I mentioned fruit in my last post (if you haven’t read it, it’s amazing—what’s wrong with you?) and I got to thinking about it. A lot of fruit is fat.
Think about it: apples, mangoes (is mangoes really spelled with an “e”? Is that British? Seriously.), papayas, pineapples, oranges, melons…and the dreaded pears. And tomatoes. I heard they’re a fruit somewhere. Science and stuff.
What kind of body image is that sending to young girls across the world and civilized society? Sure, there are bananas, but there aren’t enough skinny fruit to go around. This is a culture problem.
Even grapes…tiny fat fruit.
We need to band together and recognize this for the social issue it is. I suggest protesting outside grocery stores until they breed fruit that looks like the person I feel inside.
