Tonight at 10:00 a new show called “Starved” premiers on FX. Based on the commercials, the show appears to be a dark comedy about strange people and their strange eating/personality disorders; you know, funny shit like anorexia and bulimia. From what I’ve seen the show looks funny. In one commercial, the main character is eating food out of a garbage can. That alone is enough to make me watch the show at least once.
In today’s paper however, some people - people who haven’t even seen the show to my knowledge, are already calling for a “viewer and advertiser boycott” of “Starved.” This is a fine example of a bunch of pussies with liquid spines bitching about something they find offensive.
The National Eating Disorders Association is the liquid-spined group of pussies I just mentioned. These fuckbags are already calling the show “appalling and reprehensible.” Chances are, if these morons hate the show so much, I’ll love it. In fact, I wasn’t even planning on watching it but now I’m going to. Not only that, I’m going to watch the encore presentation of the show an hour later. Why? Because I hate these whiney groups of over-sensitive imbeciles who have to bitch about every measly, little thing that offends them.
“Boo-hoo-hoo. Someone in America is snickering at my silly little disorder. How can I possibly live another day? I simply cannot live while myself, and people like me are made fun of.”
Then jump off a building and get it over with you cowering bag of chicken shit. Just because you puke up your dinner every night doesn’t mean the rest of us should have to suffer. The only appalling thing in this situation is having to look at you skinny, emaciated morons with your protruding collarbones and yellow skin while you make a slobbering, teary-eyed spectacle of yourself.
Get the fuck over it. If you’re so offended by the show don’t watch it. Your stupid bitching, complaining, and protesting makes people like me hate people like you more than any “reprehensible” portrayal of your condition on a TV show ever could.
Don’t you jerk-asses have something better to do with your time than cause a fuss over a TV show? I don’t know; maybe something like picking through chunks of your own vomit to make sure you got all of that chocolate cake up. Either that, or eat a burger and shut the fuck up already.
Postscript: I just watched the first episode of “Starved.” The show really wasn’t very good. Actually, it was kind of lame. Interestingly enough, I don’t think the show was making fun of bulimics or anorexics at all. Sure, a few times there was a vomit joke or something, but at the end of the episode they showed all of the main characters at their weakest without a hint of humor all. Which pretty much made the anorexic/bulimic jokes earlier in the episode seem less funny and more pathetic; like these people have real problems and need real help. As you can imagine, I was not amused.
The fact is, if the idiots at The National Eating Disorders Association would have waited to see an episode of the show before they went batshit crazy with their boycott requests, maybe they would have actually appreciated the show. Well, probably not. Organizations like NEDA aren’t exactly known for being level-headed.
