OK, but you were also defending the right to fat-shame and other types of shaming as a part of free speech. “The term “Fat Shaming” is just a form of shaming in itself and like all shaming is designed to silence grown up debate about these issues, which includes encouraging fat people to take responsibility for their condition, if only for themselves.” That’s entirely different than supporting and encouraging people to be more healthy.
