I know that some of you will read the articles in the paper and online today about the growing number of obese Americans with the horror that it is intended to engender.
I don't...as I'm sure you would guess. I do have some hope, as more people become fatter, that more will see as clearly as I do, the way in which the "obese" are discussed as other...a problem that must be dealt with.
This is subtle, but it is there. Civilized oppression at its finest. The creation of other makes it easy for those who are fat-phobic to have a greater voice. Just read the comments that follow the articles and I'm sure you'll get your fill of it.
I have all sorts of feelings about solutions that are proposed, but I'll leave them for another time.
Those of you just joining the fold of teh fats, welcome!
