And they’re like amazing nine-year-olds who will rule the world someday and they say, “Hey, would you like to buy some cookies?” can you not tell them “No, thank you, I’m watching my weight/afraid of getting fat/can’t have them in my house?”
Because what you’re telling those girls is that fat = bad and that weight matters more than trying to learn how to run a business and that cookies are a moral failing. They are NINE. For realz, if you don’t want some cookies, just say “No thank you!”
This message brought to you by the multiple women who said something like that to a seven-year-old and an eleven-year-old trying to sell some cookies in their merit-badge-studded vests outside of a supermarket today.
They had a sign that said “If you’re worried about gaining weight, you can always donate!”
Don’t tell me that’s not some of the most heart-wrenching shit you’ve heard today.
