Oh for F#@k's Sake

[Content Note: Fat hatred; eliminationism.]

A new study has found that there are "six different 'types' of obese people in existence."

Yes. That is a real thing in the world.

A study that tells us that all fat people aren't the same after all! There are SIX WHOLE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FAT PEOPLE! Can you even believe it?! Extraordinary!

Ha ha don't worry, though—we still all definitely need to be "fixed." I mean, the whole reason to spend money on such an insightful and groundbreaking study is to help doctors determine, based on which "type" we are, how to turn us into thin people.

Because, of course, the ideal number of "types" of fat people will always and forever be zero.

This is fat hatred. This is dehumanization. This is eliminationism.
