12:09 pm - It just gets worse and worse...
And now we are up to Chapter 9 of the MsScribe epic.

And it has to be one of the most horrific accounts of fandom I have ever come across. Some pooor woman with cancer getting stomped on by a whole bunch of BNFs just because she asked one of them to link her fundraising website. After they had been going on about how fandom supports it's own and all that, too.

I don't think I have ever been so appalled by fandom as a whole. The things that were said...

Wow. You're an evil, evil person.

Just for the record, not every person who has gastric bypass surgery for weight loss does it for cosmetic reasons. A lot of the time, surgeons aren't insured to operate for some conditions with people above a certain weight or BMI, and some of them have no choice but to have a gastric bypass in order to allow them to have operations that will improve their quality of life or prolong it.

Even then, that's assuming that the surgery was for weight loss, which it may not have been. Here's to you, chump.

As I said, I read her site. Her doctors recommended that she lose weight for her health's sake; she said so herself. Why do you think that's a bad thing? There's nothing wrong with getting gastric reduction surgery; it's not an option I'd personally take, but it is a very slow and difficult process to lose weight and keep it off, and if your weight is threatening your health directly it may be worth the medical risks of the surgery.
