Blood sausage

This bit from Pulp Fiction on Miss Erin's Tumblr reminded me of something that annoys me.

It seems like there are a lot of people who try to encourage body positivity by saying things like, "You don't need to be skinny because lots of men prefer women who aren't!"

As if male preferences should be the deciding factor. Really.

Very nice intentions (maybe), terrible tactic.

Rita: People like it.

Phil: You are new, aren't you? People like blood sausage too. People are morons.

thank you for posting this, and for pairing that quote to the one I posted, and for the denouncing of that awful, awful tactic.
