Anonymous asked: Do you think that glorifying obesity promotes complacency in an unhealthy lifestyle? Sorry if I offended you by asking that. Not that I am implying you are unhealthy. I don't know your body. Do you find it wrong for me to feel that people who are obese should work towards a more healthy lifestyle? I still feel I am body positive. I think that everyone should try their hardest to feel beautiful. That being said, I don't believe we should encourage people to be complacent with unhealthy ailments.
I think that if you believe that “glorifying obesity” is a thing - you aren’t actually body positive. Essentially, you’re making the snap judgement that another human being is undeserving of presenting themselves in a way that makes them feel more comfortable or desirable.
Fat people are forced to walk a very thin line - on the one hand we’re apparently not allowed to be too fashionable or too beautiful , lest we give other fatties the wrong idea that ???? I don’t even know. On the other hand, GOD FORBID someone sees us in public in sweats or without hair or makeup done. We aren’t taken seriously that way and everyone thinks we’re one of those “bad fatties” and we’ve given up on life. What would you have us do? Make an effort in our appearances - but not too much of an effort. Try our hardest to feel beautiful - but don’t take photos of ourselves when we believe it. There is no winning.
The fact that you think it’s ok to decide for someone else when they can take a fucking photo of themselves is SO INSULTING. Do you know why we do it? Because no one else does. Because we don’t get to see our bodies anywhere. We have to create our own representation just to feel like HUMANS. And you call that glorifying obesity. Shame on you.
