Anyhow, I was talking to her about the other show True Life. So I mosey-ed on over to the casting calls for the show. Ya know where they post what upcoming topics will be and you can apply with your photo and story to be on the show. Let's see what I found...
True Life: I Need Anger Management
True Life: I'm Schizophrenic
True Life: I'm a Southern Belle
True Life: I'm Happy to be Fat...
What? So they're going to do a show on Fat Acceptance? Somehow I don't see this thing being positive. I mean, granted the description below sounds like it might have a positive ring to it. But something about this just seems wrong. Something sounds like it's going to just mock a fat person. I dont know.
True Life: I'm Happy to be Fat
Are you overweight but comfortable with your body type? Do friends and family urge you to lose weight but you don't listen? Do you appreciate the feeling or appearance of being fat or do you like to date men or women who are overweight? Do you want to increase your weight? Have you set a goal in bodyweight or size that you're trying to reach? Have you encountered health problems or risks while trying to reach your goal?
If you appear to be between the ages of 18 and 28, and are happy to be fat, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with all of the details.
Please be sure to include your name, location, phone number and a photo, if possible.
What do you guys think? Are any of you going to email this staff to try out? Or do you think that it's all just fun and insults?
Oh, and you know.. I know how this show ends up. My highschool was the one in True Life: Prom Night. They butcher everything you say and turn it into whatever they want to hear. I dont know about this. Any comments, arguments.. etc??
I feel fat, but not happy today.
