A Couple of Observations

[Content Note: Fat bias.]

It's interesting, ahem, how often "I would like fat people to be more visible in media" gets misrepresented as "I demand to see fat people in every piece of media ever produced."

Obviously that happens because arguing against the former is a lot harder than arguing against the latter, which is seen to be totally unreasonable.

It is funny, though, how it is considered unreasonable to want to see fat people everywhere, even though we are everywhere. We're so the fuck everywhere that we are epidemic.

There are so many of us that we are going to ruin the entire healthcare system and the entire economy, but so few of us that we needn't expect to see ourselves on TV.
