The following year, she had to backpedal after she suggesting Kim Kardashian was a "ho" in an interview with The Telegraph.

Who expended energy disputing that? Kanye?

Fatties don't like being reminded that they're fat. They want people to pander to them, and pretend that being fat is unrelated to their eating habits, and has no affect on their attractiveness, capabilities, or health.

Sharon, why are you obsessed with getting plastic surgery? Something to do with being devoted to a man who continually cheats and once tried to kill you with his bare hands? You behave like a very insecure person who could never stand herself. Please, get yourself some psychiatric help before you push your insecurities onto others.

Eh, I wasn't going to respond to this but...

Fatties don't like being reminded that they're fat.
- Reminded? Do you think they forget?

They want people to pander to them,
- Maybe a few here and there, but generally they don't want to draw attention or receive special treatment - it's embarrassing.

and pretend that being fat is unrelated to their eating habits,
- There's no pretending, they know. They're usually aware they need to exercise too. Well, the smart ones anyway.

and has no affect on their attractiveness,
- Fat people have no illusions that they're hot. Perhaps a few, but that's only because they've been pursued by someone with a fetish.

capabilities,
- I'm assuming you mean physical stuff. Yeah, pretty sure fatties know they can't do the sports too good or climb mountains and stuff like that because of the excess weight.

or health.
- They're certainly aware of that too. Every time they get an ache or a pain, get winded walking up a flight of stairs, or have to take 2 minutes to get fully off the couch to a standing position the first words out of their mouths is usually something like, "Damn, I gotta lose this weight." And I have no doubt their doctors are constantly telling them the dangers of being fat. So, yeah, fatties definitely know the weight is bad for them.

Great post. Used to obese. Have seen the "oh God, that fat bastards looking at me!" look many times.

I had a couple of periods in my life where I was overweight. I was really physically uncomfortable. Clothes don't fit. I was lugging around extra pounds...etc.  I was 20 lbs overweight at my worst, and it just felt physically miserable. I don't even imagine to know how it feels to deal with being obese, and I never want to find out. I have been at my 22 year old weight for years, but staying here is in a word: grueling.

Yeah. I'm a fat person. Less now, but I was 330 at one point. (6'4, 260ish now)
It's not like you don't know you're fat. It's not like you don't know why. Sure, there are the rare genetic conditions, but most fat people are just fat because it's way, way easier than working out.

It's not healthy.
It makes everything harder. Except I guess holding doors closed and squashing grapes for wine.
Sexy is subjective, so whatever. But sex isn't as good (at least if the guy is fat. I got winded easily and sweated a lot. Now... I assume I'm still bad, but I don't sweat)

Try not to be fat if you can

I was thin until I hit my mid-60s. All those big bellies around me that I thought were 30 or 40 lb bellies are actually 80 or 90 lb bellies I have since learned

I've been running 20 or 30 lb over for a couple years now and I don't like it at all.

Even just dropping 10 lb off a 30 lb load, I can feel the health benefits

So then what is with the drive to normalize and beautify? Because that really does happen, we see it all the time in the media. Project runway adds plus size models, the fat acceptance movement is real. Why do you think that is?

Intermittent fasting is a great weight control tool (not loss, control) Just don't eat between 7pm and 11am if you have an office job, or 7 and 7-8 if your job requires actual work.

As long as you're not a pig, you can be pretty cavalier about what you eat and you won't gain weight. Shoot for 5 hours of exercise weekly. I got a rowing machine. It's awesome.

I try to follow the late breakfast / early dinner model, and basically eat whatever I want (while always being mindful of carbs) at those meals.

Along with my work (when I used to have that), which involves lots of walking and ladder climbing, I walk my dog about 3 miles a day.

Definitely not killing myself, but still a good low impact workout.

Seems to me that the "body positivity uber alles" people are just as damaging to most fat people's psyches as the fat shamers.  Both groups need to knock it off and actually help people get healthy. "Dude, lose some weight" and "You're beautiful just the way you are, darling" aren't helping in the slightest.

Biology.  We're attracted to calorie dense food like oils, fats, and sugars because we evolved as hunter-gatherers and eating those kinds of foods in preference to other less calorie dense foods when the high-caloric foods were available meant you were less likely to starve to death.

In a time of relative food scarcity and large amounts of physical efforts to attain it, this is an evolutionary advantage.

Today, with such foods being plentiful and little effort required to acquire them, it has ceased to be an advantage.

I think it became "normalizing and beautifying" over time. I think the phrase "fatshaming" started off as simply, hey don't be mean and discriminate against that person just because they're fat.

As this movement progressed it started being more about everyone is perfect just the way they are! When in actuality that isn't true because some people are just downright unhealthy. However, somebody living an unhealthy life style shouldn't mean another person, often a complete stranger! has permission to make fun of him and make him feel less than a person.

