"You cannot hate people for their own good."

I love Kate Harding.
If you have never read her fat acceptance manifesto you should.
Just a few choice quotes:

"7. Human beings deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Fat people are human beings.

8. Even fat people who are unhealthy still deserve dignity and respect. Still human beings. See how that works?

9. In any case, shaming teh fatties for being “unhealthy” doesn’t fucking help. If shame made people thin, there wouldn’t be a fat person in this country, trust me. I wish I could remember who said this, ’cause it’s one of my favorite quotes of all time: “You cannot hate people for their own good.”

Jezebel reminded me how much a dig this chick.
