You might want to read through this before you bring your fat spouse to the doctor or if you just looking for another peep-hole into the crazy world of Fat Acceptance. I wonder if Fat Bastard or Proud Plumpette might be able to share some of their experiences there.
The interesting thing about FA is how is how the members want to be teated both as a protected (disabled) class with all the special accommodations (ramps for the jazzys, larger stalls, larger wheelchairs, etc) and also want to be treated "just like everyone else." Really? This woman honestly does not think that being obese brings on additional medical risks? I don't blame the first Dr. at all. He's simply protecting himself from a potential lawsuit.
