I've never gotten flack for being fat so maybe that's why. However, I've been questioned about what it is that I do for a living since I happen to live in an area that is mostly white and I've recieved some stares when out and about with my masculine partner...so my experience is a tad different.
Racism might have something to do with it. Where I work, most of the women are white and/or jewish. There are few minorities. At NWSA there were many ethinc groups represented. That they were so apathetic made me feel like size was the first thing they see since it's something that they ignore, you know what I mean?
