- Ask if you wanna be friends.,
I'm not sure if Mr. Roberts really, truly knows what fat acceptance is or he's correct about it. My understanding is that fat acceptance means that fat people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of how we got fat or why we are fat. We deserve equal access to opportunities in society, to be treated like human beings.
I could be wrong, of course, and Mr. Roberts not, but I am skeptical the message of fat acceptance is that it's okay to be obese and unhealthy, to eat whatever you want, whenever you want and not exercise. He seemed to also get irritated when the use of the word "slay" is used in reference to fat people, I am guessing in regards to clothing and hairstyle and maybe even general physical appearance.
What say you?
