LOL at some fool going “it’s not about you and your personal issues” when it comes to talking about the ‘obesity epidemic’.
So when schools try to implement discriminatory curriculum, essentially saying “you have to lose weight or take an extra class or we won’t let you graduate,” can we talk?
When doctors explicitly come out and say “I will not see you if you are over 200 pounds” to women, can we talk?
When fat people suffer from discrimination in the workforce, then can we talk?
Or are we just going to sit here and listen to you talk at fat people, saying the same old bullshit folks have been spewing for the past decade?
Because folks want to talk about ‘health’ and it always ends up with the solution of ‘make the fat people go away’ in order to fix it.
Funny how we never mention how Health at Every Size is a feasible option for health maintenance that has actually IMPROVED THE MENTAL STATE of the person because they don’t fucking beat themselves up mentally for having a goddamn cookie.
Funny how there is NO body diversity in the so called ‘initiatives’ to aid in ‘combating obesity,’ no showcasing that a varying array of bodies can exist and be healthy. Nope. Errybody healthy is skinny as fuck and look like they belong on an Abercrombie and Fitch ad.
Funny how nobody seems to talk about the amount of ableism that exists rampantly in these ‘initiatives,’ giving NO consideration to those who CANNOT GET UP AND GO.
Funny how nobody talks about how they fucking FABRICATED ‘OBESITY DEATH RATES’ to the millions when it was TEN TIMES LOWER.
And I find it REAL funny how NOBODY EVER TALKS ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY FUCKING LOWERED THE BMI AND THUS THE GOVERNMENT CREATED THEIR OWN EPIDEMIC…
