The upshot of her post is such a broad swath of defending of fat people's right (I grant you, just) to exist in the world and appear in public; such a broad swath of people pissed off at (and recognizing) hatred, fat-phobic vitriol, fulla-shit privilege, way outta line sharing of personal prejudice as if it's part of a cultural reckoning, a debate, some question of what's become of all of us, the way "we" have these horrible fatties all over the place, expecting to be allowed out.
I mean, it's, like, empowering. Ha! Talk about the intention of hate speech backfiring. If anything I now feel more like being (fat) on TV, walking (fat) across rooms in the presence of fat-hating people, making out (fat) with another fat person in public.
Speaking of, the way I heard about the whole kerfuffle was through a posting about The Big Fat Kiss-In! Fat people are going to gather in front of the Marie Claire building in NY tomorrow evening and kiss each other. And walk about, I'm sure. And be in public.
