Just a suggestion, stand with is abelist toward those who are unable to stand. Other alternatives would be: support, solidarity, back, advocate.
Despite her noble (/s/) intentions. the commenter exhibits tunnel vision. Clearly, "support" may harshly affect hernia sufferers and "solidarity" may impact the chronically constipated (which comprise a significant percentage of progressives, I suspect). Back pain is no joke either and, if we try real hard, we might be able to twist "advocate" into a comment on people with second jobs or hobbies...or even a guacamole addiction.
