Sizists or People who hate fat people

I periodically go to other cyber community to check out things out.

To my dismay I found a thread called "Fat Girls" on a myspace forum.

God, there were thousands of comments on why "fat chicks" suck...It was scary and disgusting how these young guys justified there hatred for fat women. This one idiot even went on to say "I'm on a mission to eliminate every fat chick from the nightclub scene".

What is this? sounds like fascism at its best, ladies. And there were even a few women who agreed with them that fat women need to be eliminated from the earth. Wtf is going on. And what's worse is that these people seem pretty deplorable as people too. But they think they are superior because they don't tip the scale.

I don't know about you but I find this type of behavior increasing and I'm downright disturbed about it.

What about you? and what can be done about this?

you can always lose weight if you choose to. You can't change your race, gender etc.

So do you think it's okay to ridicule fat people just because it can be changed?

It's flat out discrimination/prejudice that we should not tolerate. There are plenty of heavy people that really can't change their chubbiness. So what should we do? club 'em all? would that be acceptable?

It's the same old story, and an unfortunate facet of human behavior: the need to feel superior. We're more familiar with the kind that's based on religion or skin color, but insecure and unattractive men are targetting us chubbies more and more because they're resentful that the alpha females don't even acknowledge their existence.

Dangerous topic to raise. There are more than a few nasty teenagers (and I'm talking about mental age, not necessarily chronological) in this forum who like to poke fun at "the fatties" on this website. And I don't think they're boys.

There is also the phenominon of the 'internet tough guy' - you know, the martial artist/military commando/incredibly nice guy/perfect lover/etc??? It's easy to talk smack online and say stuff you would never utter out loud in the pressence of others (or even yourself sometimes). Mostly because people would take one look and laugh out lound - it's usually the pot calling the kettle black.

And us humans have an incredible capacity to hate large, faceless groups of people based soley on arbitrary criteria.
