Looks like another stampede to claim victimhood and a super-special-double-plus-good position in our hierarchy. All of this grasping, clutching, DEMANDING victimology is going to be the death of our liberal democracy.
Why? Glad you asked: To me, it seems like a play to gain power that comes from the advantages government grants to favored classes of people. It's all about who can gain that favored position these days. Never mind the whole "we're all created equal" thing, right?
Coming Out As Fat | Ravishly
"Before I came out as fat, my friends and family had been well-trained never to bring up the subject of my weight; we all participated in a group delusion of my own making. I didnâ€™t want to be criticized and chastised because of my weight, so we spent a lot of time avoiding the topic."
My, how far we've come since I was 19, when my company Gunny -- during early morning PT ("physical training") -- used to rage at all of us that he'd be damned if any one of us worthless piles of dogsh*t were going to turn into a fat food blister on his watch. LOL!
