Fat people know more about being fat than you do

hellnoleftists:

So someone who suffers a heart attack knows more about cardiovascular health than his cardiologist does?

#fatlogic

Oh dear.

A person who has the experience of suffering a heart attack knows more about the experience of suffering from a heart attack. Unless the cardiologist has also experienced the same. Then both would be able to speak of their personal experience of having a heart attack.

Then there’s the issue of the human cardiovascular system. That has been pretty fully mapped out. Anyone can look in any anatomy book worth anything and see at least a simplified explicable version of said system.

Cardiologists study this, as well as real human anatomy. This means that their objective study sets out to match the subjective experience of having a heart attack. Because one informs the other.

That is not the case with the human metabolic system. It has-to my knowledge-no comprehensive anatomical model, simplified or otherwise.

'obesity' is a bullshit word that tries to sound like something its not. It fails to parse weight as a metabolic outcome. The field of study dedicated to it is more interested in maintaining its own idea of what fatness and weight is and operates within those dictates. Which is why unlike cardiology, its been pretty much of FA use.

Just compare what’s been achieved over the last 150 years of cardiology and the last 150 of ‘obesity’.

There are some things that shouldn’t have to be said to those who consier themselves clevah.

I was having know of those days where I did not love what I saw in the mirror. Then, on top of that when I went shopping to find some new clothes, misting for the 5K I’m doing next week, there was absolutely nothing! Last summer the store had SO MUCH! This year, nothing. I’m really bummed, but it just reminded me that there are very little clothing options out there for big guys! So now I’m even more determined to help guys feel good about their body’s be them big, small, muscular or anything in between. Just because I’m fat and a guy doesn’t mean I don’t care about looking good! #muffinmanmovement #effyourbeautystandards #fatshion #bigntall #fatguys #fat #plussize #loveyourself #bigguys #big

Black Wall Street Tulsa Oklahoma 1921 Full Documentary

The Tulsa Race Riot was a large-scale, racially motivated conflict on May 31 and June 1, 1921, in which whites attacked the black community of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It resulted in the Greenwood District, also known as ‘the Black Wall Street’ and the wealthiest black community in the United States, being burned to the ground. During the 16 hours of the assault, more than 800 whites were admitted to local white hospitals with injuries (the black hospital was burned down), and police arrested and detained more than 6,000 black Greenwood residents at three local facilities, in part for their protection. An estimated 10,000 blacks were left homeless, and 35 city blocks composed of 1,256 residences were destroyed by fire. The official count of the dead by the Oklahoma Department of Vital Statistics was 39, but other estimates of black fatalities have been up to about 300.

The events of the riot were long omitted from local and state histories. “The Tulsa race riot of 1921 was rarely mentioned in history books, classrooms or even in private. Blacks and whites alike grew into middle age unaware of what had taken place.” With the number of survivors declining, in 1996, the state legislature commissioned a report to establish the historical record of the events, and acknowledge the victims and damages to the black community. Released in 2001, the report included the commission’s recommendations for some compensatory actions. The state has passed legislation to establish some scholarships for descendants of survivors, economic development of Greenwood, and a memorial park to the victims in Tulsa. The latter was dedicated in 2010.

This is  the kind of history people need to know about before they start asking why Black Americans are not more like whoever….

levi-the-last-sassbender asked: Is there a limit to HAES?

thisisthinprivilege:

From what I understand (and I’m skeptical of HAES culture because I think it has the potential to support healthism, which is the moralization of health status, and ableism) HAES simply supports the health goals of people at any size.

Say there’s a “limit” to HAES would suggest people at some sizes should start harming themselves rather than pursuing health goals. Which doesn’t make much sense if you support health, but which is quite close to what the culture actually believes fat people should do.

-ArteToLife

To me haes is mostly about healthism- that is the currently prominent;

diet + exercise=health aspect of it.

I think that’s fine because fat people’s weight loss dieting efforts meant many of us got to do things that whilst they didn’t make us slim, were useful to us in our lives, especially when divorced from that context.

Haes’s limited for me not so much by its healthism, more in the fact that healthism has never convinced me as any kind of health panacea. In fact, I suspect its highly overrated as an agent of health. Though I’m prepared to be proven wrong on that.