Speaking of somebody who has of June 2019 was 230 lb, The day I started weight watchers I pounds myself one thing that I would actively not succumb to former fat kid syndrome. in case you're not familiar former fat kid syndrome is that ability to say hey I did this why can't you!?
You want to say to someone "you're fat, go away" f*** you. That helps nobody makes you feels superior. invite that fat person to go for a walk invite that fat person to go for a hike and invite that fat person to do something outdoorsy, that's fine. The other issue with losing weight is there's no immediate gratification. You stopped doing drugs you stopped doing drugs. You stopped drinking you've stopped drinking. but nothing like that with losing weight you don't know this too much except over time. So if you don't know the person then they're losing weight they may appear fat to you.

Ok, so, let's say, for the sake of argument, this is correct. And, you know, maybe. I'm a fat guy, making decent progress, and all of what you say is true personally, but the other fatties in my family don't seem to think that way at all.

So then what is with the drive to normalize and beautify? Because that really does happen, we see it all the time in the media. Project runway adds plus size models, the fat acceptance movement is real. Why do you think that is?

Who decided we should accept fat people, if not fat people?

You can never really tell with fark. Some days you aren't allowed to criticize a person, because feelings and shiat. Some days you get to make all the fat jokes you want.

Depends on the flavor of the hypocrite and the direction of the wind.

Fatties don't like being reminded that they're fat.
- Reminded? Do you think they forget?

They want people to pander to them,
- Maybe a few here and there, but generally they don't want to draw attention or receive special treatment - it's embarrassing.

and pretend that being fat is unrelated to their eating habits,
- There's no pretending, they know. They're usually aware they need to exercise too. Well, the smart ones anyway.

and has no affect on their attractiveness,
- Fat people have no illusions that they're hot. Perhaps a few, but that's only because they've been pursued by someone with a fetish.

All of this. I'm currently fatter than I'd like to be, so I'm working on it by switching up my diet and trying to get back into an exercise routine. When I had a free gym membership, I was doing several treadmill miles a day (it's all weather, smooth terrain, and helpfully monitored my speed and distance for me, which is why I preferred treadmill running to trail running).

LucklesWifeder is also on the heavier side, so again we're switching diet. She's wheelchair bound and has various chronic pain issues, so can't exercise as much. We both hate our current weight and have achievable long term goals about getting thinner and healthier.

I was obese in 2013. My weight was over 205lbs. Then I started researching ways to lose weight and asking questions to the healthier people at work. What I found is that you lose more weight by changing your diet (long term, as in for the rest of your life) than through exercise.

I began eating healthier meals, avoided highly processed foods (such as frozen dinners, canned pastas), and cutting sugar out of my diet. Within six months, I lost about 40 pounds.

I did increase my exercise by trying to take 10,000 steps a day, and I feel it helped but avoiding unhealthy meals helped more. But however you choose to lose weight, good luck and I hope it works for you and your wife.

It's marketing. As people listened to more and more food marketing, they ate themselves into fatness. The whole effort worked so well that now we have to have fat normalization, and fat marketing, and fat clothes, and chairs for fat people, and billions of dollars of weight-loss products, and gym products........and as you can see, this is an entire new market of body obsession--getting fat, accepting fatness, losing weight, idolizing slim sexy people, making clothes to make fat people look sexy, etc etc etc.

Naw, it wasn't US accepting it. It was advertising, giving us a new group, a new tribe to be in. Someone important, someone who wears "big beautiful woman" sizes, and not "plus size." It wasn't US making it normal--it was our culture, trying to sell us stuff. And for obvious reasons, a lot of fatties think this is just great, and will drive this one into the ground, right into "I gained 500 pounds so that I could be a fetish camwhore."

It's all a market, and we're all special, as long as we will spend money on it.
And you swear it doesn't happen, and oh my god, I am not that STUPID, but oh my god--yes you are.

You're delusional. I don't care if this makes me "unpopular." The truth needs to be said. The obese are constantly telling us that they're just as beautiful, healthy, and "fit" as non-fat people. The entire messaging of the "anti-fatshaming" crowd is that being obese is a perfectly fine choice, with no downsides, and it's the rest of society that has a problem.

And don't you dare suggest that being fat is unattractive---you'll be told you're "superficial," and judgmental, and that being obese is just as attractive as being trim. And of course, it's genetic, and there's nothing they can do, and don't you dare suggest they stop shoving so much food in their face, because "they don't eat any more than you do," etc. etc.

The whole thing is an exercise in self-delusion and excuse-making.

And yeah, as to my user-name....I used to be really fat. Now I'm not. Because I put a little thought and effort into it. Frankly, society could use a bit more shame, because it's effective.

That's fine, because being thin is an objective good. It's good for oneself, it's good for one's partner(s), and it's good for society at large. And being a former-fat is particularly good, because it's a sharp reminder for the fat-defenders that being fat IS a choice....a bad choice.
