If your child recently went on a school field trip to The Coca-Cola Factory in Atlanta, there is a blogger who took pictures of children on that trip with the express purpose of using them to illustrate a point about childhood obesity. Their faces are blocked out but as a parent, I know that I would recognize my child in a heartbeat with giant blocks on their face…as would I’m sure anyone who knew them in real life.

The blog post is no better than a playground bully picking on a kid about their weight. The message behind the words are entirely beside the point…I don’t care what her point is, if one of my children, were in these pictures ,I would demand they be removed.
I haven’t had soda in over a decade. I am anti-soda, for me,for my kids…
but I’m even more against fat shaming random children ,especially in such a public and debasing manner.
The author of the blog has closed comments (and I believe deleted every comment that did not support her exploitation fully) but you can contact her at the following places:

Bloggers should also feel free to tell her how inappropriate and unethical this post is. A blogger who feels concern and passion for an issue can write with credibility without relying on exploitative pictures of children without parental consent. It makes the practice of blogging look like shit when people do stupid things like this.
