I want to respond to this article, but I don’t know if I can without writing a ten page paper. It’s all about how much money we’d save if no one were fat.

Ugh. It both makes me angry and gives me some hope. At the very end, the author recognizes weightism as a problem. But the rest of it is just begging for me to attack it.

    Not only does this completely espouse fat-hate, but it also has no sources to back up it’s ludicrous claims nor does it really think through some of it’s premises.

    It’s just poorly written all the way around.
