Andrew Sullivan: Defender of Obesity

Andrew Sullivan: Defender of Obesity

Andrew Sullivan, who led “Trig Trutherism,” may now have found a new cause to champion: obesity.

In a new post on his blog entitled “Now We Should Add FA To LGBT?” he cites others who contend that people who are “fat admirers” (FA) should not be stigmatized and that obesity should be championed in the same manner as homosexuality. 

Sullivan has taken a particular interest in the topic fairly often recently–here, here, and here. He offers the idea of protecting obesity as a half-suggestion, possibly as a real proposal, possibly as parody, but generally as a serious prospect for policy.

Mixing the letters of LGBT around like an anagram while adding FA, Sullivan writes: “FAG-BLT maintains both a gay and faintly nutritious aura.”
