The pictures on the web site are sometimes funny, sometimes not, but the content in the comments kind of remind me of a scene in the Hunchback of Notre Dame. The one where Quasimodo’s tied to a wooden platform and everyone’s throwing tomatoes at him because he was ugly and the public was influenced by one person throwing the first. I feel that partially applies to here.
Like, in some cases the pictures are the first person throwing the first tomato, and making the rest of the public feel that it’s socially acceptable to throw more.
I do get Quasimodo was naturally deformed, but sometimes some of the overweight people on here might naturally be that way too. And I think that even if you wear something ugly (not referring to fit) you should be able to do that without a whole lot of people saying stuff.
