Should fat people stand on the subway so they don't take up two seats when a train is crowded?

I had to run some errands downtown today and the Q train was fairly crowded when I got on. It was the newer type of train with the blue benches. On one seat there were three normal-sized people. At 34th St the two outer people got up leaving the man in the middle alone on the bench. Before two more people could take their place this huge woman told the guy to scoot over and sat down, occupying the space of two people. If the train was empty I wouldn't have been so bother by this, but during a busy time like this I felt like it was rude to take up two seats. The fat woman was probably 35-40 years old, and there were plenty of elderly people left standing who could have taken the two spots on the bench. Do you think fat people just don't give a fuck because they are so scorned by society? Don't you think their image would improve if they didn't do stuff like this?
