Oh, Look Who's Helping!

Mr. Helpy Q. Helpington wants to help fat people with his awesome powers of helptastic helpfulness:
Some people are racists, some are elitists. Some people are fattists.

While you've never considered yourself a person who discriminates against others, you might be in danger of becoming a "fattist."

...So fattists make fat people feel bad about their extra weight by pointing, snickering, sneering and laughing about other people's appearance.

Unfortunately, it's counterproductive. It only makes overweight people feel worse about themselves and they instinctively do what fat people do best -- eat.
