Fat Jokes Aren’t Funny… They Hurt.

There was a very interesting article a few days ago in USATODAY.com on the op-ed page by Barbara D’Sousa about how fat jokes aren’t funny. It compares, I think quite eloquently, anti-fat person jokes to jokes about people of color, women, etc.

The article points out how many jokes and even whole movies (Shallow Hal and the Nutty Professor just to name a couple) are basically just two-hour fat jokes.

It also points out how, for over-weight people, these jokes (and millions like them) are hurtful and mean.

What do YOU think?  Care to comment?
It was well done, and the article made a great point.
