The whole idea that we should be nicer to a person just because he has a preference only serves to exacerbate the idea that being fat is something wrong, different, other. That the few people who DO like fat girls should be encouraged and get special treatment because oh, goodness gracious, we wouldn’t want to scare them off!
Newsflash: chubby chasers are a dime a dozen.
If I want to be a dick to someone because he’s told me he’s a chubby chaser or an FA, I have every right to do that. The connotation there, for too long, for too many people, is too strong. I am not a fetish, and I’m more than my body type. I don’t give a fuck if you’re an FA, a chubby chaser, or if you don’t define yourself at all. If you objectify me or my body, I don’t have to be ‘civil’. I don’t have to be a ‘lady.’ I don’t have to THANK you for finding me attractive. I will not reward bad behavior.
