Yikes - I haven't heard many reasons not to love what PCRM does, but I have to agree with @VeganSaurus on this one... http://t.co/S80llZBh

WHY IS #PCRM FAT SHAMING AGAIN? WEREN'T YOUR "CHEESE THIGHS" ENOUGH? FYI: #VEGANISM IS NOT A DIET & COMPASSION COMES IN ALL SHAPES & SIZES.

Love this thoughtful piece on the latest @pcrm ads that shame fat people (and which make me SO angry!): http://t.co/loyXnLAi

ICYMI: @theveganrd's spot-on response to @PCRM's latest fat-bashing campaign, and her bold decision. http://t.co/7GXmowaE

+1 @veganscore: @PCRM I'm totally heartbroken about your new ad. I'd rather sit with a fat vegan than a righteous skinny person any day.
Matt Ruscigno @MattRuscigno
.@PCRM resorted to fat-shaming again despite many RD's complaints. Now @theVeganRD resigned from their board! Props. http://t.co/fmz3UIIJ
@cinnamaldehyde @cinnamaldehyde
via @PCRM http://t.co/QQ88FFzc because @NealDBarnard is an ignoramus. ignoring #vegan ideals AND alienating fat people. Nice job! #fail

Fat Vegans: Why We Matter. (a.k.a. the thing @pcrm doesn't seem to get) http://t.co/Hr1eZIhn Important to me so I'm asking you to please RT
@cinnamaldehyde @cinnamaldehyde
@colgado_el thanks for the link, although i don't like the term "fat pride." prefer size acceptance. @eyspahn @TrueLoveHealth @Liseyduck
@cinnamaldehyde @cinnamaldehyde
@colgado_el size acceptance is about ALL sizes. we shouldn't shame ANY size, including fat sizes. @eyspahn @TrueLoveHealth @Liseyduck
Whitney Lauritsen @ecovegangal
@colgado_el well, I still support most of what PCRM does, I was actually more uncomfortable that the ad portrayed meat eaters as grotesque..
Whitney Lauritsen @ecovegangal
@colgado_el and as we know, veganism does not equal thinness, especially with all the junk food - so that was inaccurate in the PCRM ad
Whitney Lauritsen @ecovegangal
@colgado_el overall, I think the PCRM ad was distasteful and not a good way to advocate for veganism - I would prefer to see more compassion
