Tosh.0 Makes Fun of Celiacs, Users Wish Death on People With Allergies
Alan reads Tosh daily. I can’t stand the guy and think he is unfunny and mostly meanspirited. Alan showed me a Tosh today about glutenfreesingles.com. It pokes fun at gluten free eaters. The comments, which Tosh’s blogs are famous for, are horribly mean. Chris Kieth’s comments made me extremely angry. Anyone who thinks that opening up a gluten free restaurant and feeding gluten filled foods to celiacs is funny is a very sick minded individual. Gluten free is not a fad diet. Bloggers like Tosh are further putting the idea that gluten free is a fad into the mainstream school of thought. I am livid and can not string my words together properly at this point so today I am handing over this post to Alan the gluten free boyfriend. Here is what he has to say on the subject.
With companies like South Beach Diet and their South Beach Diet Gluten Solution portraying gluten free eaters as fad dieters looking for the next simple way to lose weight, companies like Estrella and Omission using inaccurate testing to state they remove “most” of the gluten, just a little bit is left, and even our own joke of an organization – the FDA – saying anyone can slap a Gluten Free label on their product as long as they think it’s less than 20 parts per million, its no wonder no one takes real allergies seriously.
This is evident from a recent post on the always controversial Tosh.0 blog. This post – http://tosh.comedycentral.com/
I urge you to go respond to comments on the Tosh.0 post with real facts about celiac. Also feel free to sound off here in the comments section.
