bilt2tumble reblogged your photo: “Fat” is an adjective - not an insult. »»…
And, can we talk about the…. Obsfucation generally encountered when a fat person is trying to convay ANYTHING regarding their experience? Really? Really?!! The meaning behind the original post is SO confusing, it’s SO VERY obtuse that people just CAN NOT figure out what the OP is trying to say (or it’s just flat-out wrong).
Or is it that they don’t WANT to hear it?
I can honestly say, in my YEARS of internet experiance, that I’ve seen maybe a handful submissions / posts / entries / articles ANYWHERE regarding Fat Acceptance where some idiot hasn’t chimed in pointlessly to ask for a specific definitiion. Or to go on about how INCORRECT some granular element of a concept, statement or argument regarding Fat Acceptance, Body Acceptence, HAES, the absolute definition of ‘health’, or the absolute definition of the WORD ‘diet’ is (often with no more basis than someones opinion). So the whole thing must be invalid.
And then, of course, an explanation of no-less than 500 words MUST be submitted by the OP for minute examination so that something else wrong might be found with what they’re trying to say.
It all starts to become rather obvious that they have no interest in the actual message and are just looking for ways to distract from it or obscure it entirely. And then people wonder why, when perhaps sincere questions are asked, the Questioners are oftern met with exasperation or hardy rounds of ‘DIY’ or ‘It’s not my JOB to educate you’. Wanna blame someone? Blame the nitpickers and the electron microscope equiped, logic-go-round Folks. They don’t WANT to get it. But, rather than going on their merry way, they’d rather waste YOUR time with bullshit and psudointellectual crap. To show you how impressive they are. And how wrong YOU are. No matter how stupid their arguments actually are.
Welcome to the Internet, I guess.
Thank you for saying all of this, you pretty much just described my constant life struggle.
