I thought we were progressive

Normally I don't say anything, but... the discussion about fat folks forced to fly on SouthWest and whether we need to buy another ticket on ask strikes me as fat bashing, which is not really what the poster asked for. [more inside]

Enough with the fat jokes.

Enought with the fat haters already. The post was cute, was it really neccessary to mock the photographer's appearance?

Fark fat-bashing fusion

It's farkish and fatty-bashing in one convenient post!

Seriously, what do we hope to accomplish with this?

yuckkkkkkkkkkkkk

23324 - The Grand Cabaret : apparently deleted because "It's just you. Really." Are we saying that it was deleted because everyone disagreed with the poster (they didn't) or because it was likely to offend people (which many other threads risk).

Personally, my brain can't cope when The Sun can run a sensible article about bigger women while MetaFilter responds with "yuckkkkkkkkkkkkk".
