Preamble: it’s important to understand that there is a clear line between fat PEOPLE and fat ACTIVISTS. Not all fat people are fat activists, but almost all fat activists are fat people. For example: I am a FAT PERSON, but not a FAT ACTIVIST.
It’s also important to note that no, I DO NOT CONDONE HATRED BASED ON WEIGHT. Never, ever, fucking never. That shit is wrong, it’s disgusting, and if you do it, you’re a disgusting person.
I hate fat activists with a burning passion. I really, really fucking hate them, because as a fat person, they do more shit to harm me and others like me than anyone else I meet.
First off, you fucking arseholes, it’s not okay for you to call me a “fatty” just because you are fat. That word is fucking hateful, it carries with it the weight of a hundred thousand bad memories and I REFUSE to have it forced upon me by some stranger on the internet who thinks it’s totally okay when they say it because they’re fat too. No, you cannot arbitrarily decide that word is positive and stick it to me like some kind of hipster label. Fuck you, and your clique.
Second, how dare you try and tell me that I’m wrong to attempt to better myself. I know that I am not healthy at this weight, and I want to change that, and fuck you right in the ear for attempting to discourage that with lies, with hatred, and with accusations. Fuck you for every time you’ve posted “losing weight is impossible/unhealthy/morally wrong/etc”.
Thirdly, you blame all your problems on society but the problem is YOU. Unless you are actually paralyzed or have some sort of chronic pain condition, there is no excuse for not at least trying. The problem isn’t society, it’s YOU. YOU are lazy and unhappy and you blame it on everything but yourselves.
Fourth, I hate you because you try to tear down anyone who doesn’t fall in line with your bullshit. You claim anyone who tries to lose weight is a self hating sadsack or is “just after privilege”. Honestly, you’re the ones full of self hatred, because if you were actually confident in your looks or believed your bullshit, you wouldn’t be so angry and threatened by other people trying to lose weight.
Normally I wouldn’t be this angry, but months of people telling me I need to “love myself” when I reject their rotten, decaying movements is starting to wear on my patience.
I reject your movement because to an extent I DO love myself enough to want to be healthy and it’s taken me so long to get here, to get to this point, that I refuse to let a bunch of lazy, pathetic, self centered, asshat naval gazers spew tired “love yourself” rhetoric at me in an attempt to drag me back down.
Take the beam out of your own eye before trying to get the mote in mine.
