How to love a fat person.
Your Fat Friend

I've met a few fat people that were okay with who they were. Others weren't. One guy I knew was almost as obese as Jon Sudano and he was fun and could pick up girls here and there. He was okay with being fat, so there was no problem.

I wasn't okay being obese. Many other people aren't. So I ask you this… you've been fat for years, suffering year after year. Why didn't you do anything to change this?

I wasn't happy as an obese guy. I changed things. The big difference between racism and sexism is that *we can change our weight*.

I'm not saying *every* fat person should lose weight. If you're okay being fat, than there's no problem to solve. But if you're not… change it!
