But Ruth, tell us what you really think. Don't hold anything back. How do you feel about short people? Old people? People in wheelchairs? Is there anyone you approve of?
Fortunately the commenters ripped into her, though it's now closed to comments. But once again I must say that we need to separate out appearance and health issues, prejudice and medical needs. I suspect that someday we'll all have a better understanding of the mechanism of appetite, the role of psychology, and have appropriate therapies--preferably to prevent excessive weight gain in young people that leads to childhood and adult obesity. In the meantime, I wish to point out that the fat acceptance movement has gotten more fat people to exercise than any amount of fat bashing ever did.
