You truly believe that, don't you?

That is called self-acceptance. Accepting my lot in life does not mean I should be claiming enlightenment due to my ailment/impairment/shitty fucking lifestyle choices, it came from deep introspection and a truckload of work. That should be the message.

Fat acceptance says I should accept that fat people are beautiful, too. Fuck that.

I had been fat all my life (still about 20lbs over my ideal BMI), like seriously fat. Morbidly obese was the term. I worked my ass off to lose half my body mass.

Losing weight didn't grant me enlightenment, it just made me lighter. Enlightenment came from the years of mental struggle, overcoming my own demons that got me to that weight.

Fuck that. Celebrating what makes a person shitty is not good.

But what do I know, I don't own a media outlet.

Living in Allston in the early 90's and some friends of mine (L0pht, NewHackCity, CDC, etc...) ran all kinds of boxen. Solaris, Mac, and something brand new called Linux. I loved the power and efficiency. I loved how configurable it was. I wasn't even in college at the time (broke adult).

Slackware on a 486dx4-25. Gotta admit, I miss the days of hacking hardware to get it to do what you want.

God, remember when Linux fit on a floppy?
