I found this amusing story from Hong Kong that I thought I’d share with you all. Just like multiculturalism and feminism, fat acceptance doesn’t seem to fly in Asia. Of course, I don’t endorse authorities randomly detaining fat women; nevertheless, this incident illustrates the chasm separating Western and Asian sensibilities. In East Asia, the evil machinations of fatphobia resulted in officials merely claiming that there was a miscommunication. The process only took 7 minutes, and there was no need for sensitivity training or soul-searching. There were no Lindy West’s penning editorials decrying thin privilege.
Kind of reminds you of what sane societies untainted by the cancer known as the New Left look like. Not that East Asia doesn’t have its own pathologies, but it still makes you think.
In the meantime, I’m going to eat some high-carb popcorn and enjoy the freak show that is modern America.
