The Pedant mentioned in passing that he’s dated a few “plus sized” women in the past. It came up because I was bitching about women’s clothing and how it doesn’t seem to be made for anyone with actual hips and breasts. He offered anecdotes about plus-size exes who also had problems buying clothes (one of whom was OtherGirl, his most recent ex with whom he “really saw a future”). His tone when mentioning these plus-size exes was factual and didn’t imply judgement or regret.
So maybe his previous tossed-out comments about “So-and-so really let herself go” and “pffft! Medication doesn’t make you fat” were just one-offs and not indicative of some huge fat-hate problem. I hope so.
