The writer of that article isn't sorry for anything, she's sorry that there was such a response and people found her to be insensitive and ignorant. Shame on her!

This woman (the blog author) has a history of anorexia. Weight is a huge issue for her. Controlling weight is a huge issue for her.

As my mom used to say, consider the source.

Yeah, I think the author may have some personal issues to sort out.

In spite of her assertion to the contrary, she IS a size-ist jerk. If she weren't, she would also be complaining about how television implicitly promotes murder, rape, adultery, and a whole slew of other things that are much more harmful to society than obesity. She is picking on fat people because, unfortunately, they're one of the last groups in society that it's "OK" to hate.

Not all people are physically attractive, whether it's because they're obese, or elderly, or just weren't fortunate enough to be born with attractive features. (I suppose she thinks those people shouldn't have intimate relationships either.)

Get over it. There are more important things in life than how someone looks.
