Heh. I’ve used this argument when discussing things such as sexually unacceptable jokes, horrible comments on looks and weight, and the general attitude a lot of male soldiers have about women (both in the Army and not).
Come now, you know that people who have nasty things to say about fat people look at their fat parents, siblings, children, friends, neighbors, anyone and really wishes they would just lose the weight… for their health, of course.
Don’t get me wrong, they love mom (dad, sis, etc,) but they are embarrassed by them and with they would stop being so damned fat.
In short, were they to actually read the blog post, they would roll their eyes and think it was just another lazy fattie making excuses.
