If you find grossly overweight women unattractive, you are a pig.

This form of fat activism is a manifestation of Collective Munchausen wherein the currency is "I a victim therefore I am." All roads lead to being offended.

I Posed in a Bikini in Times Square. I Was Expecting Comments from Haters, But What I Actually Heard Was Way More Disheartening.

Fat activism is a joke. We shouldn't demean anyone for how they look, even if they did it to themselves. But I think 'fat acceptance' and pretending it is 'ok' to be fat is only going to cause more problems in the long term.

No one should feel bad because of appearance. It's all subjective.

But obesity is a serious health issue.

Pretty much what I think too.

And actually, size doesn’t make for attractiveness or sexiness anyway, that always comes from within.
I might also add, it is NOT ok to let your children get overweight.
