What this guy says:
"there is a fundamental difference between homophobic and racist remarks and 'fatist' ones. With very, very few exceptions people are fat because of the lifestyle decisions they have made. It is this obvious and undisguisable manifestation of those decisions which is derided."
I'd like to add that, in a world that continues to produce more than enough food to feed everyone on the planet, and yet in which one person dies as a direct or indirect result of hunger every second, eating more than is healthy for you is utterly abhorrent. I'm not suggesting that fat people actively steal food from the mouths of the malnourished, but if you asked me if I wanted to vote for the aboliton of agricultural subsidies in the UK and EU, despite the effect upon already massively inflated food prices, I wouldn't hesitate to do so. If you asked a fatty the same question I doubt they'd be so keen despite the overwhelming moral case in favour. The morality of this argument is indistinguishable from that of climate change deniers: both want to maintain their current, unsustainable and morally indefensible lifestyle at others' expense.
