Stolen Exchange

Yea, I’d read the Card article on fat earlier, and I couldn’t figure out what was bothering me so much about it, because, of course, I mostly agreed (bah!).

But luckily, Alas caught Card’s bizarre lack of self-reflection:

You think fat people don’t know how they’re despised? You think they don’t want to be different?

Gosh, Orson, like all those Mormon fags you condemn to hell with righteous indignation because you just can’t understand why they can’t “control” themselves?

But of course, some people don’t mind being fat [or otherwise “other”], or may, in fact [horror!] enjoy it: I do have a deep fear of being small and weak and enjoy being big and strong, but, ahem, I digress.

Funny that he writes that sentence without any self-reflection at all.

See, being biased against people “who just are that way” is always oh so much less moral when the “group” in question is one you’re a part of…

Card is a fucktard. The sooner everybody realizes they’re in the same goddamn boat, the better.

We’ll be able to get more shit done.
