Oddly enough, when I was looking at the images of "curvies" I thought about pools and how many of them would win a cannonball contest.

serial_crusher: 12349876: I'm not arguing humans have evolved in the past 50 years. I'm arguing they HAVEN'T, and that why genetics are an issue, society is evolving much faster.

Ah, so it's the scientists who are to blame for people being fat, because they haven't figured out a way to re-engineer our bodies to thrive on gluttony and hedonism.


Not at all.  If you read all my posts in this thread, I've stated this is a difficulty not a death sentence.  Some people can eat whatever they want and maintain good weight, some people have to be incredibly disciplined with their eating and exercise, there's only a teeny tiny sliver of people who are doomed to be fat.

I'll dial back the scorn and shaming etc. by acknowledging the fact that the only one who can make you change your lifestyle is you.  I didn't stop spending hours on my ass playing WoW and eating shiat because my girlfriend nagged me about it.
 
2014-01-17 06:57:02 PM  

gaslight: This is beyond stupid. A person who exercises is being shamed for not being...what? Fat? Her message 'what's your excuse' is somehow demeaning? Okay, allow me to substitute some other images for a busy mom who's making a point to try living a healthy life despite being busy because apparently that's too hard for most people.

For most of us Curvies, we will have rolls, bumps, lumps, scars, stretch marks, surgery scars, breasts that are natural and that have breast fed our babies.

Eh, no. If you look at what she called "Obesity", it's not talking about having a few extra pounds or even 20. These people were obviously, unhealithly overweight. And she's right. Normalizing obesity is one of the worst things we can do.

I love all the hate that gets heaped on "fit mom" for being ugly.

Nana's Vibrator: While on the show (in November) you weren't working out nor were you raising your children properly.  And now, because of the rules, you shall be known as Unfit Mom.


eviljimbo: she's got bug-eyes... cant diet those away


megarian: Can't really fix derp eyes.


OhioUGrad: She may be "fit" but she's been beaten with an ugly stick on several occasions and she's a narcissistic moron (so she fits in on FB).

I gladly await pictures of the gods or goddesses that grace your arm when you go out.

funny how people that get upset about being called out for being fat (something they have control over) take shots at her looks (something she doesn't have control over).    So not only is there cognitive dissidence about their own weight, they are petty and mean about things she can't change....I honestly don't know which is worse.

So, ignore her.

Help the Facebook mods solve real crimes/dilemmas, please.


Well it is a hate crime, do you know how bad fat women have it in today's world!!!?

There is actually a tumble site called This is This Privilege which lets whales biatch about how they are oppressed because of fat. They say its a medical condition and they can't get under 200 lbs.

In England, you have to pay a tax if your car is not "green".  However, having a morbidly obese person in a car that is otherwise considered "green" causes it to lose its fuel efficiency to the point where it is no longer green.

Conclusion:  If we're going to tax cars based on how green or not green they are, shouldn't we do the same for people?

Even more ironic since you can't typically hop on a treadmill to fix an unfortunate face.

there are plenty of people who don't have control over their weight (perhaps you should read up on the subject). The females I've dated have all been much more attractive than her (and I don't care if you believe it or not), she's putting herself out there as a holier than thou authority....I have no problem reminding her that she is ugly (inside and out).

baconbeard: People are obese for one simple reason: they don't make living a healthy lifestyle a priority,
They'll spend hours a day on the Internet or Facebook, but "don't have the time to cook healthy meals". They'll watch TV or play video games for hours, but "don't have the time to go for a daily half hour walk". They'll eat out at fast food restaurants every day, even though they know they shouldn't.

It's not genetics, it's not thyroid conditions, it's not evolution, it's not HFCS... it's simply a matter or priorities...


Or it's a spinal injury that doesn't *seem* that bad to the observer but requires painkillers to sleep for more than two/three hours, and even then the pain doesn't fully go away. Plus it causes all kinds of other fun issues with the body. Of your list, I am guilty of internet and computer games, but that's usually after I can't stand up anymore for the day.

Yaaay ~25% disability...

2014-01-17 07:23:29 PM  

hasty ambush: Maybe not by the pound but by percentage body fat.  The BMI thing is stupid.  And I can handle increased taxes on booze to cover health care costs.

