health & FATNESS

Fat people have had enough of messages from media, family, workmates, bullies or advertising that ridicule fat as being unattractive, a sign of laziness, ill health, etc. I, and many other fat women refuse to accept the body shaming of a $100 billion weight loss industry. Please keep bigotry, stereotyping and tired cliches off this Board. There are 100's of links to scientific reports here that prove "Health Equals Weight" is a bullshit myth.

No BS! (No Body Shame)

I’m Not “Curvy”; I’m Fat: How I Got Over My Fear of the F-word - "When you’re a fat woman, experiences like these are par for the course. It’s a debilitating feeling...to know that every talent you have, the intelligence you possess, the good point you just made – none of it matters when you’re fat. It’s completely invalidated when you’re fat."

If you're a fan of My Kitchen Rules watch out for one of its reviewers @benpobjie on Twitter. His cheap, lazy and unimaginative references to contestant Celine is classic fat shaming. Let him know what you think of fat bigots. I believe he too is fat which is no excuse to project his personal self loathing onto others. Using McDonalds references re fat people is the most pathetic level of commentary, let alone 'journalism'! GTFO!

'It's not surprising parents think the worst thing that could happen to their child is to grow up fat. It's not. It's far more damaging for a child to grow up feeling ashamed and unloved.'

Fat People Are Not the Problem — Fatphobia Is.*TW* in article. This is what happens when society demonizes fat people so much that they're considered sub-human: People don’t see them as human because they’re bombarded with the message day in and day out that fat people are diseased, defective, less-than.

Fat People Are Not the Problem — Fatphobia Is

I am fat. I have no problem whatsoever with the word 'fat'. It is just a description of my body shape. We fat women need to reclaim ownership of the word 'fat' and not be insulted by it anymore. Even in the size acceptance movement every adjective is used to describe a fat women - plus size, large, thick etc - except the actual word FAT! .

We're all fat again: More biggest loser' contestants reveal secrets Confirming what we know about weight science. About 5% may be able to keep it off long term. The rest will regain and a likely 60% will likely end up heavier. We also know that the behaviours required to achieve this kind of w/loss are often opposite of those needed to achieve health. Not to mention the mental and emotional distress of yet another perceived failure.

stella. If my big belly and fat arms and stretch marks and thick thighs offend you, then that's okay. I'm not going to hide my body and my being to benefit your delicate sensitivities.
