|Skinny Confederate soldiers caused Americans to hate fat people|
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.”Since one of the popular Civil War blogs has featured comments on "rape culture" and the hip "privilege" thing, I fully expect that blog to somehow jam this into Civil War "perspective" (remember, it ain't about history). Let's see, maybe this will work:
Since most Confederate soldiers were thin, they were an intricate part of pushing America's bigoted "anti-fat culture" which oppresses and enslaves millions of obese Americans. This oppression is made even worse since much of Southern cuisine is so much more delicious than its Yankee competition and is often fried with lots of butter. We should therefore remove any and all monuments of skinny Confederate soldiers and replace them with one depicting someone more robust, like this:
We should also ban all fried foods as a symbol of oppression and hatred. That is all.
