Once upon a time I used to read the Daily Mail. I actually used to buy it and read it on the train on the way to work.
Then when I stopped work and was a stay at home mum I had it delivered.
Until one day I woke up and read it for what it was. Misogynistic, xenophobic tripe.
Whenever I look at the side bar of shame on line (yes, I still look at it online because …. well I don’t know why if I am brutally honest) there is another story that makes me want to rage. Not necessarily the content of the story but the angle that has been taken, or the accompanying headline.
Yesterday they stooped to an all time low:
The headline was quickly pulled and altered but not before people had screenshot it. Somebody approved that headline. Allowed it to be published. Presumably whilst doing the first draft of this devastating story:
Do they not get it?
Do they not see that all the time the press are printing ridiculous stories about size 10 or 12 women being chubby girls are killing themselves to be thin. Either by starving themselves or by taking their own lives.
The Daily Mail should be ashamed of themselves this morning.
And should be making a heartfelt apology to Leona Lewis and to every other woman they belittle on a daily basis.
This is my Ranty Friday for this week. Below are other people having a rant. Do visit their blogs!
