Savage Responds to "Lindy-Hello-I-Am-Fat"gate

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Mon, Feb 14, 2011 at 9:48 AM

If you were watching Blogtown over the weekend, you probably read about the dustup over at our sister wife blog Slog, where Lindy West took on her boss Dan Savage regarding the language he uses to label people who are overweight… mmmmmmm… "weight enhanced?" Anyway, that battle got super heated with their commenters who have logged in a whopping 1049 comments (so far anyway). READ ALL THE BACKGROUND HERE, and then hop over to Slog to read Dan's response this morning. Good enough, you think? Or should he have not even bothered? You be the judge!

UPDATE: Okay... umm... now things are getting ridiculous.
