  • No, not at all. Perhaps in the 18-25 scene, but the general population, no.

  • Well anon 1:53, I'm the OP of this question and I'm fat. So I guess you could say I'm asking to be judged. If you don't like it you don't have to read it!

  • This OP again -

    And while I'm on the subject I'm tired of when someone asks a question you and others like you jump up on your high horse about not judging others, when you just judged me for asking the damn question to being with!

  • I do believe that your statement may be valid. I always wondered why it was socially acceptable to be a drunk but ppl gave you a hard time over being fat. Both include excesses but I guess since drunks can sober up and we fat folks can't temporarily deflate, that makes the difference. Great observation and question!

  • yes to a point, partying is "hyped" up in the media while "fat" is downgraded
