"Either way, what matters is that she's looking slimmer than usual. Thank the lord for that..." - from a post at X17online that accompanies this photo of Jessica Simpson. Okay, look, I'm not going to lie and act like I haven't had a few good laughs at JSimp's expense, because, you know, the girl says some pretty hilarious/ridiculous stuff. But who the hell works at this website? "WHAT MATTERS is that she's looking slimmer"??? Yeah, that's what matters. I'm not sure how to put this, because, you know, it's difficult to articulate just how offensive, dangerous, and profoundly stupid statements like these are. It's hard to summarize in one blog post the psychosocial ramifications of this idea, these attitudes, and our desensitization to them. And since it is, as such, a topic for a much longer post, let me say just this for now: Fuck you, X17.
