BNF problems

boathouse, writing
I flipped through the current issue of Doctor Who Magazine and skimmed Steven Moffat's column.  He had given a short speech and a fan came up to him and said something like, "You got away with it when you talked about 'fat girls.'"

Moffat replied that he hadn't said "fat girls."  He'd said "fangirls."

The fan objected that guys can be fans, too.

Moffat said yes, that's why he'd said "fangirls and fanboys."

The fan said but as I was saying, you got away with putting down fat people.

Moffat tried one last time to point out that he hadn't mentioned the word "fat" at all (while noting that he is not thin, himself).  It didn't work.

Sigh. There's just no arguing with the self-righteously offended.

SMH...there's no reasoning with some fans ...

*facepalms*

I often wonder how much of the stuff that filters through to reach everyone is affected in this way.
