This is a lovely, vulnerable, well-written piece. No one deserves to be publicly humiliated, ridiculed or otherwise abused.
Reading this, at first I thought, fatness is a choice. One similar to me smoking. Every time I put a cigarette between my lips, I know I am sacrificing my health, my looks and the respect I receive from people who judge me for it.
By the end of the article, I felt bad for thinking that. And yes, while I do think that there is some willingness involved, letting people go being bullied day in and day out is so very wrong. Thank you for making me see that. I will remember that when I see it happen and make it my goal to be the person who says something.
