Laugher of the Day

Via Ace comes word about yet more college nuttery, this time a "seminar" at Swarthmore College called “Fat Justice and Feminism.” It's led by "feminist activist" Cora Segal and self-identified “angry, man-hating lesbian,” Nicole Sullivan who, among other things, blame Ronald Reagan for the bloated among us's suffering, and claim that the inventor of the BMI -- Body Mass Index -- had "direct links to a white supremacist." These dolts also claim that “there is no scientific consensus whatsoever that fat people need to exercise more, or that fat is unhealthy," and (surprise!) provided no back-up to their claims about Reagan and the inventor of the BMI.

I agree that the BMI is flawed. However to suggest that it is not unhealthy to be fat is ludicrous. I have lost 3 and a half stone and have never felt better.

Indeed, Andrew. My fianceé has lost 20 lbs. and feels fantastic. A teaching colleague of mine had gastric bypass a decade or so ago and has never felt, and been, better.

I've lost about 10 lbs since the New Year began and already I feel better. These "fat justice" (so they have classes in THAT now? Yeesh!) feminists are complete idiots if they think that being fat is not unhealthy. Where do they find these clowns? Is there a moonbat temp agency out there?
