Oh my 🤦🏻♀️

I got called a bigot the other day for posting CDC data showing the average American woman is classified as obese using waist circumference as the standard of measurement.
My gosh. They act like it’s just straight up fat shaming.
They were defending some girls who "skinny shamed" and all 3 were probably at the beginning of the obese range (basing this on what I looked like when I was that BMI btw). And part of their defense was that these are totally normal, average women who aren't even fat.
All I said in response was "I do not think the fat shaming comments were warranted, but these women aren't a healthy weight. The average woman is overweight of obese, and we're just so used to seeing it now that most people don't know what an unhealthy weight looks like anymore. (CDC pdf study name listed as proof that average woman is obese)."
Their response, "you're a bigot for shaming totally normal, healthy women!"
The kicker? According to their comment history they have a fetish for borderline underweight, petite women... so how they can't recognize obesity when they spend all day simping for actual skinny girls(no shame to those women either obviously) is beyond me.
Oh my gosh. Of course fatshaming is never okay but normalizing being obese and unhealthy shouldn’t be either. I speak this through the lens of someone one has has had a BMI for quite some time; it’s not okay, it’s unhealthy and miserable. I don’t understand these people. I’m sorry you had to deal with that.
I just found it hilarious tbh.
I'm like 99% certain the person losing their mind over it and calling me a bigot was probably using those fetish pages as a form of "God I wish I looked like that" while also spewing the "I'm not obese! That's fat shaming! I'm perfectly healthy and this is just how my body is!"
Otherwise it doesn't make any sense. Though if that's actually true I feel quite sad for them that they've resigned themselves to pretending being obese is normal and fine.
In what way is it racist or a dogwhistle?
Don’t just go around throwing words like that.
Facts don’t care about feelings, harsh but truth hurts.
Here is a comment
“Food DOES NOT cause weight gain and saying “it’s genetics” is fascist science. Weight IS NOT REAL.”
Holy crap. I find it hard to believe they aren’t trolls.
i looked through your comment history to find the sub, and it’s a satire/troll sub. if you look at the post history of the users saying stuff like this, they’re either in other satire subs or they’re in subs like tumblrinaction and other “anti sjw” subs.
Well that’s a relief.
those people don’t know what fascism means other than “it’s bad”.
It sure sounds like they are trolls.
When it comes to health, obesity is like overdosing on some drugs, by the time you notice the damage, it's likely too late.
As someone who was at an unhealthy weight, this is definitely the truth. Once you lose the weight it’s kind of like you’re born again. Like life gives you a second chance.
OP, I'm pretty sure that you got bamboozled. I just looked at that sub and it's definitely satire. It's a bunch of racist bigots trying to mock leftists by doing over the top imitations of what they think we sound like. Check out their 'top of all time' posts they're pretty disgusting over there
Is fat a race now?
