Fat people - you don't realize how terrible it is to fly next to you. Sure, get indignant and upset about how you're treated, but consider another perspective. I paid just as much as you, and I have to sit awkwardly crammed into a corner for several hours because your girth encroaches on my space. That armrest you stuff down onto your sides, totally unusable for me unless I want to basically elbow you. That leg-room which is already cramped, I now have to sit with my legs angled into the wall, aisle, or another passenger. Every time you move, my seat shakes. Every time you adjust your arms, I get elbowed or rubbed against your sides or massive arms.
Think about it - if you sat next to someone that was constantly bumping or disturbing you, you'd get pissed and would complain. I tried it once - a large person was next to me, so I elbowed them back every time they violated my seat space. I got called an asshole and they complained to the stewardess. Suck it up, eat less, or pay for another seat. Just because America is fat as a whole doesn't mean it's a license to essentially rob other paying customers of their seats.
Kevin Smith, just pay for two seats. You can afford it. Save that "I'm trying to save money" for when you buy a new car, a second house, or asinine lush junk that you don't actually need. Ridiculous 'celebrities.' You never cared about this so-called 'issue' until it happened to you. Your privileged and jaded social perspective is absurd. Cram it.
Kudos to you Southwest - thank you for trying to make the skies comfortable again.
