Talk:Fat furs

Removed minor political slant[edit]

I changed the phrase "overweight or obese" to simply "fat" in the two places where it occurs. "Overweight" implies two things: a deviation from the norm (which it usually isn't -- the stastical norm is higher than most Americans think), and an error in being. It's like referring to dark-skinned people as "Underwhite". "Obese" is a medical term of pathology. Even if you reject the idea that these words are negative, they *are* different from "fat".

I'm also not sure this article should deal so specifically with fetishism. That seems like the world's general treatment of furs... but I'm not an active part of the community, so I'll leave it to those who are to decide whether it's accurate.

Great pic, BTW! :) --Tom Howling 16:04, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Image Change[edit]

I have to change the image because I personally find it offensive to many viewers. I think Wiki Fur should be kept PG rated as possible. ChuongChoSoi 04:44, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
