"It’s not about our health. It’s about the big fat fact that many people have been socialized to find us unpleasant to look at."

Socialised my ass. Millions of years of evolution have conditioned us to be able to recognise sickly members of our species with obvious implications for the perpetuation of said species; There are specific, highly recognisable bio markers of health and also of ill health... guess which category obesity falls into?

Stupid fats. Do you even evolutionary biology?

And health is an attractive trait, just like a certain hips to waist ratio for women and shoulders to waist ratio for men. But, you know. Science doesn't hold any weight for those people. There is no worse deaf man than the one who doesn’t want to hear.

Yes those would fall under the aforementioned "highly recognisable bio markers of health" within our species.

Fats are just willfully ignorant.

Disclaimer: C&S is drunk.

There’s a lot about being fat that’s pretty awesome.

Name one thing.

Claiming it’s my fault because I’m so fat that I overflow from my seat.

All of my wut?

Is it any wonder people get annoyed with barge asses when they blame their planetary girth problem on ANYTHING but themselves. The cheeky fucker even says there are benefits that come with being fat - but doesn't list them!

Because it's just showboating. There aren't any benefits to being a calorie hoarder

The title is enough to piss me off.

Why are we so bothered by fat people on airplanes?

The word "we" implies the author is either explaining or questioning their own distaste for fats on planes. That is not the title to use to defend one's own adipose against the distaste of others.

Using "we" to really mean "you" when making a criticism is considered a form of condescension. But in the case of a fat, the problem is caused by the fat and not the fat shamers, so the condescension is clearly undeserved, pathetic, and ridiculous.

Whenever I fly, I make DAMN sure being seated next to a fatty means it's the end of the world in covert ways. The deer in headlights look as Walrus McWaddles lumbers up. If the pig passes by, I let out a big sigh, and mutter a thank god, just enough for fatty to hear. If fatty enters the row, I groan loudly and fire eye daggers. I go out of my way to embarrass, and discomfort the vile swine as much as I can. In hopes it'll either jump off a cliff, or never fly again.

I'm going to adopt your method too! Years ago I was patient for a 2 hour flight with a fact fuck in coach. His arms etc spilled over onto me and he kept bugging the stewardess at the most inappropriate times over petty shit (mostly to get cans of Coke). He was 100% oblivious to how he affected others - really thick skinned, inconsiderate and shameless. I vowed never again to give an inch to fat selfish fucks in any situation but now I will follow your lead and be more 'proactive' and aggressive in my efforts.

Why are we so bothered by fat people on airplanes? | The Daily Dot

'It’s about the big fat fact that many people have been socialized to find us unpleasant to look at. '

'Aside from the fact that I highly doubt his flight attendant was actually fat (airlines have very strict “appearance standards” and “being fat” doesn’t generally fit within corporate policy), his comment was highly telling. '

'To be fat and proud, to be fat and alive and happy, is to be suspect, and I am reminded of this when I board an aircraft. '

'It took years of a gradual shift over time, but there came a point when I looked in the mirror one day and realized that I was incontrovertibly, unavoidably, very obviously fat, small-f fat—not big-F Fat, but still, fat. '

'It doesn’t happen to all fat people, and it doesn’t happen all the time, and the level of hatred you encounter when flying while fat is heavily dependent on how fat you are—an inbetweenie, like me, a Death Fat, these are different experiences. '
