To summarize the discourse:
>Being fat is not morally bad, what the fuck, don’t say that. Being skinny isn’t bad, either. Being any weight is morally indifferent. It’s a number y'all. Chill.
>Being overweight often plays into a variety of factor and I get that.
>Don’t bully fat people. Stop.
>Don’t bully skinny people. It’s not “okay” because they’re skinny. No. Stop.
>Actually, don’t bully people in general.
>Being obese is a medical condition that is dangerous to your health. One in three Americans is classed as obese. This is a problem.
>Being obese, again, is not a moral value. I don’t hate you (unless you’re an asshole outside of being obese). It’s a number. And it’s an unhealthy one. Look into ways to fix that before it’s too late.
>Institutional mistreatment of fat people’s issues is real. Very real. And must be combatted.
>However, being morbidly obese DOES make many treatments ineffective and surgery on high fat areas is very difficult and risky, as is anesthesia. Being fat may not cause the issue, and losing weight may not fix the issue, but in
many cases, being fat makes the issue worse.
>I DO hate you if you tell people obesity is 100% fine and healthy. I don’t hate you because you’re suffering from a medical condition. I hate you because you’re lying and your lies hurt people.
>I staunchly believe that “HAES” will be seen as the next anti-vaxxers soon. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
>But in general, hating people for their body type is bad. Don’t do it. Don’t be an asshole. Don’t be rude to fat people at gyms. Don’t be rude to skinny girls eating pizza. Don’t be rude to skinny girls eating salads. Don’t bully people. What the fuck even made you think bullying was acceptable.
>Tumblr is a subjective experience you define for yourself. If you don’t like me, or if you don’t like what I put on here, unfollow. I won’t get mad. I won’t care. I’m glad you’re doing what’s best for you, buddy.
