When the whole ‘magazine mocks a cancer-survivor runner’ gets into Jezebel, you know it’s relatively mainstream. But, let’s all step off our outrage (and stop trying to boycott everything all the time) for a second and recognize our complicity. When every magazine runs a chart ranking things that are cool v. lame at the back of the issue and every media outlet makes fun of whatever is deemed fair game — and, don’t even lie, you probably make fun of people too — it seems disingenuous to be disgusted now simply because this girl you laughed at had cancer. It’s not the cancer that makes the laughing wrong. At least own that. Yes, the magazine misjudged its audience, but really the nasty lie was asking her for her photo and not telling her what it would be used for. That lie is the only lie that’s worse than the ones we’re telling ourselves.
