Default And another thing: It's not all about you...

No. You're wrong. Probably, it just seems that way if you don't really understand the most basic point about precisely what 'the concept' even is, to begin with, just for starters. A hint, it's not anything to do with what you 'associate' this or that with, your 'associations', whatever they may be.

Are you physician? A (licensed) nutritionist? Physical therapist?

You're wrong as well, have gone soft with age. Yes, there's all kinds of trolls all over social media; but the widening of the base of participation has actually tilted a balance towards more normalcy and decency. I mean, for those communities with the sense and to enact fair and practical moderation. There's thriving Size Acceptance and Fat Admiration based communities on both Reddit and Facebook. There's lots of BBW vloggers on YouTube.

Indeed, the world still turns, but without your help.

Oh, I see. So, that we lack for a workable (read: airtight) definition for something, it therefore does not exist? Is not 'a problem' we can talk about?

Yeah, that makes sense.

You know, I think this is what's really at the root of your problems: Too much of "I feel..." and "I think..." and "my feelings..." and not enough critical thinking and (more objective) self-examination and self-criticism and (practical) analysis. Too much certitude and 'confidence' without enough directly relevant experience and evidence to support it.

C'mon, man, it's time for a paradigm-shift. Start today!
