The modern political domain is massively, in totalitarian fashion, social, leveling, exhausting. Hence madness is a space of antisocial, apolitical, and paradoxically free individuation” ~ Julia Kristeva

  64. “Fat is a barrier, a bellicose statement to others that, to some, justifies hostility in kind. The world says to the fat person, “Your fatness is an affront to me, so we have the right to treat you as offensively as you appear.” Fat is not merely viewed as another type of tissue, but as a diagnostic sign, a personal statement, and a measure of personality. Too little fat and we see you as being antisocial, fearful and sexless. Too much fat and we see you as slothful, stupid, and sexually hung up.” ~ Albert Ellis
