They're all FAT TALKING!
When it comes to talking FAT.....everyone is weighing in......
I know there's bigger things going on in the world to talk about.
Definitely there's much larger issues to discuss.
Certainly, there's juicier pieces of gossip.
And, no doubt the news is filled with heavier topics.
But, let an obese Hollywood director be kicked off a plane because of his weight and all of a sudden, everyone's got something to say about it.
Different treatment for fat folks in now news.
My friends, this is not new news.
Ask any obese person and they will tell you--fat people are treated differently.
Ask any formerly obese person--such as myself....and I will tell you.....fat people are treated differently.
Just think about it.
It happens everywhere. Everyday. Everywhere.
Even in the friendly skies.
Listen, I don't have to don a fat suit and go out and cavort among the regular weight folks to prove a point. I've lived it. Sure, I didn't tip the scales at 700 pounds or get kicked off of planes or denied service or insurance or basic necessities. But, minus 115 pounds later, I can tell you--fat people are treated differently. And, minus 115 pounds later, I can tell you--fat people act differently. And feel differently. Because they are treated differently. But, mostly because the world of an obese person is different.
It's just what I am thinking about today.
What are you thinking about?
