It should come as no surprise that I love Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday to decorate for, and honestly I’d be happy if there were several Halloweens a year (like every full moon). I get that Halloween is not for everyone. Some people don’t like it based on religious beliefs, and others just hate any holiday that they feel have been over commercialized. I get that, I’m cool with that, more candy and scares for this ghoul.
But then there are some people that just want to ruin shiz for kids and kids at heart. Like this snobdouche:
Some Grinch-assed Biatch in North Dakota plans on handing this out to kids on Halloween. I’m pretty sure her soul is dark and smelly. You can read the Today article here.
Is childhood obesity a growing problem in our country? Yes, it is. Hell, obesity is a problem for almost all Americans (including myself). I’m doing my part to get healthy, eating better, moving more, exercising more. I’ve stopped eating my weight in ice cream every month. But I would never, ever, ever, fat shame some little kid or hand an anonymous note to some little trick r’treater to hand to their parents telling them how I think they should be raising their children.
There are so many better ways to battle childhood obesity! No kid needs a bulging bag of Halloween candy, not even super skinny kids, or kids with tapeworms, or Charlie Bucket types- all that sugar and calories isn’t good for anyone. If you really want to appoint yourself the Healthy Weight Fairy on Halloween, then hand out a healthy treat, or a toy. Or, for this lady, turn your lights off and sit in the dark like the grumpy troll you are.
I’m pretty sure a note telling a parent that their kid, in your non-professional opinion, is fat is worse than handing out pennies or cheap toothbrushes.
Choosing what kid passes your body fat index test and handing out candy or notes according to which child falls on the fat/non-fat side is cruel. The note might be for the parents, but most kids can effing read once they’re trick or treating on their own. Why signal them out for humiliation? Overweight kids already have enough prejudice and judgement to deal with, why add to the pain and possibly cause life long body image issues?
Also it’s ‘your child’ not ‘you child’. Always, always, spell and grammar check your hate letters!
I guarantee this woman does not truly care about the health of her neighborhood children. If she did then she’d organize neighborhood walks, or make sure the schools in her voting district were encouraging physical activity. Handing out a passive aggressive letter to little kids on the most fun holiday ever just proves that she has an awful lot of hate in her heart. She isn’t trying to help parents make better health choices for their children, she’s shaming them and putting them in their rightful place- beneath her.
The Horrible Halloween Note Lady is choosing to remain anonymous, but it can’t be too hard to find her, she lives in the only glass house in Fargo Moorhead, West Fargo. I’m sure she’s perfect, and I’m sure that if she even has children, that she has made no mistakes in raising them and that they are the exact weight for their height. Maybe she even had them drop a few pounds this month, so that they can enjoy the candy she thinks they deserve more than other children.
Rant is over… well, until I read your comments and then we can rant together!
