For the people that act like fat hatred against men isn't that bad



So what we have here is an advertising ploy that tells people they should hurry up and buy that ad space before the fat guy takes all his clothes off.

And not only that but apparently it won some sort of award.

Its a fact that when it comes to fat people simply don't want to see it, even on so called privileged men (because even among so called progressive folks it more important to make sure we all know that fat men have male privilege than to actually talk about the whole fat hatred against men thing). Its bad enough that there are forces at work in our culture that say that men are not allowed to feel desired (which works against people that desire men as well as against men themselves) but as we can see our fat can be used as a marketing ploy.

Fucking great.

All I can say is:

Am I really supposed to be offended by someone's body?

Apparently Bema there is this acceptable weight thing going on and failure to be within that acceptable weight is an invitation for ridicule. F'd up I know....

As it should be. The gentleman in this picture is clearly disgusting and should be kept fully clothed. Granted, I lack the college electives necessarily to feel victimize and with no intention of going back for undergraduate course work, I guess I'll never understand why I should be outrage that people feel free to mock my lack of self-discipline and general laziness.

If you're tired of being mocked, develop some self-discipline, put down the fork, and waddle about some. It's how I lost weight and it can work for you :-P

I'm not familiar with your blog Danny, but is "History Punk" being serious?

Damn I've been doing my thing her in relative quite for so long I had come to believe I wasn't on anyone's radar. Well now,

The gentleman in this picture is clearly disgusting and should be kept fully clothed.
Please define "clearly disgusting" and how exactly does requiring him to kept fully clothed make anymore sense than you and anyone else who is so disgusted by him just, oh I don't know, not looking at him?

And apparently you lack the basic respect to understand the difference between not liking and mocking. Sure if you don't want to look at the guy or you find him unattractive by all means do so. However that's not quite on par with telling him that your preferences trump his existence and that he needs to cover up because you might see him.

Actually I am developing that. And I'm putting the fork down too.

However I have a challenge for you. Prove that it is actually justified to mock and shame someone just because they don't meet your own standards. Prove that by not falling in your acceptable is grounds to berate someone to the point of nearly being suicidal. Prove that that man's body was disgusting by something other than your own opinion (and I say that because while you have the right to your opinion you seem to think that your opinion is an undeniable fact). Prove that that ad agency was right to make an ad that basically says, "Hey if you don't want to see this fat guy strip then buy this space and put something else here."

I'm not sure if they are but I've responded just in case. We'll see.
