Can I have a card for gaining weight which saved my life please?— BarefootRebel (@RebelBarefoot) September 9, 2020
Why is this even a thing! We never know what someone is going through when they loose weight.
Eating disorders, cancer, depression, greif. Weight loss is not always 'good' how about, are you ok? Instead. pic.twitter.com/svXNrmiCw9
The reality is that mainstream/high street greeting card retailers do perpetuate gender stereotypes.
If the greeting card is an attempt at a universal distillation of sentiment, it will inevitably reach for outdated shorthand for 'men' and 'women'. So what does that say about our culture's vision of women, of weight loss, of ageing?
