What Is Wrong With "Fat"?


What is wrong with the word fat? Why is everybody afraid to say it? It's like a curse word for crying out loud. I'm the kid of girl that calls it like I see it and honey I'm FAT! I much rather be called fat than morbidly obese...what the hell is morbidly obese anyhow?

I leave you with a quote from one of my favorite comedians...

"I use the word 'fat'. I use that word because that's what people are: they're fat. They're not bulky; they're not large, chunky, hefty or plump. And they're not big-boned. Dinosaurs were big-boned. These people are not overweight: this term somehow implies there is some correct weight... There is no correct weight. Heavy is also a misleading term. An aircraft carrier is heavy; it's not fat. Only people are fat, and that's what fat people are! They're fat !" ~ George Carlin. (RIP...I miss you)
