    haha @ that doctor trying to justify her bigotry against fat people. 200 lb cut off? That’s not even obese for certain (non-giant) heights. And then she has the gall to say obesity is socially acceptable. Maybe it is, unless you try and go to some bigot doctor.

    LOL! Yes, known as the “headless fatty” across weight loss and fat acceptance forums everywhere.
