FULL-FAT HUMANITY

Not here to "debate" my life


What's this about?   Ask me anything

What I don’t understand the most about blogs like thisisthinprivilege (TITP) and other blogs that promote fat acceptable through overgeneralized statements about thin people or “thin privilege” is that they often are totally feeding into, or ignoring, or excusing, society’s shitty attitude towards women and their looks in general.

I know TITP is largely run off of submissions (though I still have no respect for the mods either), but there’s tons of posts talking as if all thin people - usually women - are confident, and have life so much easier.  Yes, there are certain things thin people don’t have to deal with that fat people do, and they are judged differently than fat people.  But it totally ignores the unattainable standard of beauty for ALL women and ignores the fact that society is so warped that it’s convinced women of every size and shape that they’re not good enough. 

I can understand wanting a blog to vent about people being shitty to you because you’re fat, but doing so in that way accomplishes absolutely nothing constructive.  Fat acceptance should be done in an environment of body acceptance and respect for EVERYONE.

Privilege is assigned on a group basis. It’s not based on a person’s individual opinions or how nice / not nice they are. It affects the way slim and fat people are treated having a formative effect on them that’s often evident in their experience, comments and point of view.

they often are totally feeding into, or ignoring, or excusing, society’s shitty attitude towards women and their looks in general.

A blog about being dehumanized and disembodied by the medical pseudo-science patriarchy would seem to cover society’s attitude. Getting on board with pathologizing fatness has degraded all women. Fat acceptance has started to reverse that already and it has barely started. 

Fat people’s experience tells us quite a lot about how sexism enables the pathologization of women. by defining people as inherently deviant and wrong. Plus using that to define men as the correct and standard. Slim women have become disconnected from fat women by such a process.

but there’s tons of posts talking as if all thin people - usually women - are confident, and have life so much easier.

That happens when slim people are positively objectified and go along with it. You can’t define slimness as healthy, good and noble then moan that this is unrealistic. The time to protest is when you are being used to degrade others, not when they’re trying to counter that.

But it totally ignores the unattainable standard of beauty for ALL women and ignores the fact that society is so warped that it’s convinced women of every size and shape that they’re not good enough.

The two are not mutually exclusive. You are not either fat or woman. There’s nothing more “unattainable”, than trying to redesign biology.

I can understand wanting a blog to vent about people being shitty to you because you’re fat, but doing so in that way accomplishes absolutely nothing constructive.

Obviously based on your own perception, discounting the numerous voices who’ve gotten real value and been personally changed by the existence of fat acceptance. Feminism has undoubtedly dropped the ball here.

Fat acceptance should be done in an environment of body acceptance and respect for EVERYONE.

EVERYONE" respecting fat people in the first place that would have been that.

I understand the whole body image thing and society. but promoting clearly overweight people is promoting something unhealthy. So instead of putting overweight people on pedestal lets focus on the over weight ladies and men who realise there size is unhealthy are are doing something about it.

Love it when my “SPEAK OUT AGAINST FAT-SHAMING” poster gets fat shamed.

This poster is fabulous.

Thin privilege isn’t having articles about people like you illustrated with pictures of fatty foods instead of, you know, people like you.
Because obesity = ice cream cake. Obviously!
Article is here.
-ArteToLife
Note: Not to mention the screamingly bad fatphobia in the article, where the blatant attempt to socially engineer fat people using health-like propaganda is tortuously evident.

Thank you for saying this ATL isn’t it just? What disgusts me the most about using “research” to prompt behaviour and give fat people scripts is the continued degradation of academe that’s so prevalent in the ‘obesity’ field. These people don’t respect or believe in anything, they just see tools for acquiring knowledge and learning in terms of how they can manipulate and maintain control over people. 
We can look forward to fat drones in the media insisting they stopped hating themselves because of the AMA, buuuut, they’re having to reconsider because they no longer take responsibility for their ‘obesity’.
And/or reports about “increased costs” from those who feel good about themselves versus those who feel like shit etc.,The number one rule of fat phobes is that they will hawk any belief, press any cause, sell out anything to keep on with this. People talk about the surveillance state but what about an elite who wants to replace your experience, your consciousness with their bullshit version?

'obesity' is the coup d'etat that has happened within every fat person. fat acceptance seeks restitution through a counter (internal) revolution.

Notice she avoids saying “Fat people have been trying to tell us diet’s don’t work and we wouldn’t listen.”
When everyone thought we were to blame. It was easy to blame. Now they’re realizing its not simple, there’s no apology nor mea culpa. 
I want every fat person to grasp the full magnitude of their honour. I want them to accept it fully and act from that knowledge always.
We took the blame. We accepted responsibility and sought to make amends. All of us.
Never forget that again, ever.

Overeat mostly free 2014

eloisebecomeshealthy:

Intuitive eating is teaching me so much but I still struggle with boredom eating. 

I think the TV, the Internet (hours of scrolling), and sitting on my backside for too long is causing the boredom.

I just need to figure out what stops the boredom:

  1. Sudoku,
  2. Walking,
  3. Attempting Yoga,
  4. Reading,
  5. Jogging,
  6. Cross Stitching,
  7. Listening to Music (not for long),
  8. Face masks,
  9. DVDs,
  10. Sewing in general.

I need to remember these next time I nearly overeat!

11. Stop hating yourself. 

12. Being able to read your thoughts and reactions more honestly, because you’re not trying to suppress them.

13. Overcoming negative feelings about your body-thereby liberating yourself to explore more of what it can do.

14. Not continuously apologizing for your own existence/body.

15. Not feeling the need to make endless gestures of subservience to fat phobes or any other bigots.

16. Applying your beliefs to those unlike yourself

17. Overcoming habits of mindless obedience

18. Stop playing the ‘obese’ role

And so on..

I’m being serious these things make yourself and the world more interesting…

#boycottobesity

  • The medical establishment does not own your body or your life. #boycottobesity
  • Because disease is discovered, not decided or “recognized.” Disease is not supposed to be an instrument of social control. #boycottobesity

  • Things like #IAmNotADisease demonstrate a vote of no-confidence in the medical establishments attitude towards fat people. #boycottobesity
  • People should be entitled to refuse to participate or be branded by useless and harmful pseudo-science. #boycottobesity
  • Because people should not be objectified and forced to debate their own lives. #boycottobesity
  • It’s primarily useless pseudo-science, that has achieved little to nothing of any use to anyone. #boycottobesity
  • "Obesity" is imposed on those it purports to study and is wholly unaccountable. #boycottobesity
  • Partitioning human beings across weight lines- and pathologizing some, erodes our understanding of what it is to be human. #boycottobesity
  • All so-called “obesity related conditions” happen across the weight scale. For “obesity related” read “Human related.” #boycottobesity
  • Because it sets everyone else against fat people, including fat people themselves. #boycottobesity
  • Size is on a scale that can be studied as a whole. There is no special enclave solely for studying tall people. #boycottobesity
  • The purpose of medical science is to discover diseases not create them. #boycottobesity
  • Because fat people didn’t asked to be separately classed. #boycottobesity
  • Because studying fatness or fat people separately has never made any sense. #boycottobesity
