One of my best friends posted a lovely image of a fat person in their underwear, proudly showing off their body. The image read something that paraphrased meant that all bodies are beautiful and like not to let societal bullshit get you down, which is a nice sentiment.
A friend of mine proceeded to comment on how “being fat is unhealthy” and “don’t expect society to find your body beautiful if you’re going to showcase how unhealthy you are.”
Then people started jumping in to say shit along the lines of STOP SUBJECTING ME TO YOUR FATNESS and STOP TRYING TO FORCE ME TO BE ATTRACTED TO FAT PEOPLE and LOSE WEIGHT SO I DON’T HAVE TO LOOK AT YOU and YOU CAN’T BE HEALTHY IF YOU’RE FAT AND THAT’S OBVIOUSLY MY BUSINESS
NOBODY’S BODY IS PUBLIC PROPERTY
MY FAT AND FUCKING BEAUTIFUL BODY IS NOT PUBLIC FUCKING PROPERTY
I got pissed, I said that someone can be healthy at any size, said that they had no business spewing hate in a derailing fashion when it was simply a post meant to tell all people that they have beautiful bodies
As expected, I had this gem thrown at me:
“Looks like McDonald’s has free WiFi.”
Fortunately, my close friend (the OP) deleted the thread to stop any more foul shit like that. Fortunately, while my appearance may be disgusting to them, their personalities are disgusting to everyone and I can change my appearance. They can’t change that shit.
I then ate crabcakes triumphantly, joyously, and indignantly.
Nest time someone pulls that shit I swear I am gonna put on a tight short skirt and a belly shirt and I am going to sit on them while I stuff myself too full of fast food
