That wasn't exactly my point. There's no need to stop using the word, but I can appreciate the gesture.
I don't know any fat person that doesn't acknowledge that they are fat. It isn't the word itself that offends, it is the way the person uses the term "fat" that offends. There is an unfortunate stigma, or derogatory connotation, that is more attached to the word "fat" than "overweight, husky, plump, or chubby" and it comes out in posts like LOVEMYMAXANDK's above (not to belabor that post.. just use it as an example, sorry!)
Vicky appears to be a nasty, rude, abrasive, offensive wench down to her core. She just happens to be fat, too.
