First of all, fat does not automatically equal unhealthy, but I’m not even going to get started on that because I’ll be here all day.
Here’s my real question: So fucking what if it is unhealthy? You cannot use the “It’s unhealthy” excuse to try and stop fat people from being okay with themselves unless you also give shit to every single person who smokes cigarettes, drinks alcohol, sneezes into their hands, and doesn’t brush their teeth at least twice a day.
All of those things are unhealthy. ALL OF THEM. And just like poor eating and lack of excercise, every one of those choices taken to the extreme can cause death. So unless you vocally and actively oppose every person who lights one up or takes a drink, you do not get to vocally and actively oppose people who are overweight, who by the way, for all you know, could very possibly be exercising and eating just fine.
Being concerned for people’s health is not a “grab bag” event where you get to pick and choose which of their habits are acceptable and which ones aren’t, because it’s not your body, it’s not your life, and it’s none of your fucking business. End of story.
Really great points made on fat health that I should have made yesterday!
