Fat and Stupid

I don't think it's right to make fun of fat people. As a person who has had repeated success in the practice of gaining unnecessary weight, I am veering perilously close to the threshold of being called a "fatso" myself.

Rather than trying to normalize or glamorize this unhealthy, and unsightly circumstance, I vote to continue the practice of "fat shaming."

Whenever I see a fat person, my opinion of that person's credibility tends to be diminished. Especially in the field of health or politics. My thinking goes parallel to the old last resort of people I am winning arguments with, "If you're so smart, how come you ain't rich?"

(I remember this one, fat, I mean morbidly bloated co-worker, who tried to shame me for smoking cigarettes while he stuffed his face.)

I guess if I *were* rich, my opponent might resort to,

"If you're so smart, how come you are so fat?"

I think there is a negative correlation between smartness and bloat. That's just my opinion. If it's allowed.

Oh jeezus, Suddenly I think of Michael Moore. Fucking stupid. And rich. And fat.

I guess my question to Michael Moore should be, "If you are so fat and stupid, how come you are rich?" (One guess: there is a market for stupidity.)

Well, maybe I can't be black, so I have to restrain my opinions in that area. And I am not a woman, so I have to be careful about what I say about commie feminists. But as my waist measurement tends to expand, I can say whatever I like about fat fucks.

Time to end "thin privilege?" And "systemic weightism?"

And then there is the question of fat immigrants.

Worst of all is the spectacle of the Uber corporation being maligned for stuff it is actually NOT guilty of. In view of their other nefarious activities though, I like to watch them stew.

And I think the next time I have a gathering at my house, I shall insist that, in the name of health and wellness, that any fatsos that come over shall be politely asked to eat outside, especially if there are children present.


I wrote my own commentary before I watched PJW's rant. What a pleasure it is to me to find my airy thoughts about smoker shaming and "thin privilege" were not, in the least bit, original. PJW already hit upon it over two years ago.

And I have to admit that I am a bit jealous to discover that this uppity, young, white man, is already eons ahead of me in his thinking.
