A barrister provoked outrage yesterday by claiming that the victim of an alleged gang rape was so fat she would have been 'glad of the attention'.

Right, 'cause rape only happens to single, pretty, THIN females. *rolls eyes*

haywagonsmom is all up in this chick's grill because she can't possibly be fat! if the girl believes she's fat, she's fat. making a post like this to call out how she's NOT FAT ENOUGH just screams AWFUL CATTY BITCH to me. yes, i see the irony in making another post about a post about a post. but damn, if this isn't the place for it, i don't know where is.

so with that in mind, my fat ass is calling out haywagonsmom on her extreme jealousy and hatred of anyone who isn't as fat as she is. is it just me or does this drama keep going in a big fucking circle?

and in the interest of full disclosure, I'M FAT. a true 24 and shaped like a gooddamn beach ball. but i would never shoot someone down in fatshionista who is smaller than i am. that isn't how i roll.

So yeah, I was sitting out on the back porch with the father, the best friend, and her boyfriend. We are talking and then we approach the issue of body image and so I asked him what he thought of Mariah Carey's body. "She's fat," he replies. So this is fat? Supposedly, this is the biggest Mariah's ever been.

Later on, my best friend remarked that she doesn't think he even knows who Mariah Carey is.

I was speechless.

Alright many of you have probably heard the story about the woman who had a 93 lb cyst removed from her ovary. (If you haven't, you can find the story here: http://www.tulsaworld.com/NewsStory.asp?ID=070128_Ne_A13_Patie28429)

Anyway, it's quite an amazing story. This woman originally weighed 563 lbs, couldn't understand why she couldn't lose weight, then they discovered the cyst. Since it was removed, she's lost 20 inches off her waist and 139 pounds.

This story was posted to a group I believe to (I'm too lazy to look up the post), and a bunch of people responded with "Still, the cyst was only 93 pounds and she weighed 563. That's disgusting that she let herself get like that, blahblahblah... die fatty die"

How she'd let herself get this way? Despite the fact that it's NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS, let's use a little rudimentary logic. Cysts on the ovaries will often cause hormone imbalances and cause women to gain weight and make losing weight a challenge. Be reminded that these are cysts that, on average, are smaller than a ping pong ball. I'm going to assume that a 93 pound cyst is going to FUCK SHIT UP, colloquially speaking.

Also this is not fat which can be distributed in any fashion, the is a solid mass which weighs 93 pounds. Next person to say "I don't understand how someone would let themselves get like that!" gets a 93 pound weight attached to their ovaries (the prostate, for the gentlemen) to see if they feel like going for a fucking jog.

Also, they missed the part where she had already lost almost 80 pounds before they discovered the cyst. That's quite amazing, considering the challenges mentioned above. She is obviously a very strong and determined person, not definitely not lazy at all. (So unlike a fatty, eh?)

It's shit like this that really convinces me that fatphobia is alive and well. People are so quick to distance themselves and openly comment and judge another person's body lest someone might think they might be *gasp* fat.

An Open Letter [Feb. 10th, 2007|10:41 am]

Dear Body Police,

It has come to my attention that being fat is great (with caveats)! I've heard a lot of noise from your camp lately telling me that my fat body is only acceptable if I'm healthy. And, as an interested party, I'd like very much to discuss the specifics of your guidelines so that I can get a better idea of how I too can be a Healthy Fat Person™.

From what I understand, a fat person is a beautiful person worthy of love and respect if they've done their part to stay healthy. This means--and please tell me if I'm getting it wrong--that I should do everything I can to reduce my fatness, and if that still doesn't work, then I am allowed to settle into my rotund (but FIT!) body and celebrate it.

Ok! So, I'm assuming exercise is a requirement. That's totally obvi since we all know that at all costs, I should avoid perpetuating vicious stereotypes about fat people being lazy by exercising. After all, I should be an asset to my kind. But what kind of exercise counts? I get shortness of breath during the long walk between my couch and my fridge, so that counts for something, right? Ok, I kid! But really? How many times a week and for how long should I be exercising in order to rid you and everyone else any doubts about my laziness?

Now, let's talk diet. Not that kind of diet, since we all know they fail 90% of the time and don't really work anyway. But still! I should be eating healthy and again, stay away from letting myself be a disgraceful stereotype to my own kind by ingesting foods that are bad for me. My question is, how far should I take it? Should I immediately go on a macrobiotic or raw vegan diet? Or is vegetarian with exceptions for fish ok? What if I'm like, on my period and RILLY craving some cheesy fries and a cupcake? Do I automatically become an Unhealthy Fat Person™ if I cheat once in awhile? Some guidance would be quite helpful here.

Finally, and this is a big one that's been weighing on my mind, what kinds of health conditions render me unqualified for Healthy Fat Person status? I know the obvious ones like aching knees, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol immediately disqualify me, but what about something like an underactive thyroid? You see, my slow metabolism has, in part, contributed to my fatness (which I suppose could put me in the category of Unhealthy Fat, But Not My Fault™), but that could also be a chicken and egg type of question. What about PCOS? That seems like a similar bind to be in. And, not to get all theory-etical or anything, but what if I like, get cancer or something, and doctors discover tomorrow that there's a chance that my fat might have caused it? What if it's only a small chance? Is there a percentage requirement here?

Oh! And, before I go, I've seen you all do such a great job of making sure that people know your positions on healthy vs. unhealthy fat people, but I think maybe we should step it up a little bit and warn the unhealthy ones about the consequences of their harmful decisions. Sure, we all know unhealthy fat people are doomed to early deaths, but I think we could throw in something about being an asset to the community by helping to divorce fat people from stereotypes about twinkies and couches with permanent ass prints in the cushions by being healthier and exercising. These are just some thoughts I had!

Anyway, I realize that I totes just filled up your ear (eyes!) with lots of questions, but you see, I am sick and tired of being one of those Unhealthy Fat People and, with your guidance, I'm ready and willing to step up to the path of righteousness!


Much love and lots of squishy (but FIT!) hugs,
bias_cut

All right, we already have debunkingwhite, but what about creating a community called debunkingthin? Who is interested?

Awwww, yumiko, don't like us plus-sized women taking back the word "fat" to describe ourselves? So i'm sorry, I can't agree that the naafa is a good organization. They don't have the right defination of themselves and therefore, how is anyone else supposed to have the right definition of them? they want to be 'accepted' because they are fat, not because they are people and because they deserve the same respect as anyone else. I don't see anything like that 'elminating' discrimination, I see it as creating more of it.

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, obesity is almost as bad as terrorism. Oh yeah, and obesity is worse than what happened on 9/11.
