This stuff right here. ^

Fat people exist. They're fat, but they're still people. They deserve to be treated like people. To quote Wil Wheaton, "Don't be a dick".

That's about as far as the whole "external acceptance on a social level" thing should go, IMO. Viewing it as unhealthy should not be frowned upon, because to think otherwise is to delude yourself. Because it's not healthy. It just isn't.

Oh, and that bit about deleting content/suspending accounts... I think it's possible that happened because of boobies/naked, not because of fat people.
