I dot believe that fat people should be discriminated against, but this movement has gone too far. You should not feel good about being fat, and you should be proud. Fat shaming is a problem, but don't be proud of your body if you are overweight.

One should not be ashamed of their own body in terms of being socially stigmatized. Yet, at the same time we, as society in the marketplace of ideas should not encourage maintenance of a lifestyle that is empirically demonstrated and unhealthy. We shouldn't make fun of the fat guy at the gym for example, they are taking responsibility and trying to do something about it. We also shouldn't bully people of size but rather offer positive encouragement for them to change and the reasons why it is important.

Being fat is not something that should be made fun of or accepted. I have nothing against people who are fat - but if they encourage being fat and 'feeling good', they pose a horrible role model for people. Being fat is not good, but it shouldn't be shamed. Being fat poses health problems to yourself, and to encourage this is taking fat pride a bit too far.
