But that's sort of a red herring, like someone's only allowed to care about the way fat people are treated if they meet up to every other ideological litmus test first.

My GOAL is to look like one of the dove models. Seriously when I get there I will be delighted.
And you know what. I was there 12 years ago. I was a UK size 12, Flat stomach, great hourglass figure, had loads of male attention. But I thought I was fat so I dieted, starved myself, exercised, went low fat vegetarian.
And because of that started gaining weight.
That lowfat vegetarian diet combined with 2 years on prednisone sent me up to 183lbs.
But now I am finally off the drugs and combined with primat blueprint I am now losing. Yup, at the rate I am going I will look like a dove model by about Christmas. How fantastic will that be? I am so happy.
I think those women look great. I'm looking forward to having my body back.

I think overall our society had simply started to not put care into dressing. Plus there is the whole teenage hooker look.Or the poverty and lack of education part?
I remember on a college campus seeing a thin girl with pants so low cut, you could see her pubic hair. It was gross. I think that people "think" it is sexy to have ass hanging out, of all sizes, in all situations. It cuts across income and education levels.
I'd say a good chunk of it is also people wanting attention.
Geez, I had never heard of that People at Walmart site. That is scary.
Magnolia, pubic hair hanging out?! No!!!! what is wrong with people?
As for Walmart, it is Walmart. What care should I put into dressing? As long as all indecent body parts are covered who cares if I am wearing a 3 piece suit or leopard print spandex? It's not like most places have a stated dress code beyond "No shirt, no shoes no service."
