  •  While I agree with this woman's statement (4+ / 0-)

    I can't help but reflect  on comments I've read, and written myself, slamming Fat Rush, Fat Christie, Fat Gingrich, Fat Trump, etc.....  The difference is that those guys ARE in  fact bullies and deserve scorn, but is it okay to fat-bash them in  return?

    I'm not sure I'll stop fat-bashing the above names, but at least I'm  acknowledging and owning my behavior.

    •  Fat bashing isn't any more ok (0+ / 0-)

      Than gay bashing, race bashing, etc.  

      People who feel it is ok to fat bash believe it is because fat people choose to be fat, and they could change that if they just worked hard enough.  This is not the case, and the sooner everyone got that point, and made fat bashing as unacceptable as gay bashing, racial slurs, etc., the better.
