TFA: He goes by the name "Git," a 22-year-old man from Kentucky who is on a quest: to weigh as much as he possibly can.

Go be fat somewhere else. Go on, Git.

Look, I'm no stack of svelte myself, and I appreciate a healthy, no-visible-bones appearance in others. But people who intentionally bloat up to the status of long-lost cousins of the Hutt family are just as endlessly repulsive as the anorexics at the other end of the eating-disorder spectrum.

If you're unsure about a food item, just rub it on a piece of paper. If it turns clear, it's your window to weight gain.

Why don't these clearly mentally ill people have anyone in their lives who will get them help, rather than let themselves eat themselves into early graves (that will have to be twice the size of normal ones)?

I understand; people are heavy. Some people are even obese. But to intentionally make yourself as fat as you can? Just as bad as the "AIDS chasers," that were in the news a few years back.

Why not put that energy into doing something good for yourself instead of committing slow suicide? Well, I suppose it's because you are mentally ill. So why isn't anyone helping these people?

You know how Eskimos have 100 different words for snow? Given the obesity epidemic, we're gonna be like that, but with 100 different words for man-boobs.

Fatties use tactics such as denial and surrounding themselves with enablers such that the people who want to help them will give up at some point. Donna Simpson's a good example.

This is one of the most disgusting things I've ever read. Jesus. I'm no tiny person by a damn sight, but desiring to become this bloated gluttonous thing is insane.

serpent_sky: Why don't these clearly mentally ill people have anyone in their lives who will get them help, rather than let themselves eat themselves into early graves (that will have to be twice the size of normal ones)?

Well, there's people who don't take it to extremes, they just like being "normally" fat/obese then stopping. They still buy pants and don't look really out of the ordinary. They might waddle around, but they get around.

Definitely not my thing, but... YMMV.

HOWEVER. The last thread about Donna Simpson (who is 100% absolutely not one of those "well, I like being fat so I'll get reasonably fat and quit" people) intrigued me enough to google around the topic of "feeders/feedees" and it can indeed get quite horrifying.

If you can find the torrent, there's a documentary "Fat Girls and Feeders" about a woman named Gina and her feeder husband Mark. She gets up to 821 pounds, and he liked making videos of her, so you can see just what it's like to be 821 pounds.

She can barely scoot over to the side of the bed. It is horrifying.

So this woman Donna Simpson obviously wants to surpass that. Yes, disturbing as hell.

I recommend the documentary though, as a glimpse into a strange world I'd never heard of before.

Donald_McRonald: Fatties use tactics such as denial

These people are not in denial, though. They WANT this. It's different from a garden variety person who gets fat sort of "by accident" when they disengage from reality for whatever reason, and then is all about trying to get the weight off later.

In some ways there are parallels to be had with BDSM. That's a fantasy too, which can be dangerous if you're not careful.

itazurakko: These people are not in denial, though. They WANT this.

They want to be fat, but they'll use denial tactics like saying they're perfectly healthy, just bigger.

itazurakko: In some ways there are parallels to be had with BDSM. That's a fantasy too, which can be dangerous if you're not careful.

I know more about this than I'd ever want to thanks to the Donna Simpson interview on Howard Stern. Feeding/gaining and BDSM are very much analogous. In both there's the angle of making someone your prisoner (either by putting them in bondage gear or by making them unreasonably fat). The only difference is that once you've gained 600 lbs, there's no safe word to make you lose it all at once.
 
2010-07-01 02:00:39 PM  
I've lost 40lbs this year...so suck it fatties. Really simple...stop eating crap (for me, a low carb diet works best and I have one cheat on the weekends) and exercise (lifting weights and walking).

You know, I just ate a bunch of carrots as a snack because my pants are bit snug, and the fattie I work with had a bag of what looked like delicious chips, so there might be something to this idea...

Sometimes, the practice is sexual - so-called "feederism" -- when the gainer is aided by a "feeder" who takes on more and more control as the gainer becomes physically incapacitated.

I...I really just don't have the words....

Wouldn't horking down a bag of chips make you feel sick? The greasy coating left on the inside of your mouth and throat down to the lump in the pit of your stomach? Carrots are much better. Celery. Grape tomatoes. Broccoli. Cauliflower. Sugar snap peas. Fresh-cut spinach. Mmmmm... Don't start me on fresh fruit.

Screw it, throw these idiot gainers into the ocean, maybe it will give the Japanese some alternative to hunting/harpooning whales.

there were fat "feeders" in my high school 30 years ago. they were called the football and wrestling coach. how the fark these men got away with telling some non athletic fat lonely kid they should go supersized to be part of the team should be criminal.

FTFA: Those who are obsessed with gaining weight are known as "gainers," a once-underground proclivity that is squeezing its way out of the closet as the voices for fat acceptance grow louder.

So those who are obsessed with losing weight, by the converse of the term "gainers", are considered "LOSERS"?

Boy, talk about a self-inflicted enabler.

How come they can't name themselves something more appropriate?
Gluttons, Gorgers, Morbidly Retarded?

The sickening part is, we pay for their medical bills. Or at least subsidize them in many cases.

Too heavy to work? Organ failure? No problem. Taxpayers will carry -ahem- your weight.

It's really selfish, is what it is.

Well, let's not go too far. I'm from Wisconsin, and thus have to maintain a certain image on Fark.

AnnMarie, who runs a BBW web site told ABCNews.com she is not a gainer, but defends the privacy of a plus-size world.

when you're running fat websites and giving interviews to the MSM you've pretty much lost any semblance of privacy.
