    Akun got a reaction from Techno in Just putting it out there: I'm more than 150 pounds/70kg, so maybe I'm not fat enough   
    Just my take on the whole Sydney Watson smear campaign that the mainstream news outlets have performed on her because of supposedly "fat-shaming." I've talked to her, she talked about her side of the story, and it's definitely not fat-shaming in my opinion, speaking as someone who's chubby myself.
    She was sandwiched on a flight between two obese individuals, and the airline's response was that "Our passengers come in all shapes and sizes," when the discrimination against someone's weight wasn't really the issue Sydney was trying to bring up here, but the fact that she was uncomfortably squeezed between two individuals. That's the focal point of the issue these outlets failed to grasp.
