Paul: Fat Rights/Gay Rights (I want to send you over there with the explicit request to read the post as it's intended, which is not to play Oppression Olympics, but point out how one group (fat people) is being marginalized in ways which should be extremely familiar to progressives, because nearly the exact same arguments were used to to marginalize another group (gay people), and, in some cases, still are. Though it may be tempting to some people, for various reasons, to point out the differences between the two, and there are differences, it is the similarities from which we could learn something. I also recommend some of Paul's comments, particularly here, here, and here. Please be warned there are people playing Oppression Olympics in comments, sometimes to offensive effect.)
