Ellen Pao is now gone as CEO of Reddit. Good riddance even if it was some strategy to enact unpopular changes and then have a scapegoat. I don’t believe the Reddit staff is that smart, personally.
But at least one person at Slashdot understands what the bans were really about.
Don’t mistake what the FPH ban was : a political move to gain mainstream political correctness point in the eyes of the HAES and FA movements. Remember : 70% of americans are now overweight (source : http://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/health-statistics/Pages/overweight-obesity-statistics.aspx [nih.gov]). It pays to cater to the majority.
The Fat Acceptance SJWs think they won a great victory. But if SJW crap falls out of favor, their subreddits will also be shitcanned faster than a CEO racks up dollars in Caymans bank accounts. (By the way, I think Pao was making $500 an hour as CEO, not that high as far as CEOs go.)
FA in my mind stands for “Failure Acceptance” these days. FA: for when you’ve well and truly given up.
