Ouch. This hits pretty close to home.

As a guy, I feel like fat men have it bad enough as it is, what with how we’re rarely used in media outside of comic relief, and appearances that are intended to be taken seriously are rare exceptions. And women have it even worse.

We’ve only recently been seeing big women in the sort of mainstream acceptance that big men have had for ages, such as leading roles in comedy films.

We’re still a ways off from where we should be. We got a long way to go.
