I Was Thinking About Something Else

That pretty much sums up my life nowadays. I will be doing something, walking into a room or driving, and I will go askew. Someone will inevitably ask at that same moment, "What are you doing?". Which will confuse me and I can only respond, "Yeah, well...I was thinking about something else".

I am tired of hearing about fat people.

Someone I know posted on her facebook page, an article from a feminist blog that concerned a woman who was kicked off the exercise equipment at a women's only gym. She was kicked off for being overweight. The slant from the blog was that there was yet another occasion where fat people were shamed.
I say no. The article mentioned that the woman was offered an aerobics area to work out in or a refund of her membership fee. I say the gym was right. I say the gym protected itself from a lawsuit and protected the woman whose health could be at risk on gym equipment that her body is not ready for. Which is why the alternative aerobics area would have been offered. The fat body needs to be prepared and eased onto gym equipment.
It really frosted me that this, and I do not want to single out this blogger because this does not happen often, was brought under the umbrella of slights against fat people in a sweeping generalization. And anyone will tell you I really hate sweeping generalizations.
I had more but I cannot think of what it was now. I am just so tired of hearing about fat people.

I do not leave a comment, but after browsing
a lot of comments here "I am tired of hearing about fat people.".
I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it simply me or do some of these comments come across like they are
coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at
additional social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have
to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your social networking
sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or
linkedin profile?
