GLORIFYING OBESITY or as fat people call it: Existing while fat

Obesity is about as beautiful as depression, schizophrenia or Cancer.
All are potentially lethal and none should be celebrated.

You’re a fucking worthless asshole. You provide literally no value to the world, yet obviously YOU want to be celebrated for being utterly disgusting trash.
Aside from you missing the point by proving the point that worthless trash assholes like you label mere existence while fat to be “glorification”, fat IS beautiful. And you know what? So is depression, schizophrenia, and cancer. As someone with loved ones with ALL of those conditions you trotted out as obvious horrors, FUCK YOU for wanting to place limits on the possibilities of their lives. What the FUCK is your problem that you felt the need to take people down a peg for having depression schizophrenia or cancer? What makes you so fucking entitled to reduce their lives to cautionary tales to aid in fat shaming a stranger, you fucking piece of shit.
No, sorry, that was unfair. Shit is at least the result of nourishment and that certainly can’t be said about you.

Goddamn I love a good shouty post.

Heads up guys.  Body shaming doesn’t just happen to women.  Recently, baseball player Prince Fielder stripped down for ESPN’s Body issue and here are the comments that accompanied.  Now, I will acknowledge that these are all male contributes, but it’s still shining a light on fat shaming for men, and how athletes (and anyone who poses nude) are socially expected to be perfect.

I’m not going to downplay the amount of shit women get on their bodies, but I would like to point out that this made news today.

the looks of confusion on people’s faces when you refer to yourself as fat in a completely neutral, casual way will never not be my favorite thing

Oh dear, yes! Ha ha!

“Fat people have the right to exist in fat bodies regardless of how we got fat, what being fat means, or if we could be thin through some means – however easy or difficult. There are no other valid opinions on this – we have the right to exist without shaming, bullying or stigmatization, period.”

Our segment on The Feed aired tonight. Here it is in convenient youtube form! Pls enjoy this screencap of me reading a magazine with Michelle Bridges on the front.

Not so much a siren call as a siren warning me away…

I find it helpful to keep in mind that weight-loss messages are prejudice for profit.

I know what it feels like when someone cares about me and when someone doesn’t.

A few years back, when a government expert pointed out that fat people aren’t dying in droves, none of the “obesity” mongers were the teensiest bit glad. Turns out, they really hated the idea of fat people not dying. Jenny Craig did not do the happy dance. Weight Watchers didn’t throw a party. The stomach amputationists and the stomach squeezers just urged more healthy people (at lower weights) to risk their body’s ability to absorb nutrients. (If nutrition is really so important for health, why get rid of the organs that do that?) The FDA has a bad habit of approving diet drugs that are deadly. The $60 billion/year weight-loss industry is not just okay with their product’s ~98% failure rate, they rely on it for repeat customers.

These people do not act like they care about me. They seem kinda…dangerous.

[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]
