    At the least it allows me to step away from unproductive conversations and avoid being trolled.

    Fixed it for you.

    or she who is taking the piss

    otherwise, is a pretty unappealing human who should endeavour to keep her repulsive statements to herself

    Yeah I don't get this. I am trying (and failing) to think of any way in which plus-size people have done anything that in any way directly harmed me. I have heard the theory that they suck up an inordinate amount of health-care, but I've also heard data suggesting that their often-shorter lifespans actually cause them to use LESS healthcare (in total dollars over total lifespan). And that is just for the really, really obese people. I've read that for people in the "overweight" category, there is often no difference at all in healthcare dollars used. Carrying 25 extra lbs doesn't mean you're going to cost the insurance company double.

    Hippies wandering around high (see #1)
    I gotta second that guy that sells the dead sea salt at the mall. I've met him in Calgary and in Houston. He does get around.

    And if you are buying individual insurance and are obese, you will pay a higher premium and if you get sick you will also pay more.

    Yeah, and I'd be curious to learn more about obese domination. Our president is pretty buff as is his wife. There are what- 2-3 female actresses in Hollywood that are obese, one female singer that is obese (or maybe she is just overweight) a few plus size models (that are merely overweight/normal) and Dove products uses normal bodies in their campaigns- but no one that is likely to actually be obese.

    Fat acceptance movement? Hmmm... Seems to really benefit the food industry and pharmas in my opinion. Who in their right mind wants to accept diabetes and other obesity related diseases? Those who are ignorant for sure, as well as corporations benefiting significantly from the obese.

    Well they are eating all the fucking food for a start!

    Did ANY of you follow the link I posted to the BBC? That points out that western obesity has more impact on world food supplies than population growth!

    Yes, so you should all totally pack up your leftovers and mail them to Africa after every meal.

    I was totally fired up and ready to make this my mission statement and then I remembered that I am a plus size person. DAMMIT.

    There's nothing worse than being forced into a dominant position when one is, at heart, submissive.
