Then this happened.
Him-I simply don’t understand how people don’t enjoy working out and eating healthy.
Me-How do you know that? You  simply cannot state that a fat person does not eat heathly or work out.  There are so many things that factor into obesity. I hate to break it to  you but it is possible to be healthy at EVERY size, I’m sorry the media  tells you different. People should not be shamed into being thin
Him-It’s cheaper to eat well, and you get more done with your time when you’re healthy.
Me-BODY FAT DOES NOT EQUAL UNHEALTHY. Where is your health campaign for the anorexics, or smokers, or drinkers, or drug abusers?
Him-What the fuck is wrong with Drinking of Smoking?
Me- Well since your argument is  why wouldn’t fat people want to be healthy, This is whats wrong with  smoking or drinking- smoking causes lung cancer and drinking causes  liver disease. If you’re gonna attack one group for their health, you  might as well attack them all. 
Him- Yeah, but the fact is people who smoke and drink and do drugs are still attractive
Me- Okay, so smokers and  drinkers, and drug users can ruin their health because you cant see it,  but fat people must change their ways because you just can’t turn your  head the other way and ignore them?
Him-Eating healthy and not eating aren’t the same. Vegetables are great.   French fries with nacho cheese, are not a vegetable. It’s science. Shame should come from within, not being active and in shape is morally reprehensible if you’re young. I don’t understand why the make sizes greater than XL… clothing should not be able to serve as a makeshift tent.
Me-OH my, the ignorance that you keep spewing is UNREAL.
Him-If  they’re fat enough you  have to turn really far because they take up so much of the frame, and I  don’t think that’s acceptable. Also, if you’re in a public place they  take up more room because they’re bigger… it’s hard to avoid.

I don’t find wildly sizeist bullshit attractive, does that mean you’re not allowed to talk again?
Like ever.

[Tweet from @neiltyson (Neil deGrasse Tyson) reads: “Just an observation: I’ve never, ever, ever, ever, heard a female voice as the narrator of a movie trailer.”]

On London: Rioting in Media Context

  • ITV Reporter: Is rioting the correct way to express your discontent?
  • Young Londoner: You wouldn't be talking to me now if we didn't riot, would you?
  • ITV Reporter: ...
  • Young Londoner: Two months ago we marched to Scotland Yard, more than 2,000 of us, all blacks, and it was peaceful and calm and you know what? Not a word in the press. Last night a bit of rioting and looting and look around you.
