‘Fat’ is not a bad word.
Ok, being unhealthy and at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes is a positive thing. Not everything in life has a fucking positive spin.
Do you ever question the health of thin people? Is diabetes exclusive to fat people? And if I am unhealthy (which you can’t tell by looking at me), why does it matter to you? Why would a stranger’s health matter to you? Maybe you should evaluate why my body incites anger inside of you. Question why the word ‘fat’ can’t be positive in your vocabulary. Research obesity myths and health at any size. And while you contemplate these things privately, please consider never reblogging my pictures or anyone else who is empowered to show their fat body proudly because you’re a shithead♥
My anger comes from people acting like being overweight is a healthy and positive thing. I know these things are obviously not exclusive to overweight people, but they are much more likely to be unhealthy. I’m not trying to attack anyone for being overweight or comfortable in their own skin, but everyone should try to have a healthy diet and exercise routine. Flatly saying being fat is something to be happy about is dangerous to society and doesn’t help anyone. Not a shithead, just not delusional.
Firstly, you never answered my question. DO YOU EVER QUESTION THE HEALTH OF THIN PEOPLE? Do you ever find yourself looking at a thin person and thinking, ‘Damn, do they work out or maintain a healthy diet?’ Do you ever think about the medical history of thin people upon meeting them? Probably not. Does it anger you thinking about thin people living a sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle and what that will do to society? Nope. Because your anger is fueled by a.) your own ignorance and misconceptions of fat people’s lifestyles, b.) thin beauty standards > health (its more about the attraction of a thin body and how fat bodies disgust you rather than the well being and health of the individual), and c.) your inability to listen to my suggestion of doing research.
You said you’re not delusional, but clearly you are… You first reblogged my photo with an assumption of my health and lifestyle. You have zero fucking credentials. You also don’t have superpowers to see someone’s health or life expectancy just by looking at them. DELUSIONAL. And then you explain that these diseases are not exclusive to fat people but fat people are more unhealthy than thin people regardless? According to what? I NEED REFERENCES AND A PROPERLY FORMATTED WORKS CITED FOR THIS BULLSHIT YOU MADE UP. I need to see your research, appendices, and footnotes for this term paper of lies that you’re trying to write. You’re still fueling your argument based off of assumptions and misconceptions. Weight does not dictate health, nor does it dictate how long you will live or how you will die. I told you to do research and you didn’t listen.
Fat people remaining positive about their body is dangerous to society? How? How is me living my life for myself dangerous to society? How could the love I have for myself hurt someone else? “Being fat as something to be happy about is dangerous to society and doesn’t help anyone.” But who is it supposed to help? Do you put these same pressures on people who are thin? Do you look down upon thin people who eat unhealthy? Do you get mad seeing thin people sit down for long periods of time? Am I supposed to be a spokesmodel for society? Again, do you ever question the health of someone who’s thin? NO. YOU ONLY CARE BECAUSE I’M FAT AND YOU’VE ASSUMED THAT MY LIFESTYLE IS UNHEALTHY. Like I said, take a fucking seat and do some research.
I’m going to close with this: BUT WHY DOES IT FUCKING MATTER? Why does my health matter to you? Why does my health matter to you? WHY DOES MY HEALTH MATTER TO YOU? Why does my fatness give you a right to say something about my health? Even if I am unhealthy, what I eat doesn’t make you shit. Even if I am unhealthy, what I do or don’t do is none of your fucking business. Even if I am unhealthy, on the edge of death because of my unhealthiness, you still have NO FUCKING RIGHT to question, judge, or insert your dumbass opinion in my life decisions. Do you have the right to live your life without the insertion of strangers’s judgement? Well, I and every other fat person deserve that right as well. Suggested Research: thin privilege, obesity myths, health vs. weight, how to not be an asshole, body positivity, fat positive, etc. Get on that research, boo♥
WHOO, YOU FUCKING TELL HIM!
Get it, girl~
Actually, yes I fucking do. I have a friend with a metabolic disorder that puts his bowels at risk, I’m thin framed, yet have had liver troubles, and most of my friends probably have high blood pressure from excessive sodium intake, just like I do.
