Of course: another group of victims! Fat 'activist' rails against 'thin privilege' and 'fat oppression'

"Fatphobia"?  "Thin privilege"? You have to read this to believe it.

. . . Tovar’s talk, entitled “Dispelling Myths: Fat, Fatphobia, and Challenging Social Stereotypes,” was designed to help students understand that “fat phobia” is rampant in a “white, heteronormative society” that is looking to actively oppress people with larger body types. Society’s bias against fat people is, apparently, a form of bigotry and discrimination, evident in everything from sexual preferences to the size of seats on public transportation.She even, reportedly, compared society’s anti-fat culture to so-called “rape culture,” and chastised society for its obsession with what she termed “thin privilege.”
. . . "As predictable as this "social justice" madness has become, the damage it does to society is real and lasting. We are being Balkanized by those who are slicing our culture into ever smaller pieces, each with an "authentic" voice of oppression. The goal is to eliminate "normal" as a dominant feature in society. We should be able to tolerate anyone. But when they start demanding special treatment to make white males pay for their perceived (or delusional) oppression, it is right and proper to slap them down and point out how ludicrous their importunings are."
