Not just flu season yall! Be careful with covid. I tested positive 12 days ago and it’s been hell.
i’m glad you mentioned the nuclear cringe that was “thin-washing.” their appropriation of terms like “white tears” and “white-washed” (among MANY others) is deeply nefarious. a thin collective of people aren’t attempting to make everyone forget that the enslavement, genocide, and forced sterilization of fat people happened. because, unlike the suffering of my people—and many, many others—those things have never happened to fat people on the basis of their fatness. fat people have not LOST THEIR FAMILIES AND LIVES because of “thin tears.” there were never signs outside of establishments saying: “no dogs, no blacks, no mexicans, no fats” never. never, ever. in fact, places like the heart attack grill exist.
in order to assign their lazy movement some unfounded credit, they attempt to latch onto the struggles of ACTUAL marginalized people. it’s not only uncomfortable, but WILD. advocate for anti-fat bias in the medical system, that sort of thing! if you desire to stay fat, that’s your right, despite the risks. i just don’t understand why they don’t concentrate their efforts on important things like that. instead, they concentrate their efforts on inconsequential madness like what is body positive, and what isn’t. they concentrate on how to best manipulate people into their lazy movement instead of studying why other movements need to exist. if your movement is required for the betterment of humanity, then you would not need to manipulate people into it by co-opting language used by ACTUAL oppressed groups. it’s so sad.
another excellent video! glad to hear you’re recovering. and ngl, the thumbnail is a sick tattoo idea lmao.
These people definitely need to get off tiktok and other forms of social media. The misinformation is so bad. I had to unfollow an influencer who had a person basically say “you taught me there are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ foods.” And she was lol’ing at the fact that so many people got upset at her take on this. Come on, I get it. You’re not bad for eating a box of doughnuts b/c you had a shit day or you have a food addiction. But you’re not going to LIE to people and say that processed foods are not bad for people. It’s literally causing increasing health problems in the U.S. Social media does more harm than good.
I just recovered from the flu. Absolutely BRUTAL. Glad you’re feeling better and back to the content!! ❤
They treat people like they’re in a pinball machine
Also the irony of someone on tiktok even talking about stealing/doing the same thing is hilariously sad
the FA movement is now just filled with 500+ lb people telling 300 lb people they’re not “fat enough” and they need to “check their privilege” which is both hilarious and sad
I agree with everything you said except the leap you made from “people with a kink” to “those perverts”. You may not have that specific kink and I personally certainly don’t subscribe to those enabling problematic behaviour in order to ‘feed’ their own kink, but labelling people with a kink as perverts ain’t it.
I see it as very #BodyPositive not ruining your health with lazyness and gluttony.
Plus people that don’t look like humans anymore are, very politely said, not attractive.
Shoutout to the fans of #BodyPositivity fighter Jamy Lopez who died a couple of days ago due to her morbid obesity.
It’s a movement of primarily middle/upper middle class suburban white girls cosplaying marginalization. That’s why most of them are also some variety of Tumblr Queer (Ummm excuse you I’m an afab femme presenting non dysphoric non binary person and a heteromantic demisexual, you’re JUST a privileged cis-gay) and has a laundry list of self diagnosed disorders usually including whatever is trendy at the moment (usually DID, BPD, or Autism)
Perspective is everything and I get why these people would think intentional weight loss isn’t body positive. From their perceptive, losing weight means they hate themselves but they can’t understand that for other people, it doesn’t mean the same thing. Their perspective is so insular though and they only take into account their own experience instead of acknowledging that anyone else could possibly feel differently from them. It’s just a cope to keep themselves from feeling invalidated by their poor choices.
I didn’t guys had fupas
This is such a weird mind-game. “intentionality” does way too much work for them. To my thinking, it usually doesn’t work long-term to think only in weight loss terms. Weight loss is passive–it’s the result of choices we make (easy or difficult as they may be) over a very long time, and it’s not going to trend perfectly in the downward direction every time we look at a scale. So, focusing on action (what we eat, how we prepare our food, how we move our bodies, etc) seems to work better. However, a lot of these folks take “intentionality” to mean that the very thought that something could cause weight loss makes it bad. It makes overeating and eating poorly into some radical positive political act, instead of self harm. Then, if they feel sick or upset about how that overeating impacts them, they have nowhere to turn. Getting fatter is not fun, but they think not getting fatter is morally wrong. That inability to actually win or find a healthy balance is just going to spiral them more and more as they get older and their weight catches up with them.
Honestly James(the thin, curly haired person in the second video) is honestly such a toxic person. I have had them blocked for so long, they will literally tell people that if you have a different opinion then they do not to engage with their content and block them. So I did.
I don’t date fat women
Honestly, loosing the 41 pounds I have this year has been one of the most loving things I have done for my body. I have more energy, my cravings are a LOT less and, in general I’m a happier person because I’m more confident.
What upsets me the most is that I now know how this dude shaves his pubes. My imagination just kicked in and I want to erase
this is going to sound mean, but if I were related to either of those two weirdos in the first clip, I’d move without leaving a forwarding address, change my name, and change phone numbers. Whoever birthed those cretins failed miserably to actually raise them with any sense or dignity. Jordan comes off as a creepy feeder with absolutely nothing of value to the world, and their friend is a deluded mess.
Good to know you’re feeling better!
Now he says that “intentional weight loss is not in line with fat activism” which is awesome to know because I do not intend on align myself with fat activism. So I’ll continue to pursue my intentional weight loss, thank you very much.
You are 100% right on how all women should be able to feel included in body positivity since there’s already so much hatred and stigma surrounding women’s bodies. Your last point was right on the money, too. If you’re upset about someone dancing to a TikTok song, you’re clearly so privileged to the point where that’s the only thing you can find to complain about. Also, can we talk about how the fat acceptance movement not only wants to exclude skinny people from body positivity, but remove their platforms altogether? I apologize but I have just been dying to talk about how a skinny person could post a picture of video of themselves showing off an outfit or a navel piercing, and you have a bunch of people in the comments accusing them of “body checking” and “promoting an0r3x1a” when skinny people should be allowed to show off their outfits and be happy to?? If fat people can shamelessly show off their bodies why can’t skinny people do the same? Taking Eugenia Cooney for example, though rather extreme, she seems to have a big interest in makeup and fashion, because that’s basically what her content is about. As far as I’ve seen, she has no intent in harming anyone, but if you look through her comment section, everyone is just absolutely fucking RUTHLESS. Body shaming her, and even slut shaming her by berating her for wearing revealing clothing, saying things like “she knows what she’s doing.” Even if someone is visibly severely underweight or struggling with a restrictive eating disorder, they still deserve to make content about the things they love online, especially if they don’t have any form of support in real life. It’s just really sad to see how these people in the fat acceptance community are so self-centered.
