Seriously, these terms have as much baggage as you heap upon them. I have no issue with being called an FA because to me all that means is "someone who prefers a fat partner". I don't see why it has to mean anything more than that.Labels describe, not define.
The sooner people realize this, the happier people will be about it.
It's something to be avoided, like people who think that reality TV represents real life and uses opinions expressed on there to back up their arguments.If anyone viewed tonight's episode of "Big Sexy," you saw the girls repeatedly using the phrase "chubby chasers" as a term of absolute disgust, to identify the kinds of men they want nothing to do with (in contrast to the men who simply prefer fuller-figured women, which they find fine).
And this is a view voiced by plus-size girls themselves.
So in the real world, the phrase signifies someone who is repellent. It's a term to be avoided.
