This is brilliant. I'm mostly saving it for my own later use, but I also wanted to share it.

"21 Things to Stop Saying Unless You Hate Fat People"

(If I were writing the article I would rephrase that to "...unless you want to contribute to hatred and discrimination against fat people." I know, I know, that doesn't pack the same rhetorical punch.)

1. Trigger warning for comments -- they might discuss examples of fat hatred.
2. I am instituting rules for the comments of this post. Do not promote any of the things listed as fat-hating. Also do not quibble about whether items on the list count as promoting fat hatred. You might well want to quibble, because even I don't agree with all of items, but please do it somewhere other than in comments to this entry. I'm going to delete comments that don't follow the rules. If I delete your comment, it doesn't mean I hate you.
