Memo To The National Eating Disorders Association: Fuck You

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.

Saw it and you know what it was kinda funny. I do agree peolpe do need grow up and back the fuck of our TV shows man! If you haven't notice we don't have any left since this bullshit reality craze! So agree when I say FUCK YOU NEDA!

PS- I called you but know answer.

I'm insulted! I used to have an eating disorder. Not really, I just wanted to say that.

NEDA just made sure that more people watched the show. Half of them probably did the same thing you it just to say FUCK YOU!

@mit said...

Where is this show aired again?

Kenrick - Either my phone is broken, or I was passed out drunk and missed the call. E-mail me your phone number and I'll call you.

drunkbh - I used to have an eating disorder too. I wouldn't eat, I would just drink all day and I threw up a lot. That wasn't really an eating disorder actually, it was more of a hobby. Good point; there's no such thing as bad publicity.

@mit - The show is on the FX network. Thursday at 10:00 pm as far as I know.

if everyone would just NOT complain then no one would even know to watch. We have an asshole here that finally got put in jail...he's one of those nazi dicks that is always in the news. The press eats it up whenever he causes an uproar. Just ignore the dumbass, and maybe he'll just go away...

morbid misanthrope said...

wanting - I hate Nazis. I'd ignore them but they'd keep trying to put me in an oven. I'd rather kick their asses.

musie - No problem. Please remember that if you're ever a juror at one of my upcoming trials.

So you don't like oversensitive whiney people, eh? Well, guess what? You just became the very person you condemned there for.

Who the hell cares if there are oversensitive people in this world?! Why the fuck do you care that there are people who bitch about shows and other things that offend them?! They'll always be in this world, you damn hypocrite!

And tellin' them to jump off a building is the wrong way to deal with them. How would you like it someone told you to do that? Maybe that should happen to you.

If you can't stand people who bitch about things that they hate, then why don't you stay the fuck away from them' cuz bitchin' at them in return might make them beat the shit outta you.

If you ask me, you're not my kind o' misanthrope. I maybe a msianthrope. But I support oversensitive people and defend 'em against insensitive dumb asses like yourself.

Hell, you fit the very description of a misanthrope in this website:
