    Akun got a reaction from Techno for a status update, Just putting it out there: I'm more than 150 pounds/70kg, so maybe I'm not fat enough   
    Just putting it out there: I'm more than 150 pounds/70kg, so maybe I'm not fat enough to speak about this. That being said, I've always tried to not inconvenience others with my own flaws or insecurities. I don't think I have a sense of entitlement in that manner. So if my weight is causing someone else to be sandwiched in between me and another overweight person... I'll usually take the responsibility and move somewhere else. It's my problem, not theirs. Them being annoyed about being touched by a stranger in that way (or being a literal human sandwich on a flight) has nothing to do with weight, especially if they had a history of being sexually assaulted. It's not fat-shaming.
    People really need to stop calling out discrimination when there is none. It dilutes the meaning of the words and makes them meaningless in the long run, because if everyone is a discriminating bigot, discrimination itself has no meaning. Use these terms correctly.

    I wrote an article (haven't written an article in more than a year) discussing my exhaustion with this cultural divide we have today between races and genders, a divide that's fueled by both social media and the mainstream media.
