I think that the gender binary should be done away with.

Some people, even peasants, did well in medieval times. Surely many people did okay. They adjusted to what was presented to them, including all the bad smells and insects running along a person’s body. They had festivals, and good times in general. People made friends, and got along.

But if something was slightly awry then, things could go really bad for you. If you got in debt, say, it was very difficult to get yourself out of debt, and you could have gone to prison for it (up to the 19th century). If somebody wanted to rat on you, you could get in trouble for something you didn’t do. The courts tended not to be as fair as they are now (though that’s not saying much!)

Race is completely arbitrary and fake, and the entire concept should be done away with.

Lack of empathy doesn't make someone dangerous or evil

I feel like there’s many different types of people—not just two types.

Being fat is bad not because it makes you look like a pig but because it's unhealthy. Further, those unnecessarily unhealthy people cost the public healthcare system. So, criticizing fat people has a legitimate reason.

in these days when everybody seems to need a scapegoat, criticizing folks with unfortunate metabolisms they can't really help much about, is simply unfair.

Normal weight people get sick, too.
