WTF kind of question is that? Is it “okay” to be who and what I am? Who asked you? Now, I need permission to exist?
Imagine asking that of any other group of people. Now imagine their response!
But Nightline apparently thinks it’s a reasonable question. With Marianne Kirby and Meme Roth going head-to-head on the “issue”.
I have to admit, I only saw and heard snippets of the Nightline episode.
Major major kudos to Bill for watching the entire thing. And same to anyone else who can sit through it. I hope Bill will post giving a much more informed commentary on the episode.
The little bits I saw and heard had me yelling at the screen, which made me realize all it was doing was upsetting me and making me crazy. I just couldn’t do that to myself.
Marianne Kirby looked great, and from what I hear, she did a really good job — especially faced with a nut job like Ms. Roth. I’m sorry, at best Ms. Roth has major OCD that is focused on her own body; at worst, she is an undiagnosed anorexic. I don’t know, I don’t care. I just want her to shut up.
I’m going to do some future posts on some basic arguments and questions that seem to arise in these types of interviews. Giving my thoughts and comments, and I hope you will all give me your thoughts, comments and any information you have on the various issues!
