talking about fat: don't be fatphobic

icon: "bodylove -- me (nude)" (my torso, seated and nude, showing my large breasts and round belly in soft light. There is a translucent fractal overlay in a shape like a fountain springing from hip to shoulder across my body.)"

If you describe someone as fat in conjunction with telling a story that has nothing to do with their size, you're fatphobic and that's fuckin gross. If you use words that imply someone or someone's body part is too large (like huge or massive), you're fatphobic and that's fuckin gross.

Way too often, someone supposedly pro-justice tells a story about a privileged shitwad & uses that person's fatness against them, to start people out disliking the person. It is unacceptable to encourage people to judge others as morally evil because they are fat.
