I belong to a group on Facebook called Delawareans for Labeling Of GMO’s, which focuses on the truth about food in America, with the basis of Delaware labeling all foodstuffs that are genetically modified. That being said, it’s very common for group members to post comments, articles and video links in the group that have to do with tainted food.
On Sunday, I happened to post a video I came across on YouTube titled “8 Facts About Food That Will Totally Creep You Out” to the group page. One fellow took MAJOR offense at me posting the video, and called me a “dickweed”– twice!
These days, I try to ignore humans that come at me that way. I understand you feel like I attacked your personal food choices, though I could care less about what this guys does day to day, let alone shoves in his face hole. Since he called me a “dickweed”– twice – I decided that some light trolling was in order, so I responded to his projected nonsense with an image I found on Pinterest recently.
Mind you, I eat fast food (I love Wendy’s Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers and Taco Bell’s Double Decker Taco Supreme), but not often, and I’m well aware of what havoc it can wreak on my body from a health perspective. I totally get where dude is coming from, but he could’ve made his point without acting like an asshole. He also made himself look like an asshole, seeing as he would be a part of a group that’s attitude isn’t geared towards eating food that can kill you. He should leave the group if he can’t take the heat.
Again, I admit to eating things that I know aren’t good for me, but I’m still in the process of trying to eat better on a budget (which only sounds easy), and I eat a hell of a lot better due to the knowledge I’ve gained over the past few years, hence one of the reasons I wanted to join the GMO group.
Internet arguments can get crazy, but I wasn’t about to feed (no pun intended) into this guy’s nonsense, and let him think that it was okay for him to verbally come at me as if I was shaming him. As you can see from the image above, I didn’t direct my post at anyone specific, yet he went off.
The truth hurts!
