The internet is ablaze with praise for fashion consultant Tim Gunn's latest video, which claims that plus size fashion is this huuuge (pardon the pun) pile of easy money, but no one will take it because of bigotry. Apparently, every designer and retailer hates fat people more than they love money.
Does anyone who knows anything about business believe this for a second? The truth is (and I'm sure Tim Gunn is fully aware of this -- probably what he's doing right now is laying the groundwork for a new line of plus-size clothes or something)... plus size fashion is an extremely difficult problem.

A school field trip was canceled earlier this year after several eighth-grade girls expressed discomfort about having to share a hotel room with an autistic, 13-year-old classmate.
Out came the pitchforks! These girls are a bunch of hateful ableists! How dare they say they don't want to share a hotel room with someone who makes them uncomfortable -- and who might spit, scratch, have a meltdown, or become violent?

I think we can all agree that Everyday Feminism is a Joke, and No One Should Ever Read It. Not only do they give the worst advice to women and other marginalized people on the whole internet (for example, "networking is entitled white people crap"). Not only do they seem to view women as helpless, hopeless victims. But they're also racist and sexist as fuck.
Just take a look at this recent article: Think It's #NotAllMen? These 4 Facts Prove You're Just Plain Wrong.
