apparently there is a market for this demented drivel..

Quote:
“I truly believe that a child cannot consent to being on a diet the same way a child cannot consent to having sex,” Sonalee Rashatwar, whose Instagram username is "The Fat Sex Therapist," proclaimed Thursday from the main stage of St. Olaf College.

She continued, “I experience diet culture as a form of assault because it impacts the way that I experience my body.”

These comments and more were made in the context of her two-hour speech, sponsored by St. Olaf College’s Wellness Center, Women's and Gender Studies Department, and Center for Equity and Inclusion, on the topic of “radical fat liberation.”

she throws this in at the end:
Quote:
“I do not think it’s surprising that the man who shot up Christchurch, New Zealand was also a fitness instructor," Rashatwar said. After making this claim, she added that the shooting is “a clear communication that there’s still an idealized body. Nazis really love this idea of an idealized body, and so it makes a lot of sense to me that a fitness instructor...might also think about an idealized body in this thin white supremacist way.”

The fat lobby continues to make fattness acceptable and mainstream. This is yet another example of liberals not understanding that the freedom to do what you want does not equate to freedom from the consequences of those actions. Violate norms, you get shamed or punished.

The fat lobby wants to change the norms to fit their lifestyle.

she presented this slide at her fat talk. why can't SJWs stick to their already-ludicrous topics without bringing in even more 'woke' excrement?

Swell, another fat-bashing thread. I thought these were confined to the fitness forum.

We live in modern and dense cities. We fly on jets with small seats, we use buses, trains with little space, we wait in dense waiting rooms.
To let yourself to get to such large sizes is an aggression and non-consideration of others.

Not to mention, they think we should adapt to them and that it should be considered normal, which it is not. If one wants to get fat, that is her business, but she should not expect everyone else to adapt and move the goal post to a new normal.

Our actions have consequences.
