I've found that I occasionally forget that most people do not have that kind of attitude. If I affectionately tease someone who is more self-conscious about being fat, it might not go over as intended. But it's never malicious.
I think it depends on whether they talk about fat acceptance or size acceptance. The size acceptance group seems to see "fat" as a negative. The fat acceptance folks simply see it as an adjective, or even a positive feature.
