You know how we keep talking about how folks on the left have a major problem with fat people?
Here’s a real bad, real common take on how we’re to blame for America’s xenophobia & racism. https://t.co/GdDBJvetvo
Like. There is MAJOR implicit erasure of fat immigrants, refugees & people of color here. MAJOR.
There is also an extremely common, easy-to-reach-for disdain on the left for a particular kind of imagined person who becomes a sort of symbol for the hedonism, self-centeredness & arrogance of conservatism.
And that person is almost always fat.
