As a stigma researcher and advocate I sometimes think I’ve seen it all. apparently not. Esquire have published a column by Giles Coren called “I Don’t Care What My Son Becomes… As Long As He Isn’t Overweight.”
That sounds bad, but you literally can’t begin to imagine how much worse the article itself actually is. It is a hate fest from start to finish. As well as promoting both literal child abuse and genocide, Coren managed to get almost every -ist and -phobe he could squeeze into this violent piece of garbage.
Please don’t just read this and think, Oh, that’s terrible. Social media is powerful. Please speak up. Signing the petition takes 5 seconds but is only an available option for 9 more hours, today, Sun 12 Nov. The formal complain procedure takes a few minutes. Please let’s not let this become normal.
