Creo que es un error utilizar la obesidad como insulto. Hay que basarnos en las acciones de las personas no en su apariencia física.

la obesidad, más que un estado de ánimo, es una condena de desánimo gracias a gente como ésta

I'm signing this petition because I'm fat and I'm against discrimination towards people in trouble like me ... we do not choose to become fat but our difficulties are poured into the food and it is not right that a social network (not a page) will make fun of us .... if there was the emoticon for those who feel gay?

This contributes to how lousy our culture is at dealing with body image issues.

You wouldn't have a "feeling black" or "feeling judeo-Christian" or "feeling bipolar" option. Even if people do sometimes feel that way, reading that can be offensive to people in those groups. Why single out "fat" people and include a double chin? Ugh

Fat is not a feeling and body shaming is disgusting.

This idea is wrong! Why not a
Retarded symbol or I hate Ovomit symbol?

Having had anorexia I don't think it's right to make light of these things and to encourage such feelings of guilt around food. Facebook shouldn't be endorsing this kind of unhealthy attitude.
