where did the phrase “glorifying obesity” come from? that same jackass spin guy who invented the phrase “death panels” or whoever came up with the phrase “partial birth abortion”? so far i’ve seen it used to refer to:
- a fat person who is not twisting in misery in some way - a fat person who doesn’t hate being fat - a fat person who takes a picture of themselves - a fat person who has a blog - a fat person
and i’m honestly not even sure what fatphobic people even mean by it? also, what do they think is going to happen? they hate fat people so much that they think it’s cool to harass them on the internet and call them unhealthy (and hate people because of their perceived health status), yet they feel that a picture of a happy fat person is a serious threat? you live in a culture where your hatred of fat people and concern trolling about their health is socially acceptable; worrying that pictures of happy fat people are going to lead to a speed-gaining epidemic because being fat looks so glorious is pretty melodramatic and frankly fucking ridiculous.
i hope people see pictures of happy fat people and start seeing us as people and start treating us humanely. i hope unhappy fat people see pictures of happy fat people and start to think that maybe they could be happy in their fat bodies sometimes. if that is “glorifying obesity” than i am down for glorifying obesity and i’ll sing it from the rooftaps. i am fat and super fucking happy and it is pretty glorious. try it and we can share clothes.
Important sweatshirt. This is by Monki who have a knack of making kitschy stuff look arty rather than costumey, as my friend Ushshi pointed out today. I mean, this isn’t even my **signature style** but I’m so happy in my pizza sweat! pizza sweat
My shoes are an ancient charity shop find and the floral crown is sort of handmade, and the skirt was on ridic sale from asos. Cute cheap outfit!
I see a lot of body positivity for the fat girls who are really into make up and have a great fashion taste (which is great!), but what about the fat girls who aren’t? The ones who just prefer t shirts and don’t really like make up?? I think we need more representation of them!!
To anyone who says that they are "glorifying obesity"
Your rolls are not “glorious”
Sweat trapped under rolls is not good.
Stretch marks are natural, but when they are bold purple, and painful and tearing, its because your skin was not meant to expand so much, so quickly.
Neither are chafed thighs, red and raw just because of walking around too much, without coverings. Maybe because it’s summer and you got a new bathing suit. Maybe a dress or skirt. Its uncomfortable for a reason.
A bad diet very often will give you bad acne, which means that when you sweat, it stings badly.
Your knees hurting because you have trouble carrying the extra weight on your body, which was not meant to be there, is also for a reason.
Take time to notice that none of this is created by a “fat phobic” society.
This is your body telling you to STOP.
Stop eating so much .
To lose weight , you don’t need a gym or expensive foods.
Just think about what you put into your body.
Don’t treat your body like a trash bin.
Unhealthy foods aren’t “bad”, its just that they are treats, which you don’t need every day.
Drink water regularly, count the soda as a treat, because it’s not free of calories.
Lastly, stop pushing this shitty mentality that its OKAY TO GIVE UP ON YOURSELF TO CHILDREN.
A decent percentage of users on here are children!
This site is 13+
They have enough to deal with without fucking ADULTS telling them to inflict this pain on themselves.
So let me see if I can get this straight, a size 22 Model is glorified for being obese and having a pretty face, but a fitness trainer who lost all her baby weight and got her abs back by eating healthy and working out is a horrible person who glorifies eating disorders?
Fuck man, where do we draw the line and stop putting precious feefees before the honest fucking truth?
