Science is knowledge without fear or favour

Just in case anyone’s worried. No one who has any knowledge of it, considers “obesity science” to be the equal of bona fide science.

I’d like to take a moment to bring to people’s attention what is happening in Scotland right now, more specifically Glasgow. I’m not sure many of you even realise that yesterday we had the chance to vote to be an independent country, and overall, the run up to voting day was fantastic! There was such passion and positivity from both Yes and No camps, but that is now a thing of the past as since the votes have been counted and a NO vote has won 55% to 45% YES. George square has been the hub for many YES gatherings over the past few weeks, and I live in Glasgow and I’ve walked through them, and it’s been a really great atmosphere, but these pictures show what replaces that today. Within 48 hours it has gone from a scene of positivity, to complete anarchy, and the BBC has covered virtually none of it! I ask that you please be aware of the discord going on in Glasgow and Scotland right now, and if you’re in Glasgow please stay at home and be safe, this is not how it should have ended.

freedomforunicorns said: I just love how when someone sent you a polite ask which slightly disagreed with something you said and said literally nothing offensive, you replied with a load of really rude, swearing immature comments. She was just making a statement, whether she was right or wrong you didn't need to be so rude about it. You call yourself mature adults but when you talk to people like that I can understand why the body positivity movement get so much crap for what they're doing


You’re whining because I used strong language at somebody who was, in fact, knowing being insulting and rude, but I’m the childish one? You’re fucking tone trolling and being shitty, and I’m awful? OK, bigot. Sure thing.

And, by the way, as we have said many many times that you never ever bothered to look at, because you aren’t at all interested in what we actually have to say, only in being shitty to us for daring to be fat people who speak up for ourselves, THIS IS NOT A BODY POSITIVE BLOG. THIS IS A FAT ACTIVISM BLOG.


I just “love” it when you define people as disease, deny their lives, their efforts, pour scorn on them, erase them, debase them, silence them, exclude them from your conversation on their lives. Then ask them repeatedly stupid, inane and insulting questions such as, tell us why you’re human again it just won’t stick in my brain. Then expect to tell them how to respond to your grotesque impertinence and rudeness.

Frankly, I think it’s profoundly courteous that any fat person bothers to give you the time of day at all. It’s still much more than you give any of us.

alessandra-del-rey said: I have an honest question and I'm not a troll I swear. I've read your blog and I saw a lot of complains of your submissions are about joints/knees pains. Most of that problems could be helped if not fixed with a healthy weight loss (I'm telling you this 'cos I used to be overweighted and I had the same problems, but after my weight loss they stop, please keep in mind I'm not skinny at all! I'm around 65kg for 1'70m which is healthy). My question is, if someone suffers joints problems... [1/2]


[2/2] would you still say that person is healthy? Please, this is NOT a troll question, but a honest wonder I have. I don’t have a problem with fat acceptance and I understand I have somethings easier because of my weight… so not hate, please?

A) If you know it’s an offensive “question” — and that’s not actually a question at all, btw, it’s an assertion that we ought to do what you say — and you send it anyway, then it fucking well is a troll question, and you’re an asshole to boot. 

B) Not everybody’s knee problems are the same as your knee problems, and not all of them can be fixed by losing weight. You know absolutely fucking nothing about other people’s bodies.

C) Every SINGLE STUDY shows that the vast majority of people cannot lose more than 10% of their starting body weight and keep it off long-term. Every single fucking one. You did? Then you are one of the few. Bully for you. Do not assume that others can do the same.

D) What the FUCK makes you think that the people talking about knee problems HAVE NOT FUCKING TRIED WEIGHT LOSS ALREADY? And found that they are part of the majority who cannot lose a bunch of weight and keep it off? Especially given that, in fact, they have received your exact trolly advice a couple of times a day FOR YEARS ON END NOW?

E) Given all of the above, why the fuck don’t doctors give us advice other than “lose weight”. Other treatments exist. Too many doctors never bother to given fat people with knee problems any other options than “lose weight”.

F) YOU DO NOT, EVER, GET TO DECIDE IF ANOTHER PERSON IS “HEALTHY”, AND NOR DO I. “Health” is a bankrupt and meaningless concept. Shove it up your fucking ass.

"Not hate, please?" FUCK YOU.

You have added NOTHING to the conversation. I have not said ANYTHING here that has not been reiterated many times in the fucking archives. If this was really ”a honest wonder”, you could have gone and looked in the archives, rather than asked a question you obviously knew was going to piss us off.


Most of that problems could be helped if not fixed with a healthy weight loss

If this is what you truly think, why aren’t people like you enraged that weight loss is being left to calorie restriction dieting-presumably not exercise, which simply doesn’t work? Why are you okay that reliance on calorie restriction means most people who have problems will just have to suffer? What makes you so wrong-headed and incapable of hearing yourself?

I had an ED, that I was able to deal with myself. The idea that I would dream of imposing that on anyone else is unconscionable and senseless. Anything positive that enables anyone to get to their resolution must be made available. Not only that, more investigation must go into finding more solutions. The more the better.

More solutions also facilitates help for other things. A lot of answers come from contexts totally outside the ones they were intended for. And other solutions lead elsewhere too.

This response is absolutely normal. People don’t want others to suffer unnecessarily, or to force them to do something one way that not only doesn’t work for them but actively does them harm.

Unless they are so utterly vindictive and nasty, that they have deep problems indeed. 

As you don’t seem to be giving off an air of malice, I’m pretty sure the ugliness you represent is a product of the conventional calorie restriction method. It generates this kind of rank malicious loathing and inhumanity in the people that practice it.

Try and wake up to what you are really saying and recognize this mentality is regressing real progress for those who are in more trouble than you’ve ever been. They’re the ones who are paying for your nonsense and yeah, that makes you a troll. You don’t have to scream and shout to be one, as I’m sure you know.
