I'll have to respectfully but vociferously disagree on the fat fetishists. An FA is attracted to fat women. A fetishist is attracted to the fat itself.

I think at attraction or preference for BBWs is no different than a preference for blondes or a certain ethnicity. It's a preference for a certain type. That someone has a preference or "type" is not considered abnormal for just about any other physical characteristic other than size/weight. Why then are we so quick to dismiss FAs as fetishists?

Granted I think there are fat fetishists out there. But like I said once already, I think a fetishist may be embarrassed to be seen in public or by his friends, or is more likely to use a fat woman for sex, or is attracted to the fat itself (just like some people have a foot fetish or any of the countless others out there). So an FA may see a BBW whose fat attracts him to the person a fetishist may be attracted to the fat itself with no actual interest in the person.

Is there some overlap? I'd be willing to say without a doubt, yes. But to lump them together as one and the same...laughably inaccurate.
