buy a print/shirt here

Right. I don’t know where to start.  Even though it’s “just a cartoon” doesn’t mean that it’s not promoting ridiculously fucked-up stereotypes about hyper-violent Natives. 

Looking at this just literally made me sick to my stomach. I can’t give a complete critique because looking at this makes me want to wretch.  It’s wrong. It’s racist. It’s definitely not something you should buy a print of, or wear as a shirt. I can’t imagine the visceral reaction I’d have if I encountered this in the real world.

This is disgusting and makes my heart hurt.

[image: A drawing. A young person in shorts and a tshirt is sprawled, baring their large monster teeth. A person dressed in Native clothes (mocassins and a feather in their hair) stands behind them, with a hand under their chin and a knife to their forehead, scalping them. The background is a smeared red triangle. It is super gross and racist.]

TRIGGER WARNING: FAT-SHAMING
Here are some plates that say, respectively, “Big mistake,” and “It’s hard to be around you when you eat like this / Did you really need that second helping? / Please stop eating, we’re worried about you / For the love of God, stop eating.” Perfect for your next concern-trolling dinner party!
The places are sold as part of the “Interventionware” line at New York-based Fishs Eddy (which, upsettingly, is actually spelled sans apostrophe and letter e, though it’s not really their fault.) In response to a tweet from reader Abby Bernstein, Fishs Eddy said on their own Twitter feed, “These plates are not to be taken seriously. Of course we never mean to offend!”
Oh! And here we thought they were seriously telling us that our eating was a problem. Instead of just making creepy jokes about life-threatening mental illnesses at worst and garden-variety disordered eating and guilt at best. As Dodai says, “If my plates are going to talk to me, I want them to sing and dance like Beauty & The Beast.” Me too.
