Welcome to 2016. The year 'safe spaces' for overweight homosexuals is the topic of discussion at universities.
The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is hosting a book discussion on “the anti-fat stigma that persists in American culture” and will focus on “fat, gay men.”

The book in question is called “Fat, Gay Men: Mirth, Girth, and the Politics of Stigma” and its author Dr. Jason Whitesel will be in attendance.
The UCSB Resource Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity event description reads, “To be fat in a thin-obsessed gay culture can be difficult. Despite affectionate in-group monikers for big gay men—chubs, bears, cubs—the anti-fat stigma that persists in American culture at large still haunts these individuals who often exist at the margins of gay communities.”

Author Jason Whitesel “delves into the world of Girth & Mirth, a nationally known social club dedicated to big gay men” which apparently “has long been a refuge and ‘safe space’ for such men.”
Campus Reform was alerted to the event by student Carlos Flores, who heard about it in a newsletter.
He told the website, “As I understand it, they're using taxpayer money and my tuition dollars to talk about how to sodomize overweight men, which doesn't seem like the best use of that money.”
“I don't think the university should be using my funds to hold a morally questionable event—they're free to do it, but I'd rather they spent someone else's money,” he added.
