our kids that fat equals evil and a villain.  You couldn’t throw in a mixture of sizes could you?  Would it have been so horrible to not single out one group in particular?

I guess so.

Listen up kids!  There is nothing wrong with you!  You are perfect just as God made you and if and when He decided to change the way you look there still will be nothing wrong with you.  You are loved and cherished just as you are and don’t ever let anyone tell you differently.
