thats fine. but all of this opposition to FAs being taken on individual merit makes me wonder what the big problem is with that. is it the fear of close scrutiny thats driving it? maybe some FAs think people might have a worse opinion of them than they do. maybe they feel guilty because just like any human being they have their moments of not being SA? the insistance that a fat person who actually stops to think about individual motives at all and what that means for them is somehow being negative and disloyal seems really over the top. why should an FA need unquestioning agreement anyway? that seems rather high handed.

I have no problem with "individual merit". Your rhetoric goes way beyond that.

No-one asked for your unquestioning agreement.Just cos you pose these things as straw men / rhetorical questions doesn't make your endless accusations less insulting.

Try to bear in mind:
The bad guys NEVER read these threads.
This is the protected FA board.
Those FA people who practice/promote fat acceptance, dislike being punished (e.g. being constantly bashed on here) for doing a good deed as much as the next person.

now I must unsubscribe. Ugh.

you're right. it is a protected board. i don't pay enough attention to the divisions sometimes. but its just that the idea that someone showing up at events somehow makes him automatically SA is so outside of logic.

I take everyone on individual merit. Most people want that, don't they?


No free rides. I already have a deity.
