Fat Rant

Apropos the post below, I ran across this on CNN just a few minutes ago. It's a good rant. One thing that I especially liked was her comment about the 200 pound barrier. Listening to a lot of sports radio and reading sports blogs (believe it or not misogyny is still rampant in sports, who knew?), I see and hear a lot of disparaging comments about fat women and how gross and disgusting they are. Often reference is made to 200 pounds as some kind of obscene number. There are a whole lot of 200+ pound women out there, and believe it or not, many of them are actually attractive. For one example, watch the video.