Not to mention the fact that a majority of my immediate family is fat from improper management of metabolic intake. Yes, it’s bad to go and tease people about their body shape, and yes it is a tad presumptuous to think that they may be unhealthy for being fat, but goddamn you if I’m not going to ask someone who is in an immediate high risk category for certain conditions if they are are least practicing some degree of healthy dietary/exercise regimen, because we live in america, where that shit is common, and the last thing you need is to get your gallbladder removed or be forced onto insulin injections just because you were too fucking presumptuous about people actually asking you these questions to benefit your health that you go and continue unhealthy behavior out of spite.
Fat is not bad. But complaining whenever someone is looking out for you because they have some worry that you’ll possibly end up in a situation you don’t want to be in is fucking retarded.
Also, Anything involving fucking privilege is garbage, The obesity myths boil down to ‘being unfit is the statistically significant factor, not being fat’ which means jack shit because there are few causes of excessive weight gain outside of metabolism, activity, and diet, (not to mention the tables show that being overweight or obese while being unfit has higher rammifications than when you’re fit), though you will put on weight if you have too slow a metabolism or do not perform enough activity to effectively burn your caloric intake. Health vs weight: there is some correlation involving the BMI, which is used to determine obesity (due to the fact that muscle has higher density than fat, you can be heavier while having a low BMI.). As for not being an asshole: I recommend you start looking into it so you learn something called “Not everything is meant to demean you, you’re possibly excessively self conscious if you think that”. As for body postitivity and fat positivity, you need to learn that there is such a thing as being ‘too positive’, and that’s when you start being negligent because of it.
You’re the kind of person I want to punch in the face, because you react too fucking agressively to anything you view as opposition and inadvertently end up supporting unhealthy behavior, the same behaviors that have killed and hurt so many close to me, that I would never wish such upon others.
You’re upset because I addressed someone telling me I’m unhealthy when this person has never met me, never interacted with me, knows nothing about my life, knows nothing about my medical history, isn’t a doctor, and diagnosed me just by looking at a photo of me? I mean… okay. You win. You’re both ignorant.
When did I react aggressively? I’m on Tumblr. Nothing gets more aggressive than big bad bold capital letters. I mean for fuck’s sake, there’s not even an underline option to kick people’s asses with extra emphasis! A lot of what you said is ridiculously incorrect but I’m gonna let you have the mic back in a minute, Taylor. You can believe what you want, I don’t really care. You’re dragging me through a Twilight Saga of bullshit just to avoid admitting that this man was wrong for shaming my body and my assumed health.
I understand how emotional it is to care about people in your life and wanting the best for them, but I’m not in your life to justify your “concern.” My life doesn’t affect you or the other asshole. This picture could’ve never come across your feed and you would’ve continued living. And even though you disrespected me by a.) interjecting your opinion about my life, b.) calling me self conscious because someone shamed my health and my body, and c.) saying you want to punch me in the face over words on the internet, I’m sorry for what you’ve gone through. I’m sorry if health is a trigger for you and your experiences. But that doesn’t justify attacking anyone’s life choices or their body.
I’m not going to praise a stranger for looking out for me because these questions are stemming from assumptions about my health based on ignorance and misconceptions. I’m not going to praise a stranger for invading my right to privacy and my right to be left the fuck alone. I’m not going to praise a stranger that wants to pretend to be a doctor to justify shaming my body. I’m not going to praise a stranger that’s shaming my assumed health. I’m not going to praise anyone who shames me and then in the same breath, attacks me for my response to the shaming with calling me insecure or overly self-conscious. My health is none of your business. I don’t owe you good health. I don’t owe you explanations of what I do to take care of myself to prove my health. I don’t owe you anything.
^You deserve all the awards.

I can never watch that movie again since all those years ago with that one scene. Where they’re in the locker room discussing which race of men the main characters family would let her date and they go a black guy and the look on her face and the “hell no” of it all just made me not even want to…
The only people who are happy about oppression are oppressors
that means you
People who get scared of other peoples’ anger in regards to their oppression are usually oppressors
that means you
People who are more concerned with an oppressed person becoming angry and bitter than the fact that that person is being oppressed are usually oppressors
that means you
Are you seeing this pattern?
Ooooooooooooooooop..!! I’m gonna print this up and hand it out.. Gold..
