I definitely am comfortable with the word fat gabapentin medication. I mean, it’s part of the language that my community uses. And I like the words like curvy. I like the words are attractive, like Zaftig. But I don’t like them in the sense that…when they’re used as euphemisms to NOT use the word fat. So now that I use the word fat, then it’s like then every other word is also available because I’m not using them just to kind of, like, NOT use the word fat.
