[...and ditto here.]
[gratuituous, unhelpful sarcasm liberally snipped here...]
I'll leave 'witty' to the discretion of the reader, but I'm afraid
that I think it's a bit much to call this remark 'accurate'. In what
sense is it 'accurate' to imply that only one who weighs 350lb would
object to this image?
In general terms, the nasty tactic of insulting a woman's (presumed?)
appearance, rather than responding to the substance of her position
itself, is seen all too often when gender issues like these are
discussed. I don't think it's a nice habit.
To make a slightly distasteful joke in an unguarded moment on IRC is
hardly a crime, but I don't think this particular remark deserves to
be held up as a paragon of insight, free thinking, accuracy, etc.,
