How Do You Feel About the Word Fat?
Earlier this week, Jenn railed on the use of the word “fat” in the title of Jackie Warner’s latest book, This Is Why You’re Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever): Eat More, Cheat More, Lose More—and Keep the Weight Off. In fact, Jenn wouldn’t mind kicking the F-word to the curb, much like the guy in the photo above is doing. I tend to agree; there are so many options in the English language that aren’t so negative, but I guess it does get your attention on this book cover. Some people embrace fat, others think it’s demeaning. Does the word bother or offend you?
