Hello, my name is Charlie, and I'm fat. I developed type 2 diabetes in my thirties due to my poor health and eating habits. I wanted to talk openly about my struggles, and since laughter is the best medicine, I started a semi-autobiographical webcomic titled Big Fat Charlie.

Working on this comic has been therapeutic and has helped me cope with my struggles. I've been contacted by more than one person who's said that they find my comic entirely relatable. Thank you for reading. Please enjoy.

only thing WORSE than "all lives matter" is BLUE lives matter. like what the hell??? BLUE is not a LIFE. you can quit your job and take off your uniform. you cant take off ur blackness????

The other one that's worse than "all lives matter" is "blue lives matter." Black lives matter is not a f*cking invitation to silence and oppress people by twisting their words, and it's not that hard to say or understand. The people who say "all/blue lives matter" are racist, either by deliberately trying to undermine the message of Black lives matter, or by ignoring the fact racism is still a problem.

Some people are just too ignorant of everything going on against black people, so they try to say that "all lives matter" because they feel that saying "black lives matter" is racist against white people. I used to side with the all lives matter movement just simply because I wasn't aware of all of the racism that does happen. By saying 'oh, you're just racist', it stops anyone who's too ignorant to want to know why people say they're racist, and they keep saying what they're saying.

black live do not matter to other black people ..just look at chicago..they just don`t care until it is a cop and then lookout here come the protests/riots

BLM doesn't care about the black communities they destroyed, the black businesses they burnt down and the black murders they committed or any of the chaos they are causing. They have caused more deaths during their riots than the ones they are protesting about.

Citation please. Since your "facts" are bogus, let me link you to a peer-reviewed, research study conducted by three respected universities, concluding that Black men in the U.S. have a 1 in 1,000 chance of being killed by the police. www.prisonpolicy.org/scans/police_mort_open.pdf

So, I can say White Lives Matter and no one can get offended because I am not saying that they matter more or that others don't, I am just acknowledging that white lives also matter.

Andy Acceber

Dawn, when someone says "Save the Rainforest," they're not saying "Fuck all other types of forests." They're calling attention to the rainforest because it's endangered. In the U.S., Black lives are in danger. Black men have a 1 in 1,000 risk of dying from a police officer - a risk 2.5 times higher than for a white man. (The risk for you, if you're a white woman, is 1 in 30,000.) You just sound really, really ignorant crying for attention when your risk is 1/30,000 and a Black man's risk is 1/1,000. I know it's shocking, but you're in very little danger, so this moment isn't about you.

'I'm Pro Life. As opposed to the other point of view: Pro Death!' I really did hear a conservative person make that statement. See, I could take the logic of this claim and apply it to the 'Pro Life' movement: Everyone is in favor of 'life', of existence right? So why can't you just say that you agree w/ groups that are Pro Life and called things like ''California Right To Life'? Or are you against the right of people to live, to exist, in California?!! - Obviously we know that Pro Life and Right to Life groups are saying a lot more than that they merely favor existence. They're also clearly saying very controversial things, e.g. 'No abortions, even for pregnancy from rape.' BLM, at least some facets of it, is a movement saying things like 'Abolish Police'. Well we don't all agree w/ that one and it's hardly obvious and unassailable as an idea, it's actually an extreme and radical idea. Some BLMers think violence is now justified for their cause, which is also extremely questionable.

Abolishing police isn't extreme or radical. We're the only nation on Earth that has police do all that we ask them to do. Why do police handle mental health emergencies? Wouldn't that be better left to social workers? Wouldn't it make more sense to fund social workers and "abolish" that task from police responsibilities? This will gradually lead to a smaller police force - which is good. No one is advocating for complete abolishment without a plan in place to address community needs.

The US Invasion of Iraq was called 'Operation Iraqi Freedom'. You agree that the people of Iraq should be free right? So why can't you just say you agree with Operation Iraqi Freedom! You now have to go around saying 'I agree with Operation Iraqi Freedom!'

George Floyd was a criminal. There are countless innocent black people who died in police shootings, maybe choose one of THEM as your flagship.

Even criminals deserve their day in court (unless they're actively killing people and cannot be subdued). Is $20 really that important to you?
