I have noticed lately that more and more women are wearing fat suits on TV – either as a comedic gag or under the absurd pretense of presuming to experience what it’s like to be a fat person.
But I think a skinny bitch wearing a fat suit is every bit as offensive as a white jerk wearing a black face. Yet such is the blithe acceptance of discrimination against, and exploitation of, fat people that nobody seems to care.
Even worse, it only perpetuates the notion that women are their own worst enemies that they’re the only ones who treat their fat sisters so cruelly. Think about it: when was the last time you saw a fit man wearing a fat suit…?
So the next time you see a woman on TV wearing one of those fat suits, which invariably makes her look more like the Michelin man than any fat woman I know, change the channel!
