They say at one point that anorexics don't receive ridicule. I'd like to argue that people can be insensitive jerks to you no matter your size. I have a friend who's always been skinny her whole life. Not anorexic, just very thin. She has a high metabolism and eats a lot. She actually went on birth control hoping it would HELP her gain weight so she could stop hearing comments like, "I hate you, you're so skinny! Why don't you eat a sandwich? You must be anorexic!" I would argue that people in general tend to be more tactful and tiptoe around the feelings of someone who's obese as a result of overeating than they are with someone who's just very thin. There is a very discernable difference between someone who's naturally thin and someone who's malnourished. A malnourished person usually has dark circles under their eyes and appears skeletal, and usually has hair falling out or looking very dull and scraggly. My friend always had brightness in her eyes, color in her skin, and

Size acceptance, fat acceptance, whichever you wish to call it, is more beneficial to our society today than the website you're advertising on your userpage, and that's the truth. When someone stops worrying about their weight, as if it has any real effect on their character at all, they become much happier people.
But who cares about their happiness, right? Women are objects to you people, and if an object isn't pretty enough, you throw it out, or muck with it until it becomes pretty enough.

No, you know what's really dangerous? "My Fat Spouse: It Is Disrespectful To Willingly Become Unattractive To Your Life Partner."

Disrespectful, to whom? Sounds like something a control freak would say. Tell me, honestly, how that mindset isn't harmful to not only the psychological state of your female partner who suddenly gains weight and can't get rid of it because it's thyroid-related, or becomes anorexic because of the undue pressure you put on her?

Really? What's dangerous about it? The fact that more and more fat people are learning to be comfortable in their skin? Maybe the fact that this whole "self-acceptance" thing is giving the fat people the courage to stand up for themselves instead of letting people walk all over them, or not letting people dictate their worth by their weight? Maybe it's the fact that their concept of self-acceptance flies in the face of everything you've worked so hard for at Myfatspouce. I mean, if women stopped hating their bodies and quit the frantic, paranoid race to lose weight by any means possible and started treating weight like it was no big deal, society would surely crumble.
