fatFacebook has removed the “feeling fat” option for statuses. An online campaign on change.org received 17,000 signatures asking for the option to be removed.

The campaign said that “fat” was not a feeling. It said that this could be offensive to people who are overweight. It also said that it might hurt people who have body-image problems and cause problems for people who have an eating disorder like anorexia.

Facebook has replaced the “feeling fat” option with “feeling stuffed”.

Vocabulary: campaign (n), signature (n), overweight (adj), eating disorder (n), anorexia (n), stuffed (adj)
