Hey, you! Yes, you, who likely knows someone who has suffered from an eating disorder, or have suffered from one yourself. You’re all weaklings, according to Kate Hudson, who apparently thinks that suffering from an eating disorder is a decision that people actively make. Like prescribing to The Lesbian Agenda, being short for their age in middle school, and being a dummy! All definitely choices, yes.
Kate spoke with Red magazine (as reported by Us Weekly) about… body positivity? At least, that’s what I think that’s the end goal was. But only the pop culture gods know what exactly happened between point A and point B that led us to this half-offensive, half-arrogant quote instead.
“If there is one thing I will never have, it is an eating disorder. I won’t have girls — even if it is just one or two who care — thinking that. Because it is a serious sickness, not something to plaster on the cover of a magazine. And I am the opposite.”
Okay… so she wants girls to feel good about themselves. Wonderful, so do I! It’s hilarious that her saying that having an eating disorder is too serious to be a magazine’s headline ended up being this magazine’s headline. And it’s doubly hilarious that she thinks that the warping of their thoughts in relation to food and eating habits is something that anyone seeks out. But the point still has at least one leg to stand on. If only because I’m forcing myself to see where she’s coming from.
It’s just too bad about that chopper accident that the other leg got into right afterward, when Kate got even more accidentally arrogant.
“I want girls to love themselves. I want them to feel good about who they are…The thing is, I’m lucky because I was loved. But I have seen so many young women who can’t feel good about themselves because they just don’t have that love.”
She reportedly continued on a 13-minute rant about how she wants all unicorns to live on cotton candy clouds. The thing is, you see, she got to live on cotton candy clouds, so she’s lucky. It’s not her fault that so many unicorns choose to be too poor to keep up with the expensive candy real estate game. That’s one thing that she’ll never do.