But instead of targeting junk food which even us health non-fatties enjoy from time to time we can go directly to the fatties and impose a % body fat surcharge on their helaht care premium and allow grace periods for things like pregnancy and other medical reasons..  But because you had a kid two years ago would not be an excuse to be fat now.


You don't think that would cause a whole host of OTHER problems though? Such as bulimia, anorexia, other eating disorders, depression, perhaps even suicidal tendencies? "Fat shaming" already causes enough of that, making obesity even *more* anti-social would just exacerbate the problem, IMO.

Women, especially young(er) ones, are already faced with enough pressure on "having the perfect body" - and we already know the affects it's having on these women as they grow up. We sit here and call out the people that shame them because the (bullied girls) don't have the perfect "Thigh Gap", yet on the other side of the coin we're going to biatch about people being overweight? We're hypocrites.

You, like Fit Mom, have taken things a bit too far.  But Fit Mom needs to keep her mouth shut just as much as the fat people need to.  I get it, fat people know they are fat, they have plenty of pressures on them and they don't need constant reminding and shaming.  So stop telling them they're fat.  But the fat people feel that way because:  Being fat is unhealthy.  Part of what Fit Mom is biatching about is fat people are trying to make being fat something to be proud of.  You should not be proud that you are fat.  You can call it curvy all you like, fat is fat.

There is a good sized range of healthy weights.  But there are a lot of women who are morbidly obese who are pushing back as if that is something to be proud of.  It's not.

GoldSpider: The My Little Pony Killer: How about people mind their own damn businesses about what somebody else's weight/exercise/eating habits/whatever and don't worry about that shiat?

It becomes my business every time my insurance contribution is deducted from my paycheck.

The My Little Pony Killer: No? Don't have enough going on in your lives to feel good about otherwise?

Lost 35 lbs. and have since run three half-marathons, so I have plenty to feel pretty awesome about.


If that's the case, then your running is my business, and you're at substantially greater risk of injury running than using machines at a properly supervised gym. Please cease running immediately.

Probably no way to really find out, but when I worked in a pharmacy one of our top drugs was synthroid and thyroid problems can be a big contributor to weight issues (under and over).

You're right, of course. Being overweight is unhealthy, and you shouldn't be "proud" to be fat.  But TBH, I don't think I've ever heard someone say "I'm proud to be fat". (If you're proud of it, then why are you dieting?)

I've heard people say "I know I'm fat, I've just accepted it at this point", or "I'm fat, but I'm happy", but I can't honestly say I've heard someone say they were *proud* of it (at least not with a straight face). :)
 
2014-01-17 07:52:09 PM  

theMightyRegeya: "Kang's comments didn't deserve to be banned, even if they weren't the most enlightened or sensitive."

She said, ""While I think it's important to love and accept your body, I was a little peeved because while I feel like it's ok to love and accept your body, I think that we're normalizing obesity in our society."

I can't disagree there.  The whole "Fat Acceptance" thing is bullshiat.  It's telling you that these people are sexy and healthy and you're an asshole if you say otherwise.  Or, as they say in the article, they're "sexy as hell".

Dr Dreidel: And yes, this means that she who fires the first "volley" is going to get the most scorn. "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool..." and all that.

Well, it was the Fat Acceptance people who went after her first, when she posted her "What's your excuse?" thing to her own wall, to be seen by her followers, who are likely* to be fellow fitness buffs.  I don't blame her for firing back, and what she said was incredibly tame compared to the "Curvy Girls" eye rape.


*to spread it around on their walls, as it is an inciting/challenging photo/caption?
I mean, it's great she can do that- she's a fitness coach, that's sort of her job, all day, everyday.

Her challenge is to those people who have the 3 babies, and have another job for 8-10 hours a day, who know they should go to the gym, but kind of want to go home to their kids, and make dinner, and eventually go to bed.
That is kind of a key difference, here. 8 hours a day devoted to working out to make your business more profitable vs. 8 hours a day making a different sort of business more profitable, and then being expected to go to the gym for another 8 hours a day, just to keep up with her.
